What a delightful home/cottage! We thoroughly enjoyed the excellent old workmanship and the antique
We were very pleased with the location - right on the shore of Torch Lake facing west. We enjoyed watching the sunsets. It's also very pleasant seeing the sun begin to shine on the opposite shore in the morning. The call of the loons is so soothing. The furnishings were more than adequate and comfortable.
We were very relaxed and accomplished exactly what we came for - doing nothing in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Thank you!!
Large cabin, Great location
Overall great vacation. Wonderful location on Torch Lake. Large cabin, great bedrooms (large master), bathrooms for our family. The kids loved swimming, playing in the yard. The dock is in rough shape, seemed unstable. Needs repair/replacement.
We were fortunate that the other 2 cabins on either side were rented out by families after our first night with noisy neighbors. Otherwise, we had a wonderful week.
Beautiful piece of property literally steps from the beautiful Torch Lake! The home is very old and could use a little updating. Almost all the kitchen utensils you could need. Absolutely reminds me of being at grandmas cabin. I do have to say I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the home. I new when I rented this property it was an older home so I can live with the outdated appliances and no air conditioning! That being said if it weren’t for the location and the amount of money we spent booking over 1 year ago, we probably would have left. The floors were covered in dirt/sand and dog hair! After cleaning the floors and washing sheets for the the first few hours, When I was able to find a vacuum cleaner it was clogged so badly the dust was shooting out everywhere with no suction! so I had to fix it ( Which makes me wonder if the cleaning service even uses or used the vacuum)? My children’s bed linens were never washed because there was sand all over their sheets. Nothing smelled freshly washed. We made the best of it because we wanted to be together. Needless to say the home was much cleaner upon our departure than arrival. It also might not be be a bad idea to get some sort of pest control the ants and spiders are quite bad. Obviously outside but terrible on the inside as well.
Loved the old cottage feel of this place. Tons of space. Beautiful views. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the lake was amazing!
Torch Lake cottage
Overall we enjoyed the property and location on the lake, it is very close to dockside and a great Marina and the cute town of Alden. The house is 50 years one on a beautiful secluded property. It could use a thorough update and cleaning, but we could make it work. The layout of the house was great for a family and the water frontage as very nice. We were not clear at rental that we would be sharing the property with 2 other parties in smaller cottages on either side, all in all we had 3 different renters during our stay, which proved to be disruptive because we shared a dock and outside space, some stayed up into the late hours of the night. It just was not very private. The house is a full week rental which is much more, the cottages can be rented for shorter time, I don't think it was fair for us to have that inconvenience with the higher price tag. It would be a great place to rent all together with a large group, but we will not return with this set up of multiple renters on one property.
Traditional cottage directly on the shores of Torch Lake with beautiful views.
Traditional cottage directly on the shore of Torch lake with beautiful views. The cottage was well maintained with plenty of room and had a classic cottage vibe. The east side location was perfect and a short drive to Alden. We will be back.
