MOTIVATED SELLER - MAKE OFFER - MICHIGAN HUNT-FISH-SNOWMOBILE CABIN FOR SALE! - This 2.5 Acre wooded property is located in Chippewa County in the far eastern end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula! The Eastern Tip of the U.P. has been an important area for natives, settlers, and traders for hundreds of years. It was named Giwideonaning by the Chippewa, which loosely translates to point we go around in a canoe and then similarly named detour or the turn in the river by French fur tradesman. Some of the early European explorers included Father Marquette, Louis Joliet, Antoine De La Cadillac and Sieur De La Salle. This area is a haven for outdoor adventuring - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, this area has it all! The Village of Detour is located just a HALF mile to the east. There are over 30 miles of groomed snowmobile trails with scenic views of the river and Canada, and when the ice is safe, the River is used as a trail between the US and Canada. In the Spring mushroom hunters and bird watchers tour the area. Eagle, Osprey, and Common loon sightings are common. Summer is dominated by water sports, boating, fishing, sailing and beachcombing. There you will find an 88 slip full service (gas, diesel, water, power) marina, 3 boat launch ramps, and marine services (including a lift), and RV pump-out. DeTour Passage is a natural point channeling ships bound from Lake Huron to the locks at Sault Ste. Marie into a narrow strait between the eastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Drummond Island. You can go there and watch freighters passing through the DeTour Passage. The fishing is fantastic and is regarded as one of the best Salmon Fisheries in the state, perch, pike, walleye, herring and sport fish are also available. Commercial fishing survives to this day. Restaurants, shops and sporting goods stores thrive during the summer. You can enjoy the 4th of July parade, the hot fishing spots, the DeTour Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored Salmon Derby, or just hunt for Pudding Stones on the many beaches. Many take advantage of the slow pace that the fall brings each year. Scenic drives to see the remarkable colors of the changing leaves are common. Winter sports thrive in DeTour. They include snowmobiling, fishing and cross-country skiing. There are over 30 miles of groomed snowmobile trails with views of the river and Canada, and when the ice is safe, the Saint Mary's River is used as a trail between the US and Canada.
