About Shelly Kesh

We currently live in Waterford, MI without two kids and two dogs. When our kids got super busy with sports we decided to share our home with others and it's been a great experience. Over the years we've been lucky to have people who have come back year after year. Several have fallen in love with the area and purchased places of their own.

Shelly Kesh purchased this house in 1997

Why Shelly Kesh chose Bellaire / Shanty Creek

We may be biased, but we feel like we have the best spot on the lake! Our home sits across from a nature preserve and it's on the widest part of the lake so looking out from the house you really get that up north, quiet feeling, even though you're never more than a short boat ride to Torch Lake where all the action is. The house itself has large windows and door walls and an all glass sunroom with gorgeous views of the lake. There's a huge deck very close to the waters edge and the way the house is situated you're not looking at the neighbors.

What makes this house unique

Great spot for biking, jogging, long walks. Close to Bellaire for shopping and restaurants. Visit Shorts Brewery and Lulus!

Swan visitors and gorgeous fall colors

  • 5 of 5
Best stay ever! The weather could not have been any better. The Kesh's vacation home was just what we needed. Perfect size for us, beautifully decorated and had all the conveniences. We were there to attend a family reunion in Alden, so our stay there was mostly enjoyed in the mornings with the visiting swans by the dock and, the mist across the lake, and the fall colors across the lake. We also enjoyed the evenings with the loons calling out from across the lake and the incredible sky full of stars. We would definitely want to come back. Great location with shopping and restaurants nearby. Thank you!

Clam Lake

  • 5 of 5
The home was very nice. We loved having a dock that we could fish from as well as tie our boat to without having to keep pulling in and out. The property was very clean and well maintained. Very relaxing. We had a great time!

What A Gem On Clam Lake

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two weeks and loved everything about our vacation. The house is just as described and well maintained. Even though the kitchen is small and there is one bathroom, there was plenty of room for our family. I was concerned about no air conditioning but a few fans to keep the air flowing during the heat of the days when it was 80 degrees plus never posed a problem. It was always breezy and beautiful on the lake. We found ourselves closing the windows and putting on sweatshirts by 8 pm every day. The location is the best. We enjoyed the peacefulness of Clam Lake and took the pontoon we rented from Dewitt’s over to Torch Lake daily for some sand bar fun. Shelly was so helpful with all our questions and made sure the house was stocked with linens, the essential paper products and even spices & condiments in the kitchen. We just replaced everything we used before we left. We loved touring the area towns and the many street festivals and farmers markets in Bellaire, Alden, Elk Ridge, Charlevoix and Petoskey. Boating on beautiful Torch Lake and docking in the town of Alden to shop and get ice cream from Higgins Grocery Store was a great memory. We even had some fun fishing - the best fishing for bass, pike and perch was right across from the cottage near the preserve. There was so much to see and do in a very peaceful setting. All in all, we would highly recommend this house. We are already talking about coming back here next year.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting this cottage for the last 15 years, mostly in the summer, sometimes in the winter. It is extremely clean , comfortable and well maintained. It is one of my favorite spots on earth. There is plently to do without having to venture very far. Great restaurants, plenty of water sport rentals available, lovely little shops, fruit and vegetable stands and wonderful places to walk. Neighbors are quiet, yet friendly. Truly, a little piece of heaven!

A Great Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has everything you need for a great weekend away. It is right on Clam Lake, which is a nice quiet small lake. The cottage contains everything you need for a home away from home and is not too far away from some small town shopping and some good restaurants. I recommend Pearl's in Elk Rapids.
