This is one of three of our vacation home rentals we have been in the vacation rental business for 20 years.
Sandy purchased this House in 2010
Why Sandy chose Torch Lake Township
This house is on Portage Lake and is conveniently located to all the exciting special events, attractions, and recreational opportunities in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Michigan Tech University and Finlandia University are only 6 miles. The well-designed kitchens and the charcoal grill make cooking easy for those who want to eat at home rather than going out to eat.
What makes this House unique
This home is also a model home featuring Golden Eagle Log Homes. I am an Independant Dealer for Golden Eagle Homes. All three of our vacation rentals are Golden Eagle Log Home packages.

What a beautiful home with a beautiful view. There was plenty of room for all of us. Very comfortable. Our hosts were fantastic and very attentive. We would love to come back!
Exceeded our expectations. Very nice accommodations for our group.
The Kemp's we're very accommodating, we will defiantly be back to the UP!
What a spectacular place to stay!
Everything was great. Sandy was very responsive and made our stay one to remember. There was more than enough space for our group of friends and family that came together to enjoy Winter Carnival. Very convenient to the Tech campus - sure different than the housing we had as students 30 odd years ago! :)
Pictures do not do it justice!
All 17 if us were very pleased with everything. Great views,size of house, access to the trails, closeness of city amenities. Can’t wait till next year. This place is A+
