CHEERY COTTAGE, NEAR SOUTH END TORCH LAKE, SLEEPS SIX, NOT ON THE LAKE

Torch Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Relax, take in the sunrise and the waking birds on our awesome, tree level wrap around porch. The yard is big enough to play games such as Frisbee or practice your chipping. Our neighbors are friendly and welcoming. We hope you enjoy your stay at our home away from home as much as we do. If you choose to stay during the summer we will probably be somewhere close on our boat on one of the lakes in the chain or a marina on Grand Traverse Bay.

Bright and cheery cottage built into the hill with view of beautiful south end of Torch Lake year round. Our family cottage, we visit it throughout the year. We are sure your family will find it affordable, convenient and close to everything you could ever want to do up north during any season. It is decorated in bright colors, has a Pergo floor in common area. Is exudes 'welcome' and 'relax'.

You may view all of our pictures via Amy's Picasa Web album by scrolling down to the 'Links to more information': section of this page.

In the past we have successfully rented to such groups as a family of 6, a group of 4 golfing buddies, a group of 4 women taking a break from the guys to shop and wine tour. A group of women on a relaxing Yoga retreat. A woman and her two adult daughters. A couple of newlyweds. A group of 6 adults (3 couples) who were sending their children to camp Hayo-Went-Ha. A pair of couple friends who boated and played on Torch Lake for their first time. If you are a similar group, we welcome you.

This is not a good place to have a loud party. We intend to rent to families or couples and are especially well suited for such groups. We avoid renting to large groups of young adults. If you are a group of hard charging sand bar stallions then our place is not a good match for your group. Representing yourself to be a small group and then breaching our contract by inviting a bunch of your adult friends to join you overnight, will result in a termination of that contract upon which time you will be made to vacate the premises without receiving your money back.

We have no hangups about race, religion or sexual orientation so please feel safe and free to contact us with your concerns. We want the 'best' renters so we try to offer the 'best' to you.

Amy and I live in the Grand Rapids area. Amy is an elementary music teacher and I am a retired tool and die engineer. We are also entertainers for weddings, private parties and corporate events. The name of our group is The Life of the Party. Amy picked this picture because she looks great, I was playing it up and look ridiculous(oh well).

John Amos purchased this house in 2002

When we got married we sold Amy's house and decided to purchase a cottage. This one was the first one we looked at in our price range. After seeing it, all others paled in comparison. It is the first property we owned together and is very special to us. It is everything we could ever want in a cottage and thus we would like to share it and the beautiful area with others.

Very close to everything one could ever want to do up north and yet affordable. It is private, but not too private. Close to all the action, but not too close. Easy to keep up and yet it has a yard and is in a neighborhood that used to be an apple orchard.

Notes:
We believe that we have the best tasting water anywhere. We have well water and I would put it up against any bottled water for taste, We are in a great location for 'anything' up north, We are in a quiet neighborhood which is great for sleeping, We have bird feeders and attract some very nice varieties such as Baltimore Orioles Indigo Buntings Hummingbirds Purple Finches and many most of the more popular birds as well,
