Te Papa (Our Place) Cottage has provided our family with happy memories for 4 generations. Its tranquil surroundings have provided a constant haven in our lives. We are delighted to share it's charm with our guests while we are living in Chicago to be near our 2 new grandchildren.

Frank DeMann purchased this cottage in 1965

Torch Lake offers so many adventures, from cruising the Chain of Lakes, to visiting the sandbar. We love the old growth stand of trees between the cottage and the road that makes the cottage quiet and secluded. We see deer, foxes, and many birds from the back patio. The view of the lake from the livingroom and deck is stunning!

GREAT WEEK AT TORCH LAKE

This cabin provided everything we could have asked for to enjoy the Torch Lake experience. The cabin was up to date and very comfortable. The location was great for access to everything Torch Lake has to offer. The view is priceless! Our memories here will last forever!!

Very clean and well equipped cottage. The little things went along way to make our trip special such as the solar lights near the dock, the boat hoist, gas grill, ice maker in the refridgerator, etc.

COUPLE FROM CHICAGO

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a quiet week on the lake. Beautiful early morning sunrises from the deck overlooking the lake as smooth as glass. The cottage is comfortable and well maintained. Pretty back yard. We for a boat ride down Torch River and were rewarded by seeing a day old fawn and it's mother. Excellent restaurants in Elk Rapids a very short ride away. The water is amazing, we could see the bottom on 30 feet of water! I would recommend this cottage for couples and families who would like that "Up North" experience.

INCREDIBLE WEEK WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

  • 5 of 5
Last summer my family and I had the opportunity to escape for a week and among the 10-15 cottages that we considered, this was the cleanest, had the best location, and the owner was great to work with. In having two children (7 and 3 years old), the swimming was great due to the low boat traffic directly in front of the cottage and the gradual drop off.

Perhaps the biggest perks of the cottage are the location and boat lift. Having a boat to travel the lake, hit The Dockside restaurant (10 minute boat ride), and spend time at the sand bar (5 minutes), makes your time at Torch that much more enjoyable. For other cottages I would hesitate to bring my own boat up due to the fact you have to tie it off at night and have nowhere to escape from bad weather and big waves. Here, there is a boat lift that is made available allowing you to be at ease if big waves are part of your stay.

We intend to stay again this July and I would recommend this cottage to any family looking for a great week!
