Property description

This cute and clean '1940s' era cottage is much the way you would have found it mid-century: no TV, no phone, lots of clean air and water, nesting loons, and the good company you've traveled with. It has one bedroom with a double bed, and a curtained alcove room with a twin bed. The kitchen was updated in 2006 and the bath in 2013. New is the screened-in front porch and windows. This Thayer Lake beachfront cottage shares 150 foot of prime frontage with its sister cottage, 'Pine' (VRBO listing 467656). The cottage sits 400 feet back off the road. Thayer Lake is a no-wake lake perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and relaxed enjoyment of nature. There are both sunny and shady areas along the waterfront and a lakeside fire pit for making S'mores. The lake access is shallow and gradual, good for children and wading. Within one mile of the cottage are two public accesses to Torch Lake, one of Michigan's largest and certainly most beautiful sandy-bottomed lakes.
