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