  • Family Group

    "We have stayed here several times and it is perfect for a family winter retreat. The home has everything needed, and is near the ski slopes. Younger kids love the sledding hill just outside. The size makes it possible for various activities at the same time Everyone loves being able to play ping pong, and our family also enjoys the number of televisions we can use for video games and movie night. When we need a break from cooking, pizza and restaurants are a short walk away, although it's not easy to leave the warmth of the cozy fireplace. We will be back."

  • Had a beautiful vacation!

    "We have rented several lakefront homes/cottages, and this was truly our favorite! The house was clean and comfortable - nice furniture and new carpeting. Plenty of room for us and our 4 kids, but may have been a little crowded with 8 or more if you get a couple days of rain. Two TV's with movies and video games to kept the kids happy in the evenings and on rainy days - we didn't hear "I'm bored" once. The nearby nature trails allowed the older kids freedom to explore and have some time to themselves. The house had everything we needed - beach toys for the younger kids, kitchen utensils and flatware, lawn chairs, and two refrigerators eliminated the need for repeated trips to the store. It's obvious that the owners put a lot of effort into making sure we had everything - right down to the beach towels and the spare LP tank for the grill. The location was perfect - 15 minutes to either Charlevoix or Boyne City, and perfect distance for a day trip to Mackinac Island or Traverse city. The lake is big enough that we didn't hear the constant droning of jet-ski's typical of smaller lakes. If you have one, definitely bring your boat! Shoppers' docks at Charlevoix, and public slips at Boyne City allowed us to do most everything we needed to do from the water, without the need to deal with peak season traffic and parking. Plus so many other things to see and do on the boat - Lake Michigan, Oyster Bay, waterfront dining, sunsets - you can spend the entire week on the water. The neighbors were welcoming, friendly, and very helpful. On our day of departure we had to pack up and hurry off ahead of an approaching storm, so we never had a chance to thank them, but they truly made the difference."

  • Great time on Torch Lake

    "My family and I had a wonderful time! One of the best places we have rented over the years. The house is older, but in very good condition. It was very clean, and had everything we needed to have a great week. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes.... The 3 bed rooms are very good size and have great views of the lake. The little room off the kitchen worked well with a nice sofa bed in there. The place was large...big enough for our whole gang, both inside and out. One day we had our large group plus some extra day visitors and there was plenty of room. Lots of chairs outside on the deck and the grass. We had campfires each night after boating and swimming all day.... The old log cabin out back worked out great for my group of teens, they loved it! The water off the dock is shallow (3 feet?) and the bottom is stony so bring some water shoes. But the water is very clear! We were it there every day! We highly recommend this place."

  • Beautiful, relaxing cottage

    "We absolutely loved our weekend get away at the Shadows on Hamlin lake. The owners, Mark and Deb were extremely friendly and helpful. The cottage is adorable and very clean and trust me when I say you will never want to leave! Lots of hiking trails and great fishing right outside your door. Very peaceful and relaxing and definitely a place we will be going back to visit!"
