8 Historic Properties Near Lake Superior Can Be Yours for $3.5M

Nestled into Michigan’s Upper Peninsula right near Lake Superior sits eight historic properties, making up its own village of sorts. Packaged together and offering 7 fully-furnished homes plus an extra property that needs a renovation, someone can now scoop them all for $3.499 million. The homes were built in the early 1900s when copper mining was at its peak here and each has its own charm. Ending up at roughly $437,000 per property, this listing is quite a rare opportunity.

Across the eight properties, there is over 35,000 square feet of living space, 40 bedrooms, and 33 bathrooms. Each home has its own personality and antique touches. For example, you’ll find beautiful wood moldings, original light fixtures, custom stained glass, and a myriad of paintings.

While currently operating as turn-key bed and breakfasts or vacation rentals, the opportunities are truly endless with these homes. Imagine living in one, giving another to a friend or family member, and still having room for a guest house and a bed and breakfast business. You can also always just rent the homes out to eager students or teaches as Michigan Tech University is just 12 miles away.

Perhaps the most exquisite of the bunch is the Laurium Manor Inn, a 13,000-square-foot mansion. Theodore Roosevelt stayed there once while touring the country. It also holds a fireplace made of Tiffany Glass Tile.
