About The Owner

We have owned this condo since 1984 and have enjoyed it every season with our daughter. Now we are retired and still love the area. It is like a breath of fresh air everytime we come to our condo. The amenities in this area just keep us coming back for more. Hope the experience is the same for you.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1984

Why The Owner chose Elk Lake

We had been coming up to this area for years before we bought this unit. We stayed in one of the condos when it was first built and decided to buy. The closeness to the water and woods makes us feel in touch with nature and relaxed. Our condo was perfect for us because of the first floor. It was great with our daughter because she could play on the green space and we still had no noise from the pool area.

Our stay was wonderful! The condo is clean, modern & in a great location, we plan to return!

  • 4 of 5

We would recommend this condo rental, it works very nicely for a small group or family. The location is nice if you want to be just outside of the traverse city busyness, we spent time in elk rapids and TC so it was ideal for us, it's clean, nicely decorated and modern. The kitchen provided everything we needed. Thank you for a very nice place to spend a long weekend up north!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in this very nice, comfortable condo. The condo was very clean which is very important to us. Great location and very well furnished. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone visiting Michigan. Near a lot of good restaurants and only 6 miles from Traverse City. The only missing thing was a washer and dryer in the condo. That would be the only negative. Everything else was perfect.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well stocked for a long weekend trip. Great location for going into Traverse City and even north to Charlevoix and Harbor Springs! Very clean and comfortable bed and couches. We didn't use the pool or beach but looked great!

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Nicely updated 1 bedroom/1 bathroom condo. I have to say this condo was nicely stocked with amenities I often have needed to purchase in the past (paper towel, tissues). The only drawback for me was the small kitchen and not having a full stove/oven. I often like to make our evening meal at the VRBO and we were limited on what we could cook with just the two burners. Overall great experience.
