11 Hunting Hideaways
Living off the land -- to the extreme or while relaxing in the lap of luxury -- is possible if you own a hunting lodge. Just in time for holiday feasting comes our look at some of the best hunting lodges on the market where you might bag your very own wild turkey to eat on the big day.
For a mere $16 million, 7,800 contiguous acres of ranch in South Texas can be yours. Right in the heart of trophy-class Whitetail Deer territory, the area is also rich with wild turkey, quail, dove, wild hogs, ducks and other game species year-round.
|Potential buyers of pricey hunting lodges have two prime considerations: the quality of the environment outside and luxuries inside.|
The property includes a roomy 6,500-square-foot five-bedroom main lodge and ample 3,200-square-foot guesthouse. The lodge is also fully equipped with a hunter's house, storage and equipment barns, an office, custom dog kennels, game processing facilities and cattle-working pens.For information contact Jon Paul Martin (210-822-8602) or visit the online listing. Manchester, Mich.
Michigan leads the nation in hunting Whitetail Deer and is popular for hunting small-game species as well, including the cottontail rabbit, fox, squirrel, ruffed grouse and ring-necked pheasant. You'll be right in the thick of it all at this lodge in Southern Michigan, with more than 2,000 contiguous acres including the 100-acre Watkins Lake. It is listed for $14 million. Included on the property is a historic Civil War-era home that needs some restoration, but evokes the style of when people really did depend on the land for their survival. The property is a working farm with multiple barns and farm buildings as well as beautiful green vistas and water to sustain the wild game and human populations. For information contact Beverly McCotter (248-644-7000) or Bill Vandercook (810-614-0899) or visit the online listing. Morganton, N.C.
Sweetbriar Farm is for sale for just over $2 million. For that you get 230 acres in the picturesque foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains -- about 45 minutes from Ashville and an hour from Charlotte. Hunters in Western North Carolina can track the abundant populations of wild turkey, deer, bear, boar and small game. The main house is a timber-framed construction with all the rustic charm of a classic hunting lodge. There are multiple barns on the property, as well as trap-shooting stations and 12 deer stands. Artifacts of the original homestead likely dating back to the Civil War era remain on the property, embellishing it with historical cachet.
