Overview

Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

***** All weeks for summer of 2016 have been booked. We will start working on 2017 reservations in October. Feel free to reach out to be put on our list for 2017. *****

This 3-bedroom/3-bathroom spacious all-season home on scenic all-sports Lake Bellaire is waiting for you!

Make this beautiful home your headquarters for an amazing getaway. With a large master suite, second king bedroom, a bunk room with a queen bed, and three bathrooms this home is ideal for extended family gatherings or several couples. The gourmet kitchen is well stocked with the tools for preparing your favorite meals to enjoy in the dining room or outside on the spacious patio facing the lake.

This home and the surrounding grounds are designed to provide maximum enjoyment of the beautiful lake. Enjoy 100 feet of sandy shoreline with a beach area for small children to build sand castles and hard-packed lake bottom for older kids, and adventurous adults, to splash in the clear water. Swimmers in this section of the lake can venture 100 feet or more before the water is deeper than three feet. If you’re looking for a little break from all the action on the lake, you’ll find plenty of room on the 1.5-acre lawn to quietly escape into a novel under a shady tree or grab a nap in the hammock.

If you’re an early riser, you’ll likely find yourself enjoying your first cup of coffee on the patio or down on the dock watching the amazing sunrise over the lake and listening to the loons first calls of the morning. In the evenings, you can enjoy a cozy campfire while the stars put on a show in the sky.

The nearly 140-foot dock provides easy access to your boat and is the perfect starting point for exploring the sites of Lake Bellaire or connecting to other lakes within the chain such as Clam Lake, Torch Lake or the Grass River. You can float to Dockside for dinner or cruise into Bellaire for lunch at Short’s Brewery. For those without a boat, it’s a quick drive to either location or we can help you reserve a boat.

You’ll find the things you need to feel right at home including beach chairs, a gas grill, and all great vacations require a great night’s sleep with that in mind; in 2014, all beds were outfitted with high-quality mattresses. All you need to remember are your beach towels and your sunscreen!

Rates are listed below. For rentals during non-peak times, a three-day minimum is available, please contact me if interested in a non-peak rental.

About George Fogel

After four years of vacationing on Lake Bellaire, we wanted our own slice of this wonderful area, so we bought this house and wanted to share it. We made a number of upgrades to the house and continue to refine the experience to make your stay unforgettable!

George Fogel purchased this cottage in 2013

Why George Fogel chose Northern Michigan

Having spent time on the Lake, we wanted someplace with plenty of room for our family, great views of the lake and surroundings and a great beach/waterfront area. We absolutely love it! The days are beautiful on the lake and the nights have dark skies with brilliant stars that you can only see far away from a big city.

What makes this cottage unique

If you want to relax and get away, there is no other place like it!

Beautiful piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at this home. The owners have thought of everything. The home is elegant and comfortable in every way, and extremely clean. The windows and views are spectacular, and the lakeshore is absolutely beautiful. We have rented in this area many times and this place easily set a new standard. We also enjoyed being close to Bellaire including our favorite spot, the Moka, and only a short drive to our favorite restaurant in Central Lake, The Blue Pelican.

The owner is a super guy and full of great information about the location and the area. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful home and great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful home on lake Bellaire. The home is beautiful, clean and well maintained. It has large windows that look out on lake Bellaire - We woke up every morning to a beautiful sunrise over the lake! The home was well stocked with towels, sheets, etc and the kitchen had anything you would need to cook a meal or grill out.

We used the fire pit every night to make s'mores and relax -George had even stocked firewood for the fire pit, which was very thoughtful.

The lake is beautiful and great for tubing, skiing, wake boarding, kayaking or swimming.

George was excellent to work with. He was in touch with us through our stay and very responsive and thoughtful. We had a wonderful week and we hope to return next summer.

I would highly recommend this home for a relaxing and fun vacation at lake Bellaire.

Perfect vacation on a perfect property

  • 5 of 5

I don't have much to add to the previous review but I will try. We just checked out yesterday from this gorgeous home.... the pictures do not do this place justice. Everything from the location to the views to the boat access, gourmet kitchen and to die for comfy beds exceeded my expectations. The owner is super easy to deal with and has great communication. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

Great property and great house!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes in Northern Michigan for years - this house is one of the best kept homes we've rented. The kitchen is clean with an open floor plan and has new appliances and stemware/cutlery. All the furniture seems new throughout the house, as do the bedroom and bathroom linens. The house is stocked with the necessities and then some, making it an easy stay.

The property itself sits on one of the greatest lakes in the state! The water is clear with hard sand. The yard between the house and the lake is perfect for family games or simply relaxing by the water's edge. There is an outdoor table for dining and a stone patio with a chiminea perfect for roasting marshmellows.

The owner was very easy to work with. He responded to emails promptly with questions leading up to our stay. Upon arrival, there was coffee for the first morning and a bottle of wine on the counter for us. He printed the welcome document and had 2 keys sitting on the counter. There was never an issue while we stayed, but if there had been, we had all the information about what to do.

We will definitely be back!
