Property description

This spacious cottage is situated on an expansive private lot and sandy beach on the south side of Torch Lake. The unobstructed view from the house and deck is down the center of the lake, which boasts a beautiful sandy bottom ideal for swimming and play any time of the day or night. This is one of the most stunning properties on Torch Lake. North-facing location affords beautiful views of sunrises and sunsets over the lake. In the evening, take advantage of the fire pit on the beach to roast marshmallows. House features comfortable furnishings, modern amenities, high speed wireless internet access, washer and dryer, eat-in bar, and all the comforts of home. Dock and boat hoist for added convenience.





Property Location: This cottage is located 1.5 miles from Torch River and Torch River Marine where you can rent pontoon and speed boats. It is approximately 5 miles south of Alden, which boasts shops, restaurants, and tennis courts. You are just a boat ride away from the Dockside restaurant at Clam River, which is a great place to sit outside, watch the boats go by, and enjoy a nice lunch or dinner. You are a short 20 minute drive from Traverse City, home of the Traverse City Film Festival.

Beautiful House: The cottage is comfortable and airy and boasts all of the comforts and convenience of home, including a fully stocked kitchen and a washer and dryer. A large deck is great for el fresco dining and the yard large enough for Croquet and volleyball. A boat hoist is available, as well as a heavy duty mooring anchor 100 feet from shore for a second watercraft. Long dock has a deck area for beach chairs.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Rapid City, MI, USA:
I spent every summer of my childhood on Torch and, though I have traveled to many places in my life, I have never found a place as beautiful as Torch Lake. The water is clear and the sand is sugary. You can walk out for half a mile before it is over your head and it's great for kids because of the shallow water near the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Crystal clear water and a sandy bottom are great for kids, for playing and swimming. Beautiful view all the way down the lake with glorious sunrise and sunsets. Awesome for swimming, boating, sunning, and SUPs.
