About Bill Torongo

Im a life long resident of Roscommon. I grew up on this river and love all it has to offer. We fish, canoe and swim in the summer and ski in the winter.

Roscommon is home.

What makes this house unique

This house is cool because it is close to town but may as well be a million miles away. There are no canoe liveries upstream so there is no canoe traffic. it is totally peaceful. The trail head for the ski trail is a short walk down the road. The open floor plan with a fireplace in the middle makes for the tops in relaxation.

Great Spot, Great House, Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with cross country trailhead at the end of the road and the Cross Country Ski Headquarters a short drive away. Beautiful setting with relaxing views of the Au Sable River and surrounding woods. The house had plenty of space for our group of 6 and was well stocked with kitchen gear and plenty of fire wood for the fire pit and awesome double-sided fireplace. Bill (the owner) was very friendly and easy to work with. We will be back for sure!

ANOTHER AWESOME STAY ON THE AUSABLE RIVER

  • 5 of 5

THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR MY FAMILY AND I STAYED IN THIS HOUSE AND IT WAS ANOTHER WONDERFUL, RELAXING TIME - THE COLOUR WAS JUST STARTING TO SHOW UP THERE - WE HAD RAIN OR OVERCAST MOST OF THE TIME WE WERE THERE, BUT IT WAS STILL A GREAT TIME - WE WENT THE SHORT TRIP TO S HIGGINS LAKE STATE PARK AND SPENT SOME TIME IN TOWN - THE ANTIQUE SHOP WAS FUN AND WE CHECKED OUT A FEW NEW SPOTS - AND OF COURSE WENT BACK TO BC PIZZA! THE LAST DAY WE WERE THERE IT WAS SUNNY AND JUST THE SLIGHTEST BREEZE - WE SPENT THE DAY OUT ON THE DECK AND PATIO READING AND PLAYING GAMES. WE SAW A FAMILY OF DEER FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND EVEN WATCHED ONE OF DEER RUN DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIVER RIGHT IN FRONT OF US! WE ARE ALREADY LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR TRIP NEXT FALL. THE HOUSE IS FANTASTIC - BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF THE RIVER, SPOTLESS, WELL STOCKED AND COZY.

THANK YOU, BILL FOR A SUPER VACATION SPOT!

Awesome location, excellent river home!

  • 5 of 5

We were here for the Labor Day weekend with friends and had a blast! The house is great for a large group. You have easy access to the water. We floated right from our own backyard. We cooked all of our meals in the house and had a serious blast all weekend. Lots of firewood for the fire pit and an all around great experience. Bill was easy to work with and accessible to us if we needed him! Loved it!!

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year back to Bill's rental on the AuSable and were totally satisfied yet again. It's the perfect property for our group of 8 for our yearly canoeing adventure (with room for 10 if we needed it). The property is just perfectly located near the canoe livery with plenty of other things to do all around the area. The house is always clean and well stocked and Bill even made some upgrades this year with the addition of a pool table in the house and a gas grill on the deck which was a huge asset cooking for 8 people. On Friday the weather was perfect so we enjoyed sitting in the sand bar in the river right out back to cool off. Already thinking about next years trip.

Thanks for everything Bill! Always a pleasure working with you!

Loved our stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home right on the Au Sable River. Our family had a wonderful time and Bill was easily accessible for any of our questions. Make sure to take time to meet with Bill on your arrival so he can go over all the ins and outs of the house. Very clean house with plenty of room inside and out! We where able to host a 4th of July family BBQ without any problems. The children loved the canoes! We also loved that the house was dog friendly cause our dogs are family! We enjoyed a few evening strolls into town to get some ice cream. Very close to town but also very quite and secluded.

Thanks again Bill for sharing your house!

Beatiful River Views

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views out the large windows facing the river. Late season snow when we visited but the riverfront looks like it would be great for summer enjoyment. Would likely be a good fit for families meeting for a weekend. Very clean, easy to find.
