Torch Lake Sandbar


Bellaire Means Fresh Air

Bellaire means fresh air. And when Michiganders say they’re heading up north, this is where they’re going.

Splashing on Torch Lake’s Sandbar. Riding the single tracks of Glacial Hills. Exploring the wildlife at Grass River. Or getting a round in on one of Shanty Creek’s five chamipionship golf courses.

Just like mom always said, go outside and play.

When it’s time for you to enjoy the wide open spaces of Northern Michigan, we’ll be here to welcome you at Shanty Creek Resort.

Antrim County's Chain of Lakes watershed is 75 miles of northern Michigan’s most beautiful waterways, which includes 14 lakes and interconnecting rivers. The Chain begins in Beals Lake and flows 55 miles, ultimately into East Grand Traverse Bay.

Fishing. Boating. Water skiing. Kayaking. And a very popular sandbar. The turquoise blue waters of Antrim County’s famous Chain of Lakes is literally in Shanty Creek’s backyard.

Torch Lake gets the buzz, named among "the most beautiful lakes in the world” by National Geographic (and deservedly so), but The Chain is much more.
