The Bach, (pr.“batch”), is a stand alone cabin on the east shore of Torch Lake in Michigan. We call it The Bach because it is in the style of New Zealand's hillside “Baches”.

Our shortest rental period is one week. Our rental week goes from Thursday to Thursday. Our renters requested not checking in/out on the weekend. They want a whole weekend on Torch.

I kind of feel like not writing a great review just because I almost want to be selfish and make sure the place is available again when I want to go to torch lake next year... but the place was great. Only a couple minute walk to the lake, near Alden and Bellaire. Cabin was very …
