Torch Lake Township cottage description

This 3 bedroom, 1 bath cottage style home is artistically designed to blend the indoor with the outdoor landscaping of plants, trees, a gift shop, and even a cafe serving breakfast and lunch! Pine Hill Nursery is well known as a destination trip for gardening, landscaping, and educational classes related to horticulture. Out the back door of a planted patio, you smell the homemade breakfast and lunch cooking, which is available to customers during the summer and fall season. Another amenity to this property is access to a swim beach on beautiful Torch Lake approx. 2 blocks away. Bring a kayak, canoe, bike, and shoes for walking as you are surrounded by a variety opportunities for outdoor fun. Located 20 miles south of Charlevoix, 12 miles north of Elk Rapids, 25 miles from Traverse City, and 10 miles to Central Lake.Even though you may be sitting in the midst of a retail operation, the cottage offers indoor privacy and a small outdoor patio area, beautifully decorated. In the summer season, Thursday-Friday- Saturday evenings provide you with outdoor live music on the patio between the Cafe and the Cottage until 9:00 pm which is open to the general public for light fare dining with beer and wines available.

                  Year Purchased: 1983

                  About: This original homestead was fully remodled in 2012. The Nursery had been a family owned business for over 30 years. Visit their website at www.pinehill-nursery.com.

                  Why Torch Lake Township:
                  Located on US 31 North, this is a great rental for the traveler who would like to take off on day trips and visit all the Grand Traverse region has to offer. From The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to Mackinac Island, with so much in between can keep you entertained and well fed with the eateries, wineries, farm markets, and cultural establishments galore along Northwest Michigan's shoreline.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Even though there may be customers during the day on the several acres of nursery property, this cottage is on the edge of the project where most clients are not shopping. 1 Complimentary breakfast served from our cafe to a weekly rental party. Just step out on your patio!
