Overview

About the property

165feet On Torch Lake, 2 Cottages,4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9,

Turquoise Waters is on the east side of beautiful, crystal clear Torch Lake. So we get to see the glorious sunsets and have a gentle breeze which keeps away any pesky flying critters and the water drops off very gently so its great swimming for all ages. With 165 feet of shoreline , a sandy beach play area, 2 sun bathing rafts,2 kayaks, pedal boat, SUP, water mat,2 BBQ ( one propane -the other briquette), tennis court, an extensive play-swing set, bonfire pit, picnic tables, multiple seating areas to enjoy viewing the lake and sunsets, there are amenities for all ages.

Each cottage can be rented separately if available. Please enquire about a rate.

We have two cottages on the east side of Torch Lake just north of Clam River. Each has two bedrooms, one with two single and one with a queen-sized bed (in each). Each has a full three-piece bath, kitchen and a living room, one has a stone fireplace as well. Linens and towels are provided.

One of the main features is the setting. We have 165 feet of frontage on Torch Lake about half in sandy beach. There are two decks overlooking the lake, a tennis court, beautiful terraced gardens,rolling manicured lawn and some woods. There is a new extensive dock with a large sitting area at the end to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Torch Lake.

There is also an extra hoist which can be rented separately.A pedal boat is at your disposal. There is also a playground for children that we built when our children were smaller which is on the border of the property and shared with our guests next door at Sparkling Waters. The tennis court is also shared .

Beautiful lakefront setting

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a week in July 2016. 7 adults and 4 children (ages 11 months to 7 years old). We rented both cabins, and while they are small, we quickly settled in and really enjoyed our stay without feeling cramped in the slightest. The cabins do share the lot with the Green family's home, but at no point did we feel as though we were intruding on each others space. They were gracious hosts who responded to any concerns quickly, and the grounds are so extensive that there was room for everyone to enjoy the space. Good weather was a plus, because the majority of our meals were able to be enjoyed outside on the grill and at the large picnic tables. The swimming area and crystal clear Torch lake waters are fantastic, and most of our time was spent on the lake. A paddleboat, 2 kayaks, and 2 stand up paddleboards were all put to good use in addition to being able to enjoy the sandy beach, the dock and outdoor seating for sunbathing and watching sunsets, and the tennis courts. There is a bit of rocky-ness to the bottom of the swimming area, and right where you enter the water from the beach. Didn't stop us from enjoying it, but some of us used water shoes to avoid walking on the rocks and it was fine. We really had an outstanding family vacation at this rental, and I would definitely recommend it.

Beauty By the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just wrapped up a wonderful vacation on Torch Lake, Michigan and could not be happier.The property grounds are enormous and very well maintained and there is something to do for every person in your family young or old. Swimming from the expansive dock, kayaks, SUP's, water mats and more all available on the crystal clear lake. When we weren't in the water there was a tennis court, volleyball court, kids jungle gym or a full size chess board to choose from. Not easy keeping two kids under the age of 10 busy every day but they were both completely exhausted every night. The BBQ on the deck was ideal and used daily as where the deck chairs for watching the sunset every night. Because the owners had a place close by they were extremely responsive to any questions we had , even giving us tips on where to shop locally to get the best prices. The cottages were very quaint and well appointed, and were perfect for privacy at night from any of the neighbors. A great time was had by all, we will definitely be back!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Turquoise Waters this past June and had a wonderful time. The cottages are well appointed, and the property is spectacular. There is no shortage of things to do between the beach, playground, tennis court and numerous water toys, and Torch Lake is like no other lake we've ever experienced - crystal clear and turquoise (with absolutely no weeds like we have in Ontario!). A complete treat. We'd highly recommend this property and the location - a wonderful escape from the city. We hope to be back soon.

Torch Lake Paradise

My family and I just wrapped up a wonderful vacation on Torch Lake and could not be happier!! Not only were the grounds enormous but they were very well maintained. This property had something for everyone. Swimming off the dock, kayak's, SUP's, water mats and more all available on the crystal clear lake. When we didn't want to be in the water they had a tennis court or full size chess board to play on. Not easy keeping two kids under the age of 10 busy all week but they were completely exhausted every night. BBQ at our front door was ideal and was used every lunch and dinner and there are deck chairs to watch the sun set over the horizon every night. Because the owners lived next door they were extremely responsive to any questions we had (even giving us tips on where to shop close by to get the best prices!). The cottages were very quaint and well appointed, and were perfect for privacy at night from any of the neighbors. A great time was had by all and we will definitely be back.
