  • Fabulous Home/Ideal Location

    "Our stay in this fabulous home in the heart of the charming waterfront town of Elk Rapids was just perfect. The home exceeded all expectations, even though the photos and descriptions on the website were wonderful. Our weeklong stay included our family of four (two adults, two teens) plus one set of grandparents. The house set-up was perfect for our group. We all agreed that our favorite room was the bright and cheerful front porch (though every single room was lovely)! The kitchen was extremely well appointed and we were able to cook and entertain with ease. The beds were comfortable and we appreciated the handy laundry hampers in every room along with the nicely appointed laundry facilities in the basement. We were just thrilled with the location as in put us within walking distance of everything we could want or need including the beach, the library, “the Chute” (natural water slide in the river), a quaint movie theater, numerous restaurants (Siren Hall was a favorite), an ice cream shop (try the cherry-amaretto…yum!), a local historical museum, gift shops, a wonderful wine shop (complete with delicious gourmet food items and a helpful/knowledgeable owner!), picnic areas, a drug store, etc. The owner of the home was extremely helpful in every way and very easy to communicate with. We highly recommend this property to anyone considering a vacation get-away in beautiful northern Michigan!"

  • A SPECTACULAR GETAWAY ON THE BAY

    "From the moment we met Barbara, who welcomed us to her beautiful home, we knew we had struck it rich. We were gals, one of whom had never been to Michigan. We loved the lay out of the house, fabulous kitchen, eating area, lovely bedrooms, and most of all the deck. The house is beautifully maintained, and very clean. We rushed back home every evening to sit on the deck and watch the beautiful sunsets. What a way to end our perfect days. And our friend was totally impressed. We loved every minute of it, and hopefully we will be able to visit again one day."
