Overview

About the property

PUR MICHIGAN"S BEST COLOR FROM OUR DECK, SUNSETS, HOT TUB, 140 ACRES WITH VIEWS!

IMAGINE, laying out in the blazing sun on the famous Torch Lake Sandbar by day and counting the stars from our fresh clean hot tub by night.

Why pay the high price of shoreline rent when we have the perfect spot for Torch Lake fun plus a pontoon and a boat dock for your own boat!!

Honeymoons, Reunions, Family Get-a-ways! Our log chalet's hillside setting is the prettiest and most peaceful vacation rental in the south Torch Lake area.

Cozy and romantic enough for couples and large enough for groups and families. The shaded large deck overlooks magnificant sunsets and tree tops from a spacious and inviting deck.

Many 5 star reviews best describe this log chalet rental on 140 private acres during all 4 seasons! Nestled in the hills near the south end of the beautiful clean waters of Torch Lake we offer privacy, comfort, and great memories!!

Our Number one Attraction is the World's Third Most Beautiful Lake, TORCH LAKE and our Famous Sandbar!! We are 10 minutes from Turtle Creek Casino and 20 minutes from Traverse City with Meijers shopping between the two.

We are a day's outing to the most popular Sleeping Bear Dunes, or the Big Mac Bridge and Mackinac Island. Traverse City and the Turtle Creek Casino is 10-20 minutes away.

How long has it been since you counted the constellations on a clear, bright starry night? Or listened to the howls of coyotes in a distance or seen a family of wild turkey strolling by?

Isn't it time you and your loved ones escape out of the city lights and come up to our northern lights for an extended weekend or even for a week long break.

Our log chalet is cozy enough for honeymooners or couple retreats, (we have many) yet large enough for family and friends!

All year long, the Torch Lake/ Traverse City area is buzzing with events, festivals, concerts, restaurants, wineries,and shopping!

Our detailed cabin is furnished with all the necessities inside including quality cookware, linens and towels! You will never run out of hot water for showers because we have an on demand hot water heater. We clean the hot tub and its filters between each renter and fill it will hot water before you arrive. We also include fire wood to roast those marshmellows while watching the panoramic sunsets from our cedar swing!

You can rent our pontoon for the day for fishing, playing, or relaxing on the famous Torch Lake sandbar by taking advantage of our multiple day pontoon discounts or dock your own boat at a rented dock space just for our guests!

On our property, there are many walking trails and places to sit to take in the views or engage in conversation with your friends. We have even provided a space just for sun bathing or book reading.

We hope you will consider coming to our secluded chalet with a view. We have many return visitors...check out our reviews! Come to Torch Lake, stay and play! Thanks for reading. God Bless!

Thanks for letting us stay in your charming chalet! We had such a great time hiking seven bridges and sleeping bear dunes. We enjoyed visiting the nearby lakes- though still frozen. Sunset with hot tubs are always nice too! We hope to be back soon!!

Quiet cabin off the beaten track

  • 5 of 5

Two couples came for a quiet weekend and this was a great spot for it. Everything we needed was there. Lots of land to explore, large deck, nice grill for cooking out. Owners were available for questions. We didn't read the ad correctly and thought it was on the water, which it isn't but it isn't far from a boat launch.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. Got to see deer in the driveway and backyard every morning of our stay. Hot tub was perfect, and you couldn't ask for nicer hosts. We will definitely be returning.

Clean, rustic

  • 5 of 5

Dale and Mike were very accommodating and made everything extremely easy. We were able to rent their boat with the cabin, which was super nice and new and the price was great! The wifi worked great. We loved that the cabin had a great hot tub, air conditioning, and was extremely close to the river which brought us to the lake! The only thing that we would change is the amount of mirrors in the cabin. Normally this wouldn't be as much of an issue, but we had a big group of girls and needed more getting ready space than the 1 bathroom and 1 mirror! Otherwise great. Great people to rent from.
