This two bedroom, one bath cottage is ready for summer fun! Clean and cozy and fully equipped - just bring your toothbrush and beach gear! Don't let another summer go by without experiencing northern Michigan at her finest! We are not located directly on the water, but private township lake access sites are located across the street, just a three minute walk away. The lake is beautiful - has a hard sand bottom and is shallow for a long way out for the kids to play all day. Our location is just 30 minutes away from downtown Traverse City and 15 minutes from the quaint waterfront town of Elk Rapids, where you will find excellent eateries and shopping. There are several awesome marinas in the neighborhood that have speed boat, pontoon boat and kayak rentals. Shanty Creek is just 9 miles away, featuring excellent golf in the town of Bellaire. Turtle Creek Casino is just down the street on M-72, if you're looking for some night-time activities. Or if you're looking to just relax, spend your afternoon at the cottage - nap in the hammock, sit around the campfire or take in the lake views from the front porch. All-in-all, you're picking a great spot to experience northern Michigan and the breath-taking lower chain of lakes, featuring Lake Bellaire, the Grass River, Clam Lake, Torch Lake, the Torch River, Skegemog Lake and Elk Lake. Ask to see our video! Fourth of July renters - please see the Rates page for specific on dates and rates.

Enjoyable first trip to Torch Lake!
We enjoyed our first trip to Torch Lake! The cute little cottage we stayed in was well cleaned and had views of Torch Lake even from the kitchen window. There was a walk-able beach close-by, that had a swing that the kids loved and even waves that the dog enjoyed. Most nights we enjoyed a bonfire in the well maintained backyard.
Wonderful Eight Night Stay
I stayed with my husband, two year old and dog. We thought it was a perfect location and sized house for us.
They just got new carpet and that was wonderful! We were thankful for the air in one room as there was a couple of really hot days. We all slept together in that room!
We spent a lot of time in alden which is a very cute town. Got a coffee and muffin every morning and walked to the park! We did a lot of fishing at the lighthouse as well.
The house is close to a swimming beach which is very nice. My husband and I got swimmers itch from there which stunk, but my son didn’t!
We also rented a boat through Northaire and that was a perfect way to see the water.
Katy was always responsive and extremely understanding when we asked lots of questions.
You won’t regret staying!
We had a very nice stay. The cottage was cute and very clean. It was very peaceful and relaxing, we loved it.
