3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Rapid City, Kalkaska County, Michigan
This cozy cottage is at the base of beautiful Torch Lake, just 3/4 of a mile from the sandbar on the south end of the lake, and is an ideal location. We are across the street from a public access and have a shared private lake access as well. If you need a boat slip, you can rent from the marina just 2 minutes down the road. This cottage sleeps 8 as it has one room with a queen and two bunk beds, a second bedroom with two twin beds and a sun porch with a trundle bed which acts as two twins or a king. The house has air conditioning and heat so is perfect for ski vacations as well and just about 25 minutes from Shanty Creek for great golf and ski opportunities.

Pine Tree Cottage was clean and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. We did most of our meals at the cottage and had everything we needed. The firepit was a big plus, as it was a bit chilly the week we were up there. If you don't have your own boat/canoes/kayaks/jetskis, be sure to call Jason Sayre for your rental...

Management response:

Thank you Lisa for the nice review. We hope you will think of us if you come to the area again. You were such a delight to work with!
