Owner info

Year Purchased: 1920

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Rapid City, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
