About Mike Lambert

I grew up spending summers on Torch Lake around the corner from Clam Lake. My family moved fulltime to Petoskey in 1985. I have always loved the chain-of-lakes for the natural beauty and recreational opportunities.

Mike Lambert purchased this cabin in 1988

Why Mike Lambert chose Alden

The cabin's privacy and location on Clam Lake made it an opportunity too good to pass up. I intend to pass on the property to my children.

What makes this cabin unique

The cottage was built in the 1950s by a company known for building cottages with character in the area. I was drawn by the wood paneling, screened porch and covered boat slip.

This is our idea of what a cabin on the lake should be. It's not modern or fancy but just perfect for the north woods experience. Our host Mike was so welcoming toward our dogs and even put a ramp in the water for our aging Golden Retriever who refused to jump off the very low dock! He has a pontoon boat available for a very reasonable rental price. Mike grew up summering in the area so has knowledge of wonderful places to visit and great restaurants. He is concerned with his guests having a nice experience. The cabin is just as pictured and described in the listing. We are looking forward to returning next year!

It is a great location-and the view is beautiful. Close to Alden and Bellaire. Bedrooms are good size and living room-the front porch is very nice to have. Large yard and swimming area. We will go again next year if all works out.

Perfect location. Mike was very kind and helpful! Will definitely return!

Wonderful location with covered boat slip. We ended up with two extra grand kids but still had enough room. Cabin is older but in very good shape and it is very obvious that the owner stays on top of all maintanence. If you have a boat, this is a perfect location as you can travel for hours and never see the same thing twice. We had a blast and some success fishing. Now that I know the area, we will do better on the fishing next time. You can also experience some of the best of Michigan with just a short drive. We were able to visit a number of things that were less than an hour away. Wonderful trip!! Hope to return next year.!!

Grass River Natural Area
Car: recommended

The property is in a scenic area on a chain-of-lakes 67 miles long. Clam Lake runs into Torch Lake which National Geographic named the 3rd most beautiful lake in the world! Clam Lake also runs into the Grass River Nature Preserve - a beautiful preserve including the river and a large protected section of land which fronts on the river and has great walking trails! The preserve has an education center and offers terrific nature programs for all ages. It is handicap accessible.

The area is full of old growth trees which give you a sense of peace and tranquility. The trees are beautiful all year but in each season the landscape changes into fall colors, winter snow, spring wildflowers, and summer shade. The cabin's location is also surprisingly near sensational golf and ski resorts, gambling casinos with headliner entertainment, the small towns of Bellaire and Alden, the nearby cities of Traverse, Charlevoix, Petoskey, Harbor Springs. There are shops filled with one-of-a-kind pieces and ready for you from the budget shopper on up! Dining in the area is terrific: lots of great restaurants from ice cream parlors to 4 star gourmet cuisine. Every visitor will be very happy they came. Something wonderful for the young and not so young, casual or intense fitness, and land-lubber or water enthusiast. Families return year after year, generation after generation to this rare and beautiful area.
