Overview

Northern Michigan Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Farm house cottage, completely remodeled bathrooms and kitchen with tastefully decorated in French Country with an Up North feel. The farmhouse has a large wrap around screened in porch all done in wicker, and has a twin size bed on it that many guests have had to flip for in the past! French casement windows off the porch allow for the natural breezes through out the home...ahhh, the smell of summer breezes!

This home will fill quickly....so, call us today to reserve your vacation with us!

Interior: Sleeping accomodations include four bedrooms ; one bedroom features a beautiful queen four poster bed in classic oak, the second bedroom features a queen size bed, the third and fourth bedrooms are located upstairs; one bedroom has a set of twin beds, and the forth bedroom has a full size bed in it. This is a small bedroom. There is also a bonus kids room that can play in -- kids camp style, and lets not forget the twin on the screened in porch. This home can potentially sleep 10 people if needed!

The main floor also includes two bathrooms completely stocked with towels and linens for your convenience. Enjoy open entertaining between the living room, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is also fully stocked with all of the cooking utensils that you'll need.

Exterior: The house has 150 feet of East Side Torch Lake frontage! It sits in the middle of a 1000 feet deep, 4 acre lot, private with 200 foot sandy path leading to the waters edge. Depending on how the wind blows, views of Torch Lake can be seen through the trees. A private canopy is provided for shaded dining/entertaining, a sandy beach with a firepit a dock for your boat as well as a boat lift!

A charcoal grill is also available.

You're on Torch Lake!

As BEAUTIFUL as this home is, it is a rustic summer cottage! It is also Up North! There will be trees surrounding the house, bugs, and the occasional 'wild-life'! The house runs on a well, so the water may smell funny sometimes too, but no need to worry, RELAX, your on Torch Lake!

Sunsets, Beaches, Nature and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had a FANTASTIC time. The Farmhouse cottage is soooo cute. Very clean and has everything you need. The property is huge. There is a long path to the water that we walked and sang on our way down every day. My kids loved exploring the woods, the beach, so much wildlife. Torch is so beautiful. The owners and managers are so responsive. My child got sick and they got medicine for me!!! Thank you for an amazing stay!!!!

We are coming back

  • 5 of 5

We came up for a long weekend in the fall for my spouses birthday. It was just what a cottage should be. Very cute, decorated nicely, had board games, and old movies, as well as wifi and cable. We noticed they put brand new bathrooms in the house. They also had new beds and a new stove. We just booked again for Summer of 2015. We cannot wait!!!

Fall relaxtion

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Thank you Thank you. That is just what my partner and I needed. Your cottage is so quaint, so well-appointed, just what a cottage in Northern Michigan should be!!! All of the beds were comfy and clean. We sat on the large porch and watched the nature. It was just perfect, just what a cottage should be. There was not a person around us, and so many picturesque scenes to view. We enjoyed the beach and house. Thank you again!!!

Fabulous and a Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a perfect stay. We absolutely loved the Farmhouse cottage, we felt everything to be very comfortable and cozy. We LOVED that you had wifi and cable as well. There were so many perfect places to sit outside, enjoy a fire, enjoy a view. The beach was very sandy and beautiful. We loved everything about it. The bathrooms were so clean and new! That was a wonderful surprise in a cottage! Our family enjoyed every part of our Labor Day Holiday!!!!!

Very Rustic & Outdated!

  • 2 of 5

The cottage was very rustic, a lot of bugs! The cottage needs some serious updating, especially the furniture. All of the mattresses and couch are completely worn and uncomfortable. The stove is so old, the numbers cannot be seen. Quite a long trek down to the dock, but we did love the fire pits. Landscaping was overgrown, especially the bushes. We had to get the maintenance guy to change out light bulbs & fix the screen on the back door. For the money the owner receives, it certainly could use a facelift! The price on the HomeAway website was wrong, they made us pay $200 more than what was listed!

Perfect vacation, Perfect Home!!

  • 5 of 5

There's a song with the reference "toes in the water, (bottom) in the sand, not a worry in the world". That perfectly sums up this little piece of heaven! A perfect Up North cottage with privacy, plenty of space, and it's own beach! The boys ran and swam all day and I was able to indulge in my pleasure of cooking gourmet meals in the open kitchen! The sleeping/hanging out screened in porch was perfect at night for the family, and we found the place clean and quaint with the updates needed for an "electronic age" family! It's close enough to restaurants and bars, but miles from any tourist traps! I'd recommend this again and hope to come back next year.
