This cozy cottage is at the base of beautiful Torch Lake, on the south end of the lake across the street from a public access so it is not on the lake but across the street. We require a 2 night minimum during the off season (After Labor Day through mid June - Memorial Day weekend 4 night minimum) plus cleaning of $80.

Our place has A/C in the summer and we include all bedding, towels etc. This is more like a rental property versus a B and B but it's a great place for anyone interested in visiting Torch Lake. During the summer months we rent 7 night rentals from Saturday to Saturday, no exceptions until later in August we will consider 2 night minimums.

The cottage is across the street from the lake and we have access to a public lake access and a private shared access down the road half a mile.

There is no guest interaction with us as owners as we are not located on property. We do however have someone in the area who may stop by to check in and who will check out the property prior to cleaning to insure that there are no damages to the property.

It's peaceful and quiet especially during the Fall and Winter. Cute town of Alden is 5 minutes away.

Must have a car to get around.

Parking – Park on Cottage driveway, not along the roadside; you may also use the garage; please protect our bushes and trees.

Plants/Watering – If you have time to water the flower pots during your stay, we would certainly appreciate it.

Trash – Plastic bags are provided under the kitchen sink; please put trash in the designated container in the garage. We are allowed no more than one can per week so please handle your trash wisely. Trash pick-up is on Fridays (the trash container can be left out on the street all week or you can bring it in Friday afternoon after it has been picked up).

Recycle – We urge you to recycle your cans and bottles and cash them in for money at the local market in Rapid City. We do not have recycling containers for any other type of recycling at this time.

Smoking – Not allowed in the cottage; if you smoke outside, please dispose of your butts.

Fireplace – The flu is opened manually inside the chimney; burn only hardwoods provided in the garage; do not burn pine from woods; do not leave fire unattended/let burn down to coals prior to retiring for the evening; always use screen to prevent sparks from flying onto the carpet.

Heat/Air-conditioning – There is one thermostat on the wall in the living room; please only operate with the door to the porch and all of the windows closed and use discriminately.

Dehumidifier – Located behind the wall in the laundry room. Please be sure it is running and empty it in the shower when it is full. The hole in the floor does not accept drainage.

Laundry – Please spread out your wash loads, as the drain will begin to back up after about your second - third consecutive loads.

Kitchen – Coffee maker, microwave, and toaster are located at designated grounded outlets; please do not relocate any of them. Feel free to use kitchen items such as zip locks, bottled refrigerated items etc. Just replace something if you see that it is running out.

Telephone – We do not have a phone number at the cottage.

Grill and Fire pit – Use with extreme caution; do not dump hot coals/ashes in the woods and try not to make fires too big. We are in a high-risk area for brush and forest fires; water down the fire pit before retiring.

Private Beach/Beach Care – Our shared private beach is located about 2/10ths of a mile to the right (looking at the lake) across from Ladd Avenue. It is a long path to the beach marked by a white fence and several mailboxes grouped together just before it. Also, please be sure to protect the integrity of our beaches and lake; they are the jewels of this area.

Privacy – Respect the Privacy of our neighbors and property owners. Peace and quiet is appreciated by all. Keep noise levels down after 10 p.m.

Emergency Needs – Dial 911 for the Sheriff or Fire Departments; the closest hospital with an Emergency Room Facility is in Kalkaska.

Check Out on your departure day is 11 AM sharp so that the cleaning lady can get her job done in the time she has allotted for our cottage.

Cottage Clean Up – We want our renters/guests to have minimal cleaning worries when departing the cottage. If you could simply start 2-3 washer loads and be sure to put the cottage back the way you found it when you arrived, that would be most helpful! Please try to keep up with the towels etc. while you are here as our cleaning lady can only get in the loads you have started during her limited time period.

****Special Note****
Sanitary/Waste water system – Septic systems in this area have very limited capacity; Toilet paper only and short showers!!!!!

Great location, with the "Up North" feel.

Resposta de Kristin:
Thank you Connie for your review. Our apologies for the cottage not being ready for you upon check-in. Unfortunately this was the first rental of the season and someone new did the inspection prior to your check-in and apparently a lot was missed. Being that we are 7 hours from the place, we do have to depend on others and occasionally there is a miscommunication of the expectations. I hope you had a great weekend with your friends and thank you for being so gracious about the situation.

My family and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for three nights! The house was well stocked and very comfortable with lots of space. We never felt cramped. The lake is gorgeous and only a short walk to the private beach access. We wish we had more time to visit the town of Alden but only were able to stop at one of its quaint shops quickly on our way home. We loved kayaking and just enjoying the beautiful area we were in! Definitely recommend this place! Kristin was very prompt and helpful when responding to my questions! We definitely would stay there again next time we are in the area!!
