Just a few miles to the North West of Clare, MI, sits a woodland retreat that many have not heard of. Its a place where nature is at its best, the wildlife roam free and are protected and the lakes are stocked with bluegills, perch, and trophy bass. When the wind blows, all you can hear is the rustle of the leaves. It sits just a few miles off of the US10 Expressway exit and about 2.5 hours from Metro Detroit, 2 hours from Grand Rapids and is located in the heart of Central Michigan.
You can purchase wooded lots that range between 3/4 of an acre to some larger acreage parcels starting at $5,500! The dues are $375 a year per lot and you may camp on your lots. They do have a discounted rate for dues if you have multiple lots and you build on one of them. Go to www.whitebirch.org for more details on the association dues.
