At the very end of a secluded private road, nestled in the trees amidst ten wooded acres sits 'Our Place'. The home is meticulously maintained and decorated, with panoramic views of Elk Lake from almost every room. The main level contains an enormous master bedroom with King bed and a large bath with walk-in/roll in shower. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and has a breakfast bar seating three. The dining area seats 10 and looks out to the lake at sunset. There is a screened porch with easy chairs for reading and a twin bed for napping. A gas Weber grill is available for use. The powder room and extra large laundry room are located next to the kitchen. The main level has a library stocked with hundreds of books for rainy day reading, and a twin bed. There is a hot tub at the secluded end of the wrap-around deck.
The lower level has three bedrooms, a large family entertainment area, a full bath, and walks out to the yard and steps down to the dock. One bedroom has 4 twin beds, one room has a queen size bed, and one has 2 twin beds, a youth bed and a crib.
For at-home entertainment, there are the usual multimedia devices as well as old-fashioned board games. Enjoy reading a good book beside the wood-burning fireplace, along with a bottle of wine from one of the many nearby wineries open throughout the year. During winter, cross-country ski or snowmobile right out the front door, or drive 15 minutes to Bellaire's Shanty Creek Ski Resort for downhill skiing. Boyne and Nub's Nob are approximately 45 minutes away.
Everything here is top-of-the line!
We are lower Michigan residents ('Flatlanders', as Northern Michigan folks call us). This is our dream house, purchased as a legacy for our children and grandchildren. You'll be completely enchanted, as we were the first time we saw it!
This property is unique in that it has both acres of woods and more than three hundred feet of private lakefront. There is virtually no 'traffic' on the lake, and being at the end of a private road provides seclusion. If you want an oasis of calm in a secluded setting but near great restaurants and entertainment, this is your kind of place.
From the moment you enter the house, you are greeted with a panoramic view of aquamarine Elk Lake; later, at sunset, the view becomes a prism of pinks, blues and violets.
This is a luxury property, located on the southeastern shore of Elk Lake, just west of Torch Lake, between the towns of Kewadin and Alden. Elk Lake feeds into Torch via the Torch River.

It also has a wonderful marina, a public beach, a movie theater and a highly rated restaurant, Siren Hall, serving fresh fish caught the very same day in Lake Michigan. The nearby town of Bellaire offers 20 local craft brews at Shorts Brewing Company. Approximately 15 minutes away is the Grand Traverse Resort's top-rated golf course and day spa. Downtown Traverse City boasts some of the finest dining in the state as well as the famous film festival in late July.
