The lake house provides all of the "must haves":
- Wifi and cable
- Main floor washer and dryer
- Modern kitchen with all of the amenities including filtered chilled water and ice dispenser, dishwasher and Keurig coffee maker
- Central air conditioning
- Real log fireplace
The house sits on a point that provides panoramic views of Lake Michigan to the north and Grand Traverse Bay to the south. The point seems to draw the birds (for you bird watchers). It is located just north of the village of Eastport which is at the northern tip of Torch Lake. You can walk the beach forever - something you can't do on inland lakes.
Enjoy a fire during the cool nights in the lakeside fire pit or the dramatic two story fireplace.
A private sandy area with fire pit is located near the house. A large deck and covered porch overlook the lake.
The beach has pebbles and sand with a bottom of smooth rocks (aqua shoes are recommended).
There are two stand up paddleboards and two tandem kayaks that can be used to enjoy the bay. There are four bikes.
The home is 'like new' with 2,500' square feet of living space.
There are three bedrooms and a 'dormitory' plus sleeper sofa. There are two full bathrooms with tub/showers which are both accessible without entering a bedroom.
The kitchen is a chef's dream. There is over 20' of counter space, a high end induction stove and top of the line All Clad and Williams Sonoma cookware. The appliances are stainless steel. A gorgeous quartz countertop island with double bowl sink provides a dramatic lake view. The icemaker allows ice to be moved right to your cooler.
A washer and dryer is provided on the main floor for convenience.
All the modern conveniences are provided including high speed internet and cable TV (cable TV may not be available in the off season). There are several HD and Ultra HD TVs with ultra HD Nexflix streaming.
To keep you cool there are seven ceiling fans and central air conditioning.
The 'double' lot offers 200 feet of private shoreline and access to miles of beach to walk and enjoy.
The bay is shallow which makes it great for young children.
The master bedroom is a large loft area and the only room upstairs. It overlooks the family room and dining area (and the lake). It has a private reading area. The master bath offers a relaxing whirlpool tub. The second bedroom and den/bedroom are on the main floor. Dormitory sleeping is provided on the lower level in the 'rec room'.
There is a small grocery store with a great deli (and delicious summer BBQ) only 5 minutes away.
Fine dining is available at the nearby Rowe Inn - one of Michigan's most acclaimed restaurants.
There is plenty of parking including space for a boat trailer. There is a boat launch 5 minutes away.
