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!

cozy and comfortable

Barbara was an absolute joy to work with!

Loved staying in this quiet and cozy cabin just across the road from Torch Lake. Woodsy feel with a beautiful bonfire spot, highly recommend for a couple or single person.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I were looking for a place with beautiful scenery so that we could escape from life for a couple of days. We just returned from two nights at the Flower Garden Cabin and it was the perfect spot. The cabin itself has lovely decor and was so clean and cozy. We sat out on its deck for our lunches, read on the screened-in porch and relaxed on the comfy bed to watch TV. The outside areas around the cabin are beautiful, too. My friend enjoyed the hammock while I sat in the fire pit area to read and drink my coffee. We built a fire one night and enjoyed the sounds of nature and each others' company in total privacy.

Barbara was a thoughtful and helpful hostess. When we first arrived she filled us in on all the local restaurants and attractions and gave these two directionally-impaired ladies some very good directions! We texted her several times for information or ideas and she always responded promptly and in a very friendly manner. In fact, we felt like we had made two new friends- Barbara and her sweet dog, Molly. If you are looking for a place that is centrally located and you want to feel like you're "away from it all," you should check out this cabin and meet Barbara!

Great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I came up to Torch Lake for a relaxing Labor Day weekend and Barbara's flower cabin was the perfect escape. It was quiet, very clean and she had a list of suggested restaurants, activities and attractions to see. One day we took a day trip to Traverse City and to Leland, which was perfect because it was about an hour drive and the weather was a little chilly in the morning so we weren't missing much on the lake. Later that day we went to the beach in Traverse City and spent the following day on Torch Lake, enjoying the Labor Day festivities. I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone who is looking for a quiet retreat! Great location!

perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Located just a walk away from the beach, this is a great spot for a getaway. Torch lake is amazing. Cabin was clean and has everything you'll need. Area around the cabin is great, very scenic with lots of flowers, trees and hummingbirds. Barbara is very helpful and hospitable.
