Sometimes you have to step away from the complexities of modern life in order to carve out some meaningful quality time with the people you care about most. What better place to cultivate treasured family memories than your own private lakeside retreat? Michakewa Shores, a new 66-acre community near the Lake Huron port city of Cheboygan, offers a total of 29 spacious homesites on Long Lake, one of the most serene locations in northern Michigan.
Each one-acre lot includes more than 100 feet of direct lake frontage along a diverse shoreline ranging from sandy beaches to shallow bluffs. Pine trees, birch trees and hardwoods provide natural frames for your sunset and lake views, and the master plan incorporates 40 acres of shared open space, with paved roads, underground utilities, private boat and trailer parking, nature trails and a community picnic area. Long Lake is an all-sports lake that accommodates fishing, waterskiing, jet skiing, canoeing and swimming, and steady breezes from the west make this a perfect spot to put in a small sailboat. Add a dock to your property and experience the best of laid-back waterfront living.
Restaurants/Food Service Residents will have easy access to a variety of shops, restaurants and commercial services in and around the Lake Huron port city of Cheboygan, about 10 miles from the development.
Outdoor Activities At Michakewa Shores, there’s no need to leave home if you feel like going for a swim -- just walk to the edge of your property and jump right in.
Unlike typical warm-weather destinations, northern Michigan is a region with four gloriously distinct seasons. The arrival of winter weather brings a host of invigorating cold-weather recreational activities, including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, snowmobiling and ice fishing.
Golf In season, residents can play at the nearby Cheboygan Golf & Country Club and Mullett Lake Country Club.
Water/ Marina/ Boating Long Lake accommodates small sailboats, canoes and kayaks as well as jet skis and motor boats. Residents have the option of building private boat docks, and the development includes a common area for boat and trailer parking.
Fishing Northern Michigan is a true angler’s paradise, ranging from superb fly fishing on unspoiled rivers and streams to open-water fishing for large game fish on the Great Lakes and ice fishing during the winter months. From their own private lakeside properties, Michakewa Shores residents will have unlimited access to superb fishing for small and largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike, perch, sunfish and bluegill.
Lots Michakawa Shores encompasses a total of 29 one-acre homesites, each with more than 100 feet of private lake frontage. Priced from $169,900 to $249,900.
Nearby Attractions Abundant lakes and parklands, bucolic farmland and the picturesque shorelines of Lake Huron and Lake Michigan combine to make northern Michigan an ideal destination for people who love the great outdoors -- from hiking and biking to fishing, boating or simply lounging on a sandy beach. Cheboygan, Traverse City and other historic Great Lakes ports invite leisurely exploration, or take the ferry to Mackinac Island, a well-preserved colonial settlement where cars are strictly prohibited. Two of the state’s premier winemaking regions -- the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas – are about two hours away.
