N8969 Deerton Deerton, MI 49822
Log home set on the banks of the Laughing Whitefish River with 54 private acres in Alger County, MI. Located near the historic town of Deerton on Deerton Road, this old homestead acreage has a modern log home with a riverfront setting to die for. Positioned to view up and down stream as close to the water as possible; this serene setting provides a peaceful view and sound of the Laughing Whitefish River. This is just three miles or so from the River's mouth at the shore of Lake Superior where there is a public access. The river is fast moving in the Spring and Fall with a nice flow throughout the year. The Laughing Whitefish has resident trout populations and sees lake run steelhead. Ducks, geese, turkeys, eagles, grouse, and deer frequent this location and were seen or heard on my last visit alone. The acreage encompasses both sides of the river for the ultimate privacy. The land is nicely wooded with a mixture of mature species. There are several clearings with old remnants of settlement days that included apple orchards and perennial flowers. The property is well maintained with a nice trail system to help enjoy the acres. This would make a wonderful hobby farm with endless garden options and room for animals if desired. The home is a rustic style, three story log home with over 2700 square feet of living space. The ground level is full block, like a basement and finished with a bedroom, bath, living area, and full kitchen. This would make a great live-in apartment, bed and breakfast, or vacation rental. The second level has an entire wrap around covered deck with several sitting areas accessed from the kitchen, dining area, and master bedroom to take full advantage of the riverfront. An open living area with high ceilings, gas fireplace, and plenty of windows for natural light is the center piece of the home. There is a large entry closet and half bath complete with laundry. The master bedroom has a large full bath with whirlpool tub and balcony overlooking the river. The third floor has large bedrooms on each wing with a full bath and sitting or office area that overlooks the living room with river views. A rooftop balcony adds a great touch to this level and provide a stunning scene of the grounds. A huge pole building with a walk-up loft that is completely wired adds unlimited possibilities for a workshop, hobby farm, and equipment storage. The home has in floor radiant heat on the first and second level with an outdoor wood boiler directly connected. There is even an outdoor sauna that is wood fired and complete with in floor heat. All of this lies within 1/2 hour drive of Munising and Marquette and just minutes from public accesses and sand beaches on Lake Superior. If you love the U.P. outdoor wilderness feel and want your own piece of it, you have to consider this great opportunity.
