This apartment is located on a 26 acre vineyard in Northwest Michigan and is attached to our winery tasting room (WaterFire Vineyards). The vineyard sits atop a steep ridge that extends up from Torch Lake. It is 1/2 mile walk to Torch Lake or 5 minute drive to beaches on Lake Michigan. The deck has sweeping views of the vineyard and the space offers one queen bedroom, a kitchenette with oven and small fridge, and a sitting area.
“The space is very cozy and clean. The high ceilings throughout allowed for a lot of natural light. We LOVED that the Airbnb was pet friendly. The property is beautiful, and the tasting room is intimate and wonderfully decorated. As stated in the listing, the tasting room is directly attached to the Airbnb so music and mumbles can easily drift through the walls. It was not very disruptive of our stay, and it’s only during tasting room Open hours. Chantal was very helpful and responsive to messages before and during our stay. Ellis was very informative in the tasting room as well. She even answered some more technical questions we had about the property, grapes, and wine making process. She gave us a lot of suggestions for surrounding nature trails and dinner hot spots. We will definitely be visiting again soon.”
Lovely peaceful retreat on Intermediate River. Steps to downtown Bellaire: Short’s beer, unique stores, restaurants and movie theatre. This tranquil space is the perfect romantic getaway for 2 In the heart of Michigan’s prime recreation area, minutes away from championship golf courses, ski runs, hiking, biking trails and beautiful Torch Lake. Enjoy wine tasting, craft beer, Mammoth Craft Distillery and Bee Well Cider and Meadery, or just select a book from our library and relax on the dock!
“Fred and Carol are positively the best hosts you could ever ask for. From the start they are able to greet you at the drive (since we were in quarantine - they did so social distancing the whole time - which was very unfortunate considering you'll want to talk with them during your visit - they are INCREDIBLE people!). They will run you through everything you need to know about your stay - everything is very straightforward! The only thing you need to remember is to keep the gate locked because the hosts sometimes bring their utterly gorgeous kitty cats into the yard at times - also, security purposes. If you have allergies to cats, like I do, but still love cats and love to pet them - you will be in heaven with your stay! In fact, you'll feel better in your room than you'll feel at your house with your two cats because your room will be 100x more clean! Kayaking is must if you are able to do so! As warned by the hosts, kayaking to Lake Bellaire is easier going to rather than from - this is good to remember - but also keep in mind this is a wonderful adventure! My boyfriend and I both agree that this was one of our favorite trips we've been on and it wouldn't have been the same without Carol and Fred!”
This tiny home is brand new from ground up in the spring of 2019! It’s a industrial style home and equipped with everything you’ll need for a great stay! Please make note of the spiral staircase as it is steep. It’s located in a private corner of our property with its own drive so you will feel completely on your own. It’s located about 7 miles from Bellaire and Shorts brewery as well as torch lake. It’s about 45 minutes from traverse city, Charlevoix and Petoskey.
“This was one amazing Tiny Home! The experience was great. Perfect place for a couple or one person. I love the outdoorsy woods theme. My favorite part was the cute fire place out front. I definitely recommend & will like to rent again in the future. :)”
