297 County Road KB, Marquette, MI 49855
Just 12 miles outside of Marquette sits Saux Head Point that includes Saux Head Lodge, a restored historic hunting and fishing lodge and "Overlook House", a cedar guest house on the majestic waters of Lake Superior, Saux Head Lake and the Big Garlic River. The property has 163 acres including roughly a mile of Lake Superior coastline, half of Saux Head Lake and the entire section of Big Garlic River. The Superior frontage is both sugar sand beach and granite outcroppings with dramatic stone faces that on windy days throw 30’ water spray into the air. This rugged shoreline includes the Pine tree covered Saux Head point that juts out into the Great Lake. Leaving Superior you go inland down the Big Garlic River to about another mile of shoreline on Saux Head Lake, a large scenic Huron Mountain lake offering warmer calm waters. Saux Head Lake is a family recreation lake and like Superior is ideal for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and waterskiing. The Big Garlic River connects the two lakes and cuts through the property separating the two homes. The Overlook House is accessed by both a footbridge and car bridge. These diverse lands offer mountainous terrain and mountain bike trails, garden plots, large orchard, mixed hardwoods and pine forests along with Pop’s Mountain, the highest point on the property with 360~degree views. The main lodge was renovated by the family in 1959 from its original 1917 state, and in 2009 it was completely renovated and updated again. This main lodge has about 5000 square feet and a full basement. Other notable features include Birdseye maple floors, updated kitchen with top the line appliances, a copper dome fireplace, four spacious bedrooms, and 3 ½ updated bathrooms. The ground floor is built entirely of pine logs with a fabulous great room that has high ceilings lined with large pine beams spanning the room with the original 1917 stone fireplace..
