"If you would like a traditional, comfortable, back in time experience, then this cottage has all the amenities. The views of Torch Lake sundowns are still quite memorable, with plenty of big sky and soaring eagles, where pictures paint and books write themselves. This cottage aligns in a historic setting with large trees and a beach front with multiple views. You could sit on the dock, relax on an overlooking deck, or feet in the sand on the side beach. You can see water from bedside or the sunset around the fireplace in the family room. This is traditional, this is why we go north to unwind and it provides the perfect conduit for the experience. Utilities are updated perfectly and do not distract from a turn of century feel for the cottage. Thank you Nan for sharing your family heritage and for being a consummate host"

"We stayed at this lovely home for a wintery New Years getaway. The home is adorable! It has been renovated with very tasteful architectural detailing and chic decor. The colors are fresh and smart. The house was very cozy for our family of four and offered a fully stocked kitchen complete with a crockpot for preparing meals while we hike the snowy trails. Only a block from downtown made walking to shop and dine a pleasure, even in the snow! The owner was great and provided additional information for our outdoor interests. Can't wait to return in summer to fully enjoy this spectacular destination!"

"We've come to Empire for several years escaping the heat of southern Indiana. This is a great house and meets all our needs. It's modern and in a nice quiet neighborhood. In the past we've stayed in different houses but this one is by far the best. It's a pleasant little walk to downtown and the beach. There are nice hiking trails close by. The owner is a very nice person to know. Book early... this house goes fast."

"We have stayed here many times and are always sad to leave. Such a great place to take our large family with kids of all ages. Their is always something for everyone to do. It's also so nice to have a beautiful home to stay at with everything you need. When coming up north this property is our first choice every time for all seasons."
