About the owner: love spending time up north at the cottage. Great times here and many years of exploring the lake and it's beauty. love to antique and explore the wonderful region here.

Why the Owner Chose Torch Lake Township:
Torch Lake is the one of the most beautiful lakes we have ever seen. We spent our summers on Torch when we were raising our kids, and opted to buy a place of our own. Wonderful memories of the northern Michigan days that seem to never end. Family gatherings and reunions still happen at this cherished and loved cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love to rent jet skiis and pontoon boats just down the lake. Love spending the day on the dock with a great book. Great location for day trips to many other quaint towns in the region. The most beautiful golf course, A-GA-MING, is across the street, quaint clubhouse for burgers and beer with incredible lake views from the top of the golf course. Wine tasting country nearby, restaurants abundant. Kids and adults love variety of recreational and siteseeing opportunities.
