About Dale Snook

I Grew up in Rochester Michigan moved up north to Antrim county in 1982 , I totally fell in love with this whole area , Torch Lake, Lake Michigan, Golf Boating, Flying all of the four great seasons we have up here, and love to share with others that can enjoy the same great feelings that northern Michigan bring to the sole.

Dale Snook purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Dale Snook chose Bellaire

I have always had a passion for real log homes, It is a dream home for many, I have had a few log homes but this one is the best, high on a hill very private paved dead end rd. Just outside of the town of Bellaire and very close to all the Lakes in the Area like Torch and Clam lake. The hunting and hiking on this rolling wooded land is the best.

What makes this lodge unique

This Home has a very warm Cozy feeling, kinda like a Norman Rockwell painting, Fully hand crafted 12 to 15 inch Red Pine Logs , A large Real Stone Fire Place, A view of the valley with no other homes in site. Peaceful in every way.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We went as a family ( 10 ppl ) looking for a weekend getaway - our time at Dale's "Overlook Log Home" was an absolute fantastic time. Being a large group we needed lots of sleeping arrangments - Overlook has lots of sleeping spaces with good beds and bedding. We absolutley loved the setting, nestled up on a hill on the edge of bush with lots of rolling hills the kids tobogganed down. Beautiful and peaceful. We snuck down and got some nice skiing in at Shanty Hill just a few minutes downt the road which was also really enjoyable. Overall we had fantastic time the kitchen was well stocked and the wood burning fireplace always adds to the atmosphere. Not to mention the various mounts throughout the home give it a real cabin feel. Dale, thanks for allowing us to use your home! Fully intend to head back in the furture. God bless, Hilco Tamminga (Ontario)

Warm And Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This Beautiful Log Cabin was the most beautiful home that we have stayed in. The Country Setting was just what we needed quiet and peaceful. No Car Noise, No Barking Dogs, No Neighbors, just a few Deer roaming the fields for us to enjoy watching. The location was perfect just a few miles from town and the local resorts for golfing and the autumn colors were beautiful, and great restaurants. We will recommend this cabin to all our friends and relatives if they are looking for a warm, inviting, clean cabin in Northern Michigan.

It's a dream house!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this is a wonderful house, the house of my dreams! Perfect space arrangement from basement to the loft, I love it! When it comes to property, nicely secluded and surrounded by the trees. I stayed there with my family for three nights. One day, we visited wonderful Torch Lake, which is about 20 minutes away from the property, so it's a perfect location to stay if You plan to visit the lake and all other surrounding lakes. Most of the time, we spent at the property, enjoying beautiful view of the forest, sitting at the porch and grilling, and sitting at the fire pit every night. Property owner is a super cool man, good communication, no problems at all. Thank You! Hope to visit this place again!

Amazing House & Property

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great, large cabin for family get togethers. It is fully stocked with everything you’d need, so you’ll never have to leave the property. If you do, it’s a super convenient location to Bellaire, Torch Lake, and everything else in the area. Highly recommended!!

Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place sleeps seven comfortably! We had a group of 7 adults who went up north on a fishing trip to fish the different lakes in the area. After a long day out on the lake we cooked dinner in a kitchen that had everything we needed. Then we would relax and tell stories on the front before calling it a night. After we got there Dale was gracious enough to check with us to make sure we had everything we needed. We were all impressed with the cabin. Definitely would stay here again. Thanks Dale.
