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.

Very conveniently located and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight enjoyed our stay a great deal. The home is located directly across the street from one of the local establishment but we never heard any noise. The home is also located walking distance from many of the other Elkhart Lake attractions. It’s a wonderful place we would heartily endorse.

Great Experience

Amazing Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was incredible and the location couldn't have been better for our wedding weekend activities along the lake. There was plenty of room for our group of eleven. We had friends staying with us from all across the country and our short stay here made us feel at home.

I would highly recommend!

Great Place for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a family gathering; something for everybody to do in Elkhart Lake. The location is perfect with so much within walking distance. We rent houses for vacations regularly and this is the best-maintained rental house I have been in.

Great House; Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend here for a peaceful getaway. The house is in an unbeatable location to walk in town. It is also VERY clean and comfortable. A great choice for any/all with the exception of elderly folks, who may not want to climb the extra-steep staircase (although there is a bedroom on the main level for them).

Also, the management was great in responding to a minor issue with a new water heater....thanks for the quick response on a holiday weekend!

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 Elkhart Lake

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!
