ReviewsWrite a review
We just had our 8th years stay at the "Brownhouse." It's an excellent place to stay for familiies large and small. It accomidates our large family very nicely. The owners are extremeily friendly and the house is alway spotless upon our arrivlal. I completely agree with the previous review. The views, waterfront, land are beautiful. We look forward to our vacation at the "Brownhouse" every year.

We have had the pleasure of renting this house for the past 8 years during our annual trip to Michigan. There is something very magical about "The Brownhouse" (as it is called on the sign by the front door). It has great Elk Lake frontage, and is only a 5 minute BIKE from downtown Elk Rapids. We never run out of things to do. The yard is huge and perfect for Bocce, frisbee, Badminton, Volleyball, or just spreading out some chairs and sunbathing. I recommend bringing bikes because it is such an easy bike to a cool downtown. I highly recommend staying here if you are coming to Elk Rapids, or even if you are coming to other areas from Traverse City to the East and North.

House was charming and accommodated our group quite well. The property is large with plenty of room for everyone to do whatever they wanted outside. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather which made our stay so much more enjoyable. Really like the extra refrigerator in the garage as we used it the entire time. Liked the area the house was located and the proximity to the Village Market and restaurants. Owner was very responsive to inquiries and easy to deal with. Would definitely go back! The only negative is we would have liked to bring our dog which wasn't permitted.
