The fabulous Fire Lanes once part of the State of Michigan held forested dunes along Lake Michigan. Since the 1920s 18 Lanes have become the destination for generations of Chicago’s most elite families, seeking very private and heavily wooded Lake Michigan home sites for family beach houses. The dunes along Lake Michigan with primeval forests untouched for centuries, now so rare that the State of Michigan created the Critical Dune Act in the 1980’s to save and protect their beauty and rare virgin forests. The Fire Lanes are typically 2500 feet or more deep from Blue Star Memorial Highway and contain only lakefront homes so far back in the woods, one would not even know they are there, in the exception of Fire Lane #9 the Wilderness Dunes Development the remaining lanes are not developed and are not all accessible in heavy winter snowfall. By popular belief and pure love of this most unusual setting, any Fire Lane resident will tell you it is all worth it, the unbelievable beauty and privacy is a rarity second to none. This area is unique in its own and you will not find even a close comparison elsewhere.
