EXECUTIVE HOME IN ELK RAPIDS ON LAKE MICHIGAN

Elk Rapids House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This is the perfect spot to have a Grand Traverse Bay vacation, directly across from Old Mission Peninsula. The Elk Rapids area is an upscale resort offering many wonderful amenities. This is why this location is called 'Bayside Sunsets Residential Rental.'

This home is truly one of a kind with a definite five star rating. The home was built in 2000 with the vision of building a lakefront cottage emphazing the charm of a 1900's gathering place for the owner's family. Her home emphasis is a cozy, intimate, peaceful setting with a classic touch of beauty displayed in each room.

The house is GORGEOUS! It has 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. The house welcomes you the minute you pull into the driveway, past its beautiful flower gardens, trimmed lawn and majestic trees. Then, when you walk in the front door, you know you selected the perfect vacation home.

It has expansive views of the bay. You will enjoy the incredible sunsets! Looking towards Old Mission Peninsula the sunset dramatically displays blazing colors of orange, red and pink over the lake's horizon. In all of this glory the sunset disappears leaving a sky full of stars to be enjoyed.

Enjoy the brick patio surrounded by gardens while barbecuing your favorite meal on the grill, as the children play in the sand and water. The sandy beach is magnificient. There are no nasty weeds, only the rich sugar sand to enjoy at this great beach. The water level extends a great distance before depth increases, very safe for children. If you are lucky a sandbar may expose itself for another place to spread out your beach towels.

It is perfect for fishing, boating, tubing, skiing, or just sitting in that comfortable beach chair with your feet at the waters edge, reading your favorite book that you never have time for. Enjoy a beach fire, roasting marshmallows to a perfect golden brown.

Tranquility is everywhere--NO CITY SOUNDS

Perfect Family Reunion House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 28, 2013

We have rented this house for three summers in a row - it's perfect for a large family, great shared space but also large enough that you can get away from the crowd if you need to.

It is clean, has everything you need (sheets, towels, salt and pepper, sand toys, etc.). The house is absolutely gorgeous, but still okay for kids - with great views and lovely beach - fire pit, too!

The town of Elk Rapids is quaint and close.

I cannot say enough about this house - LOVE it!

"Our Best Family Vacation"

"Our Best Family Vacation"
  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013

Our family rented Judy's home this past September and the accommodations were top notch. It is a truly beautiful home right on Lake Michigan with a wonderful stone stairway leading down to the beach. The home is very clean and spacious with amazing views of the lake. It was every bit as lovely as represented on the VRBO website, if not more so!

In e-mails, phone conversations and in person, I have found Judy to be personable and professional, and a woman of integrity. We live about two hours from Elk Rapids and I would not hesitate to rent from Judy again, or to recommend her home to our friends.

Wonderful Stay

It was not an easy feat to find the perfect house for our trip to Michigan. It took us weeks to find a house that was clean, spacious, upscale and affordable with a perfect location: on the water, with a beach and not too far from a good sized down. This house was the perfect find! The description of the house is accurate and the pictures really don't even do the beautiful house justice....the house is even better in "person". The owner, Judy, is very professional. She patiently and quickly answered all our questions before we rented the house. She met us at the house on the first day of our stay to show us the house and the grounds.

What is particularly great about this home is that the owner lives here when she's not renting the house. So, it's fully equipped with plates, silverware, pots, pans, towels, etc. I've rented vacation homes in the past that were very skimpy on furnishings and utensils etc. Judy even provides laundry detergent, paper towels, beach towels, soap, toilet paper. This is such a nice touch.

We loved making s'mores on the beach using the fire pit. Once again, Judy had plenty of chairs and tables down on the beach for our whole family. We enjoyed the beaches in Elk Rapid; our kids loved the beach by the playground and another day we moved to the beach north of the river to search for Petoskey stones. We enjoyed the proximity to Traverse City....get burgers at Bubba's! No trip to Northern Michigan is complete without a trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes and Moomers Ice Cream was a hit with the kids.

Truly a memorable vacation in a beautiful house. We'll be back.
