About Stewart and Marcy Grudzien

Out of all the places in the world I have traveled for business, I love northern Michigan and the waters of Benzie County the most. My wife is an interior designer and this rental home gave us the opportunity to completely renovate an authentic 1870's structure and transform it into a bright, colorful vacation cottage.

Stewart and Marcy Grudzien purchased this house in 2009

Why Stewart and Marcy Grudzien chose Elberta

Elberta is near our primary residence and right on the water. The town is quaint and close to so many of the attractions that make coastal Northern Michigan famous, including a pristine Lake Michigan beach.

What makes this house unique

Expertly renovated and filled with light and color, this house has water views, fresh breezes and peaceful sunsets. Eagles soar overhead as you grill the day's catch and fix salad from the farmer's market.

Great Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe I'm the first review for this vacation home. Totally recommend it! It's clean, very comfortable and has a homey feel to it. Very nicely decorated. We had a full house with 8 people and it didn't feel crowded. Beautiful Elberta/Frankfort area, close to dining - two nice restaurants within walking distance. Close to park with playground and the Elberta beach. Only negative is that it doesn't have AC and someone with disabilities or elderly may have a difficult time with the high back step and shower but I still have to give it 5 stars.
