Across the street from public access. Big house. Affordable
Great place for large group
Loved the amount of room this provided for my large extended family. Only downside was the walk across a busy street to reach the lake. There were a few hiccups on the rental however they were resolved easily.
The internet password/connection was never resolved. Also, they neglect to tell you the back room is the only part of the property that is air conditioned. Not recommended for larger families. Towels and sheets not included. The cottage was only surface cleaned before arrival; cob webs in showers, drawers, ceiling.
The location is prime, and the cooking units are nice (stove, grill, dishwasher, etc). Amazingly close to Alden and sandbar. We will not be renting here again.
A great time with family
Had an awesome time with my family. The beach across the street was beautiful. Would definitely recommend!!
A great Northern Michigan getaway
This place was great! Very tidy and had all the amenities that were needed for a getaway up North. There were 12 of us who stayed here for 3 days. There was plenty of room for all. We enjoyed the outdoor seating areas, including a fire pit in a secluded forest area behind the house and the grilling area on the back porch. The public beach directly across the street provides easy access to Torch Lake. There is a nice grocery store about a mile away that has everything we needed in terms of food and supplies. We rented some pontoon boats from a marina down the street, so we spent most of our time out on the Torch Lake sand bar. I would definitely come back
Everything we wanted
During are stay early june it was everything we wanted we were there for are wedding and the bridal party of 10 stayed with no problems at all with the beach access right across the road for the nice sunsets to go watch over torch lake. Lori who we talked with while we were there was very helpful and gave us space for the 3 days would recommend this house for family get aways.
All activities included in survey are within 20 minutes of cottage, convenient local grocery store in 1 mile from property. Any additional question or concerns please inquire. Thank you
