Torch Lake Bed and Breakfast

Central Lake, Michigan

Located on 19-mile-long Torch Lake, high on a hill, views from Torch Lake Bed and Breakfast are absolutely spectacular. Our sunsets are legendary.

Be pampered with gracious hospitality and delicious full breakfasts. Excite your senses without leaving the inn; enjoy the cool breezes escaping from Torch Lake or curl up in front of the stone wall fireplace.

Relax on the large decks and enjoy a water view or a farm view. Our hot tub invites you to stargaze at night.  The sunroom is spectacular and the library is stocked with books. Enjoy two kayaks, two paddle boards, fishing rods. We have a private beach and dock. Arrive by boat or float plane.

Unique experiences at Torch Lake B&B


From our dock on Torch Lake, take an excursion in our kayaks or on our standup paddle boards. Ask us if conditions are right for a sunset cruise. Go biking on some of the area's lovely trails. Hiking? Check out the Grass River Nature Area or Glacial Hills Pathway and Natural Area. Sandy's Stables offers 18 acres of pasture and trails for horseback riding. They'll match you with a horse appropriate to your experience level. For the more adventurous, go skydiving or parasaliling over nearby Lake Michigan. Ask the innkeepers for details. You can even arrive at Torch Lake B&B by seaplane. We’ll guide you to moorage, sheltered by the bluff on which our B&B sits. We can lend you a car to get to a local restaurant for dinner. 


The combination of our lovely rooms and the inspiring and commanding views of sunrises and sunsets, makes Torch Lake Bed and Breakfast very popular for honeymoons, anniversaries and other life celebrations. With our customizable packages and add-ons — such as cake, wine, chocolates, flowers and more — we make the effort to arrange everything, and you get the credit. 


Torch Lake Bed and Breakfast specializes in small, intimate weddings for up to 25 people total. Say your vows overlooking the water. Hold your reception on the deck. We do the catering. Innkeeper Deb is known for creating wedding cakes.  


Breakfasts at Torch Lake Bed and Breakfast use a lot of locally harvested fruits and vegetables — for example from Providence Organic Farm right next door, from King Orchards, and from Friske Orchard, whose farm stand is so popular that bus tours stop there. For dinner, if you fancy a fresh catch from Great Lakes waters, ask the innkeepers which restaurants offer the best-prepared dishes.  

Craft beer 

Short’s Brewing Company in Bellaire, only 10 miles away, is a leading tourist destination and a favorite of guests who stay at Torch Lake B&B. Go for the beer, go for the entertainment. Lots of fun. 


Torch Lake is the centerpiece of a nearly 31-mile water trail encompassing five lakes. You can go by water from Bellaire to Elk Rapids and out to the east arm of Grand Traverse Bay. We offer two kayaks and two standup paddle boards. It is possible to rent pontoon boats and other motorized vessels. Ask the innkeepers about a sunset cruise aboard their 25-foot power boat. 

Natural Wonders 

If you’re looking for the highlights of Northwestern Michigan beauty, start outside our back door. National Geographic magazine once called Torch Lake, with its crystal-blue aqua water, as the third most beautiful lake in the world. Many of our guests venture forth to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore or Mackinac Island, each about 90 minutes away.
