Overview

Bellaire / Shanty Creek Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Quiet, cozy, peaceful, secluded, updated log cabin on the southeast corner of beautiful Lake Bellaire. Enjoy the sandy beach and clear waters of Lake Bellaire, or bring your boat and tour the Grass Lake Nature Preserve, via the Grass River on your way to Torch Lake, Elk Lake and more! For the golfer, Shanty Creek and championship golf is only minutes away. Ideally located only 30+ minutes from Turtle Creek Casino and Traverse City, 90 minutes to Mackinaw City.

Cabin can accommodate up to 4 adults and 4 children and is a non-smoking facility. Sorry no pets are allowed.

Rental is one of six identical cabins sharing the grounds. Boats are welcome and a boat mooring is provided with advance notice. Boat trailers are stored for free at a local marina yard approximately 3 miles away, but the boat launch is very close by.

Water depth is excellent for the little ones near shore with a sand box and toys available. Enjoy your own private fire pit for the S'mores, or join the group at the common area pit at waters edge!

About The Owner

Hello and welcome to our humble log cabin. My name is Dean and I am a professional educator who has worked 20+ years in the State of Michigan. My wife Jennifer and I have two wonderful daughters who love every chance they can to enjoy time at the cabin. However, as they grow and get busier, time at the cabin is not as available as we would like, so we decided to share our treasure and offer vacation rentals a few weeks a year.

We purchased the cabin in 2007 and spent a good portion of the summers of 2008 and 2009 remodeling. The remodel included an new kitchen, stipping the logs down to bare wood and restaining, new flooring, furniture, and a large outdoor patio. Fortunately the bathroom had been updated only a few years before we purchased. The experience was a true labor of love, (but we are in no hurry to do it again!)

The cabin itself was originally constructed in the 1950's as part of the accommodations for golfers visiting the Bellaire Golf Course (closed in 2012). Hence the name of the association the cabin is part of is called the Bellaire Golf Colony.

Located at the southeastern tip of the lake we enjoy spectacular sunsets, and peaceful privacy as the property to the south belongs to the Grass River Nature Preserve and Antrim County.

We appreciate your interest in making your vacation include time in our little paradise. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions.

Why The Owner chose Bellaire / Shanty Creek

Having lived and worked in Northern Michigan for 10 years I missed the slower pace, relaxed environment, and general beauty of the Chain of Lakes and surrounding area. I think all who visit understand and appreciate what a treasure this region is!

What makes this cabin unique

Any summertime activity you could hope to enjoy is here or nearby. From our beachfront one can literally boat all the way to Elk Rapids! It is an amazing journey if you love the water and long boat trips. The beach area in front is great for relaxing and letting the little ones enjoy the water, as depth remains 2-3 ft for the first hundred yards or more. For the fisherman one only needs to know that Lake Bellaire is, (or was :) home to a record setting Muskie caught in the Fall of 2012!

For non-water activities championship golf at one of Shanty Creeks 5 golf courses is just a few miles away. For the shopper Traverse City or Charlevoix are approximately 30-40 minutes away, with Turtle Creek Casino just 30 minutes out. Don't forget, Bellaire is home to one of the most popular brewery's in Michigan - Shorts Brewing Co.
