  • Little piece of heaven


    Torch lake is like the Carribean without the hassle of travel outside of Michigan! The home was perfect for eight people! It was very clean and had all essentials you could need. Very nice sandy beach and chairs. Nice outdoor shower so we didn't track sand thoroughout the house. We would go back tomorrow.

  • Not as described and not worth the amount it was listed for


    Through VRBO we didn't ever receive any check in instructions sent to us. Once I downloaded another app which is the property management company I could then see check in instructions. We also never got check in instructions for the guest suite which was included in the rental to make it a "4 bedroom home" which I say loosley. One of the bedrooms is a sunroom and gets very very hot and doesn't have many curtains to cover up the windows for sleeping. The house was NOT as expected, it was much smaller and much older. I will say the location was awesome and the outdoor space was great, but there were so many things that made this house not worth the money. The portable AC unit wasn't even connected to a window and was blowing hot air back into the house. My fiance had to connect it and we then used cardboard to block the rest of the open window. The description said it had a drip coffee maker, it did not. I asked the owner about this and he said.. oh yeah, we need to update the description and never offered to give us a discount if we went out to buy one. We purchased one at the local store for $30 and left it there for the next guests. The kitchen is very very small and some of the pots and pans and dishes that were in the cupboard were dirty. I would not recommend staying at this house unless the new owner (who has owned it for 2 weeks) does some major improvements. I was very disappointed in the house and accomodations for the price we paid!

    Overall we all had an Amazing experience, we stayed at this beautiful home from Friday June 10th to Monday June 13th, everything look clean and in placed. The owner of the property called me the day off and was very helpful. The home was right on the water, across from the sun bar so that was pretty fun for everyone. We enjoyed the fire place and watching late night movies in the livingroom. The only thing that was not there was the white fence. So pictures do need to be updated.Thank you.

  • Weekend Getaway


    My friends and I had such a wonderful stay at the cottage on Torch Lake. Some of my friends had never been to Michigan, and none of us had ever been to Torch Lake. This trip had many wonderful firsts for us and this cottage was the perfect little home to us for the weekend.

  • Nice house with many updates. Weather was chilly with 1 day of rain so spent most of time away.


    Nice location except on busy road. Beautiful beach area. Full amenities. Advertised the back porch as a sleeping area but it was not heated and very cold in September. Advertised laundry facilities but sign on laundry room "for housekeeping only". Detached guest room/ bath nice but no TV, wifii or extra blankets...we were there in September. Nice dock for watching beautiful sunsets..but it was pulled out when we were out for lunch on Friday :( Over all nice stay.
