Location: Goeztville, Michigan
Price: $1,995,000
The Skinny: Just a stone's throw from the Canadian border in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula is a lighthouse that has guided ships plying the busy waters of St. Mary's River since 1892. Located on a private island near the infamous graveyard of ships in the busy DeTour Passage, the completely restored residence is steeped in the colorful and kinda tragic story of Great Lakes shipping. Connected to the rest of the world only through a private harbor on the island and marine facilities on the mainland (which includes a dock and boat), the property is perhaps considered "away from it all," a.k.a. a good place for sipping an icy Blackrocks and humming along with The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home spans 2,000 square feet, and comes with the aforementioned private isle, which encompasses 7 acres of prime, woodsy, Yooper real estate. The lighthouse, which has received a tasteful and light-filled renovation, is asking $1.995M.
