Two Superior Dunes Building Sites
Superior Dunes lies 8 miles east of Grand Marais on the windswept southern shore of Lake Superior. Expect to see Lake Superior property at its best. The beach is pure, unbroken white sand or, when the surf washes the sand to offshore underwater bars, sand with goose egg size, colorful when wet, lake-tumbled, polished stones.
The forest is the beautiful open kind typical for old primary dunes, with 100-year old red and white pines, jack pines, oaks, and bracken ferns. A small sand bottom lake lies behind the coastal frontage and each parcel shares an undivided joint ownership of frontage on it at the park and picnic area.
A private paved road winds through pines and wild blueberries on these old, now forested, primary dunes. Power and phone are underground. A caretaker's house has been deeded to and is owned in common by the Landowner's Association. The caretaker plows the roads and daily watches and protects the property. Also Superior Dunes has a 6,000-gallon water supply for fire protection.
The Association fee is $380 per parcel per year. The property is surveyed, and it comes with title insurance and deeded insurable access.
A great arc of sand beach, 95% owned by the State, extends 17 miles to the east towards Whitefish Point. To the west, the Grand Marais area borders the eastern end of Pictured Rocks National Park.
The park has 50 miles of shoreline, great hiking trails, spectacular rock features, lakes, streams, waterfalls and wildlife. Grand Marais has a deepwater harbor and launching ramp, the most spectacular sand harbor you can imagine, several good north woods restaurants, grocery stores, a hardware, and an interesting history from the logging days.
