Prepper Waterfront Escape, 91 Acres, Perfect for the Survivalist

Prepper Waterfront Escape

Take a steel-frame, earth-sheltered house with multiple barns and outbuildings; protect it with 91 rural acres, then place it alongside the wide navigable Thornapple River, and you have an ideal survivalist or prepper waterfront escape.

Situated on a sprawling 91-acre plot, it is the perfect property to create your self-sufficient haven. The steel framed, earth-sheltered 1440 square foot 2-bedroom 1-bath home offers increased structural integrity essential for long-term viability. The home is set up for solar power upgrades and can efficiently maintain comfortable temperatures without relying on external power sources.

The property will allow you to stockpile supplies comfortably and cultivate a sustainable garden and crops to establish a secure, self-sufficient, off-grid lifestyle.

There is ample storage and workspace with a 24×24 attached garage and several outbuildings, including an insulated 24×36 shop with wood stove, a 14×24 shed, chicken coop, tool shed, and a 54×48 barn with a 16×24 upper loft.

With 20 acres of open tillable land for food production, crops, and livestock, this property provides a crucial factor for achieving self-sufficiency in producing your own food.


Other factors include the presence of valuable natural resources like timber, and the availability of water sources provided on this property will contribute to your overall self-sufficiency and sustainability. You’ll be captivated by the natural barrier of protection that the surrounding woods and water provide, ensuring privacy and peace of mind. The 62 acres of stunning lumber on the property will provide:

  • Endless hunting opportunities.
  • Gathering firewood.
  • Using the timber for your projects.

Access to clean and reliable water sources is paramount and one of the standout features of this amazing property. There are multiple water sources, including a drilled well and over 7,400 feet of combined water frontage on the Thornapple River, ensuring a steady drinking, cooking, hygiene, and irrigation supply.

This riverfront paradise offers a prime location with low population density when seclusion is essential. Along with a freshwater supply, land for food production, and an efficient earth-sheltered home, this property offers everything a survivalist or prepper has been looking for.
