The Giddings Little Cottage is a one-room (+ bedroom/bath) summer family cottage that was built in the 1950's. It is funky and rustic with simple decor, but it is ON THE WATER! So please do not book it if you are expecting a hotel experience. It is on the west side of our Torch Lake property, which has a beautiful, sandy, gradual beach clear to the bottom and ideal for kids. Our beach is great for swimming, paddling, and boating.
