Cabin #3 has 1,148 feet of frontage and 17.95 acres on the Pere Marquette River. An easement to Mac Road, which Lake County plows in winter and maintains year-round, provides access. This cabin is high above the river with dramatic, long river views. Eagles regularly fly by at eye level! Because it was built before the Natural Rivers Act, this cabin is closer to the river than is allowed for new construction under the current 150-foot setback. This grandfathered status allows replacement or expansion by up to 50% without a zoning variance. This is unusual and highly desirable as it allows proximity to the river and views which are not possible with new construction. This is a well-maintained building with vaulted ceiling over the living/dining area. It was built in the 1980s in chalet style. There has been only one owner. This is the first time it has been listed for sale. Electric power is underground. The cabin has a well, septic system, and 1000 gallon propane tank. The main floor has a living/dining room, a kitchen with a built-in dishwasher, two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a utility room. There is a metal wood stove. The upper floor has a full bedroom, a divided full bathroom, and an open loft area. The total living area is 1,716 square feet. The interior finish combines paneling and drywall with laminate floor coverings. The exterior siding is wood, the roof is metal. Sliding doors lead to expansive deck areas with lovely views of the Pere Marquette River. Currently, it is rented by Unsalted Vacations. They advertise, book rentals, and a crew cleans up afterward. The existing two linen changes are included. See the rental page at wwwunsaltedvacations.com. The Pere Marquette is a National Wild and Scenic River that has been recognized as one of the few trout and salmon fishing rivers of this quality remaining in the nation. It has large populations of resident brown trout and world-class fishing opportunities for steelhead and Chinook salmon.
