Beautiful, waterfront Torch Lake property!-eciateWe were very pleased with our decision to stay at the Torch River Retreat!! For starters, the home was very crisp and clean, and was adorably decorated with all the “beachy” accessories! We also really loved being within walking distance to the public access point of Torch Lake which was immediately across the street, and enjoyed the beautiful view of Torch River in the backyard. During the day we utilized the paddle boat and kayak provided with the property, and we spent our nights curled up with a bonfire under the stars. While at the lake a neighbor even introduced herself to give us tips of where to eat and explore! It was truly a perfect little getaway and we would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit Torch Lake!!!
We love your enthusiasm for Torch River Retreat, Melanie, and I know the owners will appreciate how much you liked how it was decorated! It is a very special place, and having guests like yourself who really get into the pleasure of the property makes it a win-win. We look forward to working with you again in the near future.
