Intermediate Lake has been a home away from home for my family since 1983, and the Bellaire area for my father's family since the 60's. I grew up staying at Holiday Shores resort on Intermediate Lake for a week every August. We ventured away for several years staying on several other lakes throughout Northern Michigan, but our hearts were always at Intermediate Lake and we longed to go back. We finally returned to Intermediate Lake four years ago staying in a couple of other lake homes, but I would have to say this was all around my favorite spot. We had such a great time in this beautiful lake house. The layout is so open and airy with windows lining the entire front giving views of the lake from every angle. The house is decorated so nicely with pretty comfy furniture and an amazing dining room table. We loved having the fully finished walkout basement for added hang out space and the second refrigerator downstairs was perfect while we were down by the water. The outdoor furniture is very nice and comfortable. We were very impressed with how well everything is kept. We rented a pontoon for a couple of days allowing us to get out and enjoy the beauty of the entire lake and go to the sandbar for some great swimming. We loved taking the kayaks and paddle boat out at dust and dawn while the lake was calm and glassy. So peaceful. We found getting into the water from the shore pretty tricky with all the large rocks but the neighbor Tom was very nice in letting us use his frontage. Stairs with a railing off the dock or the shoreline would be ideal, especially for older people if the rocks are necessary to prevent erosion. But with that being said, in all of our years we have never stayed in a more friendly community. All of the neighbors are so amazing and inviting. Jerry, even invited us over to his "man cave" boat house to watch the game, etc. What a nice guy! Our daily walks were met with smiling faces and hellos. The "Secret Garden" at the bend in the road was so cute and fun to walk through. And the people of Central Lake itself are all so nice. We felt like a part of the community from the moment we pulled in the driveway. I would highly recommend visiting the Blue Pelican in Central Lake during your stay here. The outdoor tiki bar is so fun with live music and great service. This was our first family vacation without my dad. And we could not have asked for a better place. He would have love it. Thank you for a great stay.
Our family of 6 kids and 5 adults had a wonderful time in this cottage in June, 2014. The kids loved the water and the water toys (and the grawdads). We enjoyed hours around the fire and searching for fireflies at night. Bellaire and Central Lake had many interesting places to visit. The kids loved Bachmans in Central Lake and the Bellaire Dairy Twist. The cottage was lovely and well-equipped.
Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family. We all had a great time and were sad to leave. We very much enjoyed your lake, paddle boat, and kayaks. The home was clean and very comfortable and we also enjoyed getting to know the neighbor Pat, and playing with her dogs. Would recommend this rental highly and hope we can come back some day. Thank you!
