"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!"

"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."

Unique ! Relaxing ! You wont be disappointed !!!!!
"Clean , comfortable , well equipped , charming , historical touches , sweeping view of the lake , beautiful yard and gardens ..... And to add , the owners are very accommodating and hospitable. The location keeps you in the center of Alden , to enjoy a leisurely walk thru the town , or enjoy the private back yard setting , dock , and view the lake. Alden is centrally located in general , to travel to other points of interest as well , and be back in enough time to take in a sunset on Torch , which are always second to none ."

"We had always wanted to see Torch Lake and were pleased to find this property on VRBO. It has it all: lakeside beach, dock, deck, outdoor swings, woodsy out-of-doors feel and a charming "granny cottage". The owner is very organized with instructions, lists of places to eat and things to do, and responsive to questions. The cottage is neat, cozy & clean, with great spaces for gathering, and decorated with very interesting old books for the evening or rainy day. We rented a pontoon nearby and cruised Torch Lake and nearby Clam Lake--great fun!"
