About Torch Lake:

We have listed below some of the attractions around Torch Lake. This part of Michigan has lots to offer, and we have listed places nearby and some a little further afield which make very enjoyable day trips.

NEARBY TOWNS AND VILLAGES WORTH VISITING

Alden:

Great shopping, charming town.

“Tucked away on the beautiful shores of the 3rd most beautiful lake in the world, where you may uncover a real find! Who'd have dreamt there would be such pleasant shops and fine places to eat in a tucked-away village like Alden? No wonder everyone wants to keep it hush-hush. It’s the kind of place you want to save and introduce to a good friend-as if it were your own personal discovery. A sleeper? That's part of the allure. The other part is the unusual and varied merchandise you'll find here. Each shop has its own identity, with almost every one hosted by the owner and/or a friend or two.”

Thursday evening strolls with entertainment. (We are pretty sure they are doing this again this year.)

Bellaire:

Our local community – nice shops and restaurants. Moka has internet access.

Charlevoix:

This is a lovely waking town with many upscale boutiques and tourist shopping. There are some very good restaurants, although we did not list any below. Try the planked whitefish.

Elk Rapids:

Great shopping, marina.

“If you’re into food, you will love the variety Elk Rapids has to offer, from fine dining to picnic paraphernalia! When the mood to shop strikes, you’ll find a town full of boutiques, art galleries, antiques, and unusual items. Elk Rapids merchants will make sure you get your fix — or find perfect presents!”

Petoskey:

Hemingway spent his childhood summers in Petoskey and at Walloon Lake. His stories about the North Woods are based on his experiences here.

Traverse City:

There is so much to do in Traverse City that you will need to research it yourself! We will make only a couple of suggestions. This is a great town for shopping and restaurants and has a lovely beach on Lake Michigan.

SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS

There are many good restaurants in Charlevoix, Petoskey and Traverse City. We will let you find those on your own!

Afterloon Delights, Helena Road, Alden

Good lunch spot.

Brownwood Acres, North E. Torch Lake Drive, Central Lake. 3 miles south of Eastport, just north of M-31 turn-off

Eating and much more.

“Visit Historic Brownwood Acres for great family fun. While in Northern Michigan you won't want to miss this family friendly oasis in our modern busy world. It's a step back into a bygone era. Learn about the Country Store falling through the ice as it was moved from the old stage coach stop in Eastport across Torch Lake to its present site at Brownwood. Inside the store are many photos of the store sinking into Torch Lake. Home of Brownwood's famous Cherry Salsa, Dried Cherries, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Cherry BBQ Sauce, Cherry Concentrate, Cherry Butter, Kream Mustard, Preserves and Fudge. We ship our products worldwide. Visit Mary Lou's Tea Room where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch on our Victorian porch overlooking our hollyhock garden, or eat inside our quaint tea room amid the antiques and lace curtains.”

Dockside, SE Torch Lake Drive, Bellaire (this is not in town. It is on the road that runs down the east side of Torch Lake towards Alden.)

Casual dining, crowded with everybody thoroughly enjoying themselves. Fabulous outdoor deck with views of Torch Lake sunsets and all the boat traffic between Clam Lake and Torch Lake. One of Kristen’s favorite hangouts (along with Short’s)!

Lulu’s Bistro, N. Bridge St., Bellaire

Quiet, friendly and elegant dining. Make a reservation.

Moka, N. Bridge St.,

All your favorite coffee choices, plus excellent pastries, sandwiches and pizza. They have wireless internet available.

Mrs. Pete’s Restaurant, E. Cayuga St., Bellaire

Good breakfast place.

The Muffin Tin, Helena Road, Alden

Great carry out muffins, etc. for breakfast, and good lunch fare.

Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchens, Ames St., Elk Rapids

Cajun Creole menu served in a lively atmosphere. Serves lunch and dinner seven days a week. Features other New Orleans dishes, cocktails, and Sunday brunch from 10 am to 3 pm.

Rowe Inn, E. Jordan Road, Ellsworth

Fine dining north of Torch Lake –
