One of my favorite things to do in Michigan is go camping with friends and family. I love escaping it all and enjoying Mother Nature. No need for phones, laptops, or any of those annoying work emails. There's something so relaxing about sitting around a campfire as it crackles and pops while you roast a hot dog or some marshmallows for s'mores.

$18M Simple Rustic Lodge is Most Expensive Home for Sale in Michigan

It's currently considered the most expensive home for sale in Michigan. With a price tag of $18 million, this simple rustic lodge may not be what you would expect for the money, but there's a really good reason. Yes the lodge itself, which is 3456 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, is very cool, but that isn't the attraction that warrants the hefty price. It's the property, we're talking prime real estate that screams Pure Michigan. The $18 million will secure you 18,480 feet of pristine Lake Huron shoreline along with 710 acres of recreational property. The listing on Zillow states it is believed to be the largest privately-owned Lake Huron shoreline. Think about it...your own 3.5 miles of mostly sandy shoreline with areas of sand dunes to enjoy.
