Nice, but not that nice. Especially for 6 million.

Maybe a million. The upkeep is going to be expensive and spring floods might be problematic. You'll need a generator and a backup one for power, so you'll have to pay a small fortune monthly for fuel to be delivered.

Access only by boat or copter means you're screwed if you get sick during a major storm. Better to build a bridge to the place.

Plus, I'm not real fond of the design of the place and it seems to have been over built for the size of the island.

Even wood supplies for the fire places would have to be boated in and I suspect that place can go through some major wood in the winter time. Plus, wood suppliers tend to gouge such folks over the price of a cord.

Then there's the septic problem. The water level on the island will be high, meaning a septic tank will need a major drain field and will probably back up periodically -- unless you have a lift station to pump it all to a field on the mainland.

Where does the drinking water come from also?

Maybe worth a million.

Infernalist: Benjimin_Dover: What is the lodge selling that it is asking the $6.5 million for?  The island?

The lodge, the island, a caretaker's cabin and 30 acres on the mainland.

So the lodge is selling itself?

Too close to all the rush-hour traffic on 83.

Still, do minerals come with the 30 acres?

Well that was the most depressing story about a cabin I've read today.

Hey as long as there's no blood flowing out of the elevators...
