About Amy Schindler

We moved up to Elk Rapids from the Ann Arbor area. We have three sons and love living in our home. This year we are spending some time in Frankfort and are renting our Elk Rapids' home.

Amy Schindler purchased this house in 2006

Why Amy Schindler chose Elk Rapids

This property is the best of both worlds. It is located within easy walking distance of downtown Elk Rapids and beaches but also has a small subdivision-feel and wooded area for privacy.

What makes this house unique

Perfect home for showing at the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival

I rented this home for me and my staff to stay at during our stay in Traverse City for the Horse Show. We love the location in quiet Elk Rapids. It has great restaurants and grocery shopping near by. Being only 10 minutes to the Horse Show with no traffic was a huge highlight. The kitchen was a good surprise!! We wished we had more time to spend there. But since we were working not vacationing we only were able to enjoy the patio and grilling/cooking a few times. The space was a bonus for my staff. With so many bed rooms and sleeping spaces it allowed staff expansion that I was expecting. My husband and I enjoyed the privacy of the master bed room and master bathroom. Fantastic shower!!! I have already rebooked for a month next year!! Amy was so accommodating I hope to become a regular renter!!

I rented this house for my 93 year old aunt, my sister, and myself and couldn't have been happier. The house was PERFECT for our needs - close to town, restaurants, grocery store and close to relatives we were visiting. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a rental in the Traverse City area. I'm hoping our plans will work out to rent it next year also.

Beautiful Elk Rapids vacation home!

My family of 7 could not have enjoyed our visit more! Amy and family went the extra mile to ensure the experience was top-notch. Beautiful chef's kitchen with granite-topped island, adjacent dining room and large family room with large flat screen TV for family time & entertainment. The convenient location to downtown Elk Rapids was also perfect for walking to dinners, grocery shopping and harbor activities. Can't wait to come back soon -- thanks again for making our visit to northern Michigan so perfect!
