This $9 million, 15,000-square-foot home was featured on HGTV's "Amazing Waterfront Homes" in 2008. Located in Michigan's woodsy Upper Peninsula, it has more than 200 feet of private beach along Lake Michigan, as well as a private pier. The home was originally built as a family getaway and has all the amenities to match: lighted tennis court, home gym, screened gazebo, heated 20-person spa, putting green, wine room, carriage house and even an old-fashioned tire swing.
