Going up north to the cottage becoming harder

As long as I can remember, there were lots of people who went to their cottage in northern Michigan every weekend.  It was a ritual and it has become an important part of the state's economy.

Now the Detroit News reports in today's papers that more and more up north properties are on the market and taking longer to sell.  Is this cyclical here in Michigan or is it a precursor of tougher times to come for the job-challenged Great Lakes state?
