Sunrise Cottage, House on Torch Lake with Sandy Beach & Adjoining Cabin
average rating of 4.375 based on 8 reviews

A great time was had...

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Plenty of space for nine people. The old cottage cooled down nicely in the evening, so no AC was not a problem. The lake is clean and the water clear. The sand bank was great for the kids to play on in the water. No noisy boat traffic, except some jet skis now and then. Supermarket with gas station within 2 miles. Distillery with great gin and vodka 8 miles. Cherry pies 3 miles. There are no marinas in the north end of the lake, so if you have/rent a pontoon boat bring a gas can to buy gas at the gas station. Book a pontoon early if you want one.

Amazing Group Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

The property is just beautiful! Both the main house and the cabin are more than comfortable in size...

plenty of room to stretch out and just relax!

The cabin is very rustic but so incredibly cute and other than the fairly small bathroom, it was the perfect size for 5 adults! The main house was really nice...great bedrooms (ALL with amazing lake views!) and the yard/beach was AWESOME for our mom (a very spry 85!) who loves to be outside and in the water...not a lot of stairs to climb and such!

The best part of the whole property is the deck...we were on it constantly...great views and plenty of comfy chairs! The property is really close to a couple of great grocery stores, some great restaurants and cute shops! And the location works GREAT for shopping, lunch or dinner trips to Petoskey, Charlevoix and Traverse, day trips to Mackinac Island!

All in all,our trip was awesome and I would definitely go back to Sunrise Cottage again and again!!!

Great time on Torch Lake

  • 5 of 5

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.

This place really suited our needs

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home the last two years based its' size. We had a family group of three couples and a bunch of kids ranging from little to big. It's a large older home but the layout works well. The largest upstairs bedroom is huge and has a sliding glass door at two ends so the breeze blows right through. This bedroom is large enough for kids on an air mattress if needed. The second upstairs bedroom is smaller but cozy with a slider overlooking the lake. The larger downstairs bedroom also has a slider. We did use the cabin; it is very rustic but the older kids liked to be able to get away there. There is also a lot of space outside - a large deck area, some nice lawn and gardens, a small deck by the lake and space on the dock to sit. We made good use of the kitchen and laundry facilities. The living room area downstairs is very large and accommodated everyone being together. There's a little sandy beach area which the little kids used all day. The lake is also sandy and there is great smallmouth bass fishing nearby.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful family vacation over the 4th of July. The house and cottage had everything we needed to prepare meals and wash kids clothing. Had a bonfire several nights. The beach is perfect for young kids. Water is shallow and clear. House and cottage are somewhat rustic, but well suited as a cottage rentals.

Would consider renting again next year.

Torch Lake rental

  • 1 of 5

Beach and the lake were wonderful but the home and side cabin had many problems. There were overloaded extension cords everywhere and many lights, fans, garage door opener, etc didn't work. The side cabin has material on the ceiling that sags onto the light fixtures. We were afraid it was a fire hazard. The house furniture is very old and dated and not comfortable to sit on. Much of the furnishings are not suitable for a cottage (i.e.) a cherrywood dining room table! The owner lives next door and had workmen rebuilding the steps while we were trying to enjoy the deck. The owners dog was on our property constantly even coming on the deck when we're trying to eat. Sadly, we would not recommend this property for rental.

Owner's Response: Please note that owners were notified immediately of this complaint. Most issues mentioned pertain to the old cabin, used mostly for overflow in the main house. All areas are being addressed for the 2013 season. This is the first negative complaint we have had in 2 yrs of summer rentals. We are determined to make sure families enjoy their stay at Sunrise Cottage.
