About 5500 E 68th Street

Imagine owning one of the best recreational properties in Michigan. That dream can now become a reality. The owner of this property has spent the last 34 years acquiring additional parcels to accumulate over 1.3 miles of riverfront and over 422 acres of land, on arguably the best fishing river in West Michigan. This custom-built, log home sits on the bank of the Muskegon River and has 3 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, a two-story flagstone fireplace, hardwood floors, custom kitchen, main floor laundry, and custom ''owner built'' cabinets from wood that was harvested from the property. It is heated and cooled with a Geothermal HVAC system that has LP gas back up. Electricity bills are also very low due to the solar panels. A large deck overlooks the water and there is a 40' x 40' garage to house all of your vehicles. This property is very Green with almost a zero-carbon footprint. This is a low bank property but not in the flood zone. No huge staircases to get down to the water's edge. In addition to the home, you will find two additional pole buildings. The first is a 40' x 120' storage building to house all your toys and equipment. There is an additional 10' x 120' covered awning for additional covered, outdoor storage. This building has lights and power. The second building is a hobbyist's dream come true. It is 66' x 100', is heated (wood or LP), and has water and electric. There is a large area for additional vehicle/equipment storage, a large wash/repair bay, a second large area that is currently set up as a woodworking shop but could easily be a machine shop or area to work on/store vehicles. Also located in this building is a ½ bath and a large wood paneled office. The property is completely fenced with a gate at the entrance to ensure privacy and protection. There are miles of groomed trails that traverse the property. Numerous hunting blinds and food plots for deer and wildlife. There is a dock at the water's edge in front of the house to enjoy the river and keep your boat docked for easy quick access. Watch the Bald Eagles, duck, geese, and herons fly up and down the river. The main attraction is the Muskegon River. The 1.3 miles (+/-) of shoreline entails the entire south side of the river starting just below the Croton Dam and ending below the Pine Street boat launch. The land directly across from the house is state owned, so there will never be any houses directly across the river, it will always remain very private. This section of river is some of the best water for fishing for trout in the entire state. In addition to trout, you will find salmon, steelhead, small mouth bass and walleye in this section of the river, depending on the time of year and when the fish come into the river to spawn. The trout and small mouth bass are there year-round. Descriptions and pictures never do a property the true justice it deserves. The best thing to do would be to schedule a tour and discover for yourself how amazing this property truly is.
