The Turtle Creek Casino is 5 miles away. The Horse Show by the Bay is 6 miles away. Traverse City is only 14 miles away with all the opportunites for entertainment of a tourist oriented city.
The 80 foot dock and moorings make boating convenient and enjoyable -- Elk Lake is a large, deep, clear lake that offers 45 miles of boating on the Chain of Lakes. A large fire pit at beach with plenty of firewood makes evenings a joy. Of course there are picnic tables, lawn chairs, and chaise lounges at the waterfront, as well as at the house. Badminton and volley ball can be played on any of three lawn areas. We have a canoe and rowboat available.
Year Purchased: 1964
About the owner: We are a retired school teacher and semi retired auto executive and consultant. We have three adult children that were raised in this house, and 8 grand children. Our primary recreation is boating on this chain of lakes and the great lakes.
Why the Owner Chose Williamsburg, MI, USA:
We offer the "family compound experience", sharing the largest lakefront property in the township with our family. We have family history in the area (my grand father settled on the next lake on the chain when he came to America in 1860) and it is a beautiful area to live and play in.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You have the opportunity to share a former resort with the owner couple. You have privacy and recreation activities available on the property, as well as many shopping and sightseeing opportunities in the near area. There is an indian casino five miles away, a nice tourist city (Traverse City) 14 miles away, several ski areas within a 60 mile radius, local festivals, a nationally acclaimed horse show, and the lakes and trees of northern Michigan. Boaters can explore over 40 miles of the Antrim County chain of lakes, including Elk, Torch, Skegemog, and Clam lakes, as well as Elk, Torch, Clam, and Grass rivers.
