About the Property

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 3,200 Sq Ft., Beach, Dock, Great Yard, Kids Playset

WE ARE CURRENTLY BOOKED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2017.

Elk Lake is one of the premier lakes in the Midwest. Torch gets all of the press, but ask the locals and most say they prefer Elk Lake for its quietness and charm. There are 12 sq. miles of beautiful aqua blue water to explore on Elk Lake. If that is not enough, you can head up the chain of lakes to Skegemog, Torch, Clam, or Bellaire Lake.

This home is located on the southern shore of the lake. The entire lake bottom is sandy and the water gradually drops off on the southern end. You can walk out about 100 yards before the water is over your head. One of the better panfishing spots on the lake is only about 150 yds from the dock.

The lakeside deck is covered and runs along most of the length of the house. A gas grill is adjacent to the deck. There is a picnic table and chairs for everyone to escape from the sun if need be. A large fire pit is lakeside to relax at during the evening and take in all of the stars.


The home was renovated in 2006 and now has 6 well appointed bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a dining room, and two living areas.

The lower level features a master suite that looks out onto the lake and a kitchen with granite countertops and a commercial Jenn Air Range. The dining room off the kitchen seats 8. Additional seating for meals is available at the breakfast booth in the kitchen, upstairs at the game table, and outside at the picnic table. Also on the lower level is a guest bedroom with an attached full bath, a living area, and french doors leading out onto the large covered porch lakeside.

The second story has 4 bedrooms (one is a bunk room that sleeps 8), 1.5 baths, a living area, and a game table overlooking the lake.

The lakeside yard is grassy, with plenty of room for bocce, croquet, and kids to play. The road side of the house has a second large covered porch. There is a play-set complete with swings and a slide in this part of the yard.

There is a boat ramp less then a mile away that you have access to.

The home is heated and cooled with forced air.

Please see links under owner info. for additional videos of the house.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions.

WE ARE CURRENTLY BOOKED FOR 2017 AND DO NOT HAVE ADDITIONAL AVAILABILITY.

This beautiful lake home is 15 minutes from both Traverse City and Elk Rapids. World class wineries, golf, gambling and restaurants are all only a short drive away. If you are ambitious you can even ride a bike on the TART (Traverse area recreational trail) into town. This area is a mecca for outdoor activities from biking, to hiking, to cross country skiing, to horseback riding - it is all within minutes. And of course the Traverse City Cherry Festival and Elk Rapids Harbour Days are always wonderful events to enjoy with the family during the summer.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: This home is owned by myself, my brother and our wives. It was purchased jointly as a vacation home for our families in 2012 and has been thoroughly enjoyed over the last couple years.

Why the Owner Chose Williamsburg, MI, USA:
We reside in the mid-Michigan area and wanted a home under a 3 hour drive, on a beautiful lake, and close to abundant activities. After an exhausting search of lakes and homes we unanimously decided Elk Lake was the place for us, specifically the southern end of Elk.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ideal Location: Under 3 hours from Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Flint. Only 15 minutes to Traverse, Kalkaska and Elk Rapids. Room For All: This home can comfortably accommodate 17 people in beds - the most of any home on VRBO on Elk Lake. With two separate living rooms it is perfect for large families - send the kids upstairs while the adults relax downstairs.
