Torch Lake Township cottage description

Descend through the woods on a winding private drive to a sprawling lakefront estate on Torch Lake's coveted east shore. Nearly 400' of lakefront, including a small private beach and breathtaking sunset views. The property features a ranch-style main house that sleeps 12; a log cabin that sleeps four; a garage with workshop; an old-fashioned ice house; a large playfield perfect for croquet, volleyball, and badminton; a lighted shuffleboard court; and a lighted tennis court (the court has some irregularities in the surface, but is fully useable). A large flagstone patio overlooks the lake from the home's perch atop a 30' embankment, and an enormous picture window looks out from the spacious wood-paneled living room with vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace (featuring a Franklin stove). The property is infused by white birch and cedar, with woods separating the house from both neighbors and the road. The kitchen features 2 refrigerators, 1.5 ovens, microwave, dishwasher, and disposal.


Maximum number of guests is 16.

Majila is not for rent as an event destination (e.g.., no weddings or large family reunions).
