Opportunity knocks and whispers! Where to begin? How about the land itself; nearly 3 acres situated on Chicago Bay at the mouth of the Flute Reed River. This is the site of the first European settlers in Hovland. The hotel which used to house newly arrived immigrants and visitors still stands. In addition, there is a licensed vacation rental: the Chicago Bay Hideaway. Then, there is the 900 square foot garage with insulated space on the second level. The main home has 3 bedrooms, a full bath on each level, a three season porch overlooking the lake and river. The house needs wall coverings in the hallway and bedrooms. The home is built to high quality standards with in-floor heat, top of the line windows, water from the lake with UV, triple filtration and a circulating heat pump providing hot water on demand. The owner is installing a new septic tank Oct. 15. The parklike yard provides easy access to the shoreline with the possibility of launching a canoe or kayak on calm days.
