About the property

Comfortable Family Ranch Situated On The East Torch Lake Shores

Our 6 bedroom, 3 bath home is full of north woods charm. No detail has been spared to make your stay at 'Beautiful Torch Lake' one you will always remember. Our home is situated on 110 feet of private frontage on the crystal blue waters of Torch Lake (voted third most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic magazine). Imagine yourself sitting on the large dock in a beach chair while the kids swim or boat in the lake. At night, enjoy sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows under the clear star-filled skies.

Short trip to Alden or Popular Boating Destinations

Our house is only a short drive to downtown Alden – a charming small town with a spirit you have to experience to believe. Alden is known for its flower-lined streets where everyone you meet offers a friendly greeting. Alden has several restaurants, and Higgins General Store that has the best, biggest, ice cream cones you could ever eat. The town has cute boutique stores, a deli, family bar, tennis and basketball courts, and a park with a playground. Just at the end of the road are the public boat launch, library and community center. The popular Dockside restaurant is just 1.5 miles away by boat or car. Torch Lake’s famous sandbar is also a short boat ride away at the southern end of the lake.

Comfortable Family Home

Our home is situated on the most desirable part of Torch Lake. The sunsets are breathtaking, the lake bottom is hard sand, and because of the way the winds blow, there are very few mosquitoes! A large patio overlooks the water providing wonderful outdoor dining and lounging areas. Ample beach chairs and outdoor furniture, as well as an outdoor charcoal grill, are provided. We include a dock and mooring buoy for your boat. There are also many opportunities to rent watercraft locally.

Our home is fully furnished and we supply all linens, pillows, and towels. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, coffee maker, dishes and all pots and pans. We also provide a washer and dryer.

Our 3400 sq ft home features a large open kitchen and living room with sweeping views of Torch Lake. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a bay window with a sitting area overlooking the lake, en suite and sliding glass door opening to the lake side patio. Also on the lakeside, there is another bedroom containing a queen-sized bed with a beautiful view of the lake. There are also 4 more bedrooms with 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds, 2 twin beds and a crib, and a twin bunk beds. The home also features a separate recreation room with a large screen TV, sitting area and foosball table, for those rainy days to entertain the kids.

Disclaimer: Please remember, this is a quiet street and this cottage is ideally suited for families looking to build life long memories and is definitely NOT a party cottage.
