This apartment is located on a 26 acre vineyard in Northwest Michigan and is attached to our winery tasting room (WaterFire Vineyards). The vineyard sits atop a steep ridge that extends up from Torch Lake. It is 1/2 mile walk to Torch Lake or 5 minute drive to beaches on Lake Michigan. The deck has sweeping views of the vineyard and the space offers one queen bedroom, a kitchenette with oven and small fridge, and a sitting area.
“We really enjoyed our stay at the vineyard/winery. The small apartment is adorable, clean and comfortable. It was nice having the host Chantal nearby in case we needed anything (which we didn't). It was fun being right there at the winery (apt is attached!) when open, followed by complete solitude after it closed at 7pm. Location is fabulous, on 20+ acres, very close to our favorite town Elk Rapids. We brought our pontoon boat/trailer and the Elk Lake boat launch was only about 10 minutes away. Spent the days on the lakes (Elk / Skegemog / Torch / Clam / Bellaire) then back for a relaxing evening at the vineyard. We also brought our dog Cooper and he had a grand time. We will definitely try to book here the next time we come to Elk Rapids. Thank you Chantal!”
Enjoy all that Torch Lake has to offer in this lakefront home with 175 feet of private lake frontage.

The outdoor spaces include a large deck with dining tables, picnic table on the lawn, a fire pit, and wooden swing overlooking the lake.
“We had a wonderful time here for our annual family vacation to Torch Lake. The cottage was very spacious and we loved have two bathrooms. The windows and double sliders gave an amazing view of Torch Lake for our morning coffee and family dinners. The weather was perfect on Friday and Saturday but Sunday it rained all day. We had a fun time renting a Pontoon and enjoying the famous Torch Lake Sandbar. We can't wait to hopefully come back next year!!!”
NORTHERN MICHIGAN IS NOW OPEN! Comfortable, spacious chalet in the trees, short 5 minute walk (across E. Torch Lake Dr.) to public access to beautiful Torch Lake. Close to downtown Bellaire, Short's Brewing, Shanty Creek and Dockside and a short drive to Glacial Hills Nature Conservancy for Biking and Hiking. Great for family summer vacation or cozy ski weekends.
“We loved our stay here! Torch Lake is beautiful! We rented a boat which I would recommend! Definitely visit Dockside and Butches. Sleeping Bear Dunes is a little drive, but the hiking and views are worth it. Elk Rapids has a great beach. We also loved our time at the house and bonfires.”
