This creepy $2.65 million hunting lodge filled with taxidermy in western Michigan could be new MAGA HQ
Nothing says serenity quite like gunshots and the sounds of animals whimpering in their final moments. If you worship at the altar of former Motor City Madman Ted Nugent and consider the processing of deer meat to be your preferred moment of zen, look no further than the 44-year-old Willow Lake Sportsman's Club in Three Lakes, which is on sale for $2,650,000. And, yes, it's creepy as fuck.
The massive 8,567-square-foot compound sits on 218 ecologically diverse acres, spanning woodlands, grasslands, marshland, as well as 600 feet along Spring Creek and a 12-acre private lake. OK, so the listing definitely enjoys using the word private, going as far as to say the property offers the privacy of that of a deserted island, which paints some Michael “I got cancer from cunnilingus” Douglas vibes circa 1997's The Game.
Anyway, the hunting lodge can sleep 31 throughout 7 private suites, including a 15-bed bunkhouse, suitable for family gatherings, large groups, or inconvenient orgys. As the listing suggests, the bunk room could also be renovated to become a master bedroom or fitness or movie room, you know, to watch The Game.
There’s a lounge, bar, billiards room, mess hall, and a commercial-grade kitchen with a food-prep area and walk-in pantry, because you're going to need a lot of elbow room to dish out large game carcass. Outside, there's a fire pit, grill station, and ample bench seating. Oh, there's a pole barn, too, which by the looks of the photos is not equipped for Babe the pig or, say, any living creature.
Now, as the listing suggests, Willow Lake Sportsman's Club is prime for renovations to accommodate any number of uses. We think it would make a great animal sanctuary just as soon as you clear out all of the taxidermy, including the boars, bears, rams, and one very unfortunate elephant.
