About Cheryl Brattley

I grew up on this street. My parents still live in this quaint little town. Every chance I get, I pack the kids up and we make the 13 hour trek north. I love this little town; the beaches, the quiet, the friendly people. I love the library and the footbridge I ran across as a kid to get to the library. I just can't say enough about how wonderful it was to grow up here and I want to share it with you and your family!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was so easy to enjoy vacation when we got to come back to a beaitful home. It had everything we needed and more! The bikes were great for going to the beach that is only a couple blocks away! The deck was perfect for sitting out and soaking in sun but also watching the rain from under the covered part. We truly felt like we were at home here. Elk Rapids is an adorable, quiet town just the perfect distance away from Traverse. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely. The kitchen, bathroom and other area provided all the necessary amenities and more. Watching television with the antenna was not ideal, but the wifi was very good and provided access to streaming which we used each day. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great house located conveniently

close to downtown.

Great home in ER, we will be returning. The home was stocked and ready for vacation with any and all items you would need, even for the little ones. Great space with plenty of room for lounging and sleeping and so close to the beach and downtown ER.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We love how spacious the house is, how adorable it is decorated, the size of the kitchen (typically the family hang out spot) and how communicative and kind the owner is. Everything you could possibly want is available for your use. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
