Experience Torch Lake's crystal clear waters, sandy bottoms and phenomenal sunsets. Recognized by National Geographic as one of the three most beautiful lakes in the world. Torch Lake is located in northwestern Michigan’s lower peninsula in what is referred to as the area’s 'chain of lakes' region. Many lakes and rivers run through the rolling hills from the town of Bellaire to Elk Rapids. One of the things that makes Torch Lake so beautiful is its unusual color – a mixture of pastel green, blue and turquoise. Some have called it a 'Caribbean Blue.' The colors and clarity of Torch Lake leaves one with lasting memories. Ideal swimming, boating, water skiing, sailing and a variety of water activities.

The close by surrounding communities offer a wide variety of artistic and cultural pursuits, excellent shopping and antiquing opportunities, and a huge assortment of restaurants, allowing you to explore the many quaint, picturesque and historic villages and towns in the area.
