Elk Rapids house description

This executive lakefront estate is what dreams are made of! Artfully landscaped and expertly remodeled in 2011, this four-season lake home is the perfect setting for your next vacation. Situated on 100' of private sugar sand beach on the shallow Lake Michigan coastline, the days are long and lazy. Sit on the beach under the umbrella, or read a book in the hammocks overlooking the crystal blue Lake Michigan water.

Nights bring beautiful sunsets, dinner on the veranda overlooking the water, and bonfires on the beach. Create memories you'll recall for a lifetime.

With five bedrooms and four full bathrooms, this sophisticated, custom-decorated home will exceed your expectations and meet your every need. From soaking Jacuzzi tubs to a wood fireplace and floor to (cathedral) ceiling windows overlooking East Bay, this private retreat is both relaxing and invigorating.

Walk to the quaint marina village of Elk Rapids, where you're sure to enjoy the library, theater, expansive beaches, tennis and basketball courts, delicious restaurants and the resort lifestyle.
When you're looking for a little more action, venture a few minutes more to Traverse City, Charlevoix or Petoskey for gourmet cuisine, winery tours, water and snow skiing, world-renowned golf, beautiful scenic drives, and more.

Wonderful day trips include Glen Arbor (don't miss Blu restaurant), Leland, the Sleeping Bear Dunes (remember, this is The Most Beautiful Place in America!), Mackinac Island, Harbor Springs, and more!

This home is unparalleled in location, amenities, design and decor. You will fall in love!

Master bedroom with King bed, bay views, walk in closet and large en suite bathroom.

Two main floor bedrooms with Queen beds and sitting areas.

One lower level (full walkout, windowed) bedroom with two twin beds.

Complete in-house gym, additional lower level TV area, main floor laundry, two offices, expansive eat in kitchen (double dishwashers!), and formal dining room.
