On the pristine shores of Lake Superior, Michigan you'll find a piece of real estate that's uniquely Pure Michigan. Not only is it everything that "up north" Michigan is about, but this National Historic site is also the largest log cabin in the world with an estimated worth of $40,000,000.

Built in the early 20th-century financier Louis G. Kaufmanry, Granot Loma is more than just a cabin, it's a sprawling estate that includes 50 rooms, 23 bedrooms, a private marina, and over 5,000 acres of awe-inspiring wilderness. Every corner of this magnificent 20,000-square-foot home tells a story of grandeur and elegance, from its handcrafted log beams to its breathtaking Great Room with a stone fireplace that stands as the heart of the home.

The lodge has a bit of history throughout with a gourmet kitchen modeled after the one in the White House, and a piano in the great room once played by George Gershwin himself. The mantel in the 30ft fireplace was the beam in a sunken ship retrieved from Lake Superior.

The estate was built by over 400 Scandinavian craftsmen at a cost of over $5 million by Louis Graveraet Kaufman. The name Granot Loma was derived by Kaufman from the letters of his first three children, Louis, Graveraet, and Otto combined with Mr. Kaufman’s first name Louis, and his wife Marie.

The spectacular property has an indoor boathouse, a private harbor, a private island, and over 1 mile of private Lake Superior beachfront. The compound also has a farm complete with an apple orchard and 13 separate buildings just in case the lodge gets crowded. There is even a 3,000-gallon hot tub.
