About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms counting the loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
You will discover T.P.'s Place on the east shore of Torch Lake. The home is set on 100 feet of shoreline at the end of a gently winding drive. T.P.'s Place was custom built to focus on comfortable living and the beauty of the lake. Stunning sunset views over the lake can be enjoyed from almost every room of the home.
The vaulted great room is the center of this home. It boasts a one and a half story ceiling with a natural stone fireplace giving it the classic Northern Michigan feel. Upstairs, the master bedroom suite offers a private bath with soaking tub and access to the balcony overlooking the lake. This home has all the amenities plus the private Torch Lake waterfront you will love.
Torch Lake is ranked one of the most beautiful lakes in the world with crystal clear water and a stunning aqua blue tint reminiscent of more tropical climates. The lake itself is 19 miles long by about 1 1/2 wide. It offers access to extensive recreational boating on 'the chain of lakes' which includes: Lake Bellaire, Grass River, Clam Lake, Torch Lake, Torch River, Skegemog Lake, and Elk Lake. This navigable water way totals some 65 square miles beautiful scenery. Fishing opportunities include, Lake Trout, Bass, pan fish and in 2009 the State Record Muskie was caught in Torch Lake. The Torch Lake sand bar is a popular anchorage at the southern tip of the lake. This unique feature offers boaters the perfect location to swim, play Frisbee, volleyball, or just enjoy relaxing on the boat. The Grass River and Skegamog Nature Preserves, the Villages of; Bellaire, Alden, and Elk Rapids are all accessible by water and provide extensive hiking, shopping, and dining opportunities.
Shows, festivals, restaurants, and shopping are available in Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petoskey, and the Leelanau Peninsula, all within an hours drive. Mackinac Island, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Beaver Island, and a variety of lighthouses are a little further but well worth the trip. This home is perfectly situated to provide access to all the magnificent beauty that Northern Michigan has to offer.
Note: We will be finalizing our 2016 calendar and start taking reservation at the end of this season, August 2015.

The Torch Lake Sand Bar: No summer would be complete without a visit to the Torch Lake Sand Bar. A unique shallow area on the South tip of the lake where a large number of boats congregate. Many visitors take advantage of the shallow, sometimes ankle deep, water to swim, play frisbee, volleyball, or take a stroll to the floating snack bar. Ski boat, pontoons, and jet skis are avialble to rent from several area marinas.
Traverse City: A short drive south will bring you to Downtown Traverse City, various winery tours on Old Mission Penninsula, or an afternoon at Horse Shows by the Bay. Horesback riding is available at Ranch Rodolph in the scenic Boardman Valley. The more adventuresome can find parasailing, helicopter, and hot air balloon tours. Just need to relax, try the Grand Traverse Resort Spa for a truely delightful treat. All this within 45 min of your home base on the sparkling east shore of Torch Lake.
About: My family has shared a lifetime of memories on this shoreline. We have recently found that we are unable to enjoy our lake as much as we would like and we have decided to share it with others. It is my sincere hope that many new families will be able to create the type of wonderful memories of time together that I cherish.
Why Bellaire, MI, USA:
This home was designed and built by my father T.P. and for him it was all about Torch Lake. Almost every room in the home has a view of the water. It is carefully tucked in to the natural woods with a nice open shoreline. It was his dream and I can only hope that you will enjoy it half as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Torch Lake is a part of a 65 mile chain of lakes including Torch, Elk, Skegamog, Bellaire, the Grass River Nature Preserve, and various connecting lakes and streams. This allow access by boat to a variety of towns, shopping, and restaurants. Everything is available by water from a burger and fries to fine dining. An afternoon boat ride into Alden for ice cream cones is one of our families favorites.
