Learn About Lake Michigan Real Estate

Pure Michigan lakes attract tourists from all over the US and beyond. ABC's Good Morning America named the shores of Lake Michigan (Sleeping Bear National) as "The Most Beautiful Place in America."

Lake Michigan is the fifth-largest lake in the world by surface area. Its surface covers a whopping 22,000 square miles. It is also the world's third-largest lake by volume - it reaches a maximum depth of 923 feet and a total width of 118 miles.

Fun Fact: Lake Michigan is the only one of 5 Great Lakes located entirely in the United States!

The Manitou Passage is the channel that separates the Michigan Peninsula from the North and South Manitou Islands. Here you will find Sleeping Bear and Good Harbor Bays, as well as Cathead Bay fronted on this beautiful part of Lake Michigan. Lake freighters, fishing boats, and sailing yachts compete in the annual Chicago to Mackinac Yacht Race and homes along these bays get front row seats.

The Legends of Lake Michigan

Imposing points and bluffs lining the passage resemble giant beasts, courtesy of the glaciers that shaped this area eons ago. Native Americans saw the shapes of bears in these landforms: a dune perched atop Sleeping Bear Point was a mama bear; her cubs the Manitou islands.

As the legend goes, the cubs drowned as they were fleeing a forest fire in Wisconsin. Their mama—the Sleeping Bear for which the surrounding dunes are named—sleeps atop the dune as she awaits the time when the Great Manitou will bring them back to life.
