Recent Alden property reviews

  • What a week!

    "Accommodations were wonderful. The place was comfortable and much larger than we expected. Lots of room to relax and it was an easy walk to Alden or to the house being rented by our family members. And the lake was beautiful, even on the one day it rained. Thank you for your hospitality. It was a week we'll never forget!"

  • Back Again...!

    "We're back for our second, two-week stay at the Alden House, and for good reason - it's wonderful! There are two criteria that make a vacation rental great - good owners and a good property. The Alden House meets and exceeds both! Rich and Karen are great owners who show a lot of respect for us just in the way they maintain the house and keep it current; they are most accommodating at meeting the special needs of our family - especially adding wi-fi this year! The house, the location, and the lake; we've been coming to Torch for more then 20 years and we feel like we've finally found our home away from home. Every review we've read is spot-on, the great thing about this place is you don't need to be on the water to have a great spot, great view of the lake, sunsets, and your only minutes from accessing the lake. Anyone looking for a great place in this area, with all of these amenities, great owners, and very affordable - here it is!"

  • Up North at Thayer Lake

    "This was our first visit to the Torch Lake area and our stay at the Thayer Lake Cottages could not have been more pleasant. It was every bit as lovely and more so than the listing photos portray. The cottage was clean and comfortable and appropriately appointed. Most of our meals we ate while sitting in the screened porch. We grilled many of our meals and enjoyed our evenings next to the lake around the campfire. We arrived anticipating spending the majority of our time boating on Torch Lake. There was a very nice public access ramp 1-1/2 mile from the cottage on Clam Lake that goes into Torch Lake. But, after seeing another visitor catch a fish on his first cast, my husband was very keen to go fishing. He would tell you that the excellent fishing on Thayer Lake was the biggest surprise and one of the highlights of his week. Butch's Bait & Tackle at Clam River is about a mile from the cottage where fishing gear and licenses are available. The Dockside, also at Clam River was a great place to enjoy lunch sitting on the deck looking out across Torch Lake. We had an excellent Sunday brunch at the Alden Bar & Grille with made to order omelets and shrimp & mussel pasta alfredo, mmm. We enjoyed using the provided kayaks, canoe and floatation devices on Thayer Lake. The fishing was easily done from both kayak and canoe. We completely enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone. It is not a 4-star hotel, however, it's rustic charm is exactly what we were looking for and found..."

    "Loved staying here! We are coming back this year and looking forward to it! House was better than expected! Normally you expect house to be better in the pictures, but that was not the case here. The owners do an excellent job and are available should you need anything!"
