Best accommodations for a Torch Lake getaway ever! Rooms are beautifully appointed, breakfast is delicious and Harvey is a wonderful host. If you are considering a stay near Torch Lake this is the place to book. Call early too, it's a popular spot!

Room Tip: Every room at the Inn is amazing - you can't go wrong! The Torch Lake room is our favorite with...

Harvey is such a down to earth, easy to talk with kind of man. My husband Les and I were so glad to have stayed here (last minute) during the 1st week in July, extending our weekend from Traverse City and there was one room available that was cancelled! We tried to stay here the year prior but couldn't find a reputable kennel for our pooch. The cottage is beautiful and is steps away from Torch Lake. The room we stayed in had a kitchenette, a balcony and a fireplace with this plush bed that you can sleep on forever! He even has this quaint shop on the main level that has all sorts of indoor/outdoor accessories, jewelry, etc. The hospitality cannot get any better! .....You must stay here to get the full experience! It's a gem! Thanks Harvey! Les and I will be back!

Room Tip: Great upscale dining within miles in the Elk Rapids area: Siren Hall, Pearls, LuLu's. And one...

My husband and I spent our 1 year Anniversary here and couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend. The rooms are beautiful and clean and Harvey makes the most amazing breakfast, and is so kind. It is so close to the lake and.located in the perfect little town of Alden. You feel at home when here and the relaxation you get here is unbelievable. We are
heading back this weekend
with our daughter to enjoy this beautiful place.

We took over the Inn for a family vacation in June of 2014. Harvey is a most gracious host and his sidekick Merlin is a fabulous addition to make you feel right at home! Rooms are incredibly appointed and each has a different feel...but each are awesome, including private balconies and amenities galore! Harvey is an amazing inn keeper and to say that his breakfasts are good would be an understatement...they are AMAZING! WOW! Thank you so much for everything, Harvey and Merlin! The Brunssens' will be back! :)

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic...for a larger family get the Clam Lake Room...pics on the website do not do...

This place is what every B & B should be like. The rooms are absolutely amazing and the breakfasts are delicious. The Innkeeper, Harvey is awesome! He makes sure that everything is what it should be and his food is delicious! The inn is just a short walk from the water and if you don't have a boat there are benches that you can sit on and enjoy the water. There isn't a lot to do in Torch Lake if you are not on the water, however Traverse City was less than a 30 minute drive. We will definitely stay here again!

My wife and I stayed here during the Memorial Weekend and could not have been more happy with choosing this B&B. We have never stayed at a B&B and all I can say is that all other's will be compared to this experience. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Harvey is a great host and made us feel very welcomed. Even his dog Merlin made us feel welcomed as we sat outside and relaxed. The breakfast was awesome with more than enough to go around. If you have never stayed at a B&B or have had a bad experience in the past, please give this one a try.

Room Tip: All the rooms are clean and quite.

This place is five star! If you judge from the outside you will miss out. Inside is luxurious rooms, fabulous breakfasts and Harvey is the best Innkeeper. He will is always around to assist with any need. We have stayed twice now and intend to continue staying any summer that allows us. Torch Lake is the most amazing blue and a very short half block walk to the launch with small dock area. Harvey allowed us to park our large truck with small speedboat in his parking lot and we could go launch it, park back at the hotel and enjoy the lake all day with no parking tickets. We felt lucky to get a little piece of paradise on the lake and come home to a luxurious room to sleep until we could do it again the next day. Cute little town with a grocery store right across the street and a yummy ice cream store in the back. The town has a good restaurant for drinks and American fare a few steps further down the street.
