Our home is a totally restored 2 story house located in the quaint little town of Rapid City. We are just two miles south of beautiful Torch Lake (recognized as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world) and just 2 miles away from the Torch River Marine where you can access Torch Lake, Lake Skegemog, Elk Lake, and Clam Lake. Not only can you put your boat in at Torch River Marine, you can also arrange for them to store it for you during your visit. They also rent boats and canoes.
Our Township has 7 public access sites near the sand bar of Torch Lake for swimming. The nearby town of Alden (3 miles away) also has a boat ramp and swimming area as well as several unique shops and dining establishments. We are also just minutes away from world class golf courses, vineyards, snow skiing at Shanty Creek or Boyne, snowmobile trail heads (you can snowmobile from our front door), gaming (both live and the table kind), and a host of other activities.
We are only 20 minutes from Traverse City, home of the National Cherry Festival. Travel just a lttle farther to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which was just voted by GMA as the 'Most Beautiful Place in America'. Join us for Habor Days in nearby Elk Rapids, the National Morel Mushroom Festival in nearby Boyne City, or the National Trout Festival in Kalkaska. Don't forget about the Fall colors in late September and early October or deer season in November.
The master bedroom has a king size bed and flat panel TV. The large master bath is wheelchair accessible with a roll-in shower. The second bedroom has both a queen and full size bed. The large upstairs bedroom is perfect for kids with 2 full size beds, a futon, and TV. The kitchen and dining room has everything you need for enjoying a meal after a full day of activities. We also have a newly added spacious family room. Our large deck with gas grill is perfect if you don't want to mess up the kitchen; or, you can always walk down to the end of the street to the local ice cream & sandwich grill. Don't forget about our extra large fire pit if you want to roast marshmallows. The house is perfect for 6-8 people who want to be near everything.
