vacation rental description

The Cottage Located on breathtakingly beautiful Torch Lake, this Non-Smoking property has been owned by the same family since the late 1800's. The cottage features natural wood interiors, two woodburning fireplaces, shelves of books, gorgeous views of the lake, coziness, and simplicity.

Equally suitable for families with young children or older couples, the cottage comfortably sleeps six people, with a Guest Cottage sleeping four more for an additional fee. We have 150 feet of lakefront, including a sandy beach, a private dock, boat hoist and mooring buoy. The lake's sandy bottom is shallow for a fair distance, making it ideal for children. The cottage sits at the end of a private road in a secluded setting thick with mature trees. Its location on the east side of the lake affords spectacular views of the setting sun, especially from the large open air deck which overlooks the lake, and the near-constant lull of water lapping at the shore. There is also a smaller private deck, complete with a hammock swing (one of several on the property), off the master suite.

Torch Lake was named the third most beautiful lake in the world by
National Geographic Magazine. The water is so clear you can see the
sandy bottom all the way out to the "drop-off." On sunny days, the
lake has ribbons of turquoise color that are reminiscent of the
Caribbean. Torch is the largest lake in Michigan (19 miles long and
about two miles wide) and is part of a chain of lakes which allows
boating from Elk Rapids to Bellaire.


The Suroundings A 15-minute stroll takes you to the small and charming village of Alden. It has one of Torch Lake's four public boat ramps, a number of restaurants, art galleries, a variety of shops, a playground, a public tennis court, and a library. Green woods and broad fields extend out from the town, offering great cycling and walking. Just 20 minutes away by car, you can find craft breweries, cafes and higher-end restaurants.

Popular Tourist Destinations such as Traverse City, Charlevoix, the
Leelanau Peninsula, and Petoskey are all within an hour's drive.
Should you choose to venture further afield, Interlochen National
Music Camp (offering excellent concerts), Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes,
Mackinac Island, or Hartwick Pines are well worth visiting.

Because the cottage is a family heirloom, we request great care and
consideration from our renters.

traveler reviews for this torch lake cottage rental

Great time on Torch Lake

Review submitted: August 25, 2014   Date of arrival: August 16, 2014

We had a great time at this place. Definitely on the rustic side but for anyone looking to experience Northern Michigan and Torch LAke this place provides a great setting in which to do so. The lakeside deck was great for relaxing and the private beach provided a great spot for the kids to enjoy the water. We have been to the parts of the lake where the shore is rocky and really enjoyed the luxury of a perfect sand bottom here. Can't beatt his location. Very close to town but also very quite and private.

Cozy fireplace and a beautiful lake, perfect!

Review submitted: August 21, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

The torch lake cottage was a great place for my family to spend a vacation on the beautiful shore of torch lake. The kids especially liked the sandy beach area where we could make s'mores and play in the crystal clear water. The listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance. The main living area is lovely & comfortable allowing for great views of the lake while relaxing by the stone fireplace. The home is charming and full of interesting antiques and tons of books and games for a rainy day. The owner is very helpful & prompt to answer questions. My family also enjoyed going to Elk Rapids, Traverse and Bellaire, all very easy to get to from the cottage. Siren Hall in Elk Rapids was probably our most favorite restaurant! Short's brewery is also very close to the cottage. Northern Michigan is beautiful and a great place to have a family vacation.

Classic cottage on a lovely lake.

Review submitted: July 20, 2014   Date of arrival: May 9, 2014

We had a great time at Torch Lake. The weather was chilly, so we spent a lot of time indoors. It's an older cabin with lots of character. Well equipped kitchen. Great lake views. Comfortable living room, and enough space for a crowd.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks for your comments, Megan... I'm glad you had a good time :-)
