Recent Torch Lake reviews

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Beautiful sunsets!

    "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!"

  • 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."
