Location

Watersmeet, Michigan, United States

The property is in a strategic location, just over the northern border of WI in the upper peninsula of MI. It offers the seclusion of being adjacent to the Ottawa National Forest , but has easy accessibility to the many inland lakes, hiking trails, state parks, snowmobile trails as well as proximity to town. From this hub, there is something for everyone. Motorcycles can take scenic drives through the Porcupine Mountains or Black River Forest Scenic Byway. Snowmobiles and ATV's can wind through the trails and forestry roads. Lakes abound for boating and fishing. National and State forests offer great hiking, scenic views, hunting, and in winter cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Watersmeet is a great location to begin experiencing the activities you are looking forward to in the Northwoods!

For many years John and I traveled to the Watersmeet, MI area to camp in the state and national parks, and snowmobile the many trails. Finally, we decided to purchase a small home to use any time of the year. Eventually we found what would become known to friends and family as the "Little House". The wooded property not only bordered the Ottawa National Forest, but it also provided easy access to the activities we enjoyed. From our location, we hiked the forest paths and walked along Duck Creek listening to the peaceful sound of water tumbling over rocks looking. We could jump onto the snowmobile trail with our sleds or ATV's. With the many lakes surrounding us, we could easily trailer the kayaks and fishing boat for leisurely days on the water. Several waterfalls are a short drive away. The location is semi-secluded, yet walking distance to town. Recently we bought a retirement home in the Watersmeet area, and have decided to share the comfort of our "Little House" and its central location with people such as you. It offers the opportunity to branch out in any direction to to take advantage of all Upper Peninsula has to offer. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we did.
