Only a few summer 2015 weeks are left! Think about early summer weekends in June. We are only 25 minutes from Schuss Mtn, and 20 minutes away from Mt. Holiday - time to plan a ski/snowboard/tubing weekend. The lake does freeze, for skating and ice-fishing. ***More info and photos at www.elklakeestate.com ***

Two kitchens, dining area seats 22, and multiple living areas. Large lake front deck and ample outdoor furniture. Plenty of room outside for playing, there is a sand volleyball court and children's play structure.
We have a fire-pit and fire wood is provided. A large dock with boat, pontoon and wave runner lifts will meet all your water sport needs. There is a large swim raft about 100 feet off shore. Our lake has a sandy bottom, no muck here!
Six Bedrooms!: Each bedroom has a theme!
They are arranged as follows: The master is called the Captains Quarters, it has a king bed, sitting area, walk in closet and large custom bath with waterfall shower and jacuzzi tub.
The Elk room has a king bed and private bath.
The Fish room and The Boat room each have a Queen size bed, they share a bath.
The Bear Cave has a Queen size bed, bunk beds and a private bath.

Nice shallow swimming area! We have a stone break wall, but there is a hard sandy lake bottom from the dock steps. Great for kids and adults.
Off street parking for all!: We have a large driveway with parking for up to eight cars and room for trailers.
After visiting many lakes in Michigan, we found the best one for our family. Elk Lake is a perfect combination of clear Caribbean water, low boating traffic, and it's close to a charming town with great restaurants.
Well stocked for a large group's needs.
Outside: Crystal clear water, clean sand, more than enough high quality outdoor seating(Pictures don't show!), fire pit, free wood for the fire pit(Pictures don't show!), boat dock (rented a fast boat for 5 hours for $160) , SAND VOLLEYBALL COURT (with rakes!), Grill WITH propane in it (HIGH QUALITY), and prob 50 other things that I have forgotten about.
Inside: Each room has a "theme", making the entire place very cozy and comfortable. There was more than enough sleeping space for everyone (~ 20 people), beds were comfortable. The kitchens (2) were SUPER STOCKED with everything you could possible need (sans a can opener? hahaha), with really high quality appliances that I've never seen at a rental property before! On top of that, they had nice big LCD TV's, multiple "living rooms" (We only used the top floor), and an amazing outdoor patio connected to it all.
Complaints: Your pictures DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE! You have all this amazing outdoor furniture that I'm sure you spent a few grand on and you don't even show it! Even inside is more "updated" and nice than what you see in some of the pictures! The pictures on here and on the website really don't show 50% of what you are getting with the house, so at least it was a great surprise!
The only real thing I would change is the outdoor steps that go from the patio to the ground floor are a rather dark area at night. Some sort of lighting on the stairs would be a good safety call in my eyes.
While we have been doing a winter guy's trip for years, I think we have found the place where we will be starting our annual Summer Guy's trip!
Thank you again Jennifer for letting us stay here. You were a great host (She kept in contact with me over the stay period multiple times to make sure we had everything we needed, and never bugged us while we were there.
A+ , will be coming back!
