We moved to Alden over ten years ago. About five years ago the house next door was for sale, we bought it, and renovated it to offer an affordable, peaceful location to others visiting the area. We have enjoyed meeting our guests who love the area as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

I am originally from Alden and when my husband saw this property he immediately fell in love with it. We were eventually able to buy it, build our own home here, and move to Alden full time. We then bought the house next door and started renting it seasonally.

Listen to Spencer Creek as you're drifting off to sleep and enjoy the tranquility of the setting. We're off the main road yet literally a 2 minute walk to an ice cream cone or cold beer.

Gregg & Carolyn are very gracious hosts, by giving tou different fun ideas of places to visit & really make you feel at home. We had booked the cottage for a four day stay, although the last two days of our stay the weather did not cooperate (rainy/cold) & we were bummed that we weren't able to fully appreciate the true beauty that Torch Lake is. Just as we were all sadly packing our things up Gregg stopped in & offered to let us stay one more night free of charge, due to the weather being so dreary & that day it was suppose to be quite nice. We very excitedly accepted Gregg & Carolyn's offer & eneded up having a picture perfect ending to our family vacation by spending the whole day at Barnes Park on the Grand Traverse Bay & then taking a family stroll after dinner down to the pier to experience the breathtaking view of the sunset over Torch Lake. We will definitely be back for more adventures with our little Pack of Pepper's at creek view cottage in the future!

This Torch Lake Cottage is perfect for a vacation getaway! Alden is a beautiful little town and the cottage is foot steps away from a beautiful view of Torch Lake. We had so much fun during our stay and we are thankful to have stayed at this cottage. The owners are very kind and make you feel right at home!

We had an enjoyable time at this cottage. It was just as we expected based on the photos and descriptions. It is located in a peaceful quiet area, and the creek nearby is a nice feature.The owners of the cottage are very friendly, and offered us tips/suggestions on places to go and things to do. Torch Lake is only a few minutes away by foot. Rent this place!
