Another amenity to this property is access to a swim beach on beautiful Torch Lake approx. 2 blocks away. Bring a kayak, canoe, bike, and shoes for walking as you are surrounded by a variety opportunities for outdoor fun. Located 20 miles south of Charlevoix, 12 miles north of Elk Rapids, 25 miles from Traverse City, and 10 miles to Central Lake.Even though you may be sitting in the midst of a retail operation, the cottage offers indoor privacy and a small outdoor patio area, beautifully decorated. In the summer season, Thursday-Friday- Saturday evenings provide you with outdoor live music on the patio between the Cafe and the Cottage until 9:00 pm which is open to the general public for light fare dining with beer and wines available.

Why Andrea Otto chose Torch Lake

Located on US 31 North, this is a great rental for the traveler who would like to take off on day trips and visit all the Grand Traverse region has to offer.

We have rented many VRBO properties in North and South America and in Europe. This house was one of the cleanest and most comfortable. The house was well equipped and everything was as advertised. We anticipated a significant noise level due to the location, however, we found the house to be very quiet even when customers were near the house.. Needless to say, the grounds were full of flowers and were very pleasant to walk around. The cafe was conveniently located a short distance away from the house as was the parking. The nursery staff were always available during the day and were very friendly and helpful.

This property is located on the grounds of Pine Hill Nursery. This is a beautiful nursery and a dream location for any gardener or nature lover. In the spring, summer and fall there is a café and wine bar out your back door. Even though you are at a business, the house it very private and quiet. In the winter the nursery is closed and it is the most peaceful and serene place. Walk, snowshoe or cross country ski out the back door and around the grounds or 1/2 mile down to Torch Lake (one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.) Enjoy awesome views of the stars and sometimes the northern lights if you are lucky. If you love to golf, you are less than 5 minutes to Agaming and within 30 minutes of countless other golf courses. If you love the beach you can relax at the neighbor hood access on Torch Lake or head 10 minutes south to Elk Rapids where you will find the most beautiful lake Michigan beaches around. Elk Rapids is the cutest little town home to fabulous shopping, restaurants, art galleries a movie theater and much more. Just a couple miles north you will find Torch Lake Village and a small grocery store, café, marina, public park and nature preserve. Stop by the numerous farm stands within just a few miles of this property for fresh, local produce and products. You can even pick your own fruit when it is in season. This property is between Traverse City and Charlevoix. It is an excellent location for wine tours, skiing, fall color tours, golfing, boating. Charlevoix is a sweet town to visit for shopping and dining. Traverse City is the perfect place for a night out on the town or just about anything else you would want to do. There are area festivals every week in the summer. The Vasa Trail is located about 20 minutes south (near Traverse City) and a destination for bikers and cross country skiers. Shanty Creek and Schuss Mountain (in Bellaire, 22 miles away) are beautiful ski and golf resorts.

Notes:
This cottage is a charming stay, access to Torch Lake, and at a very affordable price point due to the uniqueness of it's location. Yes, you have to tolerate a business going on around you, but we hope to make it as pleasant and enriching as possible, especially if you enjoy gardening! Great location to come and go from at half the price of waterfront. Sightseeing, day trips, taking part in the local communities and their summer festivals/events are so numerous you cannot get to them all.
