BJs Retreat

3 night minimum stay

BJ's RETREAT - 2 Bedrooms, 1 bath.  This home sleeps 8-9, which includes the unfinished bunk house. Sitting on the east side of Torch Lake, just a couple miles north of Alden.  This cottage is peaceful and offers a large yard featuring a fire pit for enjoying your s'mores, views of the lake and beautiful sunsets.  Relax while talking about what a great day you had or making plans for the next day's fun.  The cottage does sit back from the water a ways.  Water access is about 300-400 feet south of the house. (You cannot see the water access from the cottage.) There is a mooring anchor to tie up a boat which also cannot be seen from the house.  Don't have a boat, no problem. There are several marinas in the area that rent a variety of watercraft and we are happy to provide you with information and phone numbers for these.  The fact that this cottage is situated between the towns of Alden and Bellaire gives you easy access to both.  In Alden, you can grab an ice cream cone, visit some of the quaint shops, hike at Coy Mountain Preserve, wine taste at Vista Ridge Winery, grab some muffins for breakfast at the Muffin Tin or have breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Torch Lake Beer Company.  In Bellaire, there are also some neat shops, a movie theatre, Glacial Hills Natural Area for Mountain Biking and many options for dining.  Bellaire is also the original location of Short's Brewery, an award-winning Craft Brewery.  Enjoy a craft beer with your meal.  The food is as good as the beer.  Along these same lines, you are able to visit Bee Well Meadery and do some tasting or Mammoth Distillery for a taste of locally made liquor.  The house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath.  There is a separate unfinished bunk house, with sleeping for the youngsters with 2 sets of twin bunk beds.
A reasonable way to stay. It offers you a large open back yard that runs along the water and you have your own water frontage just a short walk from the house.  
With owner's approval, they may allow 1 dog (50lbs or less). If you are bringing a pet, they are to be crated if you are not in the home with them.
We do require that our renters be at least 25 years of age. 
Sorry no air conditioner. NO SMOKING
