Looking for that perfect, secluded, lakefront, seasonal summer retreat in the Northwoods? Opportunity knocks. It has only happened one other time in the last century- sale of Windswept, one of the most iconic, scenic, historic properties on the south shore of Lake Superior located on the northern tip of Middle Island point in Marquette. Part of a private lakefront community, Windswept has access to 600 acres of private forested land, 2 miles of beach plus Partridge Island, a short paddle away. Yet Windswept is only a 15 minute drive to downtown Marquette and easy access to the international airport. Dr. John Lowe, head of the biology department at Northern Michigan University, constructed the two bedroom craftsman-built log cottage in the 1920's using spruce and cedar logs, oak flooring, knotty pine interior walls and hand hewn ceiling beams. Wanting solitude, he chose a site requiring a 10 minute walk from the parking space, on a narrow, up and down, challenging rocky path. Upon arrival on the granite cliff overlooking Lake superior, visitors are treated to magnificent lake views, sunsets, star shows, northern lights plus a natural world of cormorants, seagulls, pileated woodpecker‘s, gray fox, white tail deer, pine martens and more. Recent improvements include a new roof, new windows, bathroom with shower and incinerating toilet, 200 amp electrical, plumbing, baseboard heating upgrade and Wi-Fi. This is your opportunity to own a truly unique property.
