The space
This waterfront cottage is on Clam Lake, between Torch Lake and Lake Bellaire on the Elk River Chain of Lakes, with quick and easy access by boat or by land to Torch Lake and the rest of the Chain of Lakes.

Dockside bar and restaurant on Torch Lake is a ten minute walk or boat ride from the cottage, and Torch Lake sandbar is also a short boat ride away. The golf courses and ski slopes at Shanty Creek, and also the restaurants and shops of Bellaire and Alden are all within 15 minutes’ drive.

The long slender shape of Clam Lake, with its calm and warmer water, is ideal for boating and water sports. Bring your boat or rent one from one of three rental locations on Clam Lake and tie up to our permanent dock. The public boat ramp on Clam Lake is five minutes (1.5 miles) away. Enjoy fun and safe swimming and fishing right off the dock, which is situated 100 yards inside the start of the Clam River no-wake zone. Grass River is less than ten minutes by boat for superb fishing, and nature lovers will really enjoy the walking trails of the Grass River Natural Area, accessible by boat or car. An ideal half-day for a paddler is launching from Bellaire and paddling 8.5 miles down Intermediate River, across Lake Bellaire, through Grass River, and across Clam Lake back to the cottage. Or continue on the last half mile to Torch Lake and Dockside bar and restaurant for drinks and a great meal. The small public beach adjacent to Dockside is a great place to pull your kayak or canoe out if you continue past the cottage. Trails for mountain biking, hiking, running, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling are 15 minutes away at Glacial Hills, or explore northern Michigan wine tasting - Torch Lake Cellars winery is 10 minutes from the cottage.

One of the best parts of the cottage is the deck above the boat house over-looking Clam Lake. The deck is perfect for outdoor meals, watching the boats, kayaks, and swans float by, and taking in sunsets over the marina and Clam River bridge. The cottage has a large living room and kitchen and two full bathrooms to accommodate groups. It sleeps 8 comfortably with 2 queen beds, 1 full bed, and 3 twins. The main bedroom has 1 queen bed, sleeping 2. The second bedroom that faces the lake has 1 queen bed, 1 full bed, and 2 twin loft beds, sleeping 5 or 6. There is also a murphy bed with a twin mattress in the living room for additional sleeping. If the size of your group is slightly larger than 8, please contact us to discuss options. The large living room is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings around the fireplace. With cathedral ceilings, a 65” wifi-enabled HDTV to watch your favorite sports and movies, and plenty of comfortable seating on two couches, two arm chairs, and several director’s chairs that can be moved around as needed, your family and friends will have plenty of space to enjoy a memorable and relaxing vacation. At the end of 2017 we painted and updated the furnishings in the living room and both bedrooms to give the cottage a fresh look. The garage has room for one vehicle and the driveway can hold up to 3 more vehicles or 2 vehicles plus your boat trailer.

We have worked hard to create a home that is welcoming and comfortable for our guests, and we hope you’ll love the memories you make staying at the Cottage on Clam Lake as much as we do.
