Our home is a totally renovated cape cod located in the town of Rapid City. We back up to the Torch Bayou, with space to park one boat during your stay. There is public access to the famous Torch Lake sand bar across the street for swimming. We are less than half of a mile from Torch River Marine where you can rent a boat to access Torch Lake and the rest of the Chain of Lakes.
The nearby town of Alden (4 miles away) also has a boat ramp and swimming area as well as several unique shops and restaurants. We are only about 25 minutes from Traverse City, home of the National Cherry Festival and many shops, restaurants, wineries, breweries and tap rooms. For those who enjoy craft beers, it is definitely worth the 15 minute drive to Short's Brewery in nearby Bellaire. Also, within an hour's drive you will be able to visit Charlevoix, Petoskey and Sleeping Bear Dunes.
Northern Michigan is not just a wonderful destination for spending time on the water. The area offers a multitude of activities. We are minutes away from world class golf courses, vineyards and casinos.
The house has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen and ample space for eight people to relax after spending the day enjoying the best that Northern Michigan has to offer. We also have a large deck with gas grill that is perfect for a BBQ. There is a fire pit overlooking the Torch Bayou for roasting marshmallows or just relaxing and enjoying the view.
My husband and I weren't looking to buy a cottage on Torch Lake, but a chain of unusual and complicated events led us to our Crystal Beach Getawey and we could not be happier. A lot of blood, sweat and tears have been shed renovating this home to make it a great place for our family and other families to enjoy for many years to come. We love everything about it, and hopefully you will too.
Jessica Wey purchased this cottage in 2013
This property was very nice(pictures don't do it justice)!! Very clean house....awesome location!! Being on the river is so peaceful!! owners were very helpful and quick to respond to questions!! Would HIGHLY recommend this property for an awesome vacation on Torch Lake.....we had so much fun!!
This was our second year renting and it was even better than the first year. The owners are great to work with, the house is nicely decorated and very clean, and it's in a great location to access all the fun Torch Lake and the surrounding lakes have to offer. We loved waking up to the beautiful bayou, reading the local papers, and having some coffee on the deck. We will be back!
Upon arrival we received very helpful assistance with docking our boat. The cottage was super clean and am looking forward to returning for my family vacation at this location in July. I would highly recommend your rentals.
My family and close friends stayed in this awesome house during 4th of July week. Right across from the public access to the sand bar and attached to the Torch river bayou. Amzaing view on both sides. It was perfect for people watching that is the madness of Torch lake on the fourth. Very Clean and inviting home with fantastic owners.
the property was clean and very comfortable, we were with the 6 of us, even though it rained every day we enjoyed the large tv and the view of the lake, the bedrooms were comfortable and again very clean it was very enjoyable and we would love to do it again.
This cottage is a hidden treasure on Torch Lake. Super Clean and Beautiful! Our family enjoyed fishing off the dock. It was a quick walk or kayak ride to the lake. The owners were wonderful to work with. We highly recommend it to everyone!
