Despite its small-town Michigan charm, East Jordan is large on luxury and a big deal among homeowners eager for swaths of dense forests and expansive water views. The most expensive home for sale in the town, located near the mouth of the Jordan River on the southern extension of Lake Charlevoix, is a log cabin retreat complete with charming rural embellishments like a barn, pastures, boathouse and a covered bridge that spans a winding, woodsy stream. But at just under $12 million, the home looks rustic, but is anything but backwoods. The 4,400 square-foot,  5-bed/3-bath home sits amid 69 acres and has 3,000 feet of unobstructed lakefront access and a 1,400 square-foot guesthouse for your mooching family and friends. [via luxist]
