North Palm Beach, Florida.

Great for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic time at this historical home with 5 large bedrooms that made the 4 grandchildren, their parents and we grandparents very comfortable. The library was full of games for all ages and the garage had a pool table, table tennis and air hockey The weather was unusually hot for Northern Michigan and although there was no air conditioning there were multiple fans and everyone went in the lake across the street to cool off. We enjoyed the shopping and restaurants we could walk to in Elk Rapids and not so busy as some of the nearby tourist towns. The owner was great with any needs ( we couldn't find tools for the grill and they were provided within 1/2 hour of our request). Everyone is looking forward to another summer vacation at this beautiful spot.

More Room Than Expected - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was larger than the photos indicate and the location is walking distance from town. We had 3 families and had plenty of space. We walked across the street to the beach, which has a large shallow area that is perfect for smaller children. The neighborhood feels less like a Resort town and more like an Up North community.

The property owner made herself available if needed, but we didn't require any assistance. The home was clean and has a lot of windows. We planned on making more day trips to T.C., but we ended up enjoying the house and Elk Rapids far more than expected. We will likely go back next summer.

Great for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

A large group of friends came up for the weekend and had a great time! Perfect location, walking distance to downtown Elk Rapids, beach across the street for swimming and bonfires, as well as a huge playground in the park across the street for people with kids. There were a lot of us and we all slept comfortably and had a ton of space to relax and enjoy our vacation. The kitchen had everything we needed and we ate in for most meals. The house was very clean and well kept. Great stay!
