Welcome To Michaywé

Michaywé is a 2,000 acre community with the amenities to support an active lifestyle, whether it’s on the links, in the pool, at the lake, on the courts, or along the miles of hiking and skiing trails. Pine and hardwood forests, lakes, and streams create the natural backdrop for more than 950 homes.


The community is a blend of many different lifestyles. The natural beauty of the area coupled with the amenities makes this a wonderful place to make the most out of a well-deserved retirement, to raise a family in the fresh air, to rejuvenate from the workday, or to enjoy that vacation home of your dreams.


Michaywé is a true community, with residents often getting together to take advantage of the varied amenities. Picnics, card playing, children’s play groups, crafting, kayaking, hiking, biking, golf leagues and outings, cross-country ski events, and all manner of social events make Michaywé one of the most desirable Up North communities.


Michaywé hosts many community events that are open to the public, including the annual Michaywé Arts & Crafts Fair in August and the Michaywé Players Dinner Theater in October.
