Located just north of the Village of Bellaire, Sassafrass Lodge is the perfect base camp for your vacation Up North! The house is suitable for a family or 2 small families, or a group getaway. There is parking for 2 cars in the driveway, and for 2 more along the side of the house. From here it is a mere 1/3 of a mile to Short's Brewery and the Village center. Bee Well Meadery has recently opened in town. The Bellaire Smokehouse, offering smoked and fresh meats, is right next door. One block away is Richardi Park, which is a great family area with a playground, swimming beach, and basketball courts. 1 1/2 miles up the road is the Orchard Hill Road parking area for the Glacial Hills mountain bike and hiking trails. A 15 minute drive gets you to golfing and winter skiing at Shanty Creek and Schuss Mountain. And of course, Bellaire is surrounded by northern Michigan's Chain of Lakes.
