Beautiful secluded wooded acre lot on the Torch River as it widens approaching Torch Lake. A short boat ride or paddle up river to the famous Torch Lake Sand Bar. The location is an ideal home base for boating and fishing the beautiful Elk River Chain of Lakes with a DNR boat launch just 1/3 of a mile down the street. You can keep your boat docked just 35 feet from the front door while being less than a mile from the amazing coral blue waters of Torch Lake to the north and Lake Skegemog and Elk Lake to the south.
Downtown Alden is just 5 miles away, a quick boat or bike ride away.
If you enjoy gambling or are looking for some evening entertainment the Turtle Creek Casino is just a 15 minute drive away. One of our favorite destinations is Short's Brewery in Bellaire where you can sample some of the best brew's anywhere and get a growler to bring back and enjoy on the deck while bird watching or having a fire by the river's edge.
There are some great restaurants in and on the way to Elk Rapids which is 20 minutes away by car or take the boat and dock at the Elk River marina.
It is 20 miles to Traverse City where you can enjoy many opportunities for dining, entertainment and more.
The A-frame is ideal for kicking back, relaxing on the rivers edge and experiencing the peaceful tranquility of Northern Michigan in a private wooded setting that is hard to find an inland lake.
