This insane $649k log cabin in Michigan’s U.P. is a wood-lover’s dream — let’s take a tour


How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Well, we're not sure, but we think it would take a whole mess of woodchucks to chuck this unique Ironwood property off of US-2 in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Built in 1979, this log masterpiece features three bedrooms, four baths, and perhaps the most amount of wood we have ever seen used in a single property and, to be honest, we sort of love it. Whimsy? Check. Eleven acres with a pond? Double-check. How about wood carvings, big wooden bears, a loft space, massive stone fireplaces, and a massive — and very wooden — wet bar? Yes, folks, this multi-use property has it all. Per the listing, potential buyers might want to think beyond the traditional confines of an octagonal log cabin home that has, in recent years, undergone $700,000 in renovations because it is also suited for a restaurant, retail business, a bed and breakfast, or, like, a wood museum. (A quick Google search found that there is no such thing in the U.S. as a wood museum, so we might be onto something.)

Anyway, the property is a few miles from skiing and is across the road from a snowmobile/ATV trail and, appropriately, there's a medical center next door-ish. We'll stop yammering on because this is one of those homes that needs to be seen to be believed and is just begging to be a wood museum. (Sorry, we'll stop. But seriously, think about it.)
