Recent Elk Rapids property reviews

  • Bride's last night of being single

    "We stayed in this lovely, historical home prior to and after our daughter's wedding in Elk Rapids, which is a nice place for a "destination wedding". The landlord allowed us to stay for a shortened stay as the wedding was not during the peak season. She was married at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the reception was at the Elk Rapids township hall. The home and the hall were both historical landmarks, which was very interesting. The location of the house was perfectly accessible for both venues. We enjoyed the services of the Beehive salon, which provided many spa services and helped to make the bride feel like a princess. The house was perfect with planning of room for our guests including my 91 year old mother, who had no trouble getting around the first floor. Everything that we needed was there. The decor was lovely... the colors and amenities made us feel very special. We have no complaints and would certainly use this home again... perhaps the next time for a vacation instead of to host and facilitate a wedding. The landlord was available by phone to answer any questions that we had. The only thing that we had difficulty with was the Direct t.v. as we were not familiar with how to access it for our 91 year old guest."

  • A nice cottage

    "I happen to be looking on Verbo for a cozy cottage on a lake near my Aunt who lives in Elk Rapids and I came across this cottage. We just recently rented it over the 4th of July because there are so many wonderful things going on around town. We found the cottage to be cozy and comfortable. Was wonderful being able to swim in the clean lake and have dinner outside with no bugs! Was easy to have the kids sleep there and they had plenty of room. The cottage was clean when we got there and owners were delightful and answered any questions. A great quiet stop for any weary traveler!"

  • Cottage stay on Birch Lake near Elk Rapids, MI

    "Just returned from a 6 day stay at this property and the stay was very nice. The property is very clean and furnishings adequate. This is a "cottage" in the true since, nothing fancy but certianly comfortable and good at bringing togather family or friends. There are some very nice eating establishments in nearby Elk Rapids but for much variety you will need to drive about 25 miles south to Traverse City. Leo was very helpful, made the trip easy. I would certianly return to the cottage on Birch Lake."

  • Great Michigan Vacation

    "Had a fantastic time at the Muma summer home! Great place for our large group, plenty of room. Wonderful beach. Enjoyed going down to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leelanau peninsula, dinner @ Bowers Harbor Inn on Old Mission Peninsula. Rented a pontoon on nearby Torch Lake for the day (18 minutes away). Did a whole day (9-9) and would do it again in a minute. Very private location, but with friendly, courteous neighbors nearby. This is what Pure Michigan means........looking forward to our next stay."
