About the Property

Four Bedroom, Two Bath On Torch Bayou

Our home is a totally renovated cape cod located in the town of Rapid City. We back up to the Torch Bayou, with space to park one boat during your stay. There is public access to the famous Torch Lake sand bar across the street for swimming. We are less than half of a mile from Torch River Marine where you can rent a boat to access Torch Lake and the rest of the Chain of Lakes.

The nearby town of Alden (4 miles away) also has a boat ramp and swimming area as well as several unique shops and restaurants. We are only about 25 minutes from Traverse City, home of the National Cherry Festival and many shops, restaurants, wineries, breweries and tap rooms. For those who enjoy craft beers, it is definitely worth the 15 minute drive to Short's Brewery in nearby Bellaire. Also, within an hour's drive you will be able to visit Charlevoix, Petoskey and Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Northern Michigan is not just a wonderful destination for spending time on the water. The area offers a multitude of activities. We are minutes away from world class golf courses, vineyards and casinos.


The house has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen and ample space for eight people to relax after spending the day enjoying the best that Northern Michigan has to offer. We also have a large deck with gas grill that is perfect for a BBQ. There is a fire pit overlooking the Torch Bayou for roasting marshmallows or just relaxing and enjoying the view.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I weren't looking to buy a cottage on Torch Lake, but a chain of unusual and complicated events led us to our Crystal Beach Getawey and we could not be happier. A lot of blood, sweat and tears have been shed renovating this home to make it a great place for our family and other families to enjoy for many years to come. We love everything about it, and hopefully you will too.
