Torch Lake: The best place to be in the Summer: Torch Lake is one of the largest lakes in Michigan with surface area of 18,770 acres and 40 miles of shoreline. It is a fabulous all-sports lake as well as great fishing lake ( lake trout, whitefish, small mouth). The beautiful color of the lake will remind you of the Caribbean!
Torch Lake is connected by rivers to Lake Bellaire, Clam Lake, Lake Skegemog, and Elk Lake. At the South end of Torch Lake there is the famous sand bar. The water level at the sandbar ranges from waist to only ankle deep. On hot summer days there are hundreds of boats anchored here!.This is a great place to wade in the water, play Frisbee, throw a football, visit with friends and enjoy a cold beverage while you work on your tan.
On the south end of Torch, is quaint town of Alden with shops and festivals. East of the lake is Bellaire with a micro brewery, grocery store and restaurants.
The area: Golf at Shanty Creek (4 wonderful courses), swim, boat, sightsee - you'll run out of time before you run out of things to do. Enjoy the local restaurants and shopping, and visit the great places in Bellaire. There is a movie theatre, video store, grocery store (Glens), some cool shops (such as Sassy Sunflower), coffee shops (Moka) and restaurants. One of our favorites is Lulu’s – and don’t miss the Bellaire Bar next door. In the resort, try Lakeview – it really does have a fantastic view of Lake Bellaire, or Ivan’s over at Schuss Village. Don't miss the, Dockside on Torch Lake i- a fun place to eat with a great setting on the lake. A few more miles will get you to Alden (don’t miss Higgins for the best ice cream around), or Traverse City, Petoskey and Charlevoix.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We cannot even begin to tell you how much we all loved the vacation house on Torch Lake. The home was absolutely perfect for our family. (The photos do not do it justice)
We were all quite sad when the week came to an end. Thank you for all of your suggestions...we loved Dockside, Mrs. Pete's and Shorts. We also tried Pearls! It was fantastic as well. We even had pizza delivered to our boat from Fabianos!
The house is lovely! We had a wonderful family get-away. You made it very easy from start to finish!
