The Torch Lake Family Cottage
"The Torch Lake Family Cottage" is one of two, "Torch Lake Lakefront Properties" we have available on Torch and it is available on a weekly basis in the summer, a weekend basis in the spring and fall and a monthly basis in the winter.
The "Torch Lake Family Cottage" is a cross between Americana and a Frank Lloyd Wright look-alike, with beautiful redwood siding and decks, 4 Bedrooms, (sleeps up to 8 guests comfortably and two more on a pull out bed couch for TEN if necessary) two full baths and is more of a fully furnished home rather than what you might think of as a "Cottage." The property is located just three miles north of the Torch River Bridge, on the South West Side of this 19 mile long lake, in a private area with no highways nearby, on a quiet and spacious 150' of pristine Torch Lake frontage and this home is always nice and Clean.
This property offers a swim dock, mooring buoys for those who bring boats, a USTA Regulation Tennis court, fresh water swimming, great snorkeling, a large kitchen, dining and living room area with plenty of counter space and a great view. We also have a gas grill, toys for the water, fire-pit, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and the best location on the lake for boat access to the closest lakeside restaurants, Alden, The Dockside Restaurant, the Sand Bar, many tributaries and the nature preserves found along the Torch, Clam and Grass Rivers for Day Trips by car or by boat.
Several different marinas on Torch Lake offer Pontoon or Boat Rentals and we will provide a complete list AND we have a canoe and paddle boat for shoreline jaunts when the lake is still.
We are located 4 miles by Water via boat to the Sand Bar.
This stately property is affordable, always found completely clean, very comfortable, it does not have any musty or unpleasant "Old Cottage Smells" and it is a great location for sunrises, moon rises, weather and boat watching and with no light pollution the star gazing is absolutely amazing.

Though the Summer is our most popular season, we frequently rent during the Fall Color Season, Wintertime Snowmobile groups come, it's a great location for Family Christmas, Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Ice Fishing and a affordable base for skiing at nearby Boyne Mountain and Shanty Creek Resort. It's also a great home base for bicyclists!
Though we do have a 7 night minimum stay requirement, some people rent for a night or two more than 7 nights and leave a 3 or 4 night opening before the next scheduled renter's arrival. In these instances, we would be willing to rent up to a three night minimum stay for less than our 7 Night requirement.
If you need more room we also rent our fully modern and again clean guest house next door and its called the Torch Lake Guest House. (sleeps 4 in 2 beds and possibly a 5th on a couch) See Listing for the Torch Lake Guest House in this website.
