About Alisa Carroll
I grew up in Southfield, MI and now live with my husband and son in Washington state. We love the outdoors, camping and hiking, and our summer visits to Torch. There is nothing like Torch Lake anywhere that I've ever been in the world. My family has had a place on the lake since the 1960s, starting with my grandmother whose cabin was just west of the cottage on Ladd Drive.
Why Alisa Carroll chose Alden
I spent every summer of my childhood on Torch and, though I have traveled to many places in my life, I have never found a place as beautiful as Torch Lake. The water is clear and the sand is sugary. You can walk out for half a mile before it is over your head and it's great for kids because of the shallow water near the beach. The cottage is a perfect place for a couple or family with its comfortable rooms and amenities.
What makes this House unique
Crystal clear water and a sandy bottom are great for kids, for playing and swimming. Beautiful view all the way down the lake with glorious sunrise and sunsets. Awesome for swimming, boating, sunning, and SUPs.

On the lake beautiful
Very nice, roomy. Very well equipped. Was not a fan of fireplace(just a hot steel wood burning stove in fireplace. Nor fire pit. Pit down by water on steep slope. No place to sit by fire cause hill so steep, too steep for chairs.
So our fantasy of a beautiful autumn fire was not a possibility. Lol. However, everything else was enjoyable, roomy, comfortable. Nice stove and laundry machines.
This was a great spot on Torch Lake!! The cottage was perfect for us and had everything we needed! Hope we can go back again!
Wish it was mine
Had a great stay on the lake with family. I had to admire some of the antique furnishings. The only downfall we had was we had to have the cable company come and fix a cable, appeared chewed by squirrels, so no fault of the owner. The view of the sunset across the lake was better than anything on TV anyhow. The fish could have been biting better but the cold spring did not help.
Was a short trip but amazing!! The o ly downfall was we had to wait outside with groceries in the car for 40 minutes due to the cleaning crew were still there...but other than that perfect location right on the lake! Definitely recommend!!
BEST LOCATION ON TORCH!
The property is lovely and its location could not have been more perfect! The dock is solid, the hoist worked well for our boat, & the fire ring out by the lake was a nice touch for the kids' marshmallow roasting in the evening. The view of the sunsets is stunning and the only thing else I can say is, "I wish it were mine." Thank you, Alisa!!! We will certainly be back.
Lots of great restaurants and shopping nearby.
