The Giddings Little Cottage is a one-room (+ bedroom/bath) family cottage that was built in the 1950's. It is funky and rustic with simple decor, but it is ON THE WATER! Please do not book it if you are expecting a hotel experience. It is on the west side of our Torch Lake property, which has a beautiful, sandy, gradual beach.


The Little Cottage is one of two simple, rustic summer cottages located on 125+ feet of pristine Torch Lake sandy beach.
Our beach is great for swimming, paddling, and boating. Torch is a gorgeous spring-fed lake that reflects colors of green, blue, and indigo.
Our other cottage, the Big Cottage, is on the east side of the property. See our other listing or inquire if you are interested in renting both cottages for the entire property.

Andre ting å merke seg

We had an AMAZING stay in this cozy little cabin steps away from the sandy shoreline on turquoise waters of Torch Lake. Melissa was so easily accessible when we needed to extend our stay (multiple times, we loved it so much!) and responded so quickly to all of our questions. One of the great features was the sandy shoreline with a shallow gradual incline that would be very safe and perfect for all ages and warm for swimming. There is a picturesque long dock where you can sit at night and see every star in the sky and sometimes even the Northern Lights. The cabin was vintage and rustic, so cute! Kayaks and canoes were provided. Internet connection was perfect and there is a smart TV that allowed watching YouTube and regular channels. The cabin was very close to the water and we could hear the waves coming in at night. There was a nice fire pit. It is very quiet and secluded on this side of the lake. Lake Michigan is right across the road and there is a Torch Lake Nature Preserve where we found numerous Petoskey stones and other fossils along the beautiful beach with breathtaking sunsets. There are hiking trails in unique dune ecosystems at the preserve. The grocery store and restaurant is almost in walking distance even though you feel like you are in the wilderness. There is a lot to do in the area and sometimes you forget you are in Michigan, it feels like the ocean, minus all of the disadvantages of saltwater (I would prefer to come here!). Traverse City is a half hour drive away where you can visit wineries, explore nightlife, the casino, and much more. You can also visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes and a unique old-growth forest, Hartwick Pines, gives you a glimpse of Michigan before settlement. You MUST visit the famous sandbar which is a short drive away and accessible via public beach. My mom and I want to thank Melissa for the great memories. We will definitely return many times in the future. I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the greatest vacations I have ever had and maybe the most beautiful place I have ever visited and I have traveled a lot. Don’t miss out on this adorable cabin for an affordable price! Thanks Melissa!

Melissa has a little slice of heaven up in Kewadin. We spent a long weekend in the small cottage on the property and found everything to be just as promised. Melissa is incredibly friendly and easy to work with. Everything was clean and cozy and the property is gorgeous. Whether you visit Torch Lake often or are a first time traveler, I highly recommend Melissa's cottage for your stay. We loved looking out on the calm/clear waters during the day and our nightly bonfires on the shore in the evening. The cottage is about 45 minutes from Traverse City (which was a fun day trip) and the Traverse Bay/Lake Michigan is literally right across the road which was fun to explore. We were able to cook our own meals using the full kitchen and felt like we had plenty of room for the two of us. Thank you, Melissa - We look forward to coming and staying with you again next summer!

This is a great spot to be on Torch lake! The north end is much quieter for boating and water sports. Having access to the dock and the mooring was amazing!

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Yes, the north end is a quiet little oasis compared to the sandbar.

Great place to get away from it all. Enjoyed making a fire and fixing smores! Nice to use kayaks too! One bedroom with comfy bed. Futon in Livingroom area was ok for daughter. Kitchen was stocked well with necessities to cook. Awesome to have the view of Torch lake and dock to use. At the time it was too cold to swim but would love to return too next summer! Only concern would be that there is another cottage on the property that you would share the yard, beach, and dock with other renters.
