Escape to your own private island paradise with this breathtaking 33-acre parcel, located just 3 miles south of the Garden Peninsula on enchanting Summer Island. This untouched gem offers the ultimate seclusion and privacy for your off-grid hideaway. Nestled along a rugged, rocky shoreline and densely wooded with majestic cedar trees, this property is a nature lover's dream. With a westerly exposure, you'll wake up to stunning sunrises and the tranquil sounds of Lake Michigan. The south boundary of the property adjoins Summer Island association land, ensuring that your surroundings remain pristine. To the east, your property borders the State of Michigan, which owns over half of the island and is part of the Lake Superior State Forest. This Summer Island site is steeped in history, with evidence of human civilization dating back thousands of years. Radiocarbon dates indicate three distinct periods of occupation: the earliest dating to around 70 through 250 A.D., the second to approximately 1290 A.D., and the final coinciding with the initial European contact, around 1620 A.D. or a few decades later. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of this land. There is also the potential to buy the adjacent lot to increase your acreage, and frontage along the water if you are seeking a larger parcel. Access by boat only.
