5/5 Excellent

Beautiful and relaxing getaway
Great location with beautiful sunsets. Big yard for the dogs. The property is secluded, no worries about neighbors. If I had to say on negative thing it would be that the beds were uncomfortable. Had to drive to Charlevoix to buy an air matress. Would still recommend and rent this property.

4/5 Good

a bit overpriced for the quality of the stay
We realize property on Torch Lake is higher priced than many other locations but we would not rent this property again at this price because: •The VRBO site said there was a canoe/kayaks and there was only a canoe with one of the oars missing a handle •First impression was "quaint". Combination old and new but some of the important things were old •Attention to details missing like toilet paper holder not connected to cabinet, handle off of closet door, no shelves or drawers in the bathroom to put stuff, the access to WIFI did not work, THE FURNACE IS BEYOND LOUD! AM I SHOUTING? WHY YES, CUZ THAT'S WHAT WE HAD TO DO TO HEAR EACH OTHER! :-o •Garage was locked. No place to store our bikes or to access the washer or dryer (brought the bikes into the living room)

5/5 Excellent

Fun at Torch Lake!
Had a great time staying at the Hearn's cottage. It's everything a lake cottage could be. Great space indoors and out. Would love to come back again!

4/5 Good

Quaint cottage with lovely sunsets
Accurate listing, clean cottage in a quiet neighborhood with great views from the deck. Nice side yard for lawn games, relaxing in the hammock, or enjoying a bonfire.

5/5 Excellent

No salt,no Sharks
As noted the property was clean and bright. Swam in Torch lake and also Lake Michigan which is a short distance away. The sunsets were fantastic! The kitchen had every thing you could want. Used the grill quite often and it worked fine. Had a great week,Patty and Frank.
