About the property

Ranch Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Situated on a double lot with plenty of room to roam and for privacy, over 200 feet of prime frontage on the East Side of Torch Lake! Secluded by tall timber from the road, this home is a perfect place to soak up serenity. The water is so clear that you can see the sandy bottom all the way out to the drop-off.

The sunsets are breathtaking. Living on the East side comes with perks, most notably the prevailing winds from Lake Michigan, which help keep the mosquitoes at bay. A large deck over looks the water providing wonderful outdoor dining and lounging areas. At night, enjoy sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows under the star-filled skies.

Our recently remodeled, three bedroom, two bathroom cottage is fully furnished. The living area has a wood burning fireplace, the master bedroom has a queen size bed, second bedroom comes with a full size bed and the third bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds. Off the dining area is a screened in porch.

We supply all linens, pillows, towels, paper products, soap products. We also provide a washer and dryer.

Please remember, this is a quiet street and this cottage is ideally suited for families and couples looking to build life long memories and is definitely not a party cottage.

Beautiful House with a Extraordinary View of Torch Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation stay at this house. We loved the screened in porch with the beautiful view of Torch Lake, the fire pit(enjoyed our s'mores), the hammock(very relaxing), the overlook deck with the picnic table. Also, loved all the back windows of the house- so we could always see beautiful Torch Lake. We did not have any problems with it being noisy during our stay. I do like that the house is located far from the road. We've been renting several houses on Torch Lake for many years, and we all agree that this house is definitely one of our favorites. The house was also very clean. My only complaint is that the beds were not real comfortable. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay and I would definitely recommend this house.

Great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great location and nice place. Easy travel to grocery, Bellaire, Dockside etc. Property managers were very nice. The sunset is priceless. Not having a boat lift and having to keep boat away from dock was a hassle - because we had several children with us. We stayed fourth of july week and the neighbors down the road from us came to the door to complain about fireworks. We thought that was inappropriate as they knew we were renters and should have contacted the property manager if they had an issue.

There isn't much space to keep your clothes and again renting with children it was a bit of inconvenience. The fire place is at the bottom of a small hill so hazard for children.

Would recommend for anyone that doesn't have small children.

Wonderful Location On Torch Lake

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your house on Torch Lake, MI in August 2016. This is the first time we've rented on the eastern shore of the lake, and it will not be the last...the sunsets were incredible!! The house was in a terrific location, close to Alden (Dockside and Dewitt's Marina) and Bellaire (groceries and Short's Brewery), very comfortable for our family of six adults, was very clean and met all of our needs. The mooring ball was perfect for our boat, providing quick and easy access to the lake for boating and swimming the day away.

The communication from the owners was terrific...from our initial questions to getting us the information we needed right before our vacation.

Only a couple of minor issues/concerns to be aware of...the exterior of the house is "tired". It could use a paint job and the lawnscaping could use some TLC. The shower in the main bathroom by the bedrooms...the pan felt (to those who used it) very mushy, like the floor below the pan had some water damage. The second shower in the other bathroom is not meant for 6'4'' guys, but we made it work.

Other than that, we would not hesitate to suggest this property to friends, and we may just reserve the house for the same time in 2017.
