Recent Torch Lake reviews

  • Secluded cottage, beautifully decorated, great lake views

    "This home is a true find. We were blown away when we walked inside and saw what was there, namely the open layout and view of the lake. The cottage is very color happy, perfectly put together, and stocked with everything you could want, right down to a relaxing CD collection and a gas fireplace. There is so much to do and see (sunrises, stars popping at night) and you don't have to go far. When we arrived, the late September weather was warm enough to allow for a few Torch Lake swims. We took those swims just down the road at a state-access point, where we had the beach to ourselves. Road biking from the cottage is very good, offering nice views and only a few cars. We also enjoyed a drive around Torch Lake, stopping in several towns, including Central Lake, Bellaire (Short's Brewery), and ending in Elk Rapids. Kim and Kevin were both very helpful and take great care of this property. Kim even alerted us to the warm fall weather forecast and encouraged us to make our drive early so we could enjoy it. I would suggest this home to anyone and would certainly come back again."

  • Very Rustic and Peaceful

    "We recently stayed at this rental and had the most amazing time in this cabin! We had two boys and our dog! The boys absolutely loved the loft area and thought having the ladder that took them to their room was awesome! The property the cabin sits on is very relaxing and very peaceful! Your are surrounded by trees and wilderness! The river view is breathtaking off the back porch! The fly fisherman and sounds of the fish flopping in the water at night completes the up north feel! The dock is a nice addition for our boys spent hours down their using their imagination and playing! We had a lot of fun! It was family friendly and we found that we didn't even really need to go anywhere else because of all the things we could do right there on the property! It was only a 2 minute drive to the beautiful torch lake! And in close vicinity to a lot of other beautiful destinations and great things to do! The owners were very accommodating and provided us with county maps and information about the area! It was a wonderful family vacation!"

  • Weekend Wedding with Friends

    "Our stay at this beautiful Torch Lake home was great in every way! The Master Bedroom overlooks the beautiful lake and the California King sized bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The other bedroom was huge and could sleep 6 people comfortably - possibly even 8 because one of the beds has a trundle. There is also a sofa sleeper in the den. The décor was very nice and the furniture placement had good feng shui. The grill on the deck was new and we grilled out and were able to enjoy the sunset. Another night we used the wood that the owner provided to build a fire in the fireplace and watched E.T. Late one evening I went down to the dock to meditate - the stars were beautiful and the lake was very serene and calm. It was quiet and peaceful. On the last morning, we drove down to the "Flea Market" where a lady makes fresh donuts every Sunday. They were a tasty indulgence. We also had lunch one day at Shorts in Bellaire - their pizza is amazing, as are their sandwiches..."

  • A beautiful way to get away for a while.

    "We fell in love with your vacation home from the pictures and hoped that they were a real depiction of the place. We were not disappointed. The home was lovely and spotless and had everything that you'd ever need to have a wonderful vacation.We had 3 girls who rode the bikes into town every day and played games in the four seasons room on rainy days. We we shopped in Alden and Bellaire and Charlevoix. We went to several good restaurants around the lake. We rented a boat and the girls went tubing and we even got to watch the Tigers on your big screen TV. Everyone was happy because there were so many options. We had all of our meals on the outside deck where we grilled and there was plenty of both sun and shade . Most days there was a nice breeze and, of course, the gorgeous lake to look at. We loved the park like landscaping and the all over beauty and serenity of the place. Everyone gave us a friendly wave as we drove in and out on the street. We ate at Dockside , the Torch Riviera, the Wild Onion , and The Alden Bar. We had giant ice cream cones at the little store in Alden. I also bought a couple of winning lotto tickets there. We replenished our spices from the Spice Mill and bought smoked fresh fish from the smokehouse in Bellaire. The entire week seemed almost magical to us and we would highly reommend it to our friends . We left reluctently with great memories and feeling very relaxed."
