About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Charming, updated and spacious 1880 colonial cottage right in the center of the Village of Elk Rapids. Grab a beach towel, walk out the back door and through the gate and you are at the coffee shop and internet cafe and all of the other shops and restaurants in the Village. Walk one block and you are at the beach park which includes great sandy beaches, a playground, tennis courts and basketball courts or you can choose either of two harbors on Lake Michigan and the Chain of Lakes for boating, fishing, tubing, water skiing. Or you can choose to go to the library which sits on a hill overlooking the harbor or the movies at the local theater.

This spacious, comfortably furnished three bedroom, 2 bath home has a downstairs bedroom with one double bed, and adjacent bath. Plus a living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and porch. Upstairs is a large master bedroom with a queen bed, plus a connected bath and laundry area. The second bedroom upstairs has two twin beds with an entrance to the master bath off the hallway. The house includes a two car garage and plenty of parking for boats, cars, bikes, fishing gear, and beach toys, so feel free to bring them.

Plus the backyard is a great place to barbeque and eat outdoors. It is also a great place to enjoy the food, wine and listen to the live music each "Wednesday Night on River Street."
