What a treat coming back to Intermediate Lake. It truly is one of the most beautiful lakes in Northern Michigan. As a child we vacationed at Holiday Shores Resort for 12 years and have wanted to come back to Intermediate Lake ever since. The Bellaire/Central Lake area is so cute and great for a stroll, shopping in one of the little shops or grabbing a beer at Shorts Brewery. So naturally when we found this rental available we snapped up an August week. We could not be happier that we did. This was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed in our 32 years of renting and as an added bonus it is in the area we love most. Not only did this lake house far and above exceed all of our expectations the weather was amazing...we could not have asked for a more perfect week. The walk from the house to the water is a bit far, but my parents who are both in their late 60's had no trouble. There were a couple of days that it was quite windy and we had a lot of leaves and seaweed wash up on the beach early in the day but by the afternoon it got better. The rest of the week the beach and water were crystal clear and great for floating on our floaties or swimming out to the floating sun raft. You can not beat the privacy and seclusion you feel here. The home is beautiful with the perfect setup for multiple families or families with older children who need space of their own. And the appliances...WOW, a real treat for someone who likes to cook. Also I could go on about the deck for hours. Totally private, a huge outdoor table and plenty of comfy seats to sit and enjoy the gorgeous view of the lake. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.
