When you get settled in, or for that matter if you need a hand with anything, give me a bump...I'm only about 30 miles north of you. Congrats and good luck with your move!

I found that much of what I looked at that met my criteria, had some real deal killers as well.
I got five acres. I found out yesterday a guy on the next block owns 80 some odd acres that runs along my lot. He bought it so nobody can build behind him. My “Sugar Shack” walk out basement faces that.
I’m looking for a reason to back out of the deal, I cannot find one.

On edit: The neighbors acres, my view.

So far the worst part are the huge golden brownish wasps. Seen one carrying away a raccoon.
Rain gutters need cleaned. Deck needs stain. Shop will get insulated, drywall and a boolerjan. Iím going to need to buy cord wood.

Today a RE attorney looks over the title and contracts looking for any land mines.

Somebody tell me about these free standing gas stoves that look like wood burners but are not. Are those worth it? Looks like it just burns money.

I love the area around Beulah myself. I like the fact that it is Small town life but you not too far from a Big city if need be. Plus you have Crystal Lake right there witch is one of the best lakes in the state as well. But I have been going up that way my whole life so it has become my up north home.

Bear Lake to Beulah was my first choice. It just wasnt happening.
Itís a tough real estate market.

I donít want a project. I donít want a maintenance hog.

I love going down the Betsie River or just out in the bay and then go out to the break water in a Kayak.

Sadly that is so true about the area. You are going to either Pay Top dollar OR You get a hell of a deal but have to drop a Crap ton money to fix it up.

But if you wanted to Own a Building and/or Run/Own a Business in that area. I know of one in Elberta for sale. Got love Coffee and Sandwiches as well as renting out bikes.

MY Folks own a shop right in Elberta at the corner or M-22 and Formally M-168

Love to paddle the Betsie That and the Upper Platte are my go to rivers. Never thought about paddling Betsie Lake, that might be fun. Paddled the Betsie two years ago during the Salmon run...that was awesome

Conundrum Cafe??

I love that whole part of the state. Beulah itself doesn't do much for me, I think it mostly got ruined for me like 20 years ago when we went to that creepy ass children of the corn Cherry Hut restaurant. The town is nice for sure and being right on Crystal Lake is great, I just get a weird vibe there now. But Frankfort, Glen Arbor, Empire, Leland, Suttons Bay, etc are all some of my favorite places to be. Beautiful country and gotta love the relaxed up north lake vibe.

Hmmm I think my mom is friends with your mom, I seem to remember her mentioning that place. Did/does your mom by chance work at Cromaine Library? Mine used to, can't remember if that's where she met said friend or not.
