Overview

Torch Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Ski resorts nearby, waterfront, sunset views, sleeps 10, 2 full baths

Find four season fun including nearby skiing, tubing, snowboard, or snowmobiling.

Mix and match your skiing and winter fun and avoid the high price of slope side lodging. Now throw in a sunset lake view and a fireplace for Mom and the less avid skiers. You can be right in the middle of the northern Michigan ski resort area. 30 minutes southeast to Shanty Creek and Schuss Mountain, 45 minutes east to Boyne Mountain, an hour north to Nub Knob and Boyne Highlands, 40 minutes south to Traverse City's Holiday Mountain and only 30 minutes from quaint Charlevoix and Mt McSauba.

Stunning sunsets, beautiful shoreline, surrounded by trees! Enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Michigan.

The house sits on a point that provides panoramic views of Lake Michigan to the north and Grand Traverse Bay to the south. The point seems to draw the birds (for you bird watchers). It is located just north of the village of Eastport which is at the northern tip of Torch Lake.

Enjoy a fire during the cool nights in the lakeside fire pit or the dramatic two story fireplace.

A private sandy area with fire pit is located near the house. A large deck and covered porch overlook the lake.

The beach has pebbles and sand with a bottom of smooth rocks (aqua shoes are recommended).

There are two tandem kayaks that can be used to enjoy the bay.

The home is 'like new' and completely remodeled and painted with 2,500' square feet of living space.

There are three bedrooms and a 'dormitory' plus sleeper sofa.

The kitchen is new with stainless steel appliances including dishwasher. A gorgeous quartz countertop island with double bowl sink provides a dramatic lake view. The icemaker allows ice to be moved right to your cooler.

A washer and dryer is provided on the main floor for convenience.

All the modern conveniences are provided including high speed internet and cable TV (cable TV may not be available in the off season).

To keep you cool there are seven ceiling fans and a one ton window air conditioner upstairs (no central air conditioning).

The 'double' lot offers 200 feet of private shoreline and access to miles of beach to walk and enjoy.

Just 250 yards south is a private neighborhood park area with 75' of sandy beach and a small creek for the kids to enjoy.

The bay is shallow which makes it great for young children.

The master bedroom is a large loft area and the only room upstairs. It overlooks the family room and dining area (and the lake). It has a private reading area. The master bath offers a relaxing whirlpool tub. The second bedroom and den/bedroom are on the main floor. Dormitory sleeping is provided on the lower level in the 'rec room'.

There is a small grocery store with a great deli (and delicious summer BBQ) only 5 minutes away.

Fine dining is available at the nearby Rowe Inn - one of Michigan's most acclaimed restaurants.

There is plenty of parking including space for a boat trailer. There is a boat launch 5 minutes away.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at this beautiful house with a gorgeous view of Grand Traverse Bay. Spending time outside on the deck listening to the waves was so relaxing, and the sunsets were stunning!! Even when the weather turned stormy it was exciting to watch the clouds and lightening roll over the bay. Seeing a bald eagle fly in front of the house was an incredible experience.
The interior of the house was lovely, and just as depicted or even better than shown in the pictures. One of the highlights was definitely cooking in the updated kitchen - everything we needed was provided.
Working with the owner was very easy, and he was very accommodating when we wanted to extend our trip. The security deposit was returned promptly.
We had such a great time that we've already booked our next trip up north!

Your lake home is LOVELY!!! We were happy from the moment we arrived! And while your pictures are great, they don't do it justice! Our large family quickly settled in, and felt our every need anticipated! We could not have been happier with our accommodation and could see the love and attention you put into your home there! The kitchen was great! As was the basement, what a bonus! The boys loved a little x-box time each day! We ALL loved lounging on the porch... and the feet and feet and feet of soft sand was to perfect for the little kids. =) And the "big kids" loved relaxing by the fire-pit late into the night! It was a fantastic week all around! How fortunate we feel to have found your home! Honestly, it is beautiful and packed with everything we could want. Three generations found things perfectly suited to each! How often does THAT happen? :-P ME... I mostly loved watching the sun set listening to the waves lap the shore. =)

Gorgeous vacation home

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed the stay and as such came away with nothing but positives.The kitchen/dining area is such a great layout(as is the entire home) and became a wonderful gathering spot as well as the large deck. We had a few rousing games of air hockey in the lower loft, built several bonfires and BBQ'd every evening. Our grand-daughter loved trying to skip stones when not building sand castles on the lovely beach. Speaking of stones, our son went on a hunt near the shoreline and was able to find a few Petoskey stones. He was so pleased you'd think he'd discovered Blackbeard's hidden treasure chest.
Bob is a very kind and accommodating owner.

Highly recommended!

Amazing lake home

  • 5 of 5
We can not say enough wonderful things about this lake home! From making the initial contact with the owner to his follow up after the trip, everything was better than expected. The home was beautiful and the view was breath taking. The huge kitchen was completely upgraded and very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The lake & beach were private & peaceful. The house has many accommodations that one usually doesn't find at a rental. Kayaks, volleyball net, water toys, coffee grinder, 3D TV, air hockey table to name a few. Please be assured that you will love this rental. We loved it so much that we already gave a deposit for our next trip!

Great Luxury at a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
This place has everything. The owners do a lot to make it a enjoyable stay in every way. I would recommend this place to anyone. Right on the lake, they have kayaks, a canoe, and inflatables so you can spend your entire day out on the water. If the weather doesnt work out, they have an xbox with a kinect, a couple TVs, couches, a brand new kitchen with an open concept. The back deck is very nice, with a large bbq. Also has 2 full bathrooms. This place has lots of room. Even with 10 people, there was room to spare, we never felt crowded. Also, there is a store not even a 5 minute car ride down the road so you wont run out of supplies.
