House rules
The host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
Comfortable, spacious chalet in the trees, short 5 minute walk (across E. Torch Lake Dr.) to public access to beautiful Torch Lake. Close to downtown Bellaire, Short's Brewing, Shanty Creek and Dockside and a short drive to Glacial Hills Nature Conservancy for Biking and Hiking. Great for family summer vacation or cozy ski weekends.
Very strong Wifi for folks that want to school and work from "vacation"!

The space
Large comfortable chalet surrounded by hardwoods with a real tree house nestled in the private backyard. Majestic 2 story cut field-stone fireplace highlights the great room. Eat-in updated country kitchen overlooking the woods and spacious back deck. This three bedroom home sits in the middle of a small private lane on over an acre of trees on a hill above South East Torch Lake Drive, across the road from the lake and just minutes drive from the town of Bellaire.
Torch Lake is not much of a "beach" lake but there are 3 close by public accesses (one just across the main road from the house). Please see "Neighborhood Description" for more information. Also check out the photo captions of public access photos.
We have cozy bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a fully appointed kitchen with everything you could need. We have decorated in a comfortable upscale rustic style.
The backyard has a large deck complete with bbq and family sized table and chairs for outdoor dining plus a hammock for your relaxation. There is a fire pit and even an actual TREEHOUSE where the kids can play or the adults can savor a cigar and cocktail after a long day enjoying the area.
We also have old Torch Lake cottages if you are interested in a more rustic experience. The lake property consists of 2 small lakefront cottages (a 1 bedroom and a 2 bedroom) on the same property a very short distance from Treehouse with a dock and fire pit. Ask about availability if interested.

Guest access
The house, one car attached garage, back yard deck and treehouse. (The additional garage is NOT included in the rental.)

Other things to note
PET POLICY:
We love to allow guests to bring their pups with them on vacation. We ask an additional $40 cleaning fee for approved pets. Please "scoop the poop" before leaving. We also ask that you keep your pet off of the furniture/beds. I understand that is not always possible and in that case we ask that you bring your own "dog blankets" to cover up the furniture. It is not feasible for us to launder all the bedspreads and upholstery after each guest and we want the place to be as clean as possible for the next guests. Please contact us ahead of time with information on your pet for approval.
FIREWOOD FEE:
Firewood is available for guest use on an "Honor Bar" system.
$1.00/ log - Just leave the cash in the jar

We are on a hill above Torch Lake though you cannot see it through the trees.(E. Torch Lake Dr. is a busy street so cross with caution.) Torch Lake is a great lake for boating however only a couple of public beaches on the lake. There are a number of pedestrian public accesses very near by. The access just across the street has no sand to speak of but you can put in a kayak or paddle board there. A bit south off Pinnell Road you can find a slightly larger access with a small sandy beach and picnic table.
Dockside and Butch's with a public boat launch area and the famous Sandbar are a short drive away for your larger water toys.
Of course, Bellaire's own Short's Brewery, Ruthie's Dairy Twist, and Bellaire Bar (a must for olive burgers) are only a few minutes up the road.
We are approximately 30-40 from Traverse City. A couple of miles away, Shanty Creek Resort for golf and Schuss Mountain for skiing in the winter as well as country road biking and cross country skiing make this an all-season escape.

Native Michigander, but living in California for almost four decades. We have family cottages on Torch Lake, MI and decided to purchase another lovely home for our family to enjoy when we come Up North each summer. When we are not hosting family gatherings, we decided open it up for others to enjoy.
