Spacious modern cottage with large deck overlooking the golf course.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spacious, modern, and the deck was beautiful to relax on. It's right on the golf course and so quiet. Jacuzzi tub in master bath and fireplace. Comfy furniture and beds. Two bathrooms. Downsides were painful needle shower stream and 4pm check in and 10am check out. If im renting for two days I want two full days worth.

There are so many choices for things to do! We are located across the street from Shanty Creek. We are close to the skiing and tubing hills. If you venture into the village of Bellaire, you won't be disappointed. Short's Brewing Company is right downtown. Not only do they have 19+ beers on tap, the menu is extraordinary. They create the best food with local ingredients and have some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. Lulu's Bistro is right down the road from Short's, and offers casual dining with locally sourced food, and a top rate affordable wine list. The local movie theater has two screens and offers new releases weekly. Grass River Natural Area is a short drive and offers hiking trails, nature walks, education and learning areas, and wildlife viewing. Venture a little further and you will come upon the small town of Alden. If you are looking for a day of window shopping, Alden is the place for you. Alden Millhouse has everything you could want for the chef, baker, or kitchen gadget collector in your life. Other shops include Carter's Candles, Alden Outfitters, Curosities Antiques, LaVoix Designs Fashions, Nifty Things, Spencer Creek Trading Company, The Warm Fuzzy, Winter Workshop, Redeye Gallery, and The Pear Tree. After a full day, relax and enjoy a good meal at the Alden Bar and Grill. If you are up to more exploring, we are 40 minutes from Traverse City, Charlevoix, and Gaylord, We hope you will take this opportunity to give us a call or send an email. We welcome you to enjoy this beautiful area we call home.
