Welcome to Little Birch Lake! One look at the aerials and see that this is a rare and unique opportunity. If you're unfamiliar with the lake, it is located 30 miles from either St. Cloud or Alexandria on the Stearns / Todd Coutny line, approximately six miles north of Melrose / I-94. The entire property, in general, is a mix of woods, wetlands, and streams with one elevated "knob" by the lake that makes for a great building site with more gradual access down to the lakeshore. Little Birch Lake itself is approximately 840 acres in size with a max. depth of around 90 feet and average water clarity of just over 9 feet (and increasing), according to the DNR Lakefinder website. It holds a variety of fish species, including but not limited to Walleye, Crappie, Sunfish, Large and Smallmouth Bass, and Northerns. Primarily managed for the walleyes, Little Birch has been stocked with fry every year and noted as far back as the report to 2013 and fingerlings in 2019 and 2022.
Access to the property is off Birch Crest Road and will be done with an ingress/egress/utility easement through the property the seller has retained. County zoning officials have been out on site to determine the best access route (which goes behind the old family cabin retained by the seller), building site, etc. Contact information for those individuals is available. The seller is willing to work with any buyer to get them whatever zoning approvals/confirmations they need.
I need to make sure and mention that the focus of this write-up has been on the lake, but let's not overshadow the lake and the land. This is located in the wooded rolling hills area again north of Melrose, with all the timber and mixed ag. Around the site, the wildlife is abundant, and you have a genuine opportunity to have your dream lake home or cabin and be able to hunt out your back door.
So much more to say about this great Little Birch Lake property, so call me, and we can discuss it!
