About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Remember your childhood memories of wonderful Northern Michigan summers or create new ones with your family. Our 4 bedroom 2 bath cottage is full of north woods charm. No detail has been spared to make your stay at 'Beautiful Torch Lake' one you will always remember. The cottage is situated on 50 feet of private frontage on the crystal blue waters of Torch Lake (voted third most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic magazine). Imagine yourself sitting on the large deck in a beach chair while the kids swim or boat in the lake. At night, enjoy sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows under the clear star-filled skies.


Walk to Alden or Boat to Popular Destinations

The cottage is only a short walk (1/4 mile on a quiet street) from downtown Alden – a charming small town with a spirit you have to experience to believe. Alden is known for its flower-lined streets where everyone you meet offers a friendly greeting. Alden has several restaurants, and Higgins General Store that has the best, biggest, ice cream cones you could ever eat. The town has cute boutique stores, a deli, family bar, tennis and basketball courts, and a park with a playground. Just at the end of the road are the public boat launch, library and community center. The popular Dockside restaurant is just 10 minutes away by boat or car. Torch Lake’s famous sandbar is also a short boat ride away at the southern end of the lake.

Comfortable Family Cottage

The cottage is situated on the most desirable part of Torch Lake. The sunsets are breathtaking, the lake bottom is hard sand, and because of the way the winds blow, there are very few mosquitoes! A large deck overlooks the water providing wonderful outdoor dining and lounging areas. Ample beach chairs and outdoor furniture, as well as an outdoor gas grill, are provided. We include a dock and mooring buoy for your boat. There are also many opportunities to rent watercraft locally.

The cottage is fully furnished and provides central air conditioning for those extra hot summer nights. The cottage is decorated in the north woods theme. We supply all linens, pillows, towels, paper products and soap products. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, coffee maker, dishes and all pots and pans. We also provide a washer and dryer.

The main level features a large open kitchen and family room with a beautiful stone fireplace, leather furniture and sweeping views of Torch Lake. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a sliding door onto the deck overlooking the lake – less than 50 feet away. Also on the main level, there is another bedroom containing a queen sized bed. The walkout basement has 2 nicely appointed bedrooms with twin size bunk beds, a half bath, and a family room containing a wood burning stove, television and a twin sized roll-away bed.

Disclaimer: Please remember, this is a quiet street and this cottage is ideally suited for families looking to build life long memories and is definitely NOT a party cottage.
