Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy our newly remodeled home - a clean, modern aesthetic with finished basement and bright, sunny rooms. The large dinning area downstairs is perfect for family gatherings and games. And when you're ready to settle in, enjoy a movie on the flat-screen TV. Well kept, newly landscaped yard makes you feel at home in the friendly downtown neighborhood.

Bikes, beach gear, and some tennis and golf gear are available at the house for renters to use. Look for the info binder for brochures on local art galleries, restaurants and activities. There's enough in walking/biking distance to keep you happy throughout your stay, but if you're looking for daytrips, consider the local wineries, state parks, Mackinac Island, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and much more.

Wi-Fi is available in the house.

Cheers!

About Nicky Tobin

I was very lucky to grow up in Elk Rapids, one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I know. The spirit of my upbringing stayed with me through college in Arizona, a short professional career and finally as wife and mom in California. I look forward to my bi-annual trips 'home' to visit family and friends, and to let my kids run free on the beach or tumble in the snow. I like to say, 'You can take the girl out of Elk Rapids, but you can't take Elk Rapids out of the girl.' My husband and I own 'The Town House' with my brother and his wife. I keep track of the renters, and my sister-in-law takes care of the money. Our late father was the previous owner of the house and was well known in the community. We've had a great time collaborating on the renovation and transformation of his very 'utilitarian' style house to a home with beautiful form and perfect functionality.

Our best experience yet

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Clean, updated house with perfect space for six people and all of the instructions were perfect. I think we could comfortably fit two more people at least if we were visiting for a ski weekend? Chad, Kathy, Nicky and Bill were quick, thorough and thoughtful with their responses and answered any questions we had leading in. This is a beautiful home. Elk Rapids is a great little town and a short and easy drive to Old Mission or Leland, Glen Arbor etc. We loved our visit and hope to be able to rent this beautiful home again down the road. Thank you!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Renting this beautiful home made our sisters-in-law getaway weekend perfect.

It was very comfortable and we felt right "at home." It is clean and updated, exactly as the website described. We especially enjoyed the walk-out basement and big table for playing cards. The downstairs bedroom and modern full bathroom are a bonus, for sure. We enjoyed breakfast on the upstairs deck. It is so close to downtown and the beach and we did a lot of walking, shopping, exploring and dining. Everything we needed was provided by the owners and we highly recommend this home.

Heavenly!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit the Wine region, bringing my 88 year old Mother in Law, Sister in Law, Husband and Myself. Not only was the House clean, orderly and exactly as described, we felt home immediately!! Warm and inviting with space for all and everything!!

HIGHLY recommendable. The owner was very helpful and responsive. We hope to be back next year....
