First off, I would like to say I read all the wonderful reviews about this place and was very hopeful coming here. My husband booked it and assured me everything on this lake is nice. WRONG! Don't get me wrong, location was wonderful, however, the room was DISGUSTING! As soon as you walked in the door you got a blow... More

We got so lucky to do a road trip to Torch Lake without any plans and found this gem that had vacancy. During check in, Michelle, one of the owners who is so kind, explained some people book a year in advance, especially for the lake front room...and I understand why!!!! If you are able to get room 9 (8... More

There is something about Torch Lake and it's unique beauty that calls us back year after year. Northwind is a great way to experience the lake. The affordable and flexible accommodations offer you a great view and access to the lake. We really enjoy bringing our boat and exploring Torch along with the other accessable lakes. After a day on... More

I have been vacationing on Torch Lake since the mid 1980s. My family just loves it there and it is one of our absolute favorite vacation spots ! With that said, we have stayed at Northwind Resort for the past 20 years and have been there through several different owners and many updates. I have read all the reviews on... More

My family has been renting from Northwind Resort for the last 20 years and we have worked with 4 different owners. The sisters that currently own Northwind have been the nicest and most welcoming. They are friendly, accommodating and make you feel like you are part of their family. This is by far my family's family vacation spot. There is... More

The resort is one of a kind on beautiful Torch Lake. We are boaters and you can dock right at the resort. All the amenities of home in most units, microwave, toaster, coffeepot, refridgerator, dishes ,nice picnic tables, grills and campfires. Nice to meet and interact with other families. Nothing like the stars above at night and water glistening from... More

We just returned from our trip to Torch Lake. This was our 4th year in a row to stay at the Northwind Resort. WHAT A GREAT LOCATION! The owners have always been friendly and welcoming and we always meet nice people on the large deck overlooking the water. Excellent spot to watch the parade of boats as they head out... More

This was our first time staying at the resort. I was nervous after reading the reviews, but decided to give it a try anyways. I will say we had a great time on our vacation. They had a dock for us to use, which was an added bonus. They had a small beach for my young daughter to play on.... More

We have stayed here 5 different times. Each time we have booked in the winter and have found the communication to be good regarding planning our trip. We have always been sent brochures that include all the "rules" so to speak. They are common "rules", that most facilities have. The sisters that own this do it on a rotation basis... More

My daughter and I truly enjoyed our time at this resort. Being a single mom it was never overwhelming. The property was just right for us. My daughter was able to swim in the lake and play with her sand toys on the beach, as well as play soccer on the grass. When we checked in Diana and Dolly were... More
