Elk Rapids house description

Welcome to our family cottage on Elk Lake, part of the chain of lakes famous for their caribbean aqua blue-green hues. Our ranch style home is located on a 1+ acre lot with 100' of lakefront on a quiet deadend street. The entrance to our property is wooded with a winding drive, giving you that 'up north' feel. The back yard is large and grassy, perfect for lawn games and bonfires. The lawn gently slopes to the lake.

Walk right into the water or enter from the dock ladder. The water is crystal clear and the bottom is sandy (about 10 ft from shore - smooth rocks out to that point). Elk lake is an all sports lake and boat and jet ski rentals are available from local marinas. Bringing your boat? LAUNCH YOUR BOAT 4 DOORS DOWN, or at one of the local marinas, and store it in our boat lift (up to 3600lbs) for quick access during your stay.

Our home has a screened in porch with a lake view and a patio with a woods view. The large living room offers views of the lake and plenty of seating. The full kitchen is stocked with appliances, utensils and dishes. The master suite includes a bath, king size bed and private door to a small deck. The 2nd bedroom offers 2 twin beds and the 3rd has a queen with pocket door access to the main bath. Linens and washer/dryer are included.

There are tables and chairs on the master suite deck and front patio, as well as a picnic table and chairs for relaxing in the back yard. Roast marshmallows by the lake while taking in a beautiful sunset.

Head to downtown Elk Rapids by car or boat to explore and enjoy the local fare. There are many unique galleries, shops and restaurants. Play a game of golf on one of northern Michigan's finest courses or vist a local orchard or winery. And don't forget the fabulous fall color!

              Location

              Car: Necessary

              You're only minutes by car or boat to the marina in beautiful downtown Elk Rapids. Enjoy shopping in the cute downtown shops and galleries. Visit the beach for Grand Traverse Bay swimming and sandcastles or enjoy the tennis courts, play ground or various local festivals. Grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants or pick up groceries for a cookout at the cottage.

              Visit famous Traverse City or Charlevoix, or one of the quaint beach towns in the area such as Alden - all are within 45 minutes.

              LAUNCH YOUR BOAT 4 DOORS DOWN and store it in our lift for immediate access during your stay (up to 3600lbs). Don't have a boat? Rent one at one of the local marinas. Spend a day navigating the chain of lakes from Elk Lake to Torch Lake, or launch a boat at the Torch River Marina, which is minutes away by car.

              Some of Michigan's best golf can be found within minutes of our cottage!

               

              Manager info

              About: Our family lived in the area for a few years during the 1970's. In that short time this area of the state captured our hearts and imaginations and continues to draw us back.

              Why Elk Rapids:
              From sugar sand beaches, beautiful fall foliage and famous festivals such as the National Cherry Festival, this area has something for everyone. The crystal clear aqua water in the chain of lakes, including Elk Lake, rivals the Caribbean - this area is a boater's paradise. Thanks to the glacier carved bluffs this is also a golfer's paradise. Some of the most challenging and breathtaking courses are minutes from our cottage.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Nestled in the woods, our property provides your family privacy. Our dock and boat lift (up to 3600lbs) are directly out your back door as are sunset views on the lake.
