Overview

Elk Rapids Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A spectacular 5 bedroom retreat for those not interested in 'roughing' it

Nestled among towering pines and hardwoods, this recently built craftsman style cottage home is ideally located on quiet Lake Skegemog and provides boat access to Torch, Elk, and Clam Lakes and Lake Bellaire. The well designed home features plenty of room for family and friends to enjoy time together or find a quiet space to relax and enjoy the solitude. There is no need to sacrifice the comforts of home with this well appointed property.

Lake Skegemog is not quite as well known as her sister lakes, Torch and Elk, but there are many advantages. The water warms much earlier in the season making early season swims or ski sessions much more enjoyable. Relative to Torch and Elk, there is much less boat traffic on Skegemog so quiet moments are much easier to come by. The fishing on Skegemog is also much more accessible with shallower water and tremendous populations of bass, perch, pike and world class musky.

Skegemog Point road is a breathtaking tree lined lane extending north directly from M-72 providing very quick access to Traverse City and downstate. Because the road terminates at the water, there is no through traffic providing a great atmosphere for morning walks.

Perfect spot for a wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our three daughters and their families, including 5 grandsons from 3 to 14, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. What a treat! All of us girls loved the way it was decorated, with a great combination of old and new. There was a comfortable spot for everyone, whether we were looking for some quiet reading or a good night’s sleep. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. We even tried using the homemade ice cream maker. Being right on the water was perfect. The boys could jump right off the pier onto the sandy bottom. Our son in law docked his boat there and was off fishing early every morning. We brought our kayaks and paddle boards and even had paddle board races. What fun. The turquoise waters of the connecting larger lakes made us feel like we were in the Caribbean. We found lots of great hiking and biking trails and the trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes was a real treat. It was all over way too soon.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5
The home was comfortable and tastefully decorated with all the amenities and comforts that one could want. The owners & property manager clearly have pride in this property. The property is fairly private; tucked into the woods at the water's edge. The section of Skegemog is sandy, not weedy, and peaceful. The dock was great for laying out on, swimming from, and tying our ski boat up to. Easily accessible to beautiful Torch and Elk Lakes by boat, but Skegemog is quieter & great for kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, and loon & bald eagle watching! ~25 minute drive to Traverse City & within easy driving distance to Sleeping Bear & Lake Michigan. We can't wait to return !

First time to Michigan

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time! This home is gorgeous. Home was perfect for our families. Nice sized bedrooms. Large bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen. We had everything we needed. The dock and swimming area was shallow with a sandy bottom which was perfect for my children. We highly recommend this home and area. The lake was nice and quiet for skiing and tubing. Not a lot of boat traffic. We were able to go over to Torch Lake which was beautiful but cold. We were happy we chose Lake Skegemog over a home on Torch Lake. We went in to Traverse City several times as well as the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. Great home and wonderful area. We highly recommend.
