A haven for plant and animal life, the Grass River Natural Area encompasses lakes, a meandering river, rushing streams and crystal clear creeks — a haven for plant and animal life, including both rare and endangered species. This natural eco-guardian project lies midway on the Chain of Lakes waterway, a connector of Clam Lake, Torch Lake and Lake Bellaire. It is open seven days a week from dawn to dusk....MoreCollapse
The property is in a scenic area on a chain-of-lakes 67 miles long. Clam Lake runs into Torch Lake which National Geographic named the 3rd most beautiful lake in the world! Clam Lake also runs into the Grass River Nature Preserve - a beautiful preserve including the river and a large protected section of land which fronts on the river and has great walking trails! The preserve has an education center and offers terrific nature programs for all ages. It is handicap accessible.
The area is full of old growth trees which give you a sense of peace and tranquility. The trees are beautiful all year but in each season the landscape changes into fall colors, winter snow, spring wildflowers, and summer shade. The cabin's location is also surprisingly near sensational golf and ski resorts, gambling casinos with headliner entertainment, the small towns of Bellaire and Alden, the nearby cities of Traverse, Charlevoix, Petoskey, Harbor Springs. There are shops filled with one-of-a-kind pieces and ready for you from the budget shopper on up! Dining in the area is terrific: lots of great restaurants from ice cream parlors to 4 star gourmet cuisine. Every visitor will be very happy they came. Something wonderful for the young and not so young, casual or intense fitness, and land-lubber or water enthusiast. Families return year after year, generation after generation to this rare and beautiful area. Kayaks and pontoon boat available. Inquire about rates for pontoon boat.
Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: I grew up spending summers on Torch Lake around the corner from Clam Lake. My family moved fulltime to Petoskey in 1985. I have always loved the chain-of-lakes for the natural beauty and recreational opportunities.
Why the Owner Chose Bellaire, MI, USA:
The cabin's privacy and location on Clam Lake made it an opportunity too good to pass up. I intend to pass on the property to my children.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cottage was built in the 1950s by a company known for building cottages with character in the area. I was drawn by the wood paneling, screened porch and covered boat slip.
