Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Barbara's cabin. Its cozy, quaint and just right for a couple. The location is great for a nice bike ride and a very short walk to the lake. You feel miles away with the quietness of the surrounding woods but yet close to the lake. The road has very little traffic and sleeping with windows open was perfect. Barbara is a fantastic host where the communication was above par. The meet and greet left us with more than enough recommendations for dining, lake fun, and places to go. She recommended a great place to rent kayaks that delivered them to us and picked them up from her place the next day. I was also greeted a birthday card and treat which was so thoughtful! Barbara truly goes above and beyond expectations of any host we have ever stayed with. We hope to return next year! Thank you!

Comfortable, Cozy, and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I brought our boat up to Torch Lake for the week of July 4 and wanted a place that was close to the lake and in a cozy setting. The cabin was perfect for us and I had room to keep my boat on the property. The boat ramp is only 1.5 miles away from the cabin and the setting is beautiful! Heavily wooded and gorgeous flower gardens. The cabin was decorated so creatively and we just loved our time there. One of the best views was waking up in the morning and having coffee in bed and just keeping the front door open - could see the flower garden and the beauty of the morning. Thanks Barb for such a great place and your attentiveness.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend on Torch Lake in this lovely little cabin. The weather was excellent and Barbara was a pleasure to work with! She did a great job of providing a large amount of information so that we could really enjoy the area and make the most out of our stay. Hoping to be able to return in the future!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Barbara's flower cabin was great, she met us upon arrival and reviewed area restaurants and pontoon/kayak rental options. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for our weekend get-a-way, the screened porch is great for morning coffee or a night cap and the fire pit is a nice place for a small campfire to finish off the night. We spent an entire day on Torch Lake just exploring by pontoon boat, I highly recommend Luhr's Landing for a rental their boats are very nice and affordable.

Quaint little cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Flower Garden Cabin for three nights this past May on our way back home to Chicago from a trip across the north shore of Lake Superior in Canada. The cabin is well maintained and compact. The bed is super comfortable and the screen porch the perfect place to chill and kick back. Barbara, the host was attentive, considerate and very helpful pointing out how to get the most out of the area (which was new to us). If you are looking for a cozy little place to stay near Torch Lake...this is it!
