Another great week up North
We have been coming to Northern Michigan since I was a baby and always look forward to our stays. This time was no exception. The communication was good with Alyssa and the property was as described. The house was perfect for a family of our size (my parents and three siblings, spouses, kids). The beach was perfect for the littles and we enjoyed many hours near the water swimming, enjoying a campfire and just enjoying each other's company. Would definitely recommend this property.
Greene Family Vacation
Great house for our family! Grandkids ages 2-14 had a ball. The lake was perfect for skiing and tubing. We rented a pontoon boat and loved being in a quieter part of the lake. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook and enjoy our meals. If we had any questions Alysse answered my email within minutes. “Chicago Mike” was a great caretaker of the property. Stopped by to check on us and was there in minutes when we had an issue with the lights in one bathroom. Kids enjoyed all of Carols travel pictures. We are a hockey family and the framed pin collection brought back such great memories of all the places our boys played. There was even a pin from our hometown!
Just perfect! Everything we'd hoped for and more. An amazing week on Torch Lake.
Perfect home for a large family. The home had everything we needed and the owner was great to work with. Perfect location convenient to Alden, Elk Rapids, Bellaire and Traverse City. Great outdoor space and extremely clean. We loved it! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

We enjoyed our stay and would rent again.
Beautiful sunsets from private beach and deck
We stayed in this Torch Lake house from July 22-29. Everything was perfect! Our group consisted of my husband and I, our six children and three spouses, and 2 grandchildren. Our four year old grandson spent most of his waking hours in the lake! We had a lovely sandy beach area and the new dock was perfect for sunning and reading. We had fires several nights. The caretaker was very helpful at check in and when I texted her with questions. We golfed and boated and just had a relaxing time. My family is already pestering me to make plans to go there again!
So glad you loved your stay!
Perfect family vacation home! Location! Location! Location!
We had two families, (4) adults + (7) kids - ages 16-8. The beach and lake access was perfect and extremely safe. Water ave. less than 30" deep for 200+ yards! Kitchen was fully equipped, including two refrigerators. Fire pit was a perfect way to end our evenings with S'mores! We rented a Tri-toon boat for the week and easily pulled skiers, tubers, wake boarders. Also rented kayaks and paddle boards and kids enjoyed safely in the shallow water. Spent one morning on an adventure to Sleeping Bear Dunes - a must see! Thoroughly enjoyed the "Lake Life" on Torch Lake!
Randy--so glad you enjoyed your stay!
