About The Owner
My family has shared a lifetime of memories on this shoreline. We have recently found that we are unable to enjoy our lake as much as we would like. It is my sincere hope that many new families will be able to create the type of wonderful memories of time together that I cherish.
Why The Owner chose Torch Lake
This home was designed and built by my father T.P. and for him it was all about Torch Lake. Almost every room in the home has a view of the water. It is carefully tucked in to the natural woods with a nice open shoreline. It was his dream and I can only hope that you will enjoy it half as much as we do.
What makes this house unique
Torch Lake is a part of a 65 mile chain of lakes including Torch, Elk, Skegamog, Bellaire, the Grass River Nature Preserve, and various connecting lakes and streams. This allow access by boat to a variety of towns, shopping, and restaurants. Everything is available by water from a burger and fries to fine dining. An afternoon boat ride into Alden for ice cream cones is one of our families favorites.
