Hi,
I need some advice!

I spent 25 summers (all summer) on L. Michigan and am looking to find a place to use for summer vacations and eventually retirement. I prefer L. Superior, but would consider a larger "in-land" lake. (It has to be on the water.)

Having lived in large cities most of my life, I'm really looking for peace and space and privacy. I wouldn't mind being near a town with a university or callege (marquette, houghton or escanaba), but that isn't essential.

Any recommendations or advice?

Thanks!
PS: The UP is about my favorite spot in the US!

Hey, if the great lakes don't have anything you like, try Lake Gogebic, near Ironwood and Wakefield. It's a very large lake with some great fishing.

Default Always loved Marquette

I went to college at Northern Michigan University and will always be partial to Marquette. It's easy to live just outside of town and have lots of space and still be able be within 10 minutes of whatever you need (well except for a large mall ) Plus Escanaba, Houghton and Munising are all within a few hours. I never lived in Houghton but have went up there several times...I thought it was a fun city but I had a heck of a time with getting around on the roads. Like I said I will always be partial to Marquette. It was a really great place to live and I would love to retire up there myself someday. Good luck!

I live in Marquette currently. I would recommend you look at Michigamme! Beautiful area, beautiful lake, only half an hour from Marquette if you want some "culture", dining, shopping, Lake Superior etc.
