About G. Markley

Gary's family is one of the oldest families on the lake. His Grandfather was a Presbyterian Minister in Bartlesville Oklahoma who took summers off to come all the way to Torch Lake to fish, eventually retiring here and serving the Elk Rapids Presbyterian church. Gary's Dad retired as an MD here. Now it's Gary's turn.

G. Markley purchased this cabin in 1920

Why G. Markley chose Torch Lake

One of the first cottages on the south end of the lake, it was acquired around 1920 because it was next door to the family cottage. It has a knotty pine interior, hardwood floors, and ceramic tile in the kitchen and bathroom.

What makes this cabin unique

You will fall in love with this cottage and the lake from the large covered porch. This is the spot to be on the lake, close enough to the sand bar if you want to spend time there but far enough away to not be bothered by all the boats and activity.

Made for a wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the long Memorial Day weekend at the cottage. Everything was perfect. The views were amazing, the cottage itself was just as pictured, clean and organized. The owner was really nice and made sure everything went well. I have no complaints at all about the trip. It made our anniversary that much better!

We had a beautiful stay and are certain we're coming back next summer!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is no more than 25 feet from water with your own dock, moor for boat, plenty of kayaks to share, swim platform. Two fans supplied in cottage helped us get through a couple of very warm, humid nights. Plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, t.p, paper towel. Room to park our trailer, two motorcycles and bicycles. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes, cooking necessities, glasses, coffee maker, etc. Icing on the cake was Gary himself. Nice to have a neighbor to talk to right next door. We don't like to do dishes, so we took our own paper plates and napkins.
