PRIVATE 6 BR/3.5 BA HOME ON 5 ACRES W/ 300' SHORELINE.

Bellaire / Shanty Creek House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

BIRCH SHORE ACRES - NOW BOOKING FOR 2014! Beautiful home on 5 very secluded acres with 300' of shoreline on the West shore of Intermediate Lake. Very private setting, flat property, with abundant trees, large grass areas, and great swimming. There is a SAND BEACH area next to the lake.

THE HOME

The home is approximately 3300 square feet, with 6 bedrooms and a bonus room that can be used as a bedroom. One of the bedrooms is part of an in-law quarters which has its own kitchen and bathroom.

In the main house, the kitchen has been completely remodeled with all new appliances and cabinets (Spring of 2008). The family room has vaulted ceilings with lots of glass to view the lake. There is also a large stone fireplace. On the main level, there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (all bathrooms are new). One of these is only a toilet and sink. Upstairs, there is another bedroom, full bathroom, and a bunk/play room.

THE LAKE

Intermediate lake is a wonderful fishing and sports lake. It is approximately 7 miles long, and about 1.5 miles wide in the middle. It runs north-south, which makes the lake fairly calm. As a part of the Upper Chain O'Lakes, several other lakes are accessible as well. Bring your boats or jet skis. There is a new dock with one boat lift. THERE IS A 20' PONTOON WITH A 75hp MOTOR AVAILABLE FOR RENT ($600/wk not including gas). There are also 2 kayaks and a Pedal Boat (free) for your use.

Great place for large groups

  • 5 of 5
I was booking a trip for a group of incoming grad students (10 adults in total). It's not very easy to find a place that has 10 separate beds, so this place was unique in that regards.

Location: Intermediate Lake, while very nice, is a bit of a hike to some of the big stuff people like to do in that area (Sleeping Bear, Silver Lakes, Traverse City, Mackinaw City, etc.). Note: this mainly had to do with the activities we selected. There are lots of things nearby (Shanty Creek, fruit picking, gas stations, supermarkets large and small, etc.). This did nothing to diminish from the comfort of the house, the amenities (kayaks, paddle boat, large rooms, large kitchen, comfortable bathrooms, large washing machine, HUGE water heater - never ran out of hot water, etc.). The property was in great condition, clean, and the pictures don't do the house justice. The lake was also very comfortable to be in regardless of the hour (I personally did morning kayak rides almost every day). The in law suite is also really nice as we had one couple with us, so that gave them some extra comfort to have their own room living quarters and bathroom. We did use both kitchens when preparing multiple dishes (we cooked A LOT during our week stay, probably 60-70% of our meals were home cooked). There was no shortage of cookware and a good amount of "bonus" stuff that was simply there for us to use (spices, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc.)

The owner: Very responsive and prompt to questions, concerns, etc. Also was accommodating to a couple special requests, which helped our group out tremendously.

Check in/Check out: very seamless and easy. The owner is very reasonable in the expectations for both which made the in and out easy for us to manage.

All in all, I would gladly stay here again if I took another large group up north for a week.
