I have to agree with Kwaltersmi. I grew up in Michigan doing all of the outdoor things including sailing and powerboating. My job took me to other States and when I had the opportunity to come back a couple years ago I jumped at it. BTW I also lived in Iowa for a few years so I can make a comparison. Michigan hands down.
The economy here right now has been in the toilet for a few years so a lot of the "vacation homes" are up for sale and though the asking price is right up there, the real price can be much lower. May still seem a little expensive compared to Des Moines but there is a lot more to see than cornfields.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.
IMHO Lake Michigan is better sailing and the beaches are a lot better. Basically from the state line north is one big beach. Lots of harbors and lots of things to see.
