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.

Beautiful and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon. It was perfect. All the amenities you could need in this quaint and cozy cabin. Close to unique towns with shops and good food. Not far from Traverse City, which was fun to check out Cherry Festival. Headed to Sleeping Bear Dunes, breath taking! Close to the water, wooded and private...everything you could want for a mini getaway from all that life brings. Hope to return. Barbara is wonderful and beyond accomodating and helpful. Love Molly, too!

It doesn't get much better

  • 5 of 5

Imagine a cozy wooden cabin set amid tall trees next to a deep blue lake in upper Michigan. A jewel of a room with a nice bed and everything required to forget about the world. At night, I sat by the fire pit next to a riot of flowers and stared at the stars. When I felt energetic, Torch Lake offered all the pleasures of the outdoors. Outstanding.

Lovely, quaint woodsy cabins.

  • 5 of 5

This darling cabin in the woods is a wonderful place to park yourself while visiting Torch Lake. The flowers in front of the cabin provide an incredible aroma, especially if you are sleeping on the futon in the front screened porch. Like camping but not roughing it, with all the creature comforts of home. Many wonderful types of coffee to choose from in the morning while you sit and watch the humming birds feed from the flowers. Barbara is an incredible host and provides all the information you need upon arrival: beaches to go to, markets, restaurants, and maps. The cabin was very clean and provided everything you will need. We decided to take full advantage of the gas grill and cooked all of our meals at the cabin. Her assistant Molly will greet you with her wagging tail and smile. She is such a delight. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer. You will love Torch Lake Cabins. We can't wait to come back!
