Elk Rapids House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath On Wooded Lot With 100' Lakefront

Welcome to our family cottage on Elk Lake, part of the chain of lakes famous for their caribbean aqua blue-green hues. Our ranch style home is located on a 1+ acre lot with 100' of lakefront on a quiet deadend street. The entrance to our property is wooded with a winding drive, giving you that 'up north' feel. The back yard is large and grassy, perfect for lawn games and bonfires. The lawn gently slopes to the lake.

Walk right into the water or enter from the dock ladder. The water is crystal clear and the bottom is sandy (about 10 ft from shore - smooth rocks out to that point). Elk lake is an all sports lake and boat and jet ski rentals are available from local marinas. Bringing your boat? LAUNCH YOUR BOAT 4 DOORS DOWN, or at one of the local marinas, and store it in our boat lift (up to 3600lbs) for quick access during your stay.

Our home has a screened in porch with a lake view and a patio with a woods view. The large living room offers views of the lake and plenty of seating. The full kitchen is stocked with appliances, utensils and dishes. The master suite includes a bath, king size bed and private door to a small deck. The 2nd bedroom offers 2 twin beds and the 3rd has a queen with pocket door access to the main bath. Linens and washer/dryer are included.

There are tables and chairs on the master suite deck and front patio, as well as a picnic table and chairs for relaxing in the back yard. Roast marshmallows by the lake while taking in a beautiful sunset.

Head to downtown Elk Rapids by car or boat to explore and enjoy the local fare. There are many unique galleries, shops and restaurants. Play a game of golf on one of northern Michigan's finest courses or vist a local orchard or winery. And don't forget the fabulous fall color!

About Kelley Ryal

Our family lived in the area for a few years during the 1970's. In that short time this area of the state captured our hearts and imaginations and continues to draw us back.

Why Kelley Ryal chose Elk Rapids

From sugar sand beaches, beautiful fall foliage and famous festivals such as the National Cherry Festival, this area has something for everyone. The crystal clear aqua water in the chain of lakes, including Elk Lake, rivals the Caribbean - this area is a boater's paradise. Thanks to the glacier carved bluffs this is also a golfer's paradise. Some of the most challenging and breathtaking courses are minutes from our cottage.

What makes this house unique

Nestled in the woods, our property provides your family privacy. Our dock and boat lift (up to 3600lbs) are directly out your back door as are sunset views on the lake.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was VERY CLEAN. There were 8 of us celebrating my sister's 70th birthday. We could spread out in the living room, porch and outside areas and not be on top of each other. We slept well in the quiet with the delightful breezes off the lake. The quiet road was fun to walk and bike on. We loved playing with our kayaks, SUPs and Whalers. Even though the water was cold, it was too clear to not swim in. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen for making meals. We grilled twice and enjoyed s'mores with the fire pit. A great time was had by all.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5
The views of the lake were beautiful. We stayed with another family in this 3 bedroom house. The screened in porch and outdoor fire pit were great. In the master bedroom, there was an enormous closet that the twin-size air mattress for our 5 year old easily fit into, so it was almost like having an extra room! The water was crystal clear and cool, but still nice for swimming. The kayaks were fun. We enjoyed everything about this place!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (children ages 16, 15, and 12) loved staying here. The cottage was cozy and had everything we needed, including comfortable family room furniture for lounging after our days of outdoor adventure and a kitchen fully stocked with dishes, utensils, cookware... We rented a speedboat from Elk River Marina--great experience with them as well. The lake itself is stunning aquamarine with very little boat traffic, which made boating and tubing so enjoyable! The property itself is very peaceful and quiet. Sunsets were stunning every night. The owners were helpful in answering our questions beforehand and provided a wonderful list of area activities as well. We enjoyed dinner at Pearl's New Orleans Kitchen in Elk Rapids, burgers at The Dockside on Torch Lake, and walking around the towns of Elk Rapids and Traverse City. There is much to do in the area, so this place would be great no matter the weather. We didn't want to leave!

Great getaway on the lake

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 8 and stayed in thIs house for 3 nights. The house had plenty of room for everyone. The house was very clean and was well stocked with towels. It had a washer and dryer which came in handy for beach towels. The setting was very private and the yard was large (which the kids enjoyed for frosted and campfires). The view was beautiful and the convenience of the dock and lift on-site was nice. We had a great stay and would definitely rent this house again.

Incredible Views and Access at Elk Lake!

  • 5 of 5
My family greatly enjoyed our stay at Elk Lake! The cottage was very clean and well maintained. the owners were wonderful to work with, very responsive and obviously in love with their property. The kitchen was stocked with everything and anything you could wish for! There were plenty of towels, linens, and blankets provided. The kitchen and bathrooms have older appliances but were impeccably clean and in working order. The view at the Elk Lake Cottage was like a postcard! The weather was incredible the week that we stayed so we spent very little time inside. However, if it had rained, the screened porch would have provided a great place to hang out and play games (which were well stocked at the cottage). We intended to make several day trips but the lake was so wonderful, we didn't want to leave and only ventured out one day - sightseeing in Traverse City, Glen Arbor, and Sleeping Bear Dunes, which we highly recommend!
