Our cozy family cottage has 100' of private waterfront on beautiful Torch Lake. The cottage has housed our family for generations, and we'd like to share our little escape with others. Torch Lake is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and with one look into the crystal clear blue water you'll see why. We have a very gradual increase in depth for several hundred feet into the water, creating a striking sight of the blue depths of Torch. We have a dock that extends almost 90' out to the lake, with a 12'x12' platform at the end for enjoying some time in the sun. At the end of the dock it's only 3' deep! Just down the road is the Torch River Bridge, near the famous Torch Lake Sandbar. Across the lake is the town of Alden. The cottage recently underwent major renovations, completely modernizing the kitchen, bathroom, and living areas.
Our cottage has a wonderful combination of feeling very private, quaint, and secluded with large, old trees surrounding the property. But only 30' away is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. As part of the Chain O' Lakes, Torch Lake has waterway connections to Lake Bellaire, Clam Lake, Intermediate Lake, Lake Skegemog, Elk Lake, etc. Not to mention Lake Michigan right next door.
