Property description

This is a stunningly beautiful, newly renovated cottage on Clam Lake, just a stone's throw from Dockside, Torch Lake and the Torch Lake public beach. When you stay at the Lodge Cottage, enjoy easy access to the famous Torch Lake and the Torch Lake sandbar. The cottage has been meticulously decorated in an up-north lodge theme throughout. This property is just a few miles from both of the quaint villages of Bellaire and Alden.
This cottage has been meticulously maintained and renovated to provide luxury accommodations, with a comfortable feel. The lodge theme pervades throughout the cottage. Take a look for yourself at the beautiful lodge details: A Moose rug in the sitting room with handmade cedar furniture, to a cedar kitchen table that seats 8, to the rustic handmade bear and deer towel bars in each bathroom. Every necessity is provided from linens and bath towels, extra beach towels, barbecue supplies, condiments and cooking supplies.
Experience the best of both worlds: the calm, warm waters of Clam Lake, great for swimming, boating, paddle boarding, fishing and all water sports. Take a 5 minute boat ride through Clam River by Dockside to Torch Lake and all of its beauty. The famous Torch Lake sand bar is just a quick boat ride away.
Hikers and Mountain Bikers alike will enjoy the Glacial Hills Natural Pathway which is just 5 miles from this property. Skiiers will enjoy Shanty Creek Resort, just 9 miles away. Boaters will love the entire chain of lakes available from the property. Families will enjoy the fire pit and roasting marshmallows near the lake.

Enjoy beautiful sunsets on this beautiful piece of paradise away from home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We fell in love with the Torch Lake/Clam Lake area the first time we saw it. In the past we have rented on Clam Lake and found it to be the perfect location! We searched and searched and finally found this beautiful property. We would like to share our piece of paradise with others!

Why the Owner Chose Bellaire, MI, USA:
We Love the beauty of Torch Lake, but Clam Lake offers the best of both worlds. By renting the Lodge Cottage, you get the warm, calm waters of Clam Lake, a perfect spot to dock your own boat, great for swimming, boating, water sports, fishing, but yet have easy access 5 minutes away to Torch Lake, the sandbar and all of Torch's beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Serene sunsets await you at the Clam Lake cottage! Newly decorated Lodge Theme cottage. Everything is new throughout this cottage!
