TRAVERSE CITY/ACME AREA ELK LAKE HOME. ENJOY THE CHAIN OF LAKES!

Williamsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sunday to Sunday Rental!! 4 Bedroom, Bunk Room, 2-1/2 Bath Sleeps 12.

Take a well deserved break and enjoy beautiful northern Michigan on the crystal clear waters of Elk Lake. Our cottage is located on Miami Beach Road, a private drive just 1.8 miles from M72 in Williamsburg. Known for it's sandy bottom (thus the name), it is just 20 minutes to the heart of Traverse City and 15 minutes to the quaint village of Elk Rapids. Turtle Creek Casino is less than 10 minutes away for spectacular night time entertainment, and don't forget the wineries, breweries, golf courses, ski resorts, art galleries, exclusive shopping locations, snowmobile trails, equestrian events and the five star dining, that are all part of one of the finest resort areas of Michigan.

This gorgeous 4 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath, Nantucket styled home is appointed with cherry and slate flooring throughout, while granite counter tops add a touch of elegance to the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms.

The kitchen comes equipped with stainless appliances including two ovens, refrigerator, dishwasher, range, filtered water and garbage disposal. Everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal is available from blenders to griddles and spatulas to wine openers. You'll be hard pressed to find a better equipped kitchen. The dining room seats 6 and the adjoining bar area seats 4 more.

Just outside of the dining area is a lakeside 12 x 30 ft. covered porch that is graced with rocking chairs and wicker furniture for a perfect lazy afternoon of books and/or cocktails. A separate three season room with 32' television and view onto the the lake is a perfect spot for coffee in the morning. The fieldstone fireplace is the focal point of the main living area. Books, board games, and jigsaw puzzles are available for the whole family to enjoy while spending a night nestled in this inviting room. The master suite (lakeside) is on the main level and has a king sized bed with matching dresser and night stands. The view is spectacular! The master bath is entered through an attached hallway with two master closets and has double sinks and a huge walk in shower.

The open staircase leads to the upper level where you will find two large lakeside bedrooms (queens) and a front bedroom (queen). The upper level also houses a bunk room (lakeside) with four single beds and a full bath with tub/shower combination. Just down the hall and over the garage is another living area dedicated to the kids, with a large screen TV, comfy couch, two recliners and a desk.

Waterside you will find a beautiful lawn that leads to the dock with sun deck. A ladder off the dock allows you access to the shallow and sandy lake floor. A perfect playground for both kids and adults. The rental comes with two paddle boards, tubes, noodles, life jackets and all the water accessories you will need for a perfect time on the lake. There is also a mooring ball and boat hoist if you choose to bring or rent a boat. A boat is not necessary, but if you do decide to bring your own or rent one locally, you will experience lakeside living at a whole new level. Elk Lake is part of the LOWER Chain O' Lakes and just a five minute jaunt northeast puts you in Lake Skegemog (famous for its' muskie) and then onto the Torch River. A 30 minute ride through the no wake zone will deposit you directly on the threshold of the famous Torch Lake Sand Bar, and from there onto Clam Lake (Dockside Restaurant), Lake Bellaire and Intermediate Lake. It doesn't get better than this!

Other amenities included are: beach towels, bedding, bath and kitchen towels, large capacity washer and dryer, gas grill, second refrigerator in garage and coolers. The home has air conditioning, wifi, cable tv, stereo with built in sound system, 32' flat screen television and a 47' flat screen television. Every attention to detail has been checked and double checked. All you have to do is pack your clothes and your sundries and Enjoy Your Time On The Lake! This is a Sunday to Sunday Rental. Reservations for summer 2015, not taken until January 2015.

What a beautiful place! So much provided by owner, bedding was great, request for clean up at the end was very reasonable. We have come to this area every year for twenty years to fish, but never stayed at such an amazing cottage. Our whole family was there with plenty of room to enjoy the first class beach and wonderful views.

OUR WEEK AT THE "COTTAGE ON ELK LAKE"

Our Week at the "Cottage on Elk Lake"
  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the "Cottage on Elk Lake" was truly a fantastic experience. We rented this lake home as an extended family vacation destination. We had family members ranging in age from 7 to 68 and a good time was had by all. The waters of Elk Lake are absolutely beautiful and clear with a hard packed sandy bottom - great for everything from swimming to paddleboarding to kayaking to cruising in our boat to wakeboarding to skiing to tubing. We did it all! We also enjoyed playing games (wiffleball, baggo, etc) in the spacious back yard. The home provides all of the amenities as described. The home is in close proximity to Elk Rapids (small, quaint town) and Traverse City. We enjoyed visiting both locations. We also tried ziplining at Boyne Mountain - a definite must for the more adventurous type - which is just under an hour away. We would highly recommend this property (but only after we have our week next year reserved!).

INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house! We came for the horse show, but the Elk Lake cottage made our stay feel like a resort vacation! The house is beautifully designed and decorated with lovely woodwork and materials, and the lake view reminded us of past vacations on Lake Tahoe. The quiet location is close to town, but also convenient to fruit stands, golf and cherry-picking. Our kids loved playing in the crystal-clear lake while we relaxed on the porch listening to music... what a wonderful and relaxing haven! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!
