The Granot Lomalog is probably the largest log cabin in America. It has a private marina, 5,000 acres (2,000 hectares) of surrounding woodlands. The house that sits on the property is 2,415 square meters (26,000 square feet) and was put on sale for whopping $40 million last year. But since there were no offers, the owner made a huge discount of more than 50%. So today, you can have it for $19.5 million.

 

Called Granot Loma, this gigantic log cabin sits on the shores of Lake Superior, north of Marquette, Michigan.

It was built and named in 1923 by its original owner, financier Louis G. Kaufman.

Kaufman played a pivotal role in the founding of General Motors, where he was on the board for 20 years.

The 26,000-square-foot main home originally cost $5 million to construct.

The mansion was placed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1991.

Inside, the cozy cabin makes full use of its space with wall-to-wall taxidermy. The main attraction is this 60-foot long great room.

There are also totem poles ...

... portraits of Native Americans ...

... teepees ...

... and many statues.

A huge bear rug cushions your walk into the stone-filled bathroom.

The kitchen is up to professional standards.

Check out those chef-grade pizza ovens.

The home is made from Oregon pine, cement, and stone on a steel frame.

But you'd never know that it isn't a "true" log cabin. Both the exterior and interior of the mansion carries the theme heavily.

The bedrooms are especially cozy and woodsy.

There are 23 bedrooms in total.

An excellent man cave, the bar area is festooned with taxidermy.

There's room for a full-size pool table.

The dining room is predictably grand, and overlooks the lake.

The mansion's generous square footage allows for numerous sitting areas.

The views of Lake Superior continue in this dining room.

Among the estate's outbuildings is this guesthouse with four apartments.

A 3,000-gallon hot tub abuts the pool house.

Out back, there's a place for boats to dock inside a private marina.

The estate's best amenity is its 5,000 acres of timbered land and trail system, with 3.7 miles of Lake Superior shoreline.

...its historical building. You can't do damn sh#t with it even if you need simple repair. No one who knows anything about real estate will ever touch that museum for any price. You bough it you married it until death or bankruptcy will do you apart.
