"Imagine" is an immaculate vacation cottage located on the shore of Torch Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. With it's incredibly clear blue-green waters Torch Lake has been described as Michigan's own slice of the Caribbean. The cottage is located in the quaint village of Alden on the west side of Torch Lake where your family will enjoy some of the most remarkable sunsets northern Michigan has to offer. A few highlights of "Imagine" include: a tennis court on-site, an open spacious floor plan, air conditioning, washer/dryer on the main level, 2.5 bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchen, cable TV, WiFi, and much more. After enjoying the day on sparkling water with your boat you can buoy (no hoist) it near the dock as the sun sets. Start the barbecue grill, enjoy your favorite summer meal but save room for s'mores around the campfire. A tennis court on the property will be a favorite activity for your family as well as friendly games of pool and ping pong or your favorite TV show on the large screen TV located in the lower level. The recreation room has a sliding door that opens to the patio. You can spend time in relaxing chairs on the upper level deck facing the lake or catch some sun rays on the dock. The master bedroom suite on the main floor includes a king bed, full bathroom and a sliding door leading to an upper level deck for a morning cup of coffee. There are 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom upstairs - 1 queen in one bedroom and 2 queen beds in the other. There is a bedroom with a twin bed on the lower level and, a high quality queen pull out sofa in the recreation area and an extra cot is also available. "Imagine" is located in a pristine location on Torch Lake and only a .4/mile walk down a quiet road to the village of Alden where you will find several shops, restaurants, a park with a playground and picnic tables, a boat launch, a museum at the renovated depot, ice cream, and is a bonus that you will not find anywhere!! You will enjoy the weekly Alden Stroll complete with a farm market, live music and family friendly fun. The living room is graced by a gas fireplace that will be enjoyed by your family as you reminisce about the day, read, play games and enjoy your family. The village of Bellaire, home to Short's Brewery is a 15 minute drive and Traverse City is only 30 minutes from the cottage. Vacationing is easy at "Imagine." Your family will want to return every summer

Imagine the peace of crystal waters at dawn as the fishermen drift to a distant call from a loon,
And the first skiers pierce the mirrored silence;
Imagine the ripple of the sandy bottom awaiting your touch as the lake comes alive,
And the gulls seek refuge from the energy that excites the soul;
Imagine all the people discovering the possibilities of this great gift,
And as the evening sun begins to quiet the vast waters once again,
The glowing colors of the sky illuminate the final skier’s path;
Imagine the constellations dancing in the darkness, and campfires dotting the vast shoreline,
Disappearing one by one while a night owl announces his reign.
