Michigan rivers, & streams. Pure rivers gin clear and teeming with trout & salmon. Endless miles of shoreline, lush meadows & river valleys… This is my Northern Michigan home. Now, more than ever…make it yours.

Welcome to Trout Country properties of Northwest Michigan. More than a real estate website, Trout Country pays tribute to the northern Michigan riverfront property that includes rivers, streams, & small brooks that give life to this special region. This is Hemingway country. He often fished these waters in his youth and later wrote about this magical place that he labeled “the last good country”.


The Manistee and Ausable, Betsie & Platte, the Boardman, Rapid & Cedar, the very special Jordan river, and all other flowing waters of this region are the focus of this site.
