PLEASE NOTE: HISTORICALLY TO KEEP THE COST DOWN TO RENTERS I DID NOT ACTIVATE ONLINE BOOKING UNTIL IT WAS REQUIRED. As a result there are no listed reviews. Many renters come back year after year and I have always had strong compliments on the home and rental experience.
This historic home was stripped to the base frame and completely updated and modernized. We added granite countertops, a marble bathroom, and refinished wood floors. All the comforts of home with a full kitchen stocked with all potential necessities. This home is in outstanding condition. The town is a wonderful close community, and matches your imagination of small town living.
Wake up and go for a jog or bike ride and stop at the local coffee shop and bakery. Restaurants range from sophisticated to casual home cooking. The town is completely surrounded by water with the East Bay of Lake Michigan along the west side of town and Elk Lake to the east. You can travel by boat from Elk Lake to Torch Lake, known as the Caribbean of the North (National Geographic.) Elk Rapids is known for festivals and art fairs, and during the summer on Wednesday nights, the streets are closed for food and entertainment.
This area is an ideal spot to hunt for morel mushrooms in the spring, enjoy the beaches in the summer, do color tours in the fall and ski in the winter. Elk Rapids is a hidden gem in Northern Michigan and once discovered you will be back every year
