Rapid City Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Amazing Cottage Offers The Best Views Of The Lake From A Large Deck
Note~We have just purchased this home in December-2013. We have just made several updates.
Our Tree House is on a two acre wooded lot. The large deck offers amazing views of the most popular destination on the lake; the sandbar. You may decide to take part in the sandbar festivities or relax on our two acre wooded property.
Whether you are having your morning coffee or enjoying a bottle of Northern Michigan wine, the deck at the Tree House is the perfect spot to unwind.
Discover why Torch Lake is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the country according to National Geographic.
There is public access to the famous Torch Lake sand bar a couple blocks away. We are also a few blocks from the Torch River Marine where you can rent a boat to access Torch Lake and the rest of the Chain of Lakes or access to a boat launch.
The nearby town of Alden (4 miles away) also has a boat ramp and swimming area as well as several unique shops and restaurants. We are only about 25 minutes from Traverse City, home of the National Cherry Festival and many shops, restaurants and wineries. Also, within an hour's drive you will be able to visit Charlevoix, Petoskey, Sleeping Bear Dunes and our personal favorite; Leland.
Northern Michigan is not just a wonderful destination for the summer time. The area offers activities for all seasons of the year. We are minutes away from world class golf courses, vineyards, skiing at Shanty Creek or Boyne, snowmobile trail-heads and casinos.

About Michelle Thelen
Our family purchased the Tree House in December of 2013. We have been visiting Torch Lake for over 25 years and have decided to make this our second home. We love it so much, we would like to share it with other families. Torch Lake is an amazing place to develop long lasting childhood memories.
We are in the process of remodeling some of the cottage but it will be available for the 2014 season.
Michelle Thelen purchased this cottage in 2013
Why Michelle Thelen chose Rapid City
We decided to purchase a boat in the Spring and keep it at the local marina. We bought a boat that we could sleep on. We tested the waters and decided to start looking for a cottage by the lake. The Tree House came to us via some of our local friends. There was no sign in the yard, it was truly for sale via word of mouth. When we pulled up the drive, we fell in love with the cottage well before we went in. The unique design and views sold us.
We love it and we hope you will also share it with your family and loved ones. It is very special.
What makes this cottage unique
The Tree House has an open floor plan but also offers an in-law-suite on the lower level. Our home is excellent for families that may have an extra family along or have invited Grandma & Grandpa along.
