Opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind game ranch in Michigan
This 1465 acre ranch is located in Kalkaska County in Michigan’s Northern lower peninsula, and has previously operated as a high-fence game ranch. This is a rare opportunity to own a huge track of pristine land just a short 30 minute commute to Traverse City where a full list of amenities are available as well as private and commercial air services. This tract has roughly ½ mile of Manistee River frontage a Michigan Blue Ribbon trout stream. Cost and creativity was no option in this truly one of a kind world-class ranch estate. The craftsmanship and detail of every aspect is unmatched from the hunting blinds, tree house, cabins, support buildings, golf cart barn to the main lodge.
There are several natural and man-made ponds and over 3 miles of meandering trout stream. The tract has diverse vegetation with a good mix of cedar and tag elder swamps, hardwoods, ridges, large lush green pastures and scattered Aspen Groves which together provides exceptional year around wildlife habitat. The thick natural habitat provides the animals with the most fair chase opportunity of any high fence ranch.
Topography varies from level to rolling. An integrated road system is in place with bridges and catwalks providing excellent access throughout the property. The ranch has several custom log style improvements including a dining hall, maintenance building, equipment storage building, animal processing building, ATV building, care takers home, additional staff living quarters and two lodges perched along the banks of the Manistee River. The property has its very own 110-foot restored viewing tower offering miles of scenic Michigan countryside. There is nearly 3 square miles of high fenced northern Michigan wilderness making this your very own private sportsman’s paradise.
