Torch Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world! The color of the water will make you think you are in the Caribbean. The lake is 20 miles long and there is a sandbar at the south end where everyone hangs out in the summer. Sit in the front yard and enjoy a cool breeze and watch the sun set! Privacy abounds, yet you are only minutes to the towns of Bellaire and Alden with all they offer - restaurants, grocery store, shopping and Shorts Brewery!

Boat rentals nearby. Ample outdoor parking for your vehicles. Berry picking and art galleries are all close by. In the GoogleMaps shot the long straight dock in the middle of the image is the dock for the house. It's 120ft long and begins at the base of the steps that run down the shore embankment. There is a 4 step stairway with railings placed on the beach side of the dock near the shore to make it easy to access the sandy shore and a 8 ft x 10 ft 'L' at the end of the dock with a bench. The southernmost 30 ft of the shore terminates by a pile of rocks that helps capture natural sand. The sand extends all the way to the dock which is about 50 ft from the rocks. While the beach is mostly sand, the lake bottom outward is a mixture of sand and pebbles but there are no sharp rocks so you can walk and play comfortably. The depth gradually increases to around 4ft at the end of the dock. this is a Saturday to Saturday rental during peak season. please ask about fall # of nights.

Wonderful week on Torch Lake

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fun week with friends at this idyllic lake house on Torch Lake. The house was very clean, and had plenty of room for our children to play both inside and out. We loved the easy access to the lake, and swam every day in the warm and gorgeous Torch Lake. The kitchen was fully equipped and we enjoyed our meals watching the beautiful sunsets. We also enjoyed running and biking in the area, and exploring nearby Bellaire. Jane was wonderful to work with.

Look no farther for a terrific vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not show justice on how great this place is.. My family and I, which included 5 adults and 5 children enjoyed a great week long vacation.. This home was very clean and spacious including the garage. The adults and children also enjoyed the pool table and ping pong table. It came equipped with all your kitchen needs and a very nice gas grill for outside cooking.. We were about 5 minutes from bellaire and about 2 minutes from the closet boat launch which was very easy to unload and reload your boat. Only downfall was that the boat hoist was not accessible do to the owners boat on it.. Over all this vacation was one of the most peaceful and relaxing vacation we have ever had.. I would definitely recommend this place for other family's to enjoy..

P.S I would highly recommend Jane Griffin from Northern Michigan Real Estate Rental or (NMRE)to set up or help you with all your vacation plans, she was very helpful and a great person to work with.
