About the owner: After visiting with family many years decided to build a log home with acres to get the true feel of the 'up north' experience! After going to the area more than 25 years-still have things to do that are unique and ever rewarding. Whether its watching the deer from the front porch, the festivals, fairs and art shows. The nature areas and beaches-i still have many things yet to do. Never the same trip twice!

Why the Owner Chose Torch Lake Township:
Near enough yet so far!!!!

Day trips to Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petosky, Bay Harbour, schuss mountain, shanty creek, harbor springs, crystal mountain, Alden, Elk rapids, & the sand dunes are amazing. And even one of the last remaining drive inn movie theaters also not to far away!
