About the Property
A spectacular 5 bedroom retreat for those not interested in 'roughing' it
Nestled among towering pines and hardwoods, this recently built craftsman style cottage home is ideally located on quiet Lake Skegemog and provides boat access to Torch, Elk, and Clam Lakes and Lake Bellaire. The well designed home features plenty of room for family and friends to enjoy time together or find a quiet space to relax and enjoy the solitude. There is no need to sacrifice the comforts of home with this well appointed property.
Lake Skegemog is not quite as well known as her sister lakes, Torch and Elk, but there are many advantages. The water warms much earlier in the season making early season swims or ski sessions much more enjoyable. Relative to Torch and Elk, there is much less boat traffic on Skegemog so quiet moments are much easier to come by. The fishing on Skegemog is also much more accessible with shallower water and tremendous populations of bass, perch, pike and world class musky.
Skegemog Point road is a breathtaking tree lined lane extending north directly from M-72 providing very quick access to Traverse City and downstate. Because the road terminates at the water, there is no through traffic providing a great atmosphere for morning walks.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
