Not just a summer getaway! Come enjoy northern Michigan in the winter months as well! Much to do.....skiing, tubing, snow shoe, wander from winery to winery and brewery to brewery. This property sits directly on Clam Lake. You have beautiful views immediately when you open the door. The whole back wall is nothing but windows with spectacular water views. Open the windows for a very nice breeze. You can even view the Torch Lake sunset right from the sitting area. If hot summer nights are not your cup of tea then close up the windows and turn on the air conditioning.
You will find everything you need to cook a full meal. . All of the furniture is new. Sleeping arrangements include a brand new queen Murphy bed (looks like brown armoire) and a queen sofa sleeper. Also, the bathroom has fresh towels and toiletries.
For the boating enthusiasts, the public launch is 1 mile down the road East. Your trailer can be kept at the access site or across the street from our condo. Dewitt Marina right across and down the water from the property rents boats daily if that is more your speed. Dewitt Marina also has boat slips for rent.....just need to call in advance. Fourth of July Fireworks are spectacular! Set off on the South end of Torch Lake. These can also be viewed from the docks in Alden.
Be sure to take a stroll through Alden for some light shopping and a very large ice cream from Higgins General store. Alden also has a Farmer's Market every Thursday evening from 5-8. Also Bellaire is a nice quaint town as well. A must is a visit to Shorts Brewery for micro brew favorites.
Bikers and runners alike have some very hilly roads around. For a nice hilly hike or bike in the woods check out Glacial Hills trails less than 10 minutes drive. There are also nice flat roads to walk and bike along. If fishing is of interest all of these lakes have great fishing opportunities.
Fall colors are incredible and this area has spectacular golf courses as well. Winter activities including skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, snow shoe etc. are all available as well.
All in all this is a very quiet, and pleasant place to spend a vacation. The central location is ideal for many possible day trips.
