We would give more stars if we could! This cottage met all of our expectations. The cottage is immaculate and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Kim and Kevin were a pleasure to deal with and their customer service was superb. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and we would definitely stay there again.

From the moment we pulled into our rental on Torch I knew we were going to be very pleased. The home was immaculate and welcoming. Every need was met and the view was inspiring. The location was great for us, close enough to my sister and right next to our favorite golf course in Northern Michigan. The rental time of one week was just the perfect amount of time for our stay. Kim and Kevin you can tell you love your home and want everyone who visits to fall in love with it. Thank you again for letting us spend the week in your special place on Torch.

Wonderful Wilderness With Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Michigan, and it met all of our expectations! Beautiful land and lakes, the view from this vacation home is spectacular! The home has most of all the conveniences of home, very thoughtful touches throughout the home and attention to every detail. A comfortable home base for all the day trips that are accessible to this lake community. The home is clean, fresh, and like new. Owners are very nice and are from the area, they were helpful in answering all of our questions too! We would love to rent again!

Torch Lake Gem

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional home. A rare find. I did feel like I was stepping into a issue of Better Homes and Gardens. Immaculate and you will find everything to make your vacation complete. This was my first time to Torch Lake and I am a Michigander. This cottage is in a great area to explore Michigan's finest. From The Dunes to Traverse City, Charlevoix Petoskey Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City. My favorite was boating on beautiful Torch Lake. It was nice to come back to a secluded quiet environment as this cottage. We enjoyed eating at The Torch Cafe. Enjoyed a lunch at the Dockside, which is a perfect place to dock or drive too. We enjoyed a campfire and had great evening walks. I liked the option of enjoying the air conditioning if it was a muggy day. Kim and Kevin are great!

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was the most relaxing vacation my family has ever experienced. The home and location are perfect. Plenty of things to do in the area and a cabin in the woods to do nothing but relax.

Fall Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a fall trip to this perfect cottage on Torch Lake! Very conveniently located to all things an adventurer would want to do! We shopped, and hiked, and relaxed and enjoyed the quiet beauty of fall. The house was perfect and Kim was a lovely hostess. It's a wonderful time of year to be in Northern Michigan and loved the convenience and amenities the house offered. Would surely return! Thanks so much for the hospitality and kindness shown. We are big fans!!
