Enjoy our newly remodeled home - a clean, modern aesthetic with finished basement and bright, sunny rooms. The large dinning area downstairs is perfect for family gatherings and games. And when you're ready to settle in, enjoy a movie on the flat-screen TV. Well kept, newly landscaped yard makes you feel at home in the friendly downtown neighborhood.
Bikes, beach gear, and some tennis and golf gear are available at the house for renters to use. Look for the info binder for brochures on local art galleries, restaurants and activities. There's enough in walking/biking distance to keep you happy throughout your stay, but if you're looking for daytrips, consider the local wineries, state parks, Mackinac Island, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and much more.
Wi-Fi is available for a fee through Cherry Capitol Connection, or the local coffee house and library offer internet access.
I was very lucky to grow up in Elk Rapids, one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I know. The spirit of my upbringing stayed with me through college in Arizona, a short professional career and finally as wife and mom in California. I look forward to my bi-annual trips 'home' to visit family and friends, and to let my kids run free on the beach or tumble in the snow. I like to say, 'You can take the girl out of Elk Rapids, but you can't take Elk Rapids out of the girl.' My husband and I own 'The Town House' with my brother and his wife. I keep track of the renters, and my sister-in-law takes care of the money. Our late father was the previous owner of the house and was well known in the community. We've had a great time collaborating on the renovation and transformation of his very 'utilitarian' style house to a home with beautiful form and perfect functionality.
