PERFECT RETREAT COTTAGE ON BEAUTIFUL LAKE MICHIGAN

Torch Lake House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage On The Shores Of Lake Michigan

Are you feeling stressed with your life; are your children driving you batty; do you need a bit of a time-out from your significant other; do you want a quiet place to read, paint, write, think, or just be; do you and your significant other need a romantic getaway? If you answered yes to any of the above, then our cottage is the perfect place for you.

Nestled amongst 10 acres of forest, the cottage sits on the shores of beautiful, picturesque Lake Michigan. It is small and quaint, simply and beautifully furnished. It has one bedroom and a fold out couch in the living room. It can sleep up to 4 people. The bathroom is fairly large with a walk in shower. Linens and beach towels are provided.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc. Everything you need to cook your favorite meals.

The property is located within walking distance of Torch Lake Nature Preserve which contains many miles of trails. Walk, jog, whatever you like, you can do this on the road, on wooded trails or along the miles and miles of shore on Lake Michigan.

The cottage is located off of highway 31, a short distance (about a 30 minute drive) north of Traverse City. Just north of the cottage are the towns of Charlevoix (about 17 miles) and Petosky (about 30 miles). Also close to Harbor Springs, Elk Rapids, Macinac City and Island and numerous other small towns in the Northern Michigan area.

Nightlife can be around a bonfire and s'mores on the beach overlooking the beautiful sunsets, or it can be dinning, gambling, or clubbing in the nearby casinos. You choose the pace.

If you have a boat and want to bring that up with you, close to the cottage, there are two public boat accesses. One to Lake Michigan, and one to Torch Lake. Torch Lake is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and if you have not seen it, you should. If you don't have a boat, you can spend the day at the public park playing basketball, having a picnic, and swimming in the clear waters of Torch Lake. All within walking distance of the cottage.

The winter is also a perfect time to be at the cottage. The snow is beautiful and there is nothing like a stroll through the forest trails as the snow gently falls around you engulfing you in a world of peace, quiet and a white wonderland. In fact, winter is one of our favorite times to be at the cottage.

We rent the cottage out only once per month, so book your stay early.

We are Tim and Sonya, married and living in Dallas Texas with our four children. We are both from Michigan and both attended MSU. We have vacationed in northern Michigan for the past 28 years, visiting family who live there.

Sonya Hebden purchased this house in 2008

We purchased this property as a future retirement home for us and a future vacation destination for our children and their (future) children. The property is so picturesque, quiet, and perfect for slowing down our hectic, fast-paced lives.

The location of the cottage is incredible. We love that we can walk for miles and miles (either direction) along the shores of Lake Michigan. The lake is always different and we love hunting for Petosky stones. The cottage is so cute and quaint, very well built and simple and elegant. Perfect for a relaxing, no fuss life style.

What a wonderful vacation!

What a great vacation we had at this property. It starts with the prompt & professional correspondence from the property owner. Once you get there, you're met with a clean, beautiful property in great condition. The view of Lake Michigan is phenomenal- and of course you can't beat Torch Lake! I think any time you're in the market for a rental property, one of the biggest concerns is how accurate of a depiction the owner creates with his/her descriptions of the property online. I'm here to tell you that this property is exactly how it's portrayed- perhaps better! WILL go back!

This property was perfect! The accommodations and location were excellent. The property was clean and the owners were helpful with providing information about the area. The owners were also quick to respond to any questions that we had prior to our arrival. We hope to return to the property again.

If you are looking for a clean, quiet and relaxing place to stay, look no further! This place is awesome! The owner is so helpful. She answered all of my questions right away and the place far exceeded our expectations. We had a really nice bonfire on the lake. The lake is just 100 steps from this nice cottage. If you are on the porch, you can hear the waves:) We hope to return!

This cottage exceeded our expectations in every way! It was cozy, clean & beautifully decorated. The location is private, quiet and the beach can't be beat! We've stayed in several rental homes but this one stood out, especially due to the kindness and flexibility of the owners. Can't thank Sonya enough! This was our first trip to Northern Michigan and we will definitely be back!!
