    I have to agree with this. I have a couple relatives in this "boundary" and it is awesome territory.

    It all depends on budget, Kalkaska county much cheaper than Benzie or Manistee, the closer you get to TC, Manistee, Ludington, Petoskey the pricier the land
     
  5. Whit is right...and pretty specific!

    Thanks again for all of the replies. I've narrowed my search down to to specific areas one being the area suggested by Whit.

    The farthest I have to drive to fish for anything is 40 miles. I do most of my steelhead and salmon fishing within a few miles of St Ignace. The deer hunting is not what it used to be but there is thousands of acres of federal land to hunt on. Why buy a big parcel of your own land when the federal land is abundant. There is lots of great fishing in the Northern Lower if you want to hit the lakes there.

    I agree with Plugger. It's a great area for fishing and other outdoors activities.

    We had our camper in a seasonal campground in Manistee for a few years and this past spring we bought a cabin on 20 acres in Wellston. We hadn't spent much time in Wellston before buying the place. My wife and kids spent the entire summer up there exploring the area and fell in love. 20 minutes to Cadillac, 15 minutes to the beautiful beaches in Manistee, numerous Big Manistee boat launches within a few miles of the cabin, Tippy Dam just down the road, The Little Manistee just a couple of miles away and Pine Creek runs through the US land just across the road off the back of the property. Plus there are a couple of smaller lakes in the area. There are tons of other things to do in the area with all of the hiking, skiing and snowmobile trails. Once we discovered the Dublin Store, we never went into "the big town" unless it was to go to the beach. If they don't have it, you don't need it.
    We've been very happy with our location so far.

    Only thing I would do before I purchase property is check the local zoning laws. We looked at some property last year near manistee and were ready to make an offer but decided to call and talk to the zoning guy for the area first. Come to find out the property was listed as building site. But after some checking there is no way to build on it. So we almost made a costly mistake. After learning all this we decided to keep looking. The realitor didn't even know it wasnt build able
