Overview

Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

Studio Condo - Sleeps 4

***Please note we are still finishing up brand new construction. I will have updated photos as we progress! Everything in unit brand new from floor to ceiling and everything in between! This property sits directly on Clam Lake. You have beautiful views immediately when you open the door. The whole back wall is nothing but windows with spectacular water views. Open the windows for a very nice breeze. You can even view the Torch Lake sunset right from the sitting area. If hot summer nights are not your cup of tea then close up the windows and turn on the air conditioning.

You will find everything you need to cook a full meal. Every kitchen necessity has been thought of. If BBQ is a preference there is a charcoal grill on the grounds. All of the furniture is new. Sleeping arrangements include a brand new queen Murphy bed (looks like brown armoire) and sofa sleeper. Also, the bathroom has fresh towels and toiletries.

For the boating enthusiasts, there is public boat launch access less than 1 mile down the road. Your trailer can be kept at the access site or across the street from our condo. Dewitt Marina right across and down the water from the property rents boats daily if that is more your speed. Fourth of July Fireworks are spectacular! Set off on the South end of Torch Lake. These can also be viewed from the docks in Alden.

Be sure to take a stroll through Alden for some light shopping and a very large ice cream from Higgins General store. Alden also has a Farmer's Market every Thursday evening from 5-8. Also Bellaire is a nice quaint town as well. A must is a visit to Shorts Brewery for micro brew favorites.

Bikers and runners alike have some very hilly roads around. For a nice hilly hike or bike in the woods check out Glacial Hills trails less than 10 minutes drive. There are also nice flat roads to walk and bike along. If fishing is of interest all of these lakes have great fishing opportunities.

Fall colors are incredible and this area has spectacular golf courses as well. Winter activities including skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, snow shoe etc. are all available as well.

All in all this is a very quiet, and pleasant place to spend a vacation. The central location is ideal for many possible day trips.

Enjoy!

About Lisa

My husband Kevin and I bought this property as soon as we saw the water views. We also have a log cabin nearby so we are up North quite a bit. We have always loved Northern Michigan! Hopefully our kids will continue to enjoy Northern Michigan as they get older.

Peaceful, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We made use of dock, enjoyed access to the lakes, great hike at Glacier Hills trails, (on road to Bellaire). And enjoyed having a clean, comfy "home", with a view, to end up at the end of the day. Great flexibility of owners too.

A real delight!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in we were pleasantly surprised at how clean and cozy the condo was. The view was very nice and the décor and use of space (i.e. the hide away bed) were very nice touches. Our hosts were so accommodating and were in touch with us during our stay to ensure all are needs were met and our stay was memorable. We will definitely return and are referring others as well.

Sincerely,

Ann and Tim

Perfect get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little condo. It was great to have a dock right there and not have to trailer out boat out of the lakes every day.

Had a spectacular lightning storm our first night in, and the wall of windows was our front-row seating! We were so lucky to have premium weekend weather in early September. Spent full days on the chain of lakes and rivers.

Everything you need is here, and the place is clean-clean-clean. Was fun to share texts with Lisa (owner). Loved the Home Away emails that shared all the details we needed.

We definitely will recommend to our friends and family (already have) and hopefully can spend a weekend away there again soon.

The condo was very neat and clean and we had a great time at the lake. It was great having a boat slip. Thank you again for your hospitality everything was beyond what we expected.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable, loved the views of he lake! The Murphy bed makes great use of the porch area. Great access to a number of lakes if you bring or rent a boat. The owners were exceptionally accommodating and helpful. Enjoyed visiting Charlevoix and watching the boats there, as well as visiting a few of the area wineries, especially Brys Estates. Highly recommended!

Great Condo...just as pictured & advertised

  • 5 of 5

Was very pleased with the unit...clean and attractive...well appointed...the owners really care that the guests are pleased. Proximity to the boat slip on Clam Lake is a plus and being near all the amenities of Bellaire made it an ideal spot.
