Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: Te Papa (Our Place) Cottage has provided our family with happy memories for 4 generations. Its tranquil surroundings have provided a constant haven in our lives. We are delighted to share it's charm with our guests while we are living in Chicago to be near our 2 new grandchildren.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Torch Lake offers so many adventures, from cruising the Chain of Lakes, to visiting the sandbar. We love the old growth stand of trees between the cottage and the road that makes the cottage quiet and secluded. We see deer, foxes, and many birds from the back patio. The view of the lake from the livingroom and deck is stunning!
