That breaks down to about $436,000 for each property, which all come furnished.

But they’ll have to be purchased as homes away from home, so to speak. While certain properties can be bought for residential purposes — a buyer, for now, would need to sweep up the entire portfolio to keep its current use in place: bed and breakfast stays, and vacation rentals.

The homes, located in Calumet, date to the early 1900s and were built during the peak days of copper mining in that neck of the state. In total, the sale would include 40 bedrooms, 33 bathrooms and 35,000 square feet of living space.

Among the gets are the Laurium Manor Inn. Marked by a white exterior and a large porch, Pres. Teddy Roosevelt once stayed there. The Victorian home measures 13,000 square feet and comes with 11 guest rooms, all of which have private bathrooms. What’s more, there’s also a dining room with elephant leather wall covering and a fireplace made of Tiffany glass tile.
