Pets are $10/day per dog. Neighbors are a mixture of vacationers and year-round residents and rarely heard or seen. You're down a curving driveway from the village road so the "traffic" is occasional passing cars and occasional passing fishing boats (ice fishing in winter!) or, weather permitting, passing pontoons. The village of Central Lake is adorable. Minutes away, visit Bellaire's restaurants, cafes, a spectacular brewpub, Shanty Creek's championship golf courses (and ski slopes); indoor putt-putt, and a movie theatre. Delight in a fall stay in our supremely well-insulated home-away-from-home. Bike, drive or meander along winding country roads. Pick apples. Watch the colors turn. Fish for bass, pike, perch, walleye and more. Rent a pontoon or motor boat right down the road or bring your own. Stroll down the road to a lakeside playground or to grab a bite in town. At night, roast marshmallows on a campfire by the lake. In the winter, go cross-country skiing or downhill, tubing, snowmobiling, or hiking. Sled right down from the back door to the lake or climb on the frozen waves of Grand Traverse Bay a few miles away. Depending on the season, go hot air ballooning, tearing down a zip-line, fruit picking or hitting yard sales. Visit charming shops and restaurants. In the spring and summer, relish your own peaceful, quiet lake right outside your door. Doze in the hammock or on the tree swing, play in the sand, fish, swim, or appreciate it from indoors. Drive just ten minutes to Lake Michigan and Torch Lake--stroll along the sandy beach, swim and sunbathe. Pick Morel mushrooms, listen to the birds and enjoy the opening flowers and trees. We have a file box literally stuffed with articles, brochures, maps, a 30-plus page welcome letter, and still more resources. Come play.

Drop your fishing line right off the dock and reel in a huge bass. Swim in the crystal clear water of the sandy-bottomed lakefront. Boat, kayak or just enjoy the serene beauty of the lake as the ever-changing light of the day glistens off its surface. On a cool Michigan evening, roast a few marshmallows and share a few stories around the campfire or curl up inside with a good book by the fireplace.

            Welcome to Sweetwater Shores - Newly Remodeled in 2013, for a Four Season Getaway! Enjoy the "Secret Season" - beautiful weather for hiking, enjoying the fall colors, close to the winter sports of Shanty Creek, nearby ice fishing. Or.....just enjoy a romantic weekend of snuggling by the fire...... Relax and enjoy all of the water activities right outside this classic up-north cottage. Imagine sitting on the deck with your morning coffee watching the parade of visiting wildlife - ducks, geese, swans, loons, maybe even an otter. Drop your fishing line right off the dock and reel in a huge bass. Swim in the crystal clear water of the sandy-bottomed lakefront. Boat, kayak or just enjoy the serene beauty of the lake as the ever-changing light of the day glistens off its surface. On a cool Michigan evening, roast a few marshmallows and share a few stories around the campfire or curl up inside with a good book by the fireplace. Bring your own boat to explore the Upper Chain of Lakes, and dock it off the deep water dock or use our 10-person pontoon boat as part of the deluxe rental package. It's easy to launch your kayaks from the sandy beach and explore the waterfront in a more 'up close and personal' way. This secluded cottage is located just a short two block walk from the restaurants and shops of Historic Central Lake. We provide bed linens and towels and a fully equipped kitchen, along with a pack 'n' play, and a fisher price booster chair, so you have less to worry about. There is plenty of sleeping room - 2 bedrooms, a pull out sofa, a futon directly facing the lake, and a loft with 2 twin beds for older children or teens. Click here for pictures. Pack your bags - an idyllic lake cottage vacation is waiting for you. This property is minutes from world renowned Torch Lake in Alden and a 10 minute drive to Lake Michigan (Barnes Park), located in Central Lake. It's just north of up and coming Bellaire: home of Shorts Brewery! Other nearby attractions include Shanty Creek and Schuss Mountain (10 minutes), Charlevoix (30 minutes), Traverse City (40 minutes) and Boyne Mountain (30 minutes) not to mention many championship golf courses: The Chief, The Legend and A-ga-ming.

                    Are you feeling stressed with your life; are your children driving you batty; do you need a bit of a time-out from your significant other; do you want a quiet place to read, paint, write, think, or just be; do you and your significant other need a romantic getaway? If you answered yes to any of the above, then our cottage is the perfect place for you. Nestled amongst 10 acres of forest, the cottage sits on the shores of beautiful, picturesque Lake Michigan. It is small and quaint, simply and beautifully furnished. It has one bedroom and a fold out couch in the living room. It can sleep up to 4 people. The bathroom is fairly large with a walk in shower. Linens and beach towels are provided. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc. Everything you need to cook your favorite meals. The property is located within walking distance of Torch Lake Nature Preserve which contains many miles of trails. Walk, jog, whatever you like, you can do this on the road, on wooded trails or along the miles and miles of shore on Lake Michigan. The cottage is located off of highway 31, a short distance (about a 30 minute drive) north of Traverse City. Just north of the cottage are the towns of Charlevoix (about 17 miles) and Petosky (about 30 miles). Also close to Harbor Springs, Elk Rapids, Macinac City and Island and numerous other small towns in the Northern Michigan area. Nightlife can be around a bonfire and s'mores on the beach overlooking the beautiful sunsets, or it can be dinning, gambling, or clubbing in the nearby casinos. You choose the pace. If you have a boat and want to bring that up with you, close to the cottage, there are two public boat accesses. One to Lake Michigan, and one to Torch Lake. Torch Lake is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and if you have not seen it, you should. If you don't have a boat, you can spend the day at the public park playing basketball, having a picnic, and swimming in the clear waters of Torch Lake. All within walking distance of the cottage. The winter is also a perfect time to be at the cottage. The snow is beautiful and there is nothing like a stroll through the forest trails as the snow gently falls around you engulfing you in a world of peace, quiet and a white wonderland. In fact, winter is one of our favorite times to be at the cottage. We rent the cottage out only once per month, so book your stay early.
