Boat slip near the Torch Lake Sandbar! Adorable cottage!!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

Just off the Torch River just yards from the south end of Torch Lake

2 bedrooms and 2 new bathrooms and BOAT SLIP. This place is adorable! The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and very nicely appointed. The master suite has a queen bed with a memory foam mattress, a large closet and a huge bathroom complete with an oversized tub and vessel sink. The second bedroom has two sets of bunk beds, with one of the bottom bunks being a full sized bed allowing sleeping for 5.

With all the renovations we worked hard to maintain much of original charm that was original to the cottage. The open concept living room, kitchen and dining room are nicely decorated with pickled knotty pine on most of the walls. The dining room has been updated with not only a new door wall but also a set of brand new french doors opening onto our huge patio.

The new patio is great for enjoying early morning sun as well winding down after a long day on the lake. Enjoy the use of our Weber gas grill, large dining table and chairs as well as our large sectional outdoor couch.

Once the sun sets move your party over to the large fire pit and make some s'mores!

About Angie

We fell in love with the area 4 years ago and bought our place a year later. We have spent the last 3 years making this place out own and love our little home away from home.

Angie purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Angie chose Rapid City

We are located minutes away from Elk Rapids, Turtle Creek Casino, Shorts Brew Pub and most importantly steps from public access to Torch Lake! You can walk to the sandbar! If you have a boat, you can boat there within 5 minutes from your boat slip located behind Fabiano's on the River (you can stop for supplies on your way out to the lake).

What makes this cottage unique

Boat slip! Boat slip! Fabiano's pizza! Boat slip! Fishing on your private dock! Park like setting! Did I mention the Boat slip? Awesome outdoor sitting area! Fire pit!! HUGE patio! And last but not least, a boat slip!
