My family and I spent the last week of August 2014 on Torch Lake and we could not be happier with our choice! Less than 100 yards from the famous South End sand bar, we could walk, boat, kayak or paddle board to all the summer fun in just minutes. The panoramic view this location provides is unmatched. Sandy beachfront and soft sand all the way out to sandbar. Overized fire pit and benches along with unlimited wood for hours of summer night fires and fun. The (4) colored Adirondack chairs overlooking Torch were my favorite spot of the week. Plenty of parking in the circular driveway. 2nd story deck, well equipped with chairs, picnic table and gas grill offers another vantage point to enjoy the views. Loft accommodations were perfect for our family of 5. Master bedroom for parents and 2nd bedroom with beds for (5). Tasteful decor throughout and very clean rooms, bath and kitchen. Towels and linens provided was nice for less packing. Rentals of boats, paddle boards & kayaks were minutes away. Alden Marine was our favorite:) The hospitality of the owners next door was first rate! We will be back in 2015:)

Great Family Vacation at Torch Lake

  • 5 of 5
My family of three stayed at the Upper Story at Torch for a week in August. The home worked perfectly for us. Our three-year old loved playing in the small sandy beach and in the lake. The water is only a few feet deep for quite a distance from the shore, which was perfect for our little one. The unit was extremely clean and well-stocked for a home away from home experience. The couple of things that we couldn't find, Bruce, the owner and next-door neighbor, brought to us immediately from his home. The setting - the lake, the beach, the fire pit, wooded yard, etc. - created a wonderful escape for us. Thanks Bruce!

This place is perfect. Its right by the sand bar. The cottage itself is great. Its the upper level of a building, so there is no one else staying on property. Bruce the owner, is great. He help me launch my boat numerous times, with no hesitation. The cottage is well kept, as well as the property. Bruce provides just about everything you need. We had a great experience at this property. We had great experience with owner. We will return. Thanks Bruce for a great trip.

The Upper Story at Torch is a wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at the Upper Story located on the South end of Torch Lake. From the minute we arrived I knew we had made the right choice of properties. It was close to 10 pm when we arrived and Bruce the owner was there to show us around. He gave us a quick tour of the home and answered any questions we had. We had 2 trucks, a 24 ft boat, 2 jet skis, and a van all of which fit neatly across the front concrete circle driveway. We still had room to enter and exit the driveway to come and go as needed. The property does not feel like a rental it feels like home. Everything is top quality, beds, bedding, pillows, towels, furniture, carpet, decor, kitchen, outdoor furniture, fire pit, are all top of the line. Every inch inside and out is clean, neat, and in like new condition. The yard, trees, landscaping, and sand beach are all in tip top shape. We had a great time all week enjoying beautiful Torch Lake, touring The nearby towns of Alden, Rapid City, and Elk Rapids. Torch Lake did not disappoint, it lives up to its ranking in the top 3 most beautiful lakes in the world. Our stay at The Upper Story on Torch was a 10 out of 10. We are already looking forward to coming back. I would highly recommend Torch Lake, the Upper Story, and Bruce the owner to everyone.

I remember going up to Torch Lake as a child with my family and it is every bit as beautiful as I remember it! The accomodations were perfect, very clean and comfortable. The owners were wonderful people and helped us in any way that we needed. I would definitely recommend this fantastic place to anyone. I will be returning with my own family as often as possible.
