Property description

Water front property on Elk Lake. Newly renovated with tile and laminate floors. Private, immaculate cottage with open floor plan, just feet from sandy beach. Shallow sandy lake bottom extends yards out off shore. Safe for swimming or just relaxing. Great for water sports! Long views of the lake with spectacular sunsets. Charcoal grill and fire pit for cooking dinner and roasting marshmallows. Enjoy the dock to try your hand at fishing or just for dangling your feet in the water.

Great location only 6 miles from the quaint town of Elk Rapids where you can find a drug store, hardware store, and well stocked grocery. You can also find many restaurants from pizza parlors to fine cuisine. Enjoy the fun shops on River Street or take in a movie at the outstanding Cinema Theater. Elk Rapids also has a marina with access to both Elk lake and Grand Traverse Bay where you can rent a ski or pontoon boat, pick up fishing excursions to Lake Michigan or just enjoy an incredible sunset over the bay.
Should you want to venture a little farther, Traverse City is only 18 miles away and Charlevoix is 30 miles.

Rental dates for the summer of 2016 are limited. We will update the calendar to show availability and start taking reservations in early April 2016.
