Elk Rapids House Rental Photos and Description

On the National Registry of Historic Places, Hughes House is just off the beach.

With a huge porch and only 90 steps to Veterans Memorial Park and beach (and a chip shot to town), this is where you want to be - in the middle of everything yet off the beaten path!

This old stage-coach boarding house sleeps up to 18 people in two separate rentals on a great double lot in town. A/C, lots of memory-foam mattresses, and close to everything, including Traverse City 18 miles away.

First floor sleeps 10 with one and a half baths and is $2,395 a week. The second floor sleeps 8 (with 3 bedrooms and two couches) and a full bath and is $1,895. When both floors are rented together the property will accommodate 18 guests.

Here's what the Elk Rapids Chamber of Commerce has to say; 'Beautiful sandy beaches naturally surround Elk Rapids. The area is centered between Traverse City and Charlevoix.....along some of the most magnificent shoreline in Michigan.

Elk Rapids Veterans Memorial Park – Located on River Street downtown, the park offers something for everyone. A fabulous sandy beach, basketball courts, tennis courts, a play area with swings and slides, restrooms, picnic tables, and barbeques. The swim area is also fantastic, shielded from the larger open waters of Grand Traverse Bay, making for a truly enjoyable experience for all ages.'

This home has 143 years of memories - come add yours!

Excellent house. Exactly what we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5
This house is exactly what we were hoping for and lives up to its description. We had 7 adults and 11 kids (ages 4-15) staying for a week at the house and did not feel crowded at all. Plenty of bedrooms and living space to spread out as needed. Kids often hung out together in the living room upstairs while adults enjoyed time together downstairs. The house has a huge yard and porch that were great for the kids also. Both kitchens were very well equipped with nice appliances, cookware, and dishes. We also grilled out on the gas grill several nights. Provided linens and towels were clean, comfortable, and plentiful.

Jim Eberle, the rental agent, was very easy to deal with. He returned all my emails and texts in a very timely manner and answered all our questions very quickly. The house was very clean when we checked in and everything worked fine throughout our stay.

The location was perfect for us also. You can see the beach and park from the front porch and it is literally a 45 second walk to get there. The kids enjoyed playing on the beach, at the park, and in the river. The downtown area in Elk Rapids is small but cute. We walked the 3 blocks into town several evenings to buy souvenirs and eat ice cream. Several restaurants are available and seemed popular, but we did not eat out while there. We rented a pontoon boat and spent a day tubing on Elk Lake, which everyone enjoyed.

Though it was a little bit of a drive, the location did allow for day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes (about an hour), Traverse City (15 minutes), and Mackinaw Island (about hour and 45 min.)

Overall, a great house in a nice quaint little town. Our experience with this house was great.
