Property description

Torch Lake has long been one of the most sort after “Up North” destinations with National Geographic Magazine rating it as one of the most beautiful lake in the World.

The cottage has four bedrooms arranged as 1 king, and 3 queens comfortably sleeping 8 people.
The cottage is on the east side facing west, therefore we enjoy amazing sunsets. We have 180ft of lake frontage and dock that give easy access for boating on Torch and interconnecting Elk and Bellaire lakes.
15 minutes away Shanty Creek is great for skiing, snowboarding and tubing. 45 minutes away Boyne Resorts provide excellent skiing and tubing in the winter, golf in the summer and Avalanche Bay water park.
For those that prefer a more leisurely pace Alden is a short walk away, boasting quaint antique and gift shops and the not to be missed Higgins Store famous for its ice creams.

The cottage is available for weekly rental Saturday to Saturday all year round, long weekends available by request. Find yourself sitting by the fire pit watching the sun go down over beautiful Torch Lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are Zoe and Tony Booth, we have 4 children and live in Bloomfield Hills Michigan Originally we are from London England and 13 years ago my husband was offered an advertising job here.

Why the Owner Chose Alden:
We visited Torch Lake the first year we arrived in Michigan and rented a few times. We absolutely fell in love with the place, it is very special to us and the rest of our family visiting from England

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is in a great location for short tubing rides on the boat, longer day trips to Elk Lake or just popping up to The Dockside by boat for dinner. Bike rides into town to play tennis and get an ice cream is all part of our stay. In the winter we enjoy our cosy weekends in the cottage skiing and tubing and coming back home to the cottage to sit by the fire and relax. The lake is so dramatic in the depths of the winter, we spend many weekends enjoying skiing and walking.
