About Loralee Kring
We have been enjoying Northern Michigan for our entire lives and love being able to escape to Elk Rapids for time away. We have four grown children, two grandchildren, and pastor a church in the Lansing area where we reside when we're not enjoying the cottage.

Why Loralee Kring chose Elk Rapids
We love this cottage because it is set in historic Miller's Park where neighbors are friends and the views are breathtaking. The street is quiet and safe for families, neighbors keep an eye on each other and know all the local attractions if you need a recommendation.

Adorable house, in a perfect location. We will stay here again for sure.
Beautiful, clean, everything you need!
My family of 6 had a wonderful time in this very spacious and clean cottage home. Location was perfect--a quiet, private street, perfect for morning or evening walks, close to town and Lake MI beaches if you want to try something different than Elk Lake/River. We enjoyed using the 2 kayaks provided. It's just a short walk to the public access, a long grassy strip that led to Elk Lake/River. Cottage was close enough for a 15 minute walk to town, where there are lots of cute shops, just be sure to go during the day, as many close at night. Check out The Flour Pot (for donuts), Chef Charles Pizza. Plenty to do around Elk Rapids or into Traverse City. We especially enjoyed Dam Beach in Elk Rapids right on Lake MI and only 2 miles from the cottage. We usually go somewhere different every year, but could easily stay here again, it was that nice. Owners were easy to work with and helpful. Appreciated that there were starter paper goods (toilet paper, tinfoil, paper towel, plus dish and hand soap, etc.) We have stayed at places that didn't provide that. And having bedding there is always a plus. And a washer/dryer for sandy swimsuits!
Just a couple of notes: There is no A/C, but there are nice fans in the bedrooms. We could have used more seating and perhaps a DVD player in the living room, but we made it work. The weather was perfect, so we didn't need the tv a whole lot anyway.
Very nice cottage. Plenty of room for all of us. The neighbors were all very friendly.
Clean, quaint, and just the right size!
This place was perfect for our family! My wife and myself, plus our 2 year old and nana and papa, all very comfortably fit into this house. The bedrooms are big and accommodated everything we had to bring with us. Our son is still in a pack-and-play, and that fit very well into the room with the two twin beds, with lots of room. The house is spacious and open, and very easily catches a breeze on the warm summer days. Your just a 1 minute walk to the lake access, but it was chilly during our stay so we didn't even need it! 2 minutes from Elk Rapids, this place was perfect as a home base for our vacation! The owners are super nice, and were available if we needed anything (like when we accidentally tripped the breaker in the kitchen). Neighborhood is quiet and everyone is very friendly. Absolutely a great place to vacation to!
