CHARMING STUDIO COTTAGE ON THAYER LAKE

Alden Studio Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4 - Deck - Lake View - Bonfire Pit

Studio Cottage: one full size bed, pull out sofa bed, one bath with large walk in shower, full kitchen, fully furnished with all amenities on pristine lake front. New appliances, new carpet, private deck with gas grill over looking Thayer Lake.

100 feet of Lake Frontage on quite calm no wake lake surrounded by beautiful pines and hardwoods. World recognized Torch Lake is right across the street. Very private and quite setting. Thayer Lake is 1/2 mile from 2 marinas and the very popular Dockside restaurant on Torch Lake. Both marinas have boat ramps - Butches does not charge for their ramp. Butches has boat and pontoon rentals to cruise the Chain of Lakes. You can travel south on Torch Lake to Torch River into Skegemog Lake ending at Elk Lake where there is the quaint town of Elk Rapids and a wonderful boat friendly lake front restaurant with a great deck for outside dinning. Also you can boat north on Clam Lake to the Grass River and end up in Lake Bellaire ( great fishing lake ). The Grass River is a natural wildlife area with Swans and Loones. Truly an experience to enjoy for all.

Both Alden and Bellaire are 15 minutes away with restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy ( Bellaire ), gas stations, and many very unique shops and dinning. Thayer Lake is 20 minutes from Shanty Creek Ski and Golf Resort. There are several great golf courses a short distance away. Taverse City is a 35 minute drive and Lake Michigan Beaches, Charlevoix is a 30 minute drive, and Petoskey is 1 hour away. Both are very beautiful cities on Lake Michigan and the drive is incredible. Mackinaw Island is also a popular destination and is a 1.5 hours drive and a really neat boat ride to the island - a unique day trip for sure.

In winter times there are many outdoor sport activities

which include: Downhill skiing, Cross county skiing, Snowmobiling, Snowboarding, etc. Thayer Lake is a great fishing lake. We supply a Rowboat and two Kayaks for your enjoyment.

This is a nonsmoking unit, however smoking is allowed outside. Dogs Allowed

Cannot say enough nice things about Russ and Michelle

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a small cabin for my son's second birthday. Our original idea was to get it somewhere up north, on a lake, and close by to bigger attractions (such as Traverse City.) When we came across this studio it was everything we were looking for!

I called Michelle a few days before we went up there. She is so, so friendly, and we talked for a good 30 minutes just like she has known me forever. She gave me ideas on where to go and what to do. I told her that we were coming for my son's birthday, and she took it upon herself to get him cupcakes and candles. (Thank you SO much Michelle!)

The studio is stocked with everything from water, condiments, paper plates, silverware, cleaning supplies and bug spray; you know, the essentials that no body wants to waste vacation money on. It even came with my personal favorite: wine! There's also a fire pit, grill, kayaks, a dock and a boat that you are free to use.

Like I stated before, we were looking for something secluded but close to larger towns to go visit for the day... we didn't even make it outside of Bellair/Alden because there were so many neat shops, restaurants, and things to do for my family. Torch Lake is literally across the street, and it is one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen.

We did so much in those two little towns we are planning to come back and keep venturing a little further :)

Russ & Michelle- thank you for a vacation we will NEVER forget. We will see you again!

Awesome Studio Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The pictures describe what a terrific place this is. The owners have created the perfect place. The cottage is extremely well kept. The water is well water, but there is a reverse osmosis system so it was good drinking. They were very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. They directed us to Bellaire for meals near Thayer Lake. The cottage was supplied with some food staples and sheets and towels were provided. They did direct us to the local grocery store and others places we might like to see or visit. Myself and two of my friends came to do a bike ride in the area and stayed to relax after. We did just that. During our stay we enjoyed the lake with kayaks provided. I would recommend this cottage to any of my friends.

Russ and Michelle were very accommodating. There was nothing lacking and if there had been they were more than willing to provide it. They were very knowledgeable to the area attractions, even providing a map for us. We both have highly stressful jobs so it was nice to get away and relax.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I work ALOT and needed a quick and affordable getaway for the weekend. This great little studio cottage ended up being the perfect mini vacation for us. We were looking for a relaxing spot to kick back with a drink, fish, grill, and enjoy some outdoors for once...this place offered it all. If you're wanting to have a "deep relieving sigh while watching the sun set over a calm lake" moment, let Russ and Michele set you up in this great little cottage. Oh, and if you end up forgetting anything, no worries because I'm confident they thought of it for you. The place is stocked with anything you could possibly need (paper plates, cooking utensils, water bottles....I mean everything)! We will definitely be returning next year.

An excellent place to experience everything the area has to offer.

  • 4 of 5
Russ and Michele were very attentive to our needs and there place was very well stocked. The place feels private and cosy and is just far enough off the beaten path that a very quick car ride will get you over to all the activities of Torch Lake. Thayer Lake is quite a little treasure in itself and was a very relaxing place to spend the evenings enjoying the Bon fire or the stars in the night sky. The owners warm hospitality absolutely guarantees a return to this rental.

Peace and tranquility:-):-):-)

  • 4 of 5
We experienced everything we had hope for when we spent a week in this lovely studio on Thayer Lake. A week of peace , relaxation and tranquility . The owners , Michelle and Russ were very welcoming indeed and the studio well equipped and comfortable and met our every need.
A good place for lunch with a great view of Torch lake would be The Dockside Restaurant , just a couple of minutes away..
If you are looking for a restful , peaceful time , then this location is great ......
