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'.
