Beautiful rooms, very good food, delightful host, friendly dog, good shopping nearby. My only recommendation would be to somehow have enough seating at breakfast for all guests. I will definitely return!!!

Hello Thanks for the great review. I know seating is a problem when I'm totally booked. Many mornings some guests prefer to eat in their rooms and it lessens the crowd in the common area. I plan to add a deck so guests can eat outside when weather permits. More

Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, gourmet breakfast, and a wonderful host. Doesn't get any better than that! Our home away from home! We are spoiled by this place. Thank you Harvey for making each stay more memorable than the last.

The Inn at Torch Lake is a must visit place. Harvey is a gracious host and a first class chef. We stayed in the Elk room which was a sumptuous room with a Jacuzzi tub. Can't say enough good things about the Inn. But I will say that Harvey's dog Merlin is one of the cutest smartest dogs around. Merlin... More

It's been a few months since my wife and I visited Torch Lake, but we wanted to be sure to leave our review to recommend The Inn at Torch Lake. Harvey was a fantastic host and made great recommendations for the area. We had just spent a few days in Traverse City and just wanted to relax. We enjoyed walking... More

The Inn, Harvey, the room and the food were all excellent. Harvey is a wonderful host and has provided luxurious and comfortable rooms. The breakfast far exceeded my expectations from previous B&B stays. My room was cozy, but also elegant. Everything I needed was there - including a fireplace. :-)

The Inn at Torch Lake is a fantastic B & B. The room was luxurious with a fireplace and personal deck. I'm a breakfast guy and Harvey, the host, made some of the best breakfasts I have ever had. His knowledge of the area is exceptional and every recommendation was spot on, whether it was where to eat or where... More

We stayed at the Inn in October 2015. The place was spotless. Perhaps the cleanest I've ever stayed in; and being a parent of 3 travel hockey players...I have stayed in hundreds of places. Awesome job Harvey, from the check in to check out. Breakfast was fantastic, quite setting... so needless to stay. This is a must stay.

We loved this Inn. Harvey was amazing and a perfectionist in every way. He does it all, and does it well. The rooms are immaculate, beautiful decor and large. We were in each, except the apartment. However, on-line pictures look beautiful. Harvey does whatever is needed to please his guests. The breakfasts were amazing, in fact, the only meal we... More

We stayed at the Inn at Torch Lake for a week in September, and we already can't wait to return. We stayed a few nights in the apartment and moved down the hall to the Torch Lake Room to try a different experience. Both were superb with comfortable beds and plenty of room to relax and enjoy the time away... More
