Charming, updated and spacious 1880 colonial cottage right in the center of the Village of Elk Rapids. Grab a beach towel, walk out the back door and through the gate and you are at the coffee shop and internet cafe and all of the other shops and restaurants in the Village. Walk one block and you are at the beach park which includes great sandy beaches, a playground, tennis courts and basketball courts or you can choose either of two harbors on Lake Michigan and the Chain of Lakes for boating, fishing, tubing, water skiing. Or you can choose to go to the library which sits on a hill overlooking the harbor or the movies at the local theater.
This spacious, comfortably furnished three bedroom, 2 bath home has a downstairs bedroom with one double bed, and adjacent bath. Plus a living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and porch. Upstairs is a large master bedroom with a queen bed, plus a connected bath and laundry area. The second bedroom upstairs has two twin beds with an entrance to the master bath off the hallway. The house includes a two car garage and plenty of parking for boats, cars, bikes, fishing gear, and beach toys, so feel free to bring them.
Plus the backyard is a great place to barbeque and eat outdoors. It is also a great place to enjoy the food, wine and listen to the live music each "Wednesday Night on River Street."

Beautiful House And Amazing Vacation
Beautiful House And Amazing Vacation
I first arrived in Elk Rapids to meet with the owner at the rental house. My first thought of the house from the outside was a very beautiful colonial. As I walked in the house it was just as pictured. Janet showed me around the house and was very helpful with any questions I had. I could tell that that house was well maintained and loved. Janet was extremely nice and super helpful on everything. She also told me about many places to eat as well as things that were going on in town. Throughout my stay I came to the realization that everything in the description given on this website was 100 percent accurate. It is close to everything in this small town. It is spacious and comfortable, perfect for families on vacation. I plan to rent this house for years to come!

Recently vacationed in Elk Rapids with my family and friends at this great house I hae been renting with vrbo for yrs and have not been disappointed yet. This house was just as described on vrbo and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there , great in town location, everything was supplied we love to cook and the kitchen was well supplied as well as use of outdoor grill. My teenagers had friends visit and I was completely comfortable with them walking in and around town and beaches. Nice backyard we ate almost every meal out there. The house provided plenty of space to spread out even when guests came up to visit. We found the house clean and neat. It was a great week for this family thanks again Janet for sharing your home with us. I would easily recommend this house esp to anyone who wants to be near the water and in town.

I have been renting in Elk Rapids for 16 years and this was the first time I was disappointed. There was no central air, two window air conditioners (that were not sufficient to cool the home) and windows were difficult to open. No wireless internet as advertised and only a handful of channels, the property was dirty, the kitchen had no doors on several cabinets and very unorganized, lots of clutter and the backyard, where you would want to enjoy the up north, was not well maintained. There was a moldy smell throughout the home. I would not recommend this property to a friend or a relative.
