Local Activities and Attractions

TORCH LAKE was named the third most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic Magazine. The water is so clear you can see the sandy bottom all the way out to the "drop-off." On sunny days, the lake has ribbons of turquoise color that are reminiscent of the Caribbean. Torch is the largest lake in Michigan (19 miles long and about 2 miles wide) and is part of a chain of lakes which allows boating from Elk Rapids to Bellaire. (See article)

ALDEN and Beyond: The town of Alden is a short walk (3/4 mile) from the cottage. Alden offers more than you'd expect from such a small town. It has one of Torch Lake's four public boat ramps, a number of restaurants (both casual and fine cuisine), art galleries, a variety of shops, a playground, a public tennis court, and a library. Green woods and broad fields extend out from the town, offering great cycling and walking.
