CLARE, Mich., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A Clare County hunting retreat with a history of producing deer, turkey and other game is being sold in an online auction, with Sheridan Realty and Auction Company marketing the property and conducting the sale.

"Doc & Tom Creek, which runs through this 616-acre central Michigan recreational property, has helped attract deer, turkey and other game for productive hunting. The land has produced quality deer every year, even though the owner limits his hunting to the very short rifle season," said Doug Sheridan, of the auction company.

"It's not every day you see this much unspoiled land right in the center of the state, about a half hour from Cadillac, less than 80 miles from Traverse City and a 90-minute drive from Lansing. The 3,442-square-foot home is full of interesting details, including rustic siding and an ornate bar and massive stone fireplace," said Sheridan. The home, originally built in 1908, will include the bar, a pool table and other furnishings.

Owner Howard Doss said the land "has always been part of my life. I've hunted here and enjoyed the scenery, but it's time to let it go." Doss, a member of the research faculty at Michigan State University's school of medicine and a past farm safety educator, noted, "Our family has chosen to keep the land in its natural state, and that has preserved its natural beauty."

Sheridan personnel will conduct an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, September 13. Bidding is already under way and will continue until 1 p.m. Tuesday, September 15.

"People will be able to view and inspect the land and home thoroughly, then bid from their phone, tablet or computer at their convenience. People can research it at www.sheridanauctionservice.com or call our office at 517-676-9800," said Sheridan.
