|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
This cute and clean '1940s' era cottage is much the way you would have found it mid-century: no TV, no phone, lots of clean air and water, nesting loons, and the good company you've traveled with. The cottage has one bedroom with a double bed, another with two singles, and a futon in the main living area. This Thayer Lake beachfront cottage shares 150 feet of prime frontage with its sister cottage, 'Oak' (VRBO listing 57002). The cottage sits 400 feet back off the road. Thayer Lake is a no-wake lake perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and relaxed enjoyment of nature. There are both sunny and shady areas along the waterfront and a lakeside fire pit for making S'mores. The lake access is shallow and gradual, good for children and wading. Within one mile of the cottage are two public accesses to Torch Lake, one of Michigan's largest and certainly most beautiful sandy-bottomed lakes.
Up north near-by activities include nature trails, Torch Lake access less than one mile, fun shopping in town of Alden, Short's Brewery and Shanty Creek Golf in Bellaire. Thayer Lake is a 25-minute drive to Turtle Creek Casino. Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petoskey, and Elk Rapids are within 1 hour drive.
