One of the largest privately-owned islands in North America has been put up for sale, and it is located right here in Canada.

Batchawana Island sits in Lake Superior about 45 minutes north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.  It offers 5,200 acres of undeveloped land, and it is available to purchase for $14,950,000 today.

“Completely forested and undeveloped, Batchawana Island appears today largely as it would have at any point in the last thousand years,” says the listing on Colliers Unique Properties.

The listing adds that the land could be used for multiple opportunities including “timber value,” private hunting lodges, or a public hospitality operation.


Batchawana Island went up for sale a month ago, and its previous owner had plans to develop a private hunting club but never followed through.  Meaning, the island has nothing built on it at all.  The private island does offer its own beach at the southern end.

Should you have $15,000,000 in the bank, then this island may be for you.  You can view the full listing on the Colliers Unique Properties website, here.
