If you are looking for a quaint get-away, whether it be for a family vacation or romantic trip, look no further.

This is the best B&B / Hotel either of us have ever stayed at (move over Marriott). Even if you dislike B&B's you will love this place! Perfect for anyone over 18... couples, friends, families, honeymoon, etc. Harvey (the Inn keeper) and Merlin (K-9 Inn keeper) excitedly greet you and take you upstairs to your room.

Would highly recommend staying here. My husband & I stayed here celebrating our 10 year anniversary. Our stay was very relaxing. The Inn was very clean, cozy beds, & a great breakfast! Harvey made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay here again!

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!!!

harveybartel, Owner at Inn at Torch Lake, responded to this review

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

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

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. :-)
