Kewadin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-14)

These 2 charming family-owned cottages are located on 125 feet of private, sandy beach on Torch Lake's coveted northern tip. Viewed from the north, Torch's deep blue and green waters truly rival the Caribbean in clarity and beauty. This prime location in Eastport is located just minutes from Lake Michigan, and a short drive from both Charlevoix and Traverse City.

Either the Big Cottage or the Small Cottage can accommodate your family, or rent both cottages together at a discount to include extended family and friends. The Cottages are both located on the lakefront within 25 feet of each other. The Big Cottage has 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, eat-in kitchen with bay window, living room, an enclosed summer porch for relaxing or just looking out at the lake sunset, and large deck. It sleeps 9 guests with Master Bedroom with lake view, 5 singles upstairs, and sofa double. The Big Cottage has a washer and dryer.

Now with Wi-Fi reaching both cottages - bring your own laptop.

The Small Cottage has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower, a kitchen and living room area with breathtaking lake view, and a picnic deck. It sleeps 5 with bedroom, futon, and roll-away single. Both cottages front the lawn and lake. Linens not provided. Please visit our website link below for more photos of the cottages and grounds.

Our private and secluded property borders the sandy swimming beach complete with patio and bonfire area. The beach is free from rocks or plant life and very shallow making it ideal for kids. A dock, raft, rowboat, canoe and paddleboat are provided for cottage use. A public boat launch is less than 1/2 mi away on M-88, and a mooring for your boat borders the swimming area.

PLEASE CHECK our website link below for MORE PICTURES and the current schedule for either cottage! There is a link to "Our Website" below to get to the schedule. The standard "calender" link on this website is not always up to date.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These cottages have been in my family for over 50 years, and when I was growing up I spent a lot of time here. Our cottages are truly my favorite place on Earth. The water on Torch Lake is cool, clean, deep, and incredibly beautiful. On a still day, you will see blues, indigos, greens, and teals. At night, often the wind will blow, and you will hear the waves breaking on the beach when you're falling asleep. The cottages have enough land and beach that it is peaceful and secluded. But they're also close to Lake Michigan, Traverse City, and Charlevoix. In the winter time, many of Michigan's major ski resorts - Boyne, Schuss, Shanty Creek, Nub's Nob, are within a 45 minute drive. Torch Lake is definitely a very special place.
