Great vacation home in a fabulous town

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lovely two weeks in this great vacation rental during August 2013. The house was fabulous, providing comfortable accommodation for a family of five (children aged 3 to 8) plus two grandparents.

Perfect location, providing easy access to the town and beach. The neighbourhood is very friendly and the neighbours were welcoming. We would love to visit again.

On a final note, Val and Paul were very helpful, providing us with reassurance and references when we booked - very helpful especially as we were traveling from the UK and had not used VRBO before.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Our family has rented a cottage each summer in a different locations for many, many years. My husband and I, two teens, my sister and her spouse rented this house for a week last summer. The place is clean, spacious and decorated like a home in Crate and Barrel catalog. The location is within walking distance of main street and the beach. When we weren't out exploring the area, we mostly hung out on the really nice back deck. We all enjoyed the Tether Ball in the backyard, and bonfires most nights. Elk Rapids is such a wonderful town to vacation in, it was our second time. As mentioned in another review, both (really nice) bathrooms are on the first floor. Not easy to navigate in the middle of the night. My daughter LOVED the pink bedroom upstairs. My sister and her husband loved the Master Bedroom on the main floor. The bedroom upstairs that my husband and I picked only had a full size bed (bouncy if you have a spouse that turns a lot during the night) and one outlet in the opposite corner of the room. Also, no nightstands; so no place to plug in a cell phone or have a lamp. I ended up sleeping in the room with the two twin beds with my son. That was very comfortable. Minor inconvenience for such and beautiful, well-stocked home (except for having to bring our own toilet paper). I would highly recommend this home!

This was the perfect place for our family vacation!! We loved the proximity to downtown and the beach (we walked there every day), the fire pit outside and the number of rooms and beds were perfect for our group!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the absolutely great review of our Elk Rapids home! We have been renting for over 3 years and we really enjoy it. Elk Rapids really is a great getaway place which is so close to Elk Lake, Torch Lake, Traverse City and the Dunes!

Thanks again!

Bride's last night of being single

Bride's last night of being single
  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely, historical home prior to and after our daughter's wedding in Elk Rapids, which is a nice place for a "destination wedding". The landlord allowed us to stay for a shortened stay as the wedding was not during the peak season. She was married at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the reception was at the Elk Rapids township hall. The home and the hall were both historical landmarks, which was very interesting. The location of the house was perfectly accessible for both venues. We enjoyed the services of the Beehive salon, which provided many spa services and helped to make the bride feel like a princess.

The house was perfect with planning of room for our guests including my 91 year old mother, who had no trouble getting around the first floor. Everything that we needed was there. The decor was lovely... the colors and amenities made us feel very special. We have no complaints and would certainly use this home again... perhaps the next time for a vacation instead of to host and facilitate a wedding.

The landlord was available by phone to answer any questions that we had. The only thing that we had difficulty with was the Direct t.v. as we were not familiar with how to access it for our 91 year old guest.

Dear Val and Paul,

Your cottage reminded us of our stay in Maine. It is so beautifully decorated and so serene at your home.
We enjoyed the surroundings and downtown Elk Rapids. We loved walking along the beach viewing the crystal clear Lake Michigan. The shops are so quaint and the people in town are so down to earth and nice. The wine shop had some great wines I never heard of. You are so close to the lake and there is so much to do. We were centrally located, so we rented a boat and went pontoon boating, wine tasting, We took the kids to several places. We loved your place and hope to come back annually. I could live up here all summer long. Thank you so much for opening your beautiful second home to us.

Regards,
The Cuttles

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! We're glad that our home met your needs; the city of Elk Rapids is really a magical place with so many things to do or just going to beach for a peaceful read of a favorite book. Thanks again.
