About the property

Torch Lake Get-a-way,Hot tub, Dock, Pontoon/ Sunset views/TC Night-life, slps 9

Why spend the Beach Front $$$ when you can affordably have everything here. Bring your boat to our private dock, or rent our pontoon and spend the day basking under the famous Torch Lake Sandbar!!! Our log chalet is large enough for families and friends but cozy and romantic enough for couples. We even have extra bunk cabins on our property to accommodate more of your guest! We specialize in Satifaction! We have added a deluxe camper on the water 5 minutes from Torch Lake. Give us a 2315641828.

Our log chalet overlooks magnificent sunsets and tree tops views from a spacious shaded deck.

Many 5 star reviews best describe this log chalet rental on 140 private acres during all 4 seasons! Nestled in the hills near the south end of the beautiful clean waters of Torch Lake we offer privacy, comfort, and great memories!!

Our Number one Attraction is the World's Third Most Beautiful Lake, TORCH LAKE and our Famous Sandbar!! We are 10 minutes from Turtle Creek Casino and 20 minutes from Traverse City with Meijers shopping between the two.

We are a day's outing to the most popular ski resorts, Sleeping Bear Dunes, or the Big Mac Bridge and Mackinac Island. Traverse City and the Turtle Creek Casino is 10-20 minutes away.

Winter time is fun in the Pure Michigan snow! Close to Traverse City and all the ski resorts, cross country skiing, festivals, specialty restaurants, snow sledding, ice fishing. All winter sports near by! Plus, come back to the chalet, go snow shoeing on our property and soak under the stars in our sparkling clean hot tub!

Catch Spring fever here and make it last until summer! Wild flowers, mushroom hunters, stream and lake fishing. Rent our boat. Come back to our fresh and clean outdoor hot tub and count how many constellations you can see.

Summer is full of life here! Why pay the high price of shoreline rent when we have the perfect spot for Torch Lake fun plus a nice pontoon to rent or a boat dock for your own boat!! IMAGINE, laying out in the blazing sun on the famous Torch Lake Sandbar by day and counting the stars from our fresh clean hot tub by night. We can sleep up to 9 in beds. Never run out of hot water with our state of the art hot water system.

Honeymoons, Reunions, Family Get-a-ways! Our log chalet's hillside setting is the prettiest and most peaceful vacation rental in the south Torch Lake area.

How long has it been since you counted the constellations on a clear, bright starry night? Or listened to the howls of coyotes in a distance or seen a family of wild turkey strolling by?

Isn't it time you and your loved ones escape out of the city lights and come up to our northern lights for an extended weekend or even for a week long break.

Our log chalet is cozy enough for honeymooners or couple retreats, (we have many) yet large enough for family and friends!

All year long, the Torch Lake/ Traverse City area is buzzing with events, festivals, concerts, restaurants, wineries,and shopping!

Our detailed cabin is furnished with all the necessities inside including quality cookware, linens and towels! You will never run out of hot water for showers because we have an on demand hot water heater. We clean the hot tub and its filters between each renter and fill it will hot water before you arrive. We also include fire wood to roast those marshmellows while watching the panoramic sunsets from our cedar swing!

You can rent our pontoon for the day for fishing, playing, or relaxing on the famous Torch Lake sandbar by taking advantage of our multiple day pontoon discounts or dock your own boat at a rented dock space just for our guests!

On our property, there are many walking trails and places to sit to take in the views or engage in conversation with your friends. We have even provided a space just for sun bathing or book reading.

We hope you will consider coming to our secluded chalet with a view. We have many return visitors...check out our reviews! Come to Torch Lake, stay and play! Thanks for reading. God Bless!

About Dale

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for letting us stay in your charming chalet! We had such a great time hiking seven bridges and sleeping bear dunes. We enjoyed visiting the nearby lakes- though still frozen. Sunset with hot tubs are always nice too! We hope to be back soon!!

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful New Year's spending time with family and friends. Cabin was well equipped, clean, and contained all the amenities one could expect. Not far to many activities, restaurants, and shopping. Hot tub was wonderful. It was a winter wonderland with new snow daily, but that did not deter us from having a perfect intro to the new year! Took some very pretty winter photos on our walks of property, shopped in downtown Traverse City, ate a hearty dinner at a local brewery, and snow tubed nearby. Owners fully accommodating and helpful.

Beautiful setting, perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place run by wonderful people! We are already looking at the calendar to see when we can come back for an extended weekend. They went above and beyond when we had a vehicle crisis - and the hot tub definitely helped to take our minds off the car issue! Thankful we found this place and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful view, quite and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for just one night as we were in town on business. The location was close enough to Traverse City, yet far enough to be quiet and secluded. The home was very well appointed with comfortable furniture, dishes, pots and pans and basic spices. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with a beautiful view as a nice bonus! Very good communications with the owners. Would be great for any getaway.
