PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Unique opportunity to buy the Otter Lake Fire Lookout! Likely the highest and best privately owned views in the Keweenaw! Views up to 68 miles away on this 100 foot tower. The tower is insulated and has electric heat. The tower would be great for deer hunting or as a one of kind building to relax at. There are heavy established deer trails on the property and as many as 30-50 deer can be seen on a given day. Turkeys, hawks, eagles, sand hills cranes are also seen from property. In the spring there has been flocks of 50-100 sand hill cranes in the field. Vacation rental potential on the top level or if another level was built on the tower. About 20 feet up the tower a 400 +/- sq ft level that could possibly be built out. Vacation rental towers throughout the U.S. command premium rates. The building on top is 8x8 and the platform could likely hold a larger structure. Great views of Lake Superior (Keweenaw Bay), Torch Lake, and landmarks such as Huron Mountains, Mt Brockway, Quincy Mine Hoist, Cliff Drive, Point Abbey, & Limestone Mountain can be seen from the tower. The pictures don't do justice! The tower was built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corp. The building on top of tower has 110 and 220 power outlets. In the 1980's the tower was reinforced with additional steel. The top of tower can by accessed by a Spider ST-180 construction elevator in an enclosed shaft (with a 990 +/- pound net lifting capacity) or by the ladder. Additional income potential with cell phone companies and the local power company (smart meters). A windmill could possibly also be attached to the tower. A boat launch to Otter Lake is only a few miles away. About a mile away is public access to thousands of acres of State of Michigan land. The property has an RV power hook up and a gravel parking pad.This property sits on a quiet year round dead end road with only 3 year round residences. The tower has a roll down door on the East side of the structure. The soil of the property is sandy and includes a small portion of woods. A survey of property is on file.
