Our spacious cottage is great for families or a couple couples, or the girls shopping and wine getaways. Golfers, Skiers as well as hikers and bikers will enjoy the options that are all close by.
We are secluded with a 1.25 acre lot and just over 200 feet of lake frontage with a sandy beach for the kids and grandkids to play in. But also close to all the fun stuff like Torch lake, Golf, lots of shopping, skiing, hiking, biking and so much more.
Families will love the large lot and quiet safe area that has very little traffic. Apple and Cherry orchards are right next door. The boating and water sports are incredible. There are 5 lakes all connected together with the Grass and Torch Rivers, so you have over 100 miles of shoreline and over 31,000 acres of lakes to explore including Torch Lake which is just a few minutes away and has been voted one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
Hikers, bikers, runners, walkers and site seers will enjoy the quiet rolling hills and roads in our part of the area. You will see deer, wild turkey, swans, and our favorite, the Loons. The spring with the smells from blossoms from all the orchards and the morels in the woods is a quiet but nice time to visit. The fall with the incredible colors is worth a trip. Stop in at one of the maple syrup shacks along your way and enjoy true maple syrup.
Foodies will savor the Up North restaurant choices. Northern Michigan has become a vacation destination for food and wine lovers. There are so many choices you will need to come back again. Whether it be Cajun inspired food at Pearl's, Polish cuisine at Leg's Inn, or perhaps one of the farm to table restaurants or a cherry pie from one of the road side stands, you can't go wrong.
Shoppers will enjoy the many small towns all within a short drive. Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leelanau wine country, Elk Rapids, Petosky, Charlevoix, Gaylord and Boyne City, Harbor Springs all make for a nice day trip.
Golfers will love that there are 7 courses within 12 miles of the cottage including highly ranked ( #12 ) Hawks Eye, ( #16 ) Cedar River, and Arnold Palmer's Legend course at Schuss mountain. Within an hour's drive you will find courses from Jack Nicklause, ( The Bear ). Gaylord area has 17 courses from designers such as Robert Trent Jones, Tom Fazio, Rick Smith, Jerry Matthews to name a few. There are over 40 courses within an hours drive of the cottage.
Hunters can expect to find plenty of deer, wild turkey, as well as other small game. Fisherman will be in heaven as Clam Lake and the other 4 lakes are full of Bass, Perch, Blue Gill, Pike, Muskie and Atlantic Salmon. There is even a couple of winter Ice Fishing tournaments.

Year Purchased: 2013
Why the Owner Chose Bellaire, MI, USA:
We had been vacationing in the are for a number of years and saw this house that had room for our family of 6 as well as room for friends and relatives to come visit. It needed some love and attention to bring it up to date. With 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths and a large kitchen and family room, it has the perfect amount of space for family gatherings. 2 bedrooms are on the main floor and the other 3 are upstairs. The lot is 1 1/4 acres with over 200 feet of lake frontage. We have neighbors on one side and a small public access on the west side. Bring your boat / pontoon / water craft. DeWitt's marine and Butch's marine both offer pull up filling for all your water toys as well as beer, pop food and munchies for the day on the lake. Clam Lake is normally much calmer than Torch Lake because of it's size.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You will love the location, the quiet setting that is close to so many things Northern Michigan has to offer. When we found this place, it needed some love and lots of hard work and now we are sharing it with our family, friends and new friends we meet thru VRBO. You just can't beat waking up to a calm as glass lake, with the sounds of Loon's calling nearby. If its a rainy day, sitting on the porch as the rain hits the steel roof has it's own hypnotic melody that somehow makes a rainy day at the lake a good day to put your feet up and kick back with a book you've been wanting to read but haven't been able to find the time.
