Gary purchased this chalet in 2005
I desingned and built this hosue for my famliy get away.
Very Comfortale and Private Setting
Secluded and Quiet
Our stay was nothing short of spectacular. You have a beautiful home (we all LOVED the glassed wall and cathedral ceilings). The fire warmed up the main space beautifully and efficiently; we appreciated that although your home felt spacious, it was cozy enough that noone was ever out of earshot; the natural light the home allowed for made mornings easy and inviting; the surround sound was indeed amazing and made our movie viewing feel like a theater experience; and the area around the home is quiet and most definitely beautiful (especially after a fresh fall of snow). And the skiing--wow! What a thrill--but that's the last time I go down a slope titled "Surprise"! Surprise indeed it was and our excursion to Schuss made for some hilarious stories at dinner.
A Great house with a fantastic view. A perfect getaway for us to go skiing at Shanty Creek over the weekend.
The twisty turney single wide lane make it a little nerve racking to get back to the house even in moderate snow conditions, but once your there, the secluded relaxation really takes over.
When not on the slopes, it's a quick drive into Bellaire itself. Definitely grab a meal and a beer at Shorts!
A Fantastic weekend of Skiing, Euchre, Craft Brews, and Relaxation.
Thanks again Gary for having us, we hope to rent this property again, either next winter or to check out some of the summer scenery.
The owner was available to contact personally to help me book this property. The cabin was awesome, well exceeded my expectations. The horse stable next door was really cool. The owner was gracious in my parties noise level and waking up to horses below your deck was a welcomed refresh from city life. The cabin couldn't be better located if you're looking to boat on Torch Lake or the others that are even closer, Clam Lake, etc. and downtown Bellaire is very charming. Bonfire pit, grill, garage, super large deck with awesome views, nice clean bathrooms and kitchen...this place couldn't be better suited for any party - fam, friends, more the merrier.
Stayed for 5 days while we were sailing in a regatta on Torch Lake. Very convenient location both to TLYCC and to Shanty Creek. The house was comfortable and we cooked several meals there rather than having to eat out all the time. I would reiterate what several others have said, you will need 4 wheel drive in the winter. The house had great views from the deck and was furnished comfortability. My only down side would be if you can't deal with hard mattresses, don't choose the back bedroom.
This place is ideal for an up north getaway. Easy to access during summer months, short drives to golf and the town. The house itself is perfect. The deck has a great view over hills and woods and the periodic whinnie of a horse adds to the ambiance when relaxing on the dock. Would rent again in a heartbeat.
We had a great time at this house. Nice kitchen setup to prepare meals and enjoy association in a n open setting. Would definately stay again.
There was 5 of us and we loved the view, the wild turkeys, the horse farm and riders. The house has great views, comfortable beds, great decor, was very clean. We had a James Bond marathon each night after coming home from playing golf or tourist in the greater northern MI. Great TV and surround sound. We had a honda pilot and a toyota prius, since was summertime we both could make it up the drive and around the house with no problem. If have more vehicles or don't want to drive on the sandy driveway you can park at the end of the blacktop and walk in. I can see in the winter you would need a 4wd or all wheel drive if there is snow. Gary is wonderful to work with and in his contract he mentions the high mineral content in the water. Beware: take your own drinking water for drinking, making coffee etc, the sulpher and iron content is high in the water. I would have given this place 5 stars but I can't recommend using the clothes washer since the minerals will stain your clothes, one of our friends find out the hard way, you will notice it on the towels. There is a laundry mat across from Glen's Market. We recommend Short's Brewery, Toonies, The smokehouse and Moka's in town. Over on Torch Lake is Docksides, typical bar type food but neat place to seat outside. The area is mainly golf, mountain biking, hiking and boating/kayaking in the summer. If get a chance travel a short distance to visit Traverse City and Charlevoix. If want to find petoskey rocks go to Fisherman Island State Park just south of Charlevoix.
