  • Beautiful week at a beautiful lake house...

    "Intermediate Lake has been a home away from home for my family since 1983, and the Bellaire area for my father's family since the 60's. I grew up staying at Holiday Shores resort on Intermediate Lake for a week every August. We ventured away for several years staying on several other lakes throughout Northern Michigan, but our hearts were always at Intermediate Lake and we longed to go back. We finally returned to Intermediate Lake four years ago staying in a couple of other lake homes, but I would have to say this was all around my favorite spot. We had such a great time in this beautiful lake house. The layout is so open and airy with windows lining the entire front giving views of the lake from every angle. The house is decorated so nicely with pretty comfy furniture and an amazing dining room table. We loved having the fully finished walkout basement for added hang out space and the second refrigerator downstairs was perfect while we were down by the water. The outdoor furniture is very nice and comfortable. We were very impressed with how well everything is kept. We rented a pontoon for a couple of days allowing us to get out and enjoy the beauty of the entire lake and go to the sandbar for some great swimming. We loved taking the kayaks and paddle boat out at dust and dawn while the lake was calm and glassy. So peaceful. We found getting into the water from the shore pretty tricky with all the large rocks but the neighbor Tom was very nice in letting us use his frontage. Stairs with a railing off the dock or the shoreline would be ideal, especially for older people if the rocks are necessary to prevent erosion. But with that being said, in all of our years we have never stayed in a more friendly community. All of the neighbors are so amazing and inviting. Jerry, even invited us over to his "man cave" boat house to watch the game, etc. What a nice guy! Our daily walks were met with smiling faces and hellos. The "Secret Garden" at the bend in the road was so cute and fun to walk through. And the people of Central Lake itself are all so nice. We felt like a part of the community from the moment we pulled in the driveway. I would highly recommend visiting the Blue Pelican in Central Lake during your stay here. The outdoor tiki bar is so fun with live music and great service. This was our first family vacation without my dad. And we could not have asked for a better place. He would have love it. Thank you for a great stay."

  • Another great year!

    "This was our 2nd year at Critts Cove and it was another great vacation for the family. We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids - 7-6-2). Everyone had a great time on the sandy beach, long dock, and peaceful Intermediate Lake. We will definitely be coming back for a 3rd time!"

  • Awesome lakefront cottage!!

    "We just returned from a week's stay at this great cottage right on Intermediate Lake in Belllaire, MI. The center is town is just a few minutes away and has an excellent brewery for lunch/dinner (Short's), as well as a very busy ice cream stand! There is also a post office, grocery store (Family Fare), and laundromat within a 10 minute drive. If you are looking to go to mass while you are visiting, you may be surprised and happy to see a Catholic church just down the street! The cottage itself is great. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Although the bathroom/shower was small... it did the trick perfectly. There are three bedrooms, 2 with queen or full bed and the other has 2 sets of 2 bunk beds. There is a small TV with cable provided and the WIFI was excellent/fast!! The cottage itself was very clean and you can tell that Todd and Julie take pride in this property. The lawn was meticulous and the flowers planted throughout the property were in full bloom and beautiful. We loved the clothesline in the yard... used that a lot to dry towels and bathing suits. Trash is picked up onsite weekly, so you don't need to worry about delivering it any place. There is no A/C... but even during a heat wave while we were there (temps were 90-92), we didn't feel hot. Once the sun went down, we opened up the windows and had a nice lake breeze to cool the inside. My kids (6 and 8) loved jumping off the dock and playing water games. The water felt pretty warm in August. My husband went fishing every day in the rented kayak provided by the homeowners. Although it wasn't as stable as a fishing kayak, it did the trick and he was happy to catch some fish. We took day trips to Mackinac Island and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We also drove up to the UP to see what it was like. There were so many great places to see/do all within a 90 minutes-2 hour drive. We drove from PA to this rental cottage to see what Michigan was like. It was a vacation that did not disappoint. I hope we can return someday to this lovely cottage!!"
