Osceola County, Michigan
Leroy area, Between Cadillac, and Reed City
Do you like to camp? Somewhere you can also build a nice cottage someday?
Are you looking for a great vacation spot where you can get out on the lake - swim, fish, boat, water-ski??
Do you know that most nice places won't LET you pitch a tent or stay in a camper or motorhome? Most of them won't even let you PARK your camper there for more than a few days before someone raises a fuss! The sites in most campgrounds are quite small-- 1,200 to 2,000 square feet.
This site is more than 20,000 square feet-- over TEN TIMES the size of a large campsite. It measures 103 feet at the front, and an average of 208 feet deep. It's got a large park/greenbelt at the back, so nobody can ever build or camp at your back property line. You can own this site forever, and not have to pay any campsite rental. If you want, someday you can build on it.
This is a wooded, buildable lot in Rose Lake Forest sub. you can own and use while you buy on land contract. Rose Lake Forest (we simply call it the Forest) is different from any other place I've ever seen.
The lots are large, and they all back up against common-area/park, which is really just a wooded buffer so you've got more space between you and your neighbor. The land is pleasantly hilly, and the roads curve around the lay of the land. All the electric and telephone lines are run underground to every parcel. All this combines to give the Forest a remote, back-to-nature feel.
Unlike most developments, camping is not only allowed, it's actually encouraged. My dad built the Forest when I was a kid. He made a few simple rules that insured people could always camp, and he set up an Association to maintain some bathrooms, shower, and facilities where you can take your trash, dump the waste tanks in an RV camper, and get fresh water. Everyone who owns land in the Forest is a member, and it only costs $85 a year.
That means you can enjoy camping on your lot without having the up-front expense of putting in a well and septic. Later, if and when you're ready, you can have your own well and septic, build a house or cabin-- whatever you want. Get your own shed or garage, and you can have a place to leave all that stuff you usually lug around with you when you go camping. You own the land, so every dollar you put into improvements just makes your property worth more.
Here's one of the best parts-- Rose Lake!
Rose Lake is a 373 acre all-sports lake. The fishing is great; you can swim, canoe, boat, water-ski or, as I like to do, float around on a pontoon and eat steak and wash it down with a beer.
The Association maintains a 200 foot private beach on Rose Lake. The beach is attached to the Forest, and is only a few minutes from any lot in the Forest. There's a swimming area, and a place to beach your boat while you're there for a weekend.
This is a beautiful wooded piece of land, high and dry, and perfect for your tent, camper, or motorhome. Here's what's special about this parcel:
* Existing driveway with cleared cement pad for a camper
* Existing electric service with meter-- can be turned on easily
* Screen of woods in front gives privacy from the road
* Walk off the back of the property, less than 150 feet to the bathrooms and showers.
* This site is ready to use immediately. Pull in and start camping.
* Bonus -- wild blackberries at the back of the lot! Yum!!!
There's an association that costs $85 a year. As a member of the Association, you get a set of keys and a sticker for your windshield, for all this:
* Access to 200 foot private member's-only beach on Rose Lake.
* A bath house with toilet and shower
* Bathrooms at the beach.
* Sanitary station to dump the black and gray-water tanks in your camper
* Clean and pure water well to fill your camper's tank with fresh water

Use your keys to let yourself in any time, WITHOUT having to find someone "on duty", or ask permission, and all at No Extra Cost.

* 25 minutes from Cadillac
* 1 hr and 10 mins from Grand Rapids
* 3 hrs and 15 mins from Detroit area
County road is plowed and maintained all year around. Electric and telephone at the road, all underground, so the natural beauty is unspoiled by overhead wires.
This site is only a twenty minute walk to the members-only private beach on Rose Lake. Rose Lake is a jewel of the North; the water is clear and the fishing is great. A 373 acre all-sports lake, so you can fish, swim, water-ski, or just lay out on the beach. It's a place you'll feel safe letting your teens walk to. You don't have to walk though, it's all county road, and there's parking just above the beach area. You're two minutes away from the lake. You don't even have to make reservations!
Camp for as long as you want. Leave your camper here, as long as you want, even year 'round. Most people eventually put in their own well and septic, but you don't have to right away, or ever, until and unless you want to. Put up your own shed or garage if you want to store your boat, snowmobile, or trail bike. Later, when you're ready, you can build a cottage, or put in a mobile home. This land is a prime building site. There's plenty of room to do as you please.
I'm offering a couple different options on the land contract, depending on how much you can put down. The standard down-payment is 10% which, for this Parcel is $1,790. Your monthly payment will be $189.89, which includes property taxes, and pays off the full balance, with no balloon, in fifteen years.
Or make a down payment of just $895. Payments for the first year are $268.99, and drop to $189.89 for the remainder of the term. I look at it as a way to help people get started.
Pay $500 now; balance of down-payment due within 30 days; your first monthly payment isn't due for 60 days. I never charge any closing costs. All the details are on my website.
