"We stayed a week with four kids at this cottage. It really is very secluded and peaceful. The Cottage is old but updated very nicely and is very clean. The Lake and beach area is nice and got a lot of use from the kids, especially the swim platform. The sand in the water area is a bit soft and starts to get weedy roughly halfway down the dock. We rented the fishing boat, which is a great little boat, unfortunately the fish didn't cooperate very well, but it was August. We took a day trip to Young State Park, which is, IMO, the best swimming spot in Michigan for kids. Were very likely to return."

"We had a small hiccup in the very beginning of our stay but the owner was fabulous and made sure our stay was everything we wanted it to be. We used this house for our family Christmas- great house with plenty of room for everyone!"

"We stayed in this condo for our annual Christmas ski vacation with a tween and two teens. The pictures don't do it justice. There have been many upgrades and it's absolutely gorgeous, cozy and inviting. Something very important to me was the cleanliness, it was perfectly spotless and that always makes me more comfortable :) Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room to store clothes, coats, etc. so we didn't have to live out of suitcases. The location is wonderful, close to the pool. The access to the purple lift works nicely for the whole family, and we all enjoyed being able to come back to the condo at our leisure to warm up, grab a bite, etc. We took the shuttle into Bellaire to visit Shorts Brewery and that was very nice. Free shuttle, just tip the driver. The owners were fantastic to work with, it's apparent they take pride in this unit and want you to have the best stay possible. All in all, our expectations were exceeded in every way and I'm so glad we had already booked another weekend this month. We can't wait to go back!"

"We stayed with our family for a weekend of skiing at Shanty Creek. The condo is located down a curvy road from the Lakeview hotel (less than 1 min drive / 5+ min walk). Upon arrival we were amazed at the view of Lake Bellaire from the sliding glass door inside the unit. The unit contained everything we needed - a family room to relax and play cards after a long day of skiing, two bedrooms with comfortable beds/sheets, and a fully furnished kitchen. With one bathroom, the condo definitely sleeps a max of 4, though very comfortably. The condo is decorated with a northern Michigan feel which made the unit all the more cozy. We will definitely return for our next trip to Bellaire provided the condo is available. Stay over a February weekend for skiing with 4 people."
