170' Lakefront w beach, sprawling green lawns, 21 beds, 2 kitchens, 4 bath
Why David chose Rapid City
There is no other property with as much lakefront, beach, and grand accommodations on the south end sand bar side of Torch Lake. Your people wont even need boats to go back and forth to the family friendly sandbar with waist deep waters to make your way. Or enjoy the most refreshing swim in one of National Geographic's claimed top 10 most beautiful lakes in the world right off of the property's beach. Family Reunion, Friends all gathering..... you will not find 1 home on the south side as accommodating as this one.

Amazing family cottage - Amazing family vacation
Having never been to Torch Lake we were delighted to find we chose the perfect location for our summer vacation! You can walk from the home's beach to the main sand bar to the west as well as a long sandbar that runs parallel to the shore line to the east. This cabin had it all! Our three children (ages 6,8,10) loved the private beach with a firepit and the yard to play games. The loved having their own room with bunk beds and a view of the lake from their beds! We rented a boat for a few days of our stay to go tubbing but found that with the ability to walk out so far into the lake from our beach we really didn't need it everyday. Bruce was there to make sure everything was great and we were pleased that the place could not have been clearer or better taken care of! The deck was the perfect spot to eat our meals outside and my husband loved having a BBQ. A great value for a great location. Highly recommend the Upper Story and we hope to be back soon!
This is a beautiful property right on the Sandbar.
We had a wonderful week at Torch Lake. Bruce was so accommodating and the cottage is beautifully decorated. Would love to stay there again.
Amazing Family Property
Bruce was there to greet us and show us the property which includes a beach with an amazing view of the lake, a fire pit with benches for the whole family and a lawn area for lounging and relaxing. The inside of the apartment is great with plenty of room for two families with small children, the deck is large and includes a grill, picnic table and chairs for anybody that enjoys spending time with their family while meals are being prepared. The bedrooms and bathroom are large and stocked with towels and linens.
Now let me tell you about the best part... That is Bruce. We had family in from the UK and everything that we needed was made available for us whether it was some cleaning supplies (small kids and all), to water floats, we wanted for nothing. If you need anything just call or text Bruce and it is taken care of. He wants you to enjoy your time with your family and makes it very easy to do just that. That is what the "Up North" experience is, family, friends and relaxing days spent in a beautiful place. Bruce makes all that happen and we couldn't have been happier with the week that we spent at the Upper Story at Torch.
It is my aim to make sure all families enjoy my rental property.
Perfect Place at the south end of torch!
We stayed at Bruce's place July 2015. His rental was beautiful, clean and cozy, with a great view. Being located at the south end at the sandbar was Awesome. We have rented on torch in past years, by far the upper story was the BEST! Bruce was a great host making sure we had everything we needed and giving us ideas of places to see and visit around the lake. Thanks for a memorable week!!!
beautiful view, great rental
The view from the beach at this property is amazing. The place is clean and well stocked and Bruce is a great host. It would be hard to pick a better location. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Perfect summer vacation.
Best View on Torch
We stayed at the upper story the week of July 4th 2015. This pace is absolutely amazing! Very clean, and homey. Our boats were right out front, and could be walked out to the sandbar. Bruce was an amazing host. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful view of the lake, and the fireworks on Friday. To thumbs up Bruce! See you next year!
