Quite a deal! Have a feeling this is very secluded. This cabin was built in 1940. It is located on 40 acres in Republic, Michigan. The cabin is being sold with all contents. The interior is nice! Looks cozy. This property has 1,200 feet of frontage along Horseshoe Lake. The property borders Michigan state land, including a long abandoned campground that has plenty of old hiking trails. Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 835 square feet. $129,000

From the Zillow listing:


Cozy original 1930’s log cabin on 40 acres of forest with 1200 feet of frontage on Horseshoe lake in Republic township. A bathroom was added to make this retreat completely comfortable. Includes a furnace, propane auxillary heater and a beautiful field stone fireplace. All contents of the cabin are included in the sale. The mature forest has a mix of towering white pines, maple, fir, spruce, hemlock, oak and birch. Borders Michigan state land, including a long abandoned state campground for privacy and additional hiking/exploring options. The Witbeck Rapids in the nearby Michigamme River is a great kayaking spot, or paddle the more tranquil stretch at the hwy 95 bridge. We will be listing with a realtor this spring if the property does not sell before. Buyers agents welcome.
