  • Family Vacay


    The house is just right for a family of 8. It has all the comforts of home. A very clean property. The only thing we missed is WiFi. Well if you are on a vacay then go out to the water and enjoy the beautiful lakes nearby.

  • Beautiful and clean


    This home was really comfortable and had everything you need while on vacation. It is situated very close to torch lake and shopping was no problem either. I highly recommend this place for a small or big family.

  • Needs some attention.


    The house is okay, it does need to been cleaned. The windows were filthy gross, it exists in a weed/sand field where there is no yard and you cannot enjoy the “fire pit” bc it’s just charred wood piled up in the weeds and sand. Nowhere to sit outside, the air conditioning unit is so loud it sounds like a jet taking off when it cycles. It has potential to be a great place after some work is done.
