    Description

    This is a rare Manistee River parcel previously owned by the Founder of the legendary Shakespeare Fishing Tackle Company, Wm Shakespeare Jr. and Dr. Augustus W. Crane (X-Ray pioneer). They purchased this property in or around 1924. It goes without saying that they, and the later owners, made many memories here and so will you. Legendary fishermen have frequented this very place. Upjohn Company used this as an executive retreat from 1940 into the 1990's. Numerous signatures of distinguished gentleman are recorded on the signature wall inside the lodge, boasting of good trout fishing and grouse hunting. This unique Manistee River parcel is distinctive for various reasons. This part of the Manistee River is the historic location of Jam One, known to be the largest log jam on the river during the logging boom at the turn of the Century. As a result of this tremendous log jam, loggers worked for months and months digging and trenching an alternate river bed to relieve the mighty Manistee's pressure on the tens of thousands of logs bound up in this location resulting in the island today. Jam one is also the confluence of the North Branch of the Manistee River, being the Northern boundary with 105' of Frontage, and the Manistee River, being the western boundary of the property, enjoying approx. 400 of Frontage. The view is stunning, the lodge is nestled on a point that some refer to as the Ansel Adams view of Northern Michigan. There is also a spectacular island view, seen over the confluence, inside this historic lodge of a 5 acre man-made island. It cannot be disputed; this is the best Manistee River property. 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, natural pebble floors throughout, natural fireplace, the redwood deck just a couple of feet from the river, everything in excellent condition. The lodge sits majestically on the bank only a couple dozen feet from the waters edge. It sleeps 12, This is a must see.
