About Holly A Schienke
I am a nurse and my husband is an engineer. We have three beautiful children ages 7, 9, and 11. We bought this home to make memories that will last a lifetime with our children.
Holly A Schienke purchased this House in 2015
Why Holly A Schienke chose Bellaire
This property is an amazing oasis. I truly believe this is one of the best locations on the lake. Out of the front window you see pristine unobstructed views. The south side of the property is situated on the canal for boat hookup, fishing, or enjoying the water. The north side of the property is a wooded parcel. It does not get any more private than this! The water is clear, shallow and great for swimming. There is an island out front, great for taking the kayak on an adventure. Most of the property at the lower end of the lake is naturally wooded, therefore there are very few properties in the view. You can often see eagles flying on this end of the lake. There are pristine views of the island in the center of the lake. The water is warm and calm, great for skiing, tubing, and water sports. We bought this home to watch our 3 children grow up and make memories for them to enjoy for a lifetime. We hope you will share those same memories with your friends and family. The location is awesome, close to Leelanau Peninsula, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinac Island, Traverse City, and many more great places to tour.
What makes this House unique

Great place for a large family!
Nice home, large yard, plenty of space for boats, nice fire pit area. Owners are very responsive and a pleasure to rent from.
the property was big and beautiful. Private and clean.
The home was clean and spacious and very accommodating to our larger family of 8. Beautiful view of the lake and the outside grounds were big and great for playing games. It was the general consensus that this lake is our favorite. Big enough for our 25 ft. boat, for skiing and tubing but quiet and peaceful enough as well so you really feel like you are getting away. Loved listening to and watching the loons.
Wonderful family vacation
A delightful home in a perfect setting. So much to do and yet still very relaxing. We came from Wisconsin, California and Pennsylvania to enjoy a week in the Torch Lake area and it didn’t disappoint. Boating, tubing, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, fishing, paddle boarding, bon fires, and croquet were some of the activities we enjoyed. The home had just the right ambience: beautiful, welcoming, well equipped and gorgeous views with plenty of outdoor space. Very responsive owners who patiently addressed even our most trivial concerns. Thank you! The unanimous response at the end of our vacation was ‘When can we come back?!’
Spacious and peaceful
Great location on the lake. It was very peaceful. House was very roomy and they thought of everything. It was extremely hot and humid up there which is very unusual l, but were thankful for the A/C window and portable units. It definitely helped. Having a dishwasher, washer and dryer was convenient. Kids loved using the kayaks up and down the canal.
This was the perfect place for a family lake vacation! So peaceful. Loved being able to use the canoe, kayaks and paddle boards. Hope to return!
Perfect for families
Tim and Holly’s place was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 7 kids. The included paddle boards and kayaks were a hit with the kids. The water was shallow rather far out into the lake. The kitchen was stocked, we have rented many homes in the past and this one had more silverware, pots, pans,etc. than other places we rented. The beds were super comfortable (even the trundles) with plenty of blankets and towels provided. The only thing that could be an issue for some groups is that the Jack and Jill bathroom is divided by a shower stall with glass doors, however you can’t see the person in the other bathroom. Our group was fine with this set-up and we made sure to plan showers so we were able to lock both bathrooms or saved showers for the other bathroom. The town of Bellaire is not far at all and is great to visit for some ice cream, smoked fish, or craft beer. We all agreed that this is definitely a place we plan to visit again!
