WALK TO THE BEACH/SANDBAR IN UNDER 3 MINUTES!!

Alden House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom, Sleeps 9

Situated across the road from Torch Lake this house offers the perfect getaway with 2 public beach/sandbar accesses conveniently located less than a 3 minute walk down the road. This vacation home is just minutes away from downtown Alden (2.3 miles) and Elk Rapids (13 miles).

The house was renovated in the spring of 2013, and the upstairs rooms were added during the summer of 2014. The vacation home includes a full kitchen, with stove, oven, dishwasher, and microwave. Next to the kitchen is a dining area that seats up to 9 people. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer. The master bedroom, at the back of the house, includes a King sized bed and television, there is a walk-in closet and master bathroom attached. A second bedroom offers a closet and a twin-over-full wooden bunk bed. The half bath is located across from the second bedroom. The living room, in the front of the house, gives you a view of the lake. Out the living room door there is a covered porch with lake and pond view. The upstairs offers two more bedrooms, one full bath and a kitchenette with compact fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The woods bedroom towards the back of the house has a queen size bed. The lakeview room with Torch Lake views offers a full bed, reading nook and 42' smart TV.

A charming pond with water lilies is located in front of the house. But perhaps the best part of the house is outback. There is a romantic fire pit with rustic log seating located out the backdoor. The fire pit is the perfect place for smores, camp songs, and ghost stories. A grill is provided for cookouts. The backyard leads right into the forest behind the house. The forest offers miles of trails to explore.

GREAT FOR FALL GOLF

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I spent 5 days in mid-Septmeber at this property. We found the property to be very clean with a well stocked, organized kitchen. The listing description was accurate with regards to location and appearance. Our host and hostess - Christian and Anja - were extremely gracious, and responded quickly to any need or request we had. Since we were mostly intersted in fall golf, Christian recommended a great place to play in Kalkaska called Grandview. The rates were quite reasonable, and the course provided great views and was fun to play! The weather was mild and the trees were just beginning to show their fall colors.

BEAUTIFUL HOME ACROSS FROM TORCH LAKE

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time here over Labor Day weekend and would return. Spacious, well-maintained home across the road from Torch Lake. Home is very clean, kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies and dishes. Cozy covered front porch with view of a beautiful pond in the front of the property and Torch lake. Spent a lot of time on the front porch! The owners are very welcoming and accomodating. Only a 30 minute drive to Traverse City. Beautiful, comfortable vacation home!!

VACATION STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a terrific week at this beautiful and well-kept home. The photos were very accurate and we were pleased to find that the rooms had so much space. The cupboards were very well-stocked with plenty of dishes and brand-new cooking utensils/bakeware - everything we needed. The front porch was very relaxing and comfortable - we spent time there every morning enjoying the breeze and the slight view of the lake through the homes across the street, and watched thunderstorms under its cover one evening. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Torch lake was very picturesque and we were able to wade for what felt like miles in clear, sandy waters (but a warning to others: we did get "chiggers" from the water). I enjoyed walking daily for 4+miles of trails directly behind the home. Our teenagers liked the frog pond as much as any small child would, and the big-screen TV with lots of channels was also appreciated by our sports-loving teenage son. The owners were right across the street and very friendly and helpful. We used the grill nightly (it was in pristine condition!) and had bonfires a few nights, too - everything was very relaxing and enjoyable. It was a quick drive to golf courses (2 within less than 30 minutes away) and to Traverse City (about 40 minutes away). We would definitely go back.

GREAT LOCATION AT A REASONABLE PRICE

  • 5 of 5
Being a novice in renting property, I will start that this property exceeded my expectations. A very clean and spacious house with plenty of kid-friendly activities on site. The description accurately depicts the ammenities on the property. Having kids aged 8 to 20, none of them were ever bored. The 3D HDTV and wi-fi were added pluses! The kitchen was full service; all you need is your own food. Lots of counter space and seating for all of us. The Villiage Market has everything you would need at reasonable prices. The location has short walk to Torch Lake swimming access and a boat ramp is near the sandbar. It is close proximity to other near by attractions such as Petosky, Charlevoix and Traverse City. Other near by places I would recommend is Alden Bar and Grille and Luhr's Landing for boat rental. We even made a day trip to raft the Platte River and spent time at Sleeping Bear Dunes. The Stoldt's were very easy to deal with and very accomodating. No doubt a place I would use again and suggest to anyone going to the Torch Lake area.

If your looking for a perfect getaway to one of the most beautiful lakes in the country, you've found your spot. The location is amazing, with a short walk to the public accesss and sandbar. Christian provides a fully stocked gameroom to accompany a beautiful backyard with plenty of seating. Everyone in our group was more than pleased, and we look forward to coming back soon. Big Thanks to the Stoldt family!!!!

Torch Lake (known as the 3rd most beautiful lake in the world) offers endless opportunities. Two public accesses are located a 2-3 minute walk down the road. With sandy bottom and shallow water extending hundreds of feet into the lake, Torch is the perfect place for kids to enjoy the water. Kids will love the endless sand and will never want to leave. The house is located 1.5 miles down the road from the famous Torch Lake Sandbar. The sandbar is extremely shallow (about 2-3 feet deep). The sandbar is a VERY popular spot to park your boat, swim, play water volleyball, and party with friends. With its crystal clear water, that rivals that of the Caribbean, Torch Lake is perfect for swimming, boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, tubing, windsurfing, and relaxing.

Up the lake the small town of Alden can be found (reachable by car or boat). Alden is a secret gem that offers little shops and restaurants all within walking distance. Alden also includes a playground with several tennis courts. Stroll down the street of Alden on a warm summer day and enjoy the live entertainment during the Alden Strolls. Don’t forget to grab some ice cream from Higgens Store (Voted Best Ice Cream Shop). The kids will love the GIANT Superman ice cream cones!

Grocery shopping is also conveniently located just 1 mile away. The Village Market carries everything one might desire on a trip including all the ingredients needed to make smores!

Drive (or boat) on over to Elk Rapids for Harbor Days (July31- August 3). Harbor Days was voted best small town festival by MyNorth Media. You can come and stroll down main street Elk Rapids, or be a bit more adventurous and try your hand at the Paddleboard World Championships held every year. Kids will love the carnival rides and cotton candy alike, and cherish these memories for years to come.

Traverse City is located 25 miles southwest of the house. Traverse City is home to the National Cherry Festival (June 28- July 6) which offers boatloads of entertainment. The festival includes activities from children and adults, and a finale firework.

There are three boat ramps within 3 miles of the house; making it a boater’s paradise. There are also several golf courses within the area. 2 public accesses are conveniently located less than a 3 minute walk down the road.
