  • Beautiful home

    "Of all the homes we have rented (probably 10 or so) this one had the most pictures and décor of any of them. It seemed very personal. The dining and living area are very full of furniture, really too much furniture for our family to get around. We enjoyed this property very much, staying a week with our four grown children, three spouses and two grandchildren. The pak 'n play was like a play pen, very roomy for our 5 1/2 month old grandson. The bedroom with the trundle bed downstairs could use a new bed but otherwise all the beds, even the sofa bed were comfortable. Plenty of sheets, pillows and blankets as well as towels. The kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, crock pot, coffee maker, mixer, food processor and more. The kitchen cabinets are very full, really too many glasses, so there is not much room for the items you bring. We loved the backyard seating, gas grill and fire pit. There are several TVs and movies, should you enjoy that, but bring your own games. If you bring bikes, be aware that you do not have a garage to store them in. We locked our seven bikes to the big tree in the front yard, not ideal. We enjoyed biking and our daughter enjoyed six and seven mile runs along N Bayshore Dr and E Harbor Dr - beautiful! We also enjoyed the track just a few blocks away at Elk Rapids Middle School. Don't miss Torch Lake, it's just a 20 minute drive to the public doc on Pub Dock Rd. At the dock, you'll find a grassy park with a playground for little ones and lots of shade to relax as well as pleasant bathrooms. We had great weather, so we visited twice during the week. We boated to Power Island one day and enjoyed some great hiking and swimming, well worth the trip. We walked down Dexter and Dam Rd to a little beach on the Bay to view a gorgeous sunset one evening. You'll also love Pearl's New Orleans Kitchen for dinner out, lots of variety and flavor! For an end of the week treat, we all walked to Cone Corral, great ice creams, shakes and flurries. Thank you, Kristi, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. It was a week we will remember for many years to come!"

  • Family Vacation

    "Just wanted to let you know that we absolutely loved the lake house and location. Morning coffee by the water was perfect and the beautiful sunsets were gorgeous. The weather was wonderful and the house was stocked with all of the things that a vacationer could possibly need. Again, thank you for allowing us to bring "Max" (he thoroughly enjoyed the ride to and from Michigan). We will definitely do this again."

  • Beautiful home!

    "We enjoyed our week at Lazy Bass Cottage! It is such a relaxing place! We loved fishing from the dock, kayaking, paddle boarding and just plain relaxing! It is conveniently located near Lake Michigan and Elk Lake if you want bigger lakes. We also LOVED going to Pearls twice! Love that Southern cooking! Thank you Candee & Dan for sharing your beautiful home with our family!"

  • Great lake home

    "Our family of 12 spent last week at this great lake home on Elk Lake. Overall the experience was good. The views of Elk Lake are spectacular. The kitchen layout was superb with lots of supplies including dishes, pots and pans, flatware, spices, etc . The two upstairs bedrooms were great with both having direct access to full bathrooms. The basement has two bedrooms with one full bath. Not sure if the air conditioning unit was working correctly because in order to cool the upstairs adequately, it left the basement freezing cold. We really couldn't hang out down there because of this. Also, the downstairs bathroom had a leak coming from somewhere upstairs. We contacted the manager and thought somebody was supposed to come out, but nobody came. The property could use more than one garbage container. Elk Lake is a large, beautiful, quiet lake. We brought our boat up and enjoyed boat rides on Elk and also made the trek to Torch Lake which was even more beautiful but very busy. Unfortunately a few of us contracted swimmers itch from Elk Lake, so be prepared for that if you are planning on swimming. We recommend going to the Lake Michigan beach in Elk Rapids which is only 10 minutes away. We ate at Pearls restaurant which is very good. Try to call ahead. The house is on a pretty busy road, so it made us nervous to let the kids ride their bikes. We had to escort them across the road and then they were able to bike in a neighborhood. Overall we enjoyed our stay. There are always slight negatives to every place; there's no place like home, right? The area of Elk Rapids is one of the best in Michigan."
