It's considered currently the most expensive home for sale in Michigan. With a price tag of $18 million, this simple rustic lodge may not be what you would expect for the money, but there's a really good reason.
Known as the SunUP Lake Lodge, the listing sits on 9842 Misery Bay Road in Alpena, Michigan. The home, which is really very cool, is simple and very true to an Up North Michigan vibe.
Throughout the 3456 square feet of space, you'll find knotty pine and wood practically everywhere. It is a lodge after all. The home contains 5 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, of which none are really anything to warrant such a hefty asking price.

We're not talking just any property, we're talking prime real estate that screams Pure Michigan. The $18 million will secure you 18,480 feet of pristine Lake Huron shoreline along with 710 acres of recreational property. The listing on Zillow states it is believed to be the largest privately-owned Lake Huron shoreline. Think about it...your own 3.5 miles of mostly sandy shoreline with areas of sand dunes to enjoy.
Included in the sale is also everything you need to enjoy and maintain your own "world". There is a 40x40 pole building full of recent and professionally maintained Kubota tractor, excavator, a 4x4, and the tow behind implements. There is a 30x12 stamped and stained concrete deck facing Lake Huron and Thunder Bay Island for those perfect summer nights along with a large bonfire pit.
For those hunters, there are several raised blinds on the property and even a 100-yard target range. The entire compound is powered by solar with 24-volt backup battery storage enclosed in the outbuilding, and don't worry, there is also a Generac 17 kW generator for battery charging and propane supplies for the fireplace and boiler.
Here's the very best part of the whole package...it is the whole package. The entire place is being offered completely furnished and turnkey. Just buy it and move right in!
