Cottage (650 sq. ft.) in Rapid City, MI
0 miles from Torch Lake
Our cozy family cottage has 100' of private waterfront on beautiful Torch Lake. The cottage has housed our family visits to Torch Lake for generations, and we'd like to share our little escape with others. Torch Lake is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and with one look into the crystal clear blue water you'll see why. We are fortunate to have a very gradual increase in depth for several hundred feet out into the water, creating a striking sight where the drop-offs signal the deeper blue depths of Torch. We have a dock that extends almost 90' out to the lake, with a 12'x12' platform at the end for enjoying some time in the sun. At the end of the dock it's not even 3' deep! Just down the road is the Torch River Bridge, near the famous Torch Lake Sandbar and Torch River. Just across the lake is the town of Alden. We're making frequent updates to the cottage and the property. In 2009 we made significant renovations, completely modernizing the kitchen, bathroom, and living areas (but taking care to retain the old cottage look and feel). In 2014, a clothes dryer and mooring anchor were added. And in 2015, we rebuilt the stone wall on the lakeshore and added sand to our small beach area out front. Golf Information: There are a number of top golf courses in the area, including designs by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player. Some of the more popular locations include Shanty Creek Resorts with 'The Legend', designed by Arnold Palmer, as well as 3 other courses and Grand Traverse Resort & Spa with 'The Bear' by Jack Nicklaus and 'The Wolverine' by Gary Player. Boating Information: Torch Lake is a great place to water-ski, go tubing, and do all sorts of other water sports. We have a 90'' long dock that can be used to access boats, although the water is still shallow at the end! Public accesses are close by. We have a mooring anchor that can be used, and local nearby marinas also offer overnight slip and trailered storage options that our guests have used. Area Festivals: Harbor Days --- Interlochen Summer Arts Festival --- Petoskey Festival on the Bay --- Suttons Bay Art Festival --- Northport-Leelanau Peninsula Wine And Food Festival --- Suttons Bay Jazzfest --- Charlevoix Venetian Festival --- just to name a few!!

On beautiful Torch Lake, the Great Outdoors Lodge is a luxury home which is perfect for a family or corporate retreat for up to 14 people. There are a total of 6 bedrooms and 7 baths. Three of those bedrooms are suites including Jacuzzi tubs, walk-in showers, and granite sinks. There is also a Jack and Jill suite joining two rooms. The construction inside is beautiful yellow pine wall paneling with custom hewed pine logs for columns. The views of Torch Lake from all front facing rooms is phenomenal. Perfect views of the turquoise waters Torch Lake is known for. On a clear night the family can sit around the fire pit or sit in the hammock and look at some of the clearest skies in North America. The Northern Lights also play random visits. The living area features a fireplace with a rustic pine mantel and one of the most comfortable sectional sofa I've been on. There is a full kitchen with stainless appliances, granite counter-tops, cherry wood cabinets, Bosch dishwasher, and convection/microwave ovens and a freestanding stainless gas stove. The downstairs has a finish area featuring a magnificent full bar with refrigerator, ice maker, and LED lighted shelves with 7 bar stools to entertain. The other side is a family room for watching late night movies or perfect for sports fans. Guests can also set up on-site tables and use this room for accomodating a corporate retreat working center. The dock leads to a sitting area for sunbathers or boat watchers. The sand is better than the infamous sandbar. Look at the pictures and see how clear the water is and the sugar sand bottom. At less than 3 feet, it is perfect for walking around or swimming in the deeper water a few feet away. The predominately western winds are protected from the ridge line that runs to the west of the property, so the cove is usually calmer than other places on the lake. The house has high speed wifi throughout and offers all premium cable channels. Televisions are in practicallly every room. This is a wonderful home, worthy of any group wanting to experience Torch Lake as a family or a group of colleagues. We've put premium decorations throughout the home to make everyone's visit even more enjoyable. Everything you need is here.

This cottage rental will create vacation memories you will never forget! Boats are welcome and we have enough room to park your trailer. Boats can't be attached to the dock for any length of time, as winds can pull the dock right out of the ground and set it and your boat afloat. We offer a mooring buoy for your convenience (1500 lbs of concrete anchor. You are responsible for assessing if this is enough to hold your boat) and that the equipment is in good shape. The dock, lifts, and buoy are available from June-September. Outside of these months, please ask me if it will be available for your stay. The nearest public boat launches are the Clam Lake Access (6 minute drive from the cottage- access is onto Clam Lake, and it's a short ride down onto Torch) and the Alden Township Access (10 minute drive from the cottage). Guests should bring their own beach towels, as cottage towels are not to be removed from the house. Please bring your own bathroom amenities. Firewood for the fire pit and charcoal for the BBQ are not provided. The cottage is all yours for the duration of your stay. The outside spaces and amenities, such as dock, patio, and BBQ, are shared with a small guest house on site (up to 4 guests or the owners).

Walk to downtown Alden, to the historical Train Depot Park and Museum, up and around the preserve on Coy Mountain, and walk to the stunning Torch Lake shore and the nearby beach -- all from this circa 1870s historic Victorian home. Enjoy the amenities home in this three bedroom, two bath, two story Alden village house. Three bedrooms (2 with Queen Beds and 1 with 2 twin beds) and 2 bathrooms (one on the first floor and one upstairs) provide for a comfortable stay for up to 6 people. Fully equipped kitchen allows eating at home if you wish. Dining area choices include in the kitchen or front porch or even the original family dining room. The exterior colors will remind you of the power and depth and beauty of Torch Lake itself. If it's been a few years since you've rented the home, welcome back to the 'new look' of our vacation home in quaint Alden. You will be located just across the main east-shore road from Torch Lake. Locals and visitors know what a great lake Torch is for vacationing, sight-seeing, water-sports (including swimming, boating, kayaking, tubing and more). You'll be just a couple blocks from charming downtown Alden itself and its marina, unique shops and restaurants. And you are at the foot of the 17-acre preserve that is 'Coy Mountain'. Experience beautiful sunsets and Torch Lake views from the kitchen and living room and from the west-facing porch on its settee or swing. Swim in Torch Lake and the connected chain of lakes, Boat through the lower 'chain of lakes' (Torch, Bellaire, Elk, Clam, Skegemog). This smoke-free home is very close to area pro golf courses, Traverse City shopping and the wineries of Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau County. Boyne, Petoskey and Harbor Springs are pleasant round-trip same-day excursions. Sleeping Bear Dunes is just over an hour to the west. You will be staying in what long-time locals still call 'the Chapelle' house, which in the late 1800s and early 1900s was the rooming and guest house for visitors from downstate and from Chicago and Ohio. The home was even larger then, with a 2-story guest room area, connecting at what is now the French doors in the formal dining room. In fact, you'll find the postcard of the home circa 1910 in the postcard collection at the Historical Museum, just across the main road from you, toward the Lake. The double corner lot provides room for children of all ages to play right in your yard, if you and they prefer. Alden is just 25 minutes northeast of Traverse City and the Old Mission Peninsula (and its great wineries) and just 15 minutes southwest of Shanty Creek and Bellaire. A little further west past Traverse City's dining and shopping pleasures are the wineries of the Leelanau Peninsula. Alden is on the southeast shore of beautiful Torch Lake. Your boat will slip easily into and out of Torch Lake at the public marina and slips in town. Then, the entire chain of lakes lie ahead of you to explore and enjoy. No boat of your own? Rentals are available at your choice of local marinas. We can provide their contact numbers, if you wish. If you prefer to stay home some day or evening, prepare your dinner on the Weber charcoal grill and enjoy it in the dining room or as a picnic on the porch or in the nearby park, or up on Coy Mountain. Quiet evenings in on the porch or watching videos or TV are also your entertainment options. Cable TV service is provided with basic 'network' and cable channels. Need to work or keep up with emails? (We know many have to do that) Our High Speed internet modem is provided for your use. Free, secured WiFi is provided. Or you can connect by Ethernet. If you do not have your own connecting cable, please borrow ours. Alden's and surrounding Helena Township's history may be of interest to you. Research on the area tells all that "Helena became famous as a summer resort area in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The principle resorts were Belden Heights at Alden (the are our home is in and you will see the platting on the living room wall); Lone Tree Point and Waswagonik near Clam River; Crystal Beach Hotel on the south end of Torch Lake; and Watson's Inn at Torch River. Many beautiful homes and cottages were built on the shores of Torch and Clam Lakes. The Pere Marquete railroad officials stated that more tickets were sold from Chicago to Alden during the season than to any other point on their line in the resort area. It is still very popular and continues to grow in this respect." Keywords: Vacation House, Summer home, Victorian home, Historic home, Alden, Torch Lake, Traverse City, Bellaire

Cottage (1855 sq. ft.) in Alden, MI
0.2 miles from Torch Lake
NOTE: See VRBO #37825 for reviews! Same property but without the Guest House – perfect for groups of six or fewer. Located on breathtakingly beautiful Torch Lake, this Non-Smoking property has been owned by the same family since the late 1800's. The cottage features natural wood interiors, two wood burning fireplaces, shelves of books, gorgeous views of the lake, coziness, and simplicity, and our additional GUEST COTTAGE within a 20 second walk that sleeps four more people is it's own private cozy sanctuary just a stone's throw from the cottage. Equally suitable for families with young children or older couples, it comfortably sleeps 10 people. We have 150 feet of lakefront, including a sandy beach, a private dock and boat hoist. The lake's sandy bottom is shallow for a fair distance, making it ideal for children. The cottage sits at the end of a private road in a secluded setting thick with mature trees. Its location on the east side of the lake affords spectacular views of the setting sun, especially from the large open air deck which overlooks the lake, and the near-constant lull of water lapping at the shore. There is also a smaller private deck, complete with a hammock swing (one of several on the property), off the master suite. TORCH LAKE was named the third most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic Magazine. The water is so clear you can see the sandy bottom all the way out to the 'drop-off.' On sunny days, the lake has ribbons of turquoise color that are reminiscent of the Caribbean. Torch is the largest lake in Michigan (19 miles long and about two miles wide) and is part of a chain of lakes which allows boating from Elk Rapids to Bellaire. See this article for a good overview and some great pictures: A 15-minute stroll takes you to the small and charming village of ALDEN. It has one of Torch Lake's four public boat ramps, a number of restaurants (both casual and fine cuisine), art galleries, a variety of shops, a playground, a public tennis court, and a library. Green woods and broad fields extend out from the town, offering great cycling and walking. Popular tourist destinations such as Traverse City, Charlevoix, the Leelanau Peninsula, and Petoskey are all within an hour's drive. Should you choose to venture further afield, Interlochen National Music Camp (offering excellent concerts), Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Mackinac Island, or Hartwick Pines are well worth visiting. Because the cottage is a family heirloom, we request great care and consideration from our renters. We also ask that you be very respectful of our neighbors – the cottage is in a residential (not rental) area. For that reason, we don't allow jet skis in order to preserve the peace. Thank you for your understanding!

Imagine the peace of crystal waters at dawn as the fishermen drift to a distant call from a loon, And the first skiers pierce the mirrored silence; Imagine the ripple of the sandy bottom awaiting your touch as the lake comes alive, And the gulls seek refuge from the energy that excites the soul; Imagine all the people discovering the possibilities of this great gift, And as the evening sun begins to quiet the vast waters once again, The glowing colors of the sky illuminate the final skier’s path; Imagine the constellations dancing in the darkness, and campfires dotting the vast shoreline, Disappearing one by one while a night owl announces his reign. - the owner, March 2018
