About Shelly Kesh

We currently live in Waterford, MI without two kids and two dogs. When our kids got super busy with sports we decided to share our home with others and it's been a great experience. Over the years we've been lucky to have people who have come back year after year. Several have fallen in love with the area and purchased places of their own.

Shelly Kesh purchased this house in 1997

Why Shelly Kesh chose Northern Michigan

We may be biased, but we feel like we have the best spot on the lake! Our home sits across from a nature preserve and it's on the widest part of the lake so looking out from the house you really get that up north, quiet feeling, even though you're never more than a short boat ride to Torch Lake where all the action is. The house itself has large windows and door walls and an all glass sunroom with gorgeous views of the lake. There's a huge deck very close to the waters edge and the way the house is situated you're not looking at the neighbors.

What makes this house unique

Great spot for biking, jogging, long walks. Close to Bellaire for shopping and restaurants. Visit Shorts Brewery and Lulus!

As Advertised, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The other reviewers are on point in the descriptions. Owners description and photos are 100% accurate. We had a group of 4 adults and we had a great time at the house. Plenty of outdoor seating for meals or bonfires. We have been to Clam Lake several times and as always we loved it. The owner was very responsive, friendly and easy to deal with. The checkout procedures were basic and easy. Would definately rent again. Thanks!

Nice comfortable cottage.

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and comfortable. House is near the east end of Clam lake so it is at the quieter end, which I liked. We had two small familes with 3 young kids total and the house worked well for us.

It would be 5 stars if the dock was better. I wasnt very confident in the dock, so we ended anchoring our boat in the water rather than tying to the dock. This made using the boat a bit more difficult but we made it work.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are upgrading the dock for the 2017 season.

Awesome remodeled cottage with quick access to Torch Lake

  • 5 of 5

Shelly was incredibly nice, and did a wonderful job getting us set up. The cottage is very nice, and can sleep 8-10 comfortably. We loved being on Clam Lake, as it is not nearly as busy as Torch Lake, but still within a 15 min boat ride of Torch if you want to venture out that way. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described; spending the week here was very enjoyable and being on the lake was great. Found our way into town to enjoy the little shops and restaurants and was close enough to Traverse City to enjoy a day trip. We would recommend this to anyone wanting to enjoy peace and relaxation.

Very nice home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Perfect location to wake up and walk onto the porch for the sunrise and just a short boat ride to Torch Lake. Would defiantly recommend this house to others and come again!

Northern Michigan waterfront at it's best. Peaceful, quiet location yet still close to shopping, golf and many other activities. Newer home with 2 story ceiling in great room, lake views from kitchen, sun room, great room and upstairs sleeping loft. Updated decor. Laundry room. Kitchen has all appliances, fully equipped. Just 5 minutes from spectacular Torch Lake, visit the famous Dockside Restaurant for casual dining. Turtle Creek Casino is 30 minutes drive. 40 minutes to Charlevoix and 40 minutes to Traverse City.
