Need a getaway? Come stay at The Ravens' Nest on Lake Skegemog. Torch and Elk Lakes are only a short boat ride away. Elk Lake can be seen from the back yard and Torch River is directly across Lake Skegemog from the home. These Chain O’ Lakes are famous for their crystal clear, Caribbean blue waters. Want to know why Lake Skegemog is the best choice? The water is warmer due to shallower shores, the lake is calmer and quieter with less boaters and homes, and it is in the center of Torch and Elk providing easy access to both.
Lake Skegemog is an all sports lake and is home to some of the best fishing in Northwest Michigan including an abundance of bass, white fish and perch. The Ravens' Nest is 6 minutes from Turtle Creek Casino, 15 minutes from Traverse City, and 30 minutes from Shanty Creek. The area is known for Michigan’s finest golf courses (The Bear, Elmbrook, Shanty Creek, & Hawk’s Eye), summer water sports, winter snow sports, breweries, wineries, casinos, unique shops, museums, horse shows, and much more!
The Ravens' Nest is a ranch style home with 70’ of waterfront right out the back door. It has a long, paved driveway and is located on a dead-end street. The yard is large and grassy providing plenty of room for relaxation, lawn games, and bonfires. Step down to the water from the small sea wall or jump in from the dock! The water is crystal clear and beautiful. Walk from the shallow, smooth rock shore (bottom becomes sandy a few feet from shore) out to the sand bar. Launch your boat only a mile from the home!
As one of the closest homes to the water, you will have perfect views of the lake from the living room, master suite, or deck when staying at The Ravens' Nest. The home has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a large living space. The living room has a full sleeper sofa and plenty of seating. The kitchen, larger than most on the water, is fully equipped with dishes, small and large appliances, cookware and anything else you may need.
Sleep soundly on a large king bed in the master suite, cozy pillow-top queen mattresses in 2 bedrooms or 2 twin mattresses in the 4th room. Each room has a full size closet and dresser for plenty of storage space. All bathroom and bedroom linens are provided. A washer and dryer are also included. A new grill, outdoor furniture, and a fire pit are available for your enjoyment.
If you grow tired of relaxing by the water, head to downtown Alden, Elk Rapids, or Traverse City for great restaurants, ice cream shops and boutiques. There is so much to do, and everything is so close … you will love staying at The Ravens' Nest!
