This is the perfect Northern Michigan hideaway no matter the season! The Maple View House sits high on a knoll surrounded by lush forest and expansive views of the countryside and beautiful Torch Lake. Escape the hustle and bustle in this secluded spot while still being close to all the fun in the area.
Whether you're looking for a quiet weekend reading, or a comfortable place to crash while you spend your days on the go, the Maple View House is going to please. Perfect for dog owners!

The space
The space is comfortable, warm and welcoming, yet simple. You'll get that 'at home' feel that a hotel or condo just can't offer.

The natural setting of The Maple View House makes it exceptionally peaceful and unique. Large growth trees surround the house keeping it cool, yet the sloping hills mean you have wonderful views and a breeze. Spend a warm summer night eating dinner and lounging on the deck and then move to the yard for a bon fire as the sun goes down. The quiet maple forest surrounding the home and the long driveway is a perfect spot for you and your dog to walk. No close neighbors. We provide dog dishes and a doggie bed for Fido.

There is an abundance of activities to draw people to Northern Michigan:
- The Lakes! Torch Lake, Lake Michigan, Intermediate Lake - all within minutes. Dozens of public access for swimming, beaching or launching a boat.
- Biking: Glacial Hills for mountain biking is nearby and if road biking is your thing, the house is off of East Torch Lake Drive a favorite for road bikers.
- Wine tasting: There are several wineries within 30 minutes and even more on Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas
- Picking Cherries! Northern Michigan is the Cherry Capital - lots of agri-tourism and fresh produce to be found
- Golf: World class courses in every direction

Winter Specifically: The Maple View House is a cozy and quite winter getaway. Get the wood stove going and curl up with a good book. The woods and views are amazing in the winter, you can see nearly 180* of lakes in the distance when there aren't leaves on the trees. Please note that you will need four wheel drive if there is snow on the ground. We will keep the driveway plows but there are steep spots that will require 4wd.
- Downhill and Nordic Skiing at many resorts - Shanty Creek (30 minutes), Boyne Mountain (40 minutes), Nub's Nob (1 hr+), Boyne Highlands (1 hr+), Crystal Mountain (1 hr 20 min).
- Tubing at Shanty Creek Resorts
- Avalanche Bay Water Park at Boyne Mountain
- The remote roads and woods around the house are great spots for snowshoeing

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire house, patio and yard.

Other things to note
WINTER BOOKINGS: Please note that the driveway is steep and a 4 wheel drive vehicle is strongly encouraged!

SUMMER 2021: Current settings are for 6 night minimum, check in on Fridays. I wanted to allow longer stays to have first dibs on the calendar. On May 1st I will open up for shorter stays of minimum 2 nights.

Please let us know if you plan to bring a boat on a trailer so we can advise the best place to park it - the driveway is narrow and a trailer would be difficult to turn around.

There is a TV, DVD player and a random selection of DVD's. However, there is no cable or local channels.

Pets are allowed. Dogs will love to go on walks down the driveway, road or through the woods.

Central Lake, Michigan, United States

Torch Lake's clear turquoise waters are world renowned and the beauty of Northern Michigan is equally as stunning. The Maple View House is just a half mile off of Torch Lake and a 3 minute drive to the famous Brownwood Acres (make sure to get there early on Sunday morning before the line for the hot donuts gets too long). There are small towns and attractions in every direction:
- Central Lake: 5 minutes - a cute, but small town.
- Bellaire: 15 minutes - home of Short's Brewery!
- Charlevoix: 25 minutes - restaurants, ice cream
- Traverse City: 45 Minutes - lots of restaurants, breweries, activities galore.
- Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes: 1.5 Hours
