About The Owner
I enjoy anything to do with outdoors
The Owner purchased this estate in 1977
Why The Owner chose South Branch
I have spent countless hours over the last 30+ years enjoying outdoor activities around South Branch. Fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, canoeing, Kayaking and skiing are my passion.
What makes this estate unique
This is a one of a kind location. If you enjoy being away from crowds and out in the wilderness this is a perfect spot. But if you prefer both quiet and also some social activities, the house is close to the Timbers Steak House, Long Lake Bar, Wicker Hills Golf Course, Rifle River State Park, and Huron National Forest.
