Looking for a vacant lot on lake. It can be small inland lake as I don't have the $ for land on the great lakes.
Would prefer a lake in Southern Lower Penn within an hour or two of the Detroit metro area and also prob best if West or North/West. I'd orefer to avoid the I-75 traffic every weekend if we're headed to our land/cottage.
Any suggestions which lakes to look around? Was looking around the Jackson area, but don't know enough about other near-by lakes to know where to look.
You may be fighting a loosing battle: In the lower part of the lower Michigan lake property is big bucks!!.
I had the same Idea a few years ago. I ended up in Alpena nice area It has not gotten in to quite the Big bucks that the lower and western lower has so far and there are a few nice lakes up there that still has some property on then. The price has tripled in the last 10 years even up there. If you go east of Gaylord North of Gladwin and in the NE quadrant of Lower Michigan would be my only suggestion. It’s a little over your 2 hours. It takes about 4 hrs but it is worth it. Good Luck SM
PS if you try the Gladwin area that might keep you in the 2 hr. range
