Elk Rapids house description

Drive up & park for the week! 1/2 block from the sandy beaches of Grand Traverse Bay/Lake Michigan and the same distance from downtown Elk Rapids.

We invite you to stay at our very well appointed home. No amenity has been withheld. Our home has been updated throughout and includes a remodeled kitchen and all new furnishings.

Return from the beach or courts & take an outdoor shower, read a book on the front porch or watch a movie on the flat screen TV. Multiple areas to gather with family and friends to reminisce about the day at the beach, shopping, sailing or golfing, while watching the stars.

The Arts & Crafts style home was built in 1919 and has all the character of that style. 10' ceilings, built in bookcases and wood floors downstairs & carpet upstairs. Decorated in a combination of antique and contemporary/rustic furnishings it is ready to walk into and start relaxing. Bring your iPod, iPad, iPhone to enjoy your music on the tower stereo system.

The kitchen has every amenity needed for picnic lunches or gourmet dinners cooked either indoor or outdoor. There is a large dining area and spacious family room which make it a perfect vacation spot for 6 to 8 people. There are four bedrooms; two with queen beds, one with a double bed, & one room with two twin beds. The home also has two full sized bathrooms.

Our home is within easy walking distance for kids to run to the ice cream store or pizza shop. Elk Rapids is the perfect spot for families to enjoy the summer or couples to gather and dine in excellent restaurants in both Elk Rapids & Traverse City. (15 miles).

We also have a variety of bikes for you to use, beach towels and beach chairs as well as indoor games and wide selection of dvd's for your enjoyment. We also have a separate ice machine for those cool summer drinks.
