This Northern Michigan Getaway Cabin Is So Secluded, It’s Best Accessed By Boat from Lake Superior

Plenty of Michiganders head ‘up north,’ when they’re looking to get away from it all. This cabin along the shores of Lake Superior is so secluded, the best way to access it is by boat.

The cabin, which is currently listed for sale at $159,000 by Great Lakes and Land Real Estate is located on Fourteen Mile Point (named for being about 14 miles north of Ontonagon) on Sleeping Bay in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The listing describes the property like this:

MICHIGAN LAKE SUPERIOR FOURTEEN MILE POINT VERY SECLUDED CABIN FOR SALE – BEST ACCESS IS BY BOAT! This stunning Fourteen Mile Point property is lying on Lake Superior’s south shore, on Sleeping Bay. It is 22+/- Acres in size, and has 440+/- feet of frontage! Beginning at Fourteen Mile Point, a 10-mile shoreline sweeps eastward. This property is on some of the least accessible shoreline on the southern shore of Lake Superior. State highways don’t reach this area, and access is by logging roads. Because of the relative inaccessibility of this area very little private development has taken place. There are only three private shoreline properties here, that are surrounded by thousands of acres of State of Michigan Lands.

The Fourteen Mile Point Lighthouse

Down the shore from this property is a former lighthouse described as the most grand and remote lighthouse on the Great Lakes. However today it stands abandoned, described by the state of Michgian’s tourism bureau:

Fourteen Mile Point Light Station is located on private property some 14 miles east of Ontonagon. The old trail the keepers used has long since overgrown and has become impenetrable. While views of the station can be had from a boat, we ask that anyone attempting to photograph the station honor the privacy rights of the owners, and do so from offshore.

A few hearty adventurers have filmed a visit to the lighthouse including this one in lake buggies that look altogether like way too much fun.
