QUAINT LOG CABIN ON PEACEFUL NORTHERN MICHIGAN LAKE

Bellaire / Shanty Creek Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

This lovely, clean, and unique log cabin is located in northern Michigan surrounded by beautiful hardwood trees and just feet away from a calm no wake lake. This cabin is truly a little gem on Thayer Lake and right across the street from the world recognized Torch Lake. If summer is your season you can enjoy your days either kayaking, fishing, napping in the hammock, sitting in the hot tub, taking a scenic walk, or visiting one of the many other lakes in the area. You will be minutes away from great restaurants and the great outdoors. If you wish to spend time here in the winter you will amazed at the proximity of many outdoor sports including; downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and of course ice fishing right out your backdoor. Any one of these activities couldn't be capped off any better then by sliding into the steaming water our your own personal hot tub.

Do not be fooled by picture. Dirty cabin, cigarette holes in sheets,must be very quiet, neighbors are full time and resent rental. Owner does not maintain HOUSE. We left early due to poor conditions.

Would return

Clean and lovely cabin. Great location. Even nicer than the pictures. Alden and Bellaire are quite close and public access to Torch Lake is just a short walk away. The hot tub was nice but the temperature was set too high for my taste and we were instructed not to adjust it. The shower was as small as you would expect in a cabin but it was so well set up (two shower heads even) that even my 6'8" boyfriend could shower comfortably. The beds are comfortable. The yard was perfect for relaxing. As an added bonus, we could exchange our towels at the inn in Bellaire.

A few things to know: the DVD player was broken which was a bit of a bummer on a rainy day. The lake isn't great for swimming. I hear it's good for fishing. We jumped in right away but came out with leaches attached. The paddle boat didn't work and the row boat had no oars. Also I couldn't find a child's size life jacket. The glass roofed living room is lovely but can get hot and also leaks in heavy rain. The site is not secluded, if that's what you're looking for. The neighbors are quite close and it's on a main road. However, it's very quiet, considering.

We had great time at a busy time of year (4th of July) and would return.

Great little place, wish to visit again soon.

  • 5 of 5
We had a couple's getaway at this cute little cabin. I wanted to mention a few things that weren't on the previous reviews or the descriptions. There is a stove, but no oven. However, they do have a toaster oven. We did not know this, but it didn't impact us too much. There is also a grill to use and a fire pit, so plenty of ways to cook food. Also, the neighbors are quite close. This wasn't a problem for us at all, but it is worth noting. The owners were very helpful. The glass roof and glass wall that faces the lake was beyond beautiful. The listing says 2 doubles, but the second room is a bunkbed (the bottom bunk is a double in size, but the top bunk is quite low making it somewhat tricky for an adult or two to sleep under there).
Overall, we had some surprising when arriving there, but many were good surprises! I would recommend the cabin and I would love to go back.

Wonderful Cozy Waterfront Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was a girls getaway and we had a wonderful stay. The cabin was very comfortable with soft/comfortable bedding & furniture. The hot tub was our favorite part... sunk-in the deck overlooking the lake @ 103-104 degrees and great jets after a long morning walk or long day of shopping (Brownwood - Charlevoix).
The weber grill worked great for fish from the market. We did not get on the lake but the neighbor did say there were some great blue gill or walleye (weather did not cooperate). The whitefish on the grill was some of the best I've ever tasted! The flat screen TV was perfect in the evening in the sunroom after a long day enjoying Northern Michigan. Cabin just had that cozy feeling and smell... real logs and new log/stone addition in the sunroom area. This is a place we would want to come to again. We did bike to Alden (3 miles) there are some cute shops and nice park and Torch Lake boat access. There is a nice shoulder so there were no worries with vehicles on the trek. A big thank you to Joe & staff for a wonderful stay.

Absolutely Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a truly amazing weekend! From the time we opened the door to our last minutes at the cabin it felt like home. This cabin is really one of the coziest places we have been and would love to go back to. We spent the weekend doing outdoor winter activites including a winter campfire, hot tubbing, and playing in the snow. Not only did we appreciate the quietness of the lake but we also took advantage of being a few minutes from a wonderful restaurant, Lulu's, and a neighborhood bar, Bellaire Bar.

It was hard to leave but we did so feeling refreshed! We would recommend this cabin to all of our freinds and family. The description says it is a little gem and we agree completely.

Thanks again.
