vacation rental description

Park the car, drop your bags, and head to the nearby beach. That's how we start vacations 'Up North'!

Newlyweds to 'empty nesters' can relax with an affordable vacation in the quaint Village of Elk Rapids. Just 15 minutes north of Traverse City, the Village of Elk Rapids is nestled between the eastern arm of Grand Traverse Bay, the cool blue waters of Elk Lake, and the other 'finger lakes' of Antrim County. We are dead center in a Lake Michigan “arc of hospitality” that stretches from the artist community of Northport to the historic sites of Mackinac Island.

Our 1400 sq. ft. two bedroom home is fully furnished with a dining room, spacious and comfortable family room (with fold out sofa), enclosed back yard, and bonus game room. A sliding door leads onto the enclosed slate patio to sip your morning coffee.

The 20x16 master bedroom has the feel of a sumptuous suite with walk-in closet, on- suite master bath and seating area. The second bedroom has two twin beds. The kitchen leads into the dining room and also opens onto the patio. Back yard and patio are enclosed by a tall privacy fence while the front yard is open and spacious.

Just off the back yard is the newly added 'Cedar Street Lounge'; a play room with large screen TV, iPod player, Nintendo Wii, and gaming table. It is the perfect spot for rainy days, after a long day at the beach, or for evening relaxation in front of the fire pit.

A short walk or bike ride takes you to Elk Rapids' Main Street and easy access to the beach, tennis or basketball at the local park, shopping, dining, boating, movies, or enjoy an ice cream on the river bank in one of northern Michigan's best kept secret vacation getaways.

Enjoy four seasons living in our quaint Village. Whether you visit local attractions like Elk Lake, Bass Lake or Torch Lake or drive 15 minutes to Traverse Bay, everything is close. Or you can visit the attractions that make Traverse City one of the 'Ten Best Small Towns in America' (Fodor) and got it on National Geographic's 'Top 10 Summer Trips' then leave the crowds behind for your “sanctuary” in Elk Rapids.

Elk Rapids gives you access to the best of Grand Traverse area attractions with the peace and quiet of real small town life a. You'll like Traverse City but you'll love Elk Rapids!

Enjoyed Stay

Review submitted: August 18, 2013   Date of arrival: June 9, 2013

Hi Christopher we enjoyed your house fine but if you put a small AC in the front bedroom it would make it much more enjoyable during hot days. It was a really nice home and it was close to everything and we would like to come back sometime soon thanks again and God Bless you and yours

This was a great experience

Review submitted: September 17, 2010   Date of arrival: September 1, 2010

We had a great time in Elk Rapids and at this house. It was a perfect size for two people. We used the spare bedroom for storage of luggage etc. Master bedroom was huge w/living area and big TV. Window A.C. in master only, but that was plenty. Our dogs loved fenced backyard and patio w/trees and deck was so nice that we had breakfast out there everyday. The two bicycles enabled us to bike to downtown whenever we wanted. Elk Rapids is a lovely little town. The landlord was super nice. The only down side is Traverse City is a 20 minute drive and if you need anything beyond the basics you have to go there. Otherwise great.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Great getaway spot. If you like quiet small towns where you can walk anywhere you wish and where the kids are always safe then Elk Rapids is a must see for you. Great house . . . very comfortable.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
