Car: Recommended

Waters Edge Resort is located 3 miles Northeast of Elk Rapids and the Eastern shore of Grand Traverse Bay. Family-oriented with a beach, boat docks, and located close to tennis, basketball and volleyball courts. Your cottage is only a few steps from the lake for rest and relaxation. Drive in to Alden or Elk Rapids in minutes for quaint shopping. Or if you need to spice it up, we are located only 20 miles south of Traverse City nightlife, parks and shopping. Chain of Lakes are here and very popular!
