Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Bellaire - Treehouse Chalet

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Comfortable, spacious cabin in the trees, short walk to beautiful Torch Lake. Close to town Short's Brewing and Shanty Creek. Great for family summer vacation or cozy ski weekends.

This three bedroom home sits in the middle of a small private lane on over an acre of trees on a hill above East Torch Lake just minutes from the town of Bellaire.

We have cozy bedrooms (with awesome mattresses), 2 full bathrooms and a fully appointed kitchen with everything you could need. We have decorated in a comfortable upscale rustic style.

The backyard has a deck and a fire pit for your relaxation and even has an actual treehouse where you can savor a cigar and cocktail after a long day enjoying the area.

Three Public Access points to Torch Lake all 1/2 - 3 miles away. Nice little sandy beach area with a picnic table is 1 mile South. You can drive in and put in a kayak or paddle board (no boat launch) at this access at Pinnell Rd and E. Torch Lake Drive. The closest public access, a very short walk away just across the street at the end of our lane, also allows auto access but there is only a grass area and a rock shoreline, no sand. You can swim and kayak here as well. To launch a boat, drive a couple of miles south to Butch's Marine and Tackle (near Dockside), or go to the North end of the lake to find the best and largest public access point. There is a much larger area of shallow water with sandy beach, plenty of parking and the boat ramp to launch your boat.

About Property Manager/Owner

I am a native of Michigan. Grew up in Lansing and moved to Northern California in High School. Once I got married, my family and I started making annual trips to Northern Michigan where my Step father's family has had family cottages on Torch Lake for several generations. Still working our tails off in California most of the year but we love to spend our leisure Up North in Michigan.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Northern Michigan

We have been coming to Torch Lake with our family for nearly 30 years. Each year my husband, kids and I meet with my brothers, their families and my parents to enjoy our heritage cottages on the lake. We have long since found the need for another house the accommodate our growing extended family. This past summer we were lucky enough to be able to purchase Treehouse. It is our vacation home for now, but we look forward to spending more time in Northern Michigan once we retire.

What makes this chalet unique

This house is just steps away from the lake. It is situated on a very private lane with only 6 other homes. You are nestled in the trees and with your own private treehouse outside and a gorgeous rock fireplace inside. It feels remote but it is very easy access to downtown Bellaire (Short's Brewery), Torch Lake, Dockside Marina. Or take a hike through the country lanes and farmland a stone's throw away.

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome stay at the Treehouse.

Plenty of room, great location, I had my boat and was able to launch at

Butch's not far from the house, it was also a good location to explore the

region, we went to mackinac, Traverse City, the Leelanau peninsula, Sleeping

bear Dunes, one week was just not enough time, we will be back!

The owner somehow responds almost immediately to email

Treehouse is a short walk to Torch Lake public access across E. Torch Lake Drive. We do NOT have private lake access nor a view of the lake from the house. There are a number of access points to the lake and all are a short drive to launch water craft.

Lake Bellaire is also very close and has public areas suitable for children and family water activities.
