80-ACRE MICHIGAN WOODED PROPERTY WITH HUNTER'S CABIN FOR SALE! This property is located near the center of The Stonington Peninsula, which is a finger of land that juts into Lake Michigan from the southern coast of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. With the Stonington, the Nahma and Garden Peninsulas are part of the 291 square miles of land that make up DMU 121. The area contains National and State Forest Lands, Private land, with areas of agricultural lands and lowland deciduous forests. This mixture of lands, the relatively mild winters here, along with the more productive and longer growing season, produces favorable habitat for Whitetail deer. Their preferred food sources of grasses, hardwood leaves and lily species are widespread throughout. The area is known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks! The property is bordered on the north by Hiawatha National Forest Lands, which has thick, old growth timber and it is only a half-mile walk from the property to Lake Sixteen. This 117-Acre lake is only about five feet deep and provides water for wildlife and waterfowl. The Stonington plays a crucial role in the migration of the Monarch butterfly, which gather on the peninsula in September before migrating across Lake Michigan to Door County, Wisconsin. Thousands of monarch butterflies are seen in the surrounding cedar trees during this time. Also, because many smaller birds won't cross bodies of water if they cannot see land on the other side, the Peninsulas allow birds to work their way south down the Peninsula, then island hop to Wisconsin - making this a paradise for viewing the birds migrating up the peninsula in the spring, and down in the fall! It has been called the Point Pelee of the Upper Peninsula, because of its similarity to the lush Carolinian forest oasis at the southern tip of Canada, called Point Pelee National Park. The Hiawatha National Forest programs to assist migratory birds has been successful, so bird watching for shore birds, loons, raptors, osprey, and eagles has become a highlight of this area. The Stonington is surrounded by the Little Bay De Noc on the west, Big Bay De Noc on the east, and the main body of Lake Michigan on the south. Fishing these waters is only a few miles away from the property being offered for sale. So if fishing is your sport, you'll find year round walleye, trout, and perch available. At the tip of this body of land is the Peninsula Point Light, which has been called over the years both the Peninsula Point, and the Point Peninsula Lighthouse. It was built in 1865, following the United States Civil War, and was in active service until 1934. Several groups, the Stonington, Michigan Grange, the Forest Service, and the Civilian Conservation Corp have worked together to repair the ten-sided tower, and other buildings and create the picnic grounds that are available to the public today. Other area outdoor activities include hiking, x-country... Continued In Addendum
