An Up North Home, conjures thoughts of a cabin in the woods or a cottage on the lake. It may be a home that has been in the family for generations or simply, just a daydream. Northern Michigan offers many lakefront log homes for sale that are scaled to host large families and plenty of guests. I have two such waterfront log homes for sale right now. Each of these homes, are one-of-a-kind and carefully crafted to take full advantage of their breathtaking water views.

In Northern Michigan sits a truly one-of-a-kind estate. In the small town of East Jordan, located just east of Petoskey, sits a 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 4,420 square foot home with just over 3,000 feet of waterfront property. “Point of View” estate is situated along the shores of Lake Charlevoix. Surround by 60 acres of hardwoods, this hand-scribed log home allows for endless enjoyment of all outdoor activities that northern Michigan has to offer. This retreat of a home also features a 6-stall horse barn, a fixed pier dock, impressive landscaping, a hand-crafted bridge, riding trails, and even a guest house.

If you’re going to have a log home on the water in Michigan, why not have it “Up North?” With renovations completed in 2009 this 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom log home, now has a kitchen that includes slate floors, granite countertops, medallion cabinets, and a WOLF oven/cooktop. A grand stone fireplace is the focal point of the living room that also has hardwood floors, and of course a stunning view of Walloon Lake. A large lawn leads down to your private beach that already has a dock in place, just waiting for your boat.  

Make One of These Homes Yours

Summer days spent on the boat, fall nights around a bonfire, and cold, snowy days curled up in a blanket around your fireplace is exactly how time should be spent in Michigan. Each of these log homes is unique and offer different amenities and features. However, the one thing they all offer is breathtaking water views all from the comfort of your next home.
