More about Braeloch
Loch-a lake or a sea inlet
It is called Braeloch, borrowed from the grandfather’s tongue and love of beautiful places. It does possess a ‘ridge, slope or hillside,’ and the view from that ridge is thrilling, limitless, blue, Lake Superior, forest and sky. And nothing else, which is as much the beauty of it all.
And the ‘loch’ is, of course, ‘Loch’ Superior. At Braeloch, it is a stunning, boundless view from above, or a stunning dip, or a stunning walk along its shore and forested paths. You can be awed, tingled, calmed, or brought to a new understanding of the biggest question in your life by it; take your pick, and pick your perspective.
You will never, ever want for a way to appreciate the Lake or forest here. Be it from the ridge, the beach, the screened porch, the back garden. They will accompany you throughout your days – beautiful, peaceful, days scattered with the sound of the wind in the trees, waves, rocks meeting, bird calls.
You might love the concentric circles in the rocks, the glance of an oriole, the yellow-green of a cedar compared to the blue-green of a spruce, the trickle of ground water down the sandstone, the rivulets it makes to the Lake, the calls of merlins on a calm day, the apples and cherries, the Jacks in the pulpit, the Lady’s slippers, the bears and badgers, the stone chimney made from Lake Superior’s offerings right on site.
The house is spacious, welcoming, clean-lined and thoughtful. You will feel at home. It’s only a 15-minute drive from Houghton on paved roads. People will visit since there’s a regional airport about a 30-minute drive away, but you’ll want it to yourself, too.
And you have your own shipwreck, believed to be the Bon Voyage. The Bon Voyage sank in 1901, but today, its skeleton is sculpture for the Lake. It is often accented by deer prints in the sand. Life is a full circle. Here, the circle will be felt, tasted, seen, heard. The ridge, forest and the Lake will lovingly see to it.
