Michiganders ... buy a second home on a lake in Michigan?

Thinking about buying a property on/by a lake in Michigan within a few hours of Shelby/MaComb townships. Perhaps $120,000 or so. Would be doable and still keep Bug Tussell farm in New Mexico.

Within a few hours drive of Shelby because kids/grandkids are there. A few acres cuz I like to pee off the porch and not get arrested. Close to a lake for summer recreation opportunities. A quick perusal of a Northern Michigan booklet I picked up at Kroger's shows some possibilities.

We want to keep it south of Mackinac bridge and as close to Shelby/Macomb as possible but hit the price point. Whatcha think?
Make your time

I would think for the reasons listed, it wouldn't be a bad idea. Lots of outdoor activities in MI especially if you like fishing and hunting. Yeah, I would get away from the Detroit metro area. I like the wide-open spaces once you get north of the Grand Rapids - Flint line. The thumbish area is pretty agricultural - lots of sugar beet farms. I'm in the SW corner which still has some open spaces but it is fairly well built up. I would love to get some property further north when I retire and have time to enjoy the outdoors more.

Yeah, there's about two weeks in August when its warm enough to spend time outside.

The skeeters figured that out too.

Ask me about the Mason-Dixon FAL Collectors Association.
