Was-Wah-Go-Ning has 700 feet of property on the shore of Torch Lake surrounded  by 25 acres of woods and fields. On that frontage are three houses, two are rented while the third is occupied by the owner's family. The houses are separated by natural areas and do not share side yards, driveways, docks or any facilities. 


The crystal clear waters and sandy bottom of Torch Lake are ideal for swimming, boating, sailing and a variety of water activities. Boating opportunities abound with 105 nautical miles to explore. Not only do you have the lake itself, but also the two main river systems that are part of the lower Chain of Lakes that reach from the town of Bellaire to The Port of Elk Rapids. A short boat ride from Was-Wah-Go-Ning brings you to the popular "sand bar" located at the south end of the lake and the community at the Torch River Bridge. Another boating destination is the port of Alden, across the lake from the houses, as well as the marina and restaurant facilities at the mouth of Clam River. Nearby boat rentals provide a variety of equipment or you can bring your own.

Approximately 25 acres of the Was-Wah-Go-Ning property, with its surrounding woods and fields, is unsurpassed for nature hikes, bicycling, jogging or just relaxing in quiet surroundings. Many of the finest fishing, recreational diving, golf, tennis and sight-seeing attractions in Northern Michigan are available.

Also close by, the surrounding communities offer a wide variety of artistic and cultural pursuits, excellent shopping and antiquing opportunities and a wide assortment of restaurants including a number of those catering to the gourmet. The houses are supplied with brochures and suggestions to help you explore the many quaint, picturesque and historical villages and towns in the area. From the houses you can range as far north as Mackinac Island, south to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park and explore Michigan's wine country and the Leelanau Peninsula. 

Recognized by National Geographic as one of the three most beautiful lakes in the world, the colors and clarity of Torch Lake leaves one with lasting memories of a vacation ideally suited for families or small groups.
