Entire Michigan Inland Lake And Recreational Lodge For Sale.. This beautiful 160-Acre property totally surrounds 45'-Deep Spring Lake which is in Republic Township in west-central Marquette County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. You can canoe, kayak, swim and fish right from the front yard -- and enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets from the Lodge. Like most lakes in Michigan, Spring Lake could be described as a kettle lake - the term "kettle lake" describes the way the lake basin was formed as the glaciers receded. A block of ice broke off the glacier. Soil, rocks, stones, and gravel filled in around the block of ice. When the block melted, a bowl-shaped hole, called a kettle, was created. Spring Lake has a good rocky bottom which has supported plantings of Rainbow and Brook trout in the past, and currently features excellent fishing for panfish - smallmouth bass and perch, as well as crappie, and bluegill. Anglers can catch fish from their watercraft, or spend relaxing time casting right from the large doc system. CFA Land is located to the north and east which allows walk-in access, with appropriate licenses for hunting, trapping, and additional stream, river and lake fishing. This area has good hunting for Blackbear, Grouse, Turkey, and Whitetail deer. The Lodge was placed on the beautiful sloping property to take advantage of the panorama view of the lake, island, and boat launch area below. A Stairway system provides access to the shoreline. The Ranch-Style Lodge from the approach, has a close-to-the-ground profile, and sleeps twenty. The exterior features a traditional simple low-pitch roof line with wider eaves.
