ALDEN THAYER LAKE COTTAGE ('PINE')

Alden Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Lake Front Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bathroom, 4-6 Sleeps

This cute and clean '1940s' era cottage is much the way you would have found it mid-century: no TV, no phone, lots of clean air and water, nesting loons, and the good company you've traveled with. The cottage has one bedroom with a double bed, another with two singles, and a futon in the main living area. This Thayer Lake beachfront cottage shares 150 feet of prime frontage with its sister cottage, 'Oak' (VRBO listing 57002). The cottage sits 400 feet back off the road. Thayer Lake is a no-wake lake perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and relaxed enjoyment of nature. There are both sunny and shady areas along the waterfront and a lakeside fire pit for making S'mores. The lake access is shallow and gradual, good for children and wading. Within one mile of the cottage are two public accesses to Torch Lake, one of Michigan's largest and certainly most beautiful sandy-bottomed lakes.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

LOVED IT! QUIET, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY - CUTE LITTLE TOWN MOMENTS AWAY

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I were looking for a last minute getaway to do some fishing and get some r&r. Helped to be off season, but it being a now wake lake made it exceptionally quiet. The fishing was awesome - even I caught quite a few. We had a few 70-80 degree weather which was great for a dip in the lake then all the way down to 40 degrees calling for a fire in the fireplace. Also - I rate most my vacations on the terrain, scenery and amount of traffic it provides my runs... absolutely breathtaking to come over the hill on Paige to the view of Torch... Loved it!

AMAZING STAY

  • 5 of 5
These cottages were amazing! Just what we were looking for! Close to Torch Lake, Thayer Lake was great for fishing and kayaking. Owners keep them very clean and they are available if needed, but they don't bother you at all. Our family would love to make these cottages a yearly vacation.
