About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 12+

As you pull your car right into the garage (there’s room for 2), plan on leaving it there all week, as everything is just blocks away. While the group unloads and scrambles to claim one of the 4 bedrooms, don’t stress, a good night sleep is what vacation is about, so we made sure every room has an amazing high end mattress with quality bedding. Simply pick if you want a King, one of the 3 Queen options, a Double, or one of the 2 Twins in the bunk room.

Once decided, fire up the large Weber grill on the deck, enjoy that first vacation drink, and let the kids run around the yard. Too tired to cook on the first night? Walk across the street or a couple steps further and enjoy any of the amazing restaurants in town, but hold off on the ice cream tonight. We have S’mores ready and waiting for you by the fire pit, welcome home.

The oversized hand built dining table will easily accommodate your entire party for breakfast and the plans to be made for the days adventures. Meal preparation will be easy with a fully stocked kitchen, and clean up means quickly loading up the dishwasher.

We suggest taking a stroll through the Farmer’s market outside, on your way to the beach. Or maybe a coffee, as you do some shopping around town? So many options from this fantastic starting point, the only question is when are you coming back?

So bring your family, your friend's family, a group of friends, or the race team and make our home, your home! After all, multiple hotel rooms, being in different places, trying to coordinate a meeting place can eliminate the entire point of a group weekend. (and increases your costs)

Make this vacation about time together, and share your stories with us, we look forward to hearing them.

About Leah

Growing up around Elkhart Lake we never realized how magical the area was until we grew older. Now, we find ourselves planning ways to get back and enjoy the area on a weekly basis. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do! Should it be in pit lane listening to the cars start their engines, taking a boat ride around Elkhart Lake, biking the kettles, enjoying dinner at the amazing restaurants the city has to offer, listening to local bands at the tiki bars, or enjoying time at our lovely home in downtown Elkhart Lake. Whichever your choice, we cannot wait for your visit! We look so forward to making many new friends in this endeavor together, and hope to see the same family and friends year after year.

Leah purchased this house in 2013

Why Leah chose East Central

Vacation memories are made over a nice dinner, around the fire pit with a beautiful sunset, or at the breakfast table, together. It's these little things; the game boards waiting to be played, the overly comfortable beds we have, the house warming gift waiting for you. These are all the things we do and more, as we want you to love this house and area as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

2 Secure Garage Parking Spots: Steeped in racing history and legends of the track. Elkhart Lake is known to display some beautiful automobiles, and our property has 2 secure garage spaces along with additional parking in the driveway. Feel free to use your cars by day, and know they are safely tucked away by night. These spaces are also available for rent independent of the property when available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was perfect for our stay here in Elkhart Lake! We were here for the Tudor United Sports Car racing at Road America. The track is only five minutes from the house:) It was so nice to have a cozy home close to the track. Thank you!

Charming House

  • 4 of 5

Our annual Cristmas get-away was again successful at this very charming home. The surprise of a decorated Christmas tree made it perfect. The whole rental process with detailed instructions for our stay was simple. As we spend the whole time playing games and just being together, we did not take advantage of the location in Elkhart Lake, but seriously would consider returning in the summer. Our big Christmas dinner was fantastic thanks to the well-equipped kitchen and huge dining room table to accommodate us. All-in-all we were very comfortable in this extremely clean, beautifully furnished older charming home. The only drawback I can think of is just 2 bathrooms for the 14 of us (6 of them teenagers). But there was certainly enough towels for everyone!

I would highly recommend this home-away-from-home!

Adored it!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited the moment we drove up- we have rented many houses before and this was

our favorite by far. We came with 4 twentysomething children and we had a wonderful family vacation

The house was so clean, so cute and comfortable. The reading nook, the kitchen and the kids favorite

the country table in the dining room.

Great vacation with a wonderful house and town

The beach is AMAZING

Great home in town!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed staying in the lovely home! Nine adults fit in very well! The house is close to everything in town--the wedding festivities were at the Osthoff Resort...walking distance from the home! Great location, clean and neat, accommodating owners, and nice neighbors -- what more can you ask for? Nice place!!!

Loved our Elkhart Lake stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house had a great location and wonderful amenities for our annual family gathering. We have family in Elkhart, Plymouth, Madison, St. Louis, Oklahoma City and England! We've enjoyed our trips to Elkhart Lake and Plymouth for 30 years since my husband moved away to St Louis and over the years as our family has grown, we've outgrown some of our bunking arrangements with local family and have needed to rent our own place. This is by far the best one we've had, as it allowed us to walk and bike ride anywhere around town, drive 5 minutes to play golf and host a dinner with 35 friends and relatives one night without a problem! The kitchen was wonderful. The 3 upstairs bedrooms and one downstairs bedroom were well-appointed and comfortable. I wish there were more than two bathrooms, but we actually didn't have too many incidents of "bathroom envy". :-) My only suggestion would be that the bathroom doors have a latch lock of some sort installed to insure privacy. There were more than enough extra pillows, sheets, blankets and towels in the house for overload, but we really didn't need them. Great house - great vacation. We look forward to renting it again in the future.

Owner's Response: Wow!!! So excited that you got to spend so much quality family time and that our home was a perfect place for you gathering. Elkhart is such an amazing town and it such a great vacation spot! We will definitely look into putting little locks on the doors to ensure privacy:) Thanks for the tip! So glad you loved it and look forward to your return!
