                      Why the Owner Chose Elk Rapids:
                      My husband and I rented a house in Elk Rapids for a week every summer. We rented the same house for 15 years! When the owner decided to live in the house year round, we bought this house so our children would make wonderful memories, as we have, of this quaint, charming town.
