This 1904 home has been loved by our family for more than 40 years. It's been renovated with a fun mixture of farmhouse, vintage, and whimsical artistry to welcome guests. The upstairs is open and spacious with a tricky old staircase! The downstairs has a full kitchen, living area has a cozy electric fireplace, and the bathroom is sparkling brand new. With the exception of marble tile in the bathroom and vintage flooring in the kitchen, there are original wood floors throughout the home.

The space
This turn of the century home will take you back in time...when there was no internet! In place of WiFi, we offer a Victrola record player and collection of vinyls for you to experience and a tv with local channels...or you can enjoy your own tunes on the Bluetooth option on the "modern" Victrola. Our "off the grid" location invites you to kick back on the front porch, back porch or large yard and just enjoy each other's company. Our village population is less than 1,000, so our streets are quiet for strolling, biking, or running. Within walking distance, is Intermediate Lake with docks for fishing, a park for play, small town shopping and dining. Lake Michigan, Torch Lake, Glacial Hills Nature Trails, Breweries, Distilleries, Wineries, ski resorts and snowmobile trails are all within 10 miles. Check out the bulletin board in the kitchen for local events scheduled during your stay that might interest you, and a list of where to find amenities you may need during your stay.
And yes....the little shoe on display in the living room with the soul worn through, was found within the upstairs walls when the lathe and plaster was removed for remodel. Makes you wonder how many little pairs of feet wore that shoe and reminds us of how fortunate we are today!

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire house and lot with plenty of room for boat trailers. We do have a garage on the property that can be used for sheltering bikes or motorcycles. The nearest boat launch is only a few blocks away on Intermediate Lake. The nearest boat launch for Torch Lane is 6 miles away. Lake Michigan beaches, 7 miles. Don't have your own boat? Paddles & Pedals in Bellaire will deliver kayaks, paddleboards and bikes right to the house for you!

Other things to note
Please let us know if you have any special requests. We do have a couple vintage bikes, (named School Bus, Black Betty and Big Red) to cruise the neighborhood and tour the village. We also have a Cornhole board game and bags for outdoor fun. An electric heater is available and can be used upstairs if more heat is needed in the cooler months. Blankets and pillows for the sofa bed can be found in the downstairs bedroom closet. Portable (vintage) crib/pack n play, and additional lawn furniture are just some items available upon request. It never hurts to ask.

Location

Central Lake, Michigan, United States

Central Lake is a quiet little town with a population of approximately 950. We have no traffic lights and we're surrounded by a chain of lakes, forest, orchards, and farms. Several children live in the neighborhood and the elementary school is right across the street. We're minutes from boat launches on Intermediate and Torch Lake...both of which have sandbars to anchor and play. Also minutes from Lake Michigan beaches and several wooded trails to explore.
