Kim, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Torch River Lodge. There is a private dock, a paddle boat and a kayak for our guests to use. Guests also have both the river and the lake to explore. We'll look for you return visit.
Awesome rental company they answered our questions whatever time we had them (even 11 pm when we couldn’t figure out the lights). This is our second stay at the house and the location is perfect.
Marissa, thanks for the kudos to FVR. Helping our guests have the best possible vacation is our #1 priority. We are glad that you came back to Torch River Retreat. That all by itself makes it a great review. At Torch River Retreat you have both the river and the lake, both a kayak and a paddle boat plus good swimming. It's a vacationers dream.
This rental has pretty much all you need for lake activities if you don’t mind cleaning them before you use them. The house can definitely use some updating/maintenance, but honestly if you have good weather you may not notice these issues.-
Erin, we are happy that you enjoyed Torch River Retreat. It is unique in that the river is out the back door and Torch Lake is right out the front door. It has a private dock so you can bring your own boat if you want or use the paddle boat and kayak that comes with the cottage. You can also easily do day trips to Traverse City or Mackinac Bridge. We hope that you come back again.
The location is amazing! The house definitely has the old cottage vibe.
First off, the location of this cottage is absolutely perfect! The cottage itself was cute, but could have been amazing with a few updates. It was missing that homey feel and felt a little neglected. We had issues with the heat and trash, but the property managers were great! Responded quickly. I am definitely looking forward to going back!
Jessica, we are so happy that you found the location of Torch River Retreat to be perfect! It's a unique situation to have the river at your back door and the lake at your front door, plus one can easily take day trips to both Traverse City and the Mackinac Bridge. We appreciate your suggestions and will take them under consideration. We hope to work with you again soon.
Had an amazing time with my family of four. Thank you Cara for answering all our questions. Can’t wait to go back!
