Property Details

Updated: May 17, 2015
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Vintage Log Cabin on Torch Lake, located on the east side for perfect sunsets. Just minutes away from dozens of fine golf courses, and five minutes away from Bellaire, Michigan, home to world-class dining at Lulu's Restaurant, and Shorts Micro Brewery. It has a complete kitchen, with dishes and silverware, pots and pans. A total of eight cottages share 262 feet of frontage on Torch Lake, judged the third most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic Magazine. This cottage has an uninterrupted view of the lake, but it sits back a couple hundred feet from the lake. It has the most privacy of the three cottages that I own.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to spend some relaxing time without all the concerns of city life. The property is gorgeous and has all the amenities we needed. We never left! The sunsets are the most beautiful we've seen. Kayaking is great in the early morning or early evening. Later it gets a bit rough. I recommend this for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway or anyone looking for a bit more fun. Rent a boat and head over to the big party sand bar on Torch Lake for a livelier weekend.

Traverse City is about a half hour away, with world-class shopping and dining. It is home to the The Cherry Festival, The Traverse City Film Festival, huge Fourth of July Celebrations, numerous Wine Country events, etc; there is always something happening in T.C. Wine tasting is available at dozens of fine wineries on the two peninsulas, Old Mission and

Leelanau. Long known for great white wines, our local vintners are now creating world-class Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. It's like Napa but with even better scenery. Petosky is about an hour away, Charlevoix is about 45 minutes, both are great towns to spend the day, and to enjoy the nightlife. Bellaire and Alden are just a few minutes away and offer nice

shopping and a quaint small town atmosphere. Incredible 5-star dining is right in Bellaire at Lulu's, and the nationally famous Rowe Inn is about 45 minutes away in Ellsworth. There are casinos in T.C. and Petosky, and you are literally surrounded by great golf courses. Just a mile up the road at the Clam River you can put in your boat or rent a boat or jetski and

explore the chain of lakes, which goes all the way to Lake Bellaire. There is a mooring at the resort to moor your boat, just don't leave it in overnight, this is a big lake and it can whip up some weather fast.

  • This cottage has three bedrooms, each with a double bed, plus a sofa bed in the living room, so it sleeps a maximum of 8. It has a full kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, oven, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, silverware, pots, pans, etc. The beds come with fresh linens, and bath and kitchen towels are supplied. If you plan to use the sofa bed, bring a sleeping bag or your own linens. There is a small screened porch on the lake side of the cottage. There is a large Weber kettle grill, and a picnic table for outdoor dining. The shoreline has a boulder retaining wall, but there is a sandy access area for the kids. There are two docks, both are available to everyone, and there is a nice swim raft. The docks are aluminum and vinyl, so no splinters and they stay nice and cool to the touch. There is a large deck that sits right at the lake, and plenty of furniture to sit around and watch the sunsets.
