A True Story

A Lake to Lake Online Review
We were informed that Michigan B&Bs were joining inns across America offering free lodging for active military and veterans over last month’s Veterans Day weekend. Torch Lake B&B graciously opened its doors to us — a group of four — and made us feel welcome, respected and totally comfortable. This was an amazing tribute to our military and veterans and, as we got to know our hosts, we could tell it was from their hearts. Deb and Mike truly appreciated the service of my husband and the other gentleman who accompanied us with his wife. They listened to our life stories. They cared.
The B&B was beautiful and welcoming with the most spectacular view of Torch Lake directly from the front window. We felt genuinely welcome and at home with the innkeepers, with whom we had the opportunity to sit and chat in the evening. It seemed as though we were all long-time friends by the time we turned in. At breakfast, the table was set in seasonal decor and the meal was nothing short of spectacular. Again, the company and conversation was easy and comfortable. The accommodations were impeccable.
There isn’t a thing we can think of that would have made our getaway more enjoyable. We plan to visit Deb and Mike again in the summer to soak up the warm-weather advantages of Torch Lake. We are grateful for the honor and look forward to another stay.
Torch Lake B&B offers three luxury guest rooms in Central Lake, the heart of northern Michigan. Close to Traverse City, Bellaire, Shanty Creek ski resort and several casinos, the area offers shopping and antiquing, boating, swimming, sailing, wind surfing, canoeing, fishing, kayaking, biking, hiking, and resting and relaxing.
