We had the best time in this wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

The week was perfect! I had planned to venture out to more places around the state but there was not reason to leave Clamalot. Fires by the lake at night and lots of water fun during the day from the best location on the lake. It was an easy run up through Clam lake and green river or to rip down to the sand bar and enjoy the 'scene'. The house was perfect for family and friends to come and go during the week and the covered deck with two big picnic table were host to great dinners while enjoying the view.

Perfect place for both relaxing and exploring!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful week at Clamelot on Torch Lake. The cottage was spotlessly clean, with towels, pillows, and sheets all provided (not always the norm in northern Michigan cottages). The setting couldn't have been more perfect with a wide grassy yard and sandy beach (also a little unusual for a Torch cottage) where we could sit in the adirondack chairs enjoying the view of the lake and sunsets. The cottage itself is very well-equipped from living room to bathrooms to kitchen, even providing beach and water toys. We made several meals with no difficulty using both the vintage stove and the brand new fridge.

The sleeping arrangements are spacious and well-suited for close friends and family. The main floor bedroom's sleep number bed was a nice luxury. Upstairs, comfortable beds fill three separate but linked sleeping areas. A/C and several fans, plus lots of windows ensure comfortable temperatures.

There is a clothes dryer in the cottage for wet towels, but no washing machine, so bring enough undies for the week.

From Clamelot, you can swim, kayak, or boat directly from the beach. Or drive to many wonderful "up north" adventures including mountain biking, golf (at least 6 courses within about 15 minute drive), hiking, shopping, wine and beer makers and more. Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, or Charlevoix are an easy drive as well. Dockside restaurant and a convenience store are basically next door (but far enough away to ensure privacy). Full service grocery in Bellaire is just 10 minutes away.

Colleen, the owner, is quick to respond to any questions, and goes out of her way to ensure you have a great vacation.

All in all, the charm, comfort, and location of Clamelot make it a great place for a Torch Lake vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely, kind and detailed review! You are always welcome here at "Clamelot", especially after treating and enjoying the home like it was your very own. So happy you found many of the wonderful activities and adventures to explore... not to mention time relaxing in those adirondack chairs on the beach! Please come again soon. Best Regards, Colleen Ward P.S. We are currently looking for a suitable clothes washing machine for next year! :)
