Lovely, spacious and immaculately clean cottage.
Our second summer vacation at this cottage. Once again, fun was had by all. Fishing and swimming off the dock. Nightly bonfires and outside picnics. Can't beat boating and tubing on Torch Lake. Enjoyed shopping in Alden and Bellaire. Discovered the local hiking trails and canoed Lake Bellaire. Family can't wait for next year.
What a magical little cottage!
What a magical little cottage! We loved every minute on Lake Bellaire and the home was perfect! Fires every night, plenty of fishing and lounging on the lake, paddleboarding, and pontoon boating.
Very clean, modern and spacious directly on the lake. Plenty of room for our family.
Great time was had by all. Morning and evening fishing from the private dock resulted in over 50 perch for the week and several bass. We loved the quick proximity to Torch lake and rented a pontoon for the day. Many beaches around and easy trips to Traverse City too. We were very pleased with the cottage and property. We will be back!
Beautiful, clean and what a view!
We have been vacationing on Lake Bellaire for many, many years and recently sold the family cottage but wanted to return to our wonderful lake this year. Our stay was made complete by having a wonderful place amongst the White Birch and Cattails. We saw and heard Loons, Eagles, Swans and a timid Muskrat.
The cottage was clean, inviting and comfortable. The kitchen had everything I needed to feed my crew. Bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. Family room area was perfect!
We will be back now that we have a fabulous place to stay!
Awesome quiet setting
We had a great week of vacation on June 25-July 2, 2016. The cottage is charming and very clean. It was a relaxing and peaceful week. Mornings were spent on the front porch with our coffee while watching the wild life on Bellaire Lake. The cottage accommodated all five of us comfortably and the beds were great. Many hours were spent going up and down the Chain of Lakes in our boat. The mooring provided worked well for our 4000 lb boat. On a couple nights we grilled and ate outdoors on the picnic table. What a fabulous setting for both our breakfast start and our evening meals. Thanks again Tom and Angie.
Ron It was great to hear and read how much you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Thank you for taking the time to post a response. We look forward to your return visit.
