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 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

The Inn at Torch Lake was a pleasant surprise for a family who has come to Torch Lake for years and previously stayed with friends or drove from Petoskey for day trips. The Inn has 5 guest suites that are as good as any 5 star hotel in our experience. The innkeeper, Harvey, leaves no detail unmet including making homemade... More

5 Stars and beyond. Harvey is a master of hosting. He is all about his guests. The Lake Skagemog Room is so comfy yet stunning. Breakfasts are superb. Harvey is a gem. He so subtly portrays the fine gentry stock that is his essence. The two of us loved it all. Steph & Boe

We were introduced to The Inn at Torch Lake, and it's Innkeeper, Harvey, by friends of ours. We participated in their annual couples weekend and thoroughly loved it. The location is great - near cafes, bars, shops, the lake. The rooms are great - clean, large, well-kept, quiet. The breakfast is great - delicious, timely, creative. We can't say enough... More
