ReviewsWrite a review
We have stayed here the past two years and have had a great time. Janet, the owner is next door and very helpful with any questions or needs. The yard is perfect for washers, badminton or croquet. The deck is great for outdoor eating and the deck by the water has a wonderful view of the sunsets.

About the owner: After a long career designing and developing training programs for corporations, I have 'almost' retired in the village where I spent my summer vacations.
Why the Owner Chose Elk Rapids:
My Mother and I bought this home when it was a 'boat shop.' The previous owner built a 30 foot sailboat in this house. My artist Mom updated it as her permanent residence. You cannot build a boat in it anymore, but the pattern for the sailboat remains on the upstairs wood floors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Access to the entire Chain of Lakes including Elk Lake and Torch Lake by boat from your back door. A house filled with beautiful art inside and the beauty of nature outside.
