LOG HOME/ACCESS TO ELK LAKE. BOAT AVAILABLE.

Traverse City House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2baths, sleeps 8

Handcrafted log home within walking distance (.5 mile) to one of the nicest lakes in Michigan. Elk Lake is a crystal clear lake that extends into the town of Elk Rapids and is connected by a canal to Torch Lake. Elk lake and Torch lake are great for swimming and boating.

My home backs up to Whitewater twp park, a 200 acre nature preserve, with about 1500 ft frontage on Elk Lake. The park has a nice beach, boat launch, pavillion, barbecue grills, picnic tables and some playground equipment for kids. The park also has a few miles of moutain biking trails. If your looking for peace and quiet, but still close to everything than you found the place.

Other things close to my house, Turtle Creek Casino, Elk Rapids(great fireworks on the 4th), Horse Show By The Bay, Grand Traverse Resort /Golf course, wine tasting.

If your into casino's. Turtle Creek Casino is a brand new 88 million dollar facility that has three restuants and one night club.

What a gorgeous place!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is absolutely beautiful! I stayed here with several girlfriends for my bachelorette "girls' weekend" in Traverse City. It was very clean, spacious, and the beds were very comfortable! Aaron was very accommodating for us, easy to get in touch with, and willing to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend Aaron and this cabin. We had a blast, and I hope to come back again sometime!

nice place

  • 3 of 5
need to ck burnt out light bulbs outside. need more dish towels, dish cloths,hand towels and wash cloths. there were plenty of bath towels. somehow seemed to be alot of small bugs inside but there were 3 little ones with us. The owner was very responsive to our needs. weren't sure where we were to put our trash,no containers on site. despite all of the above this was a nice place and we had a good time.

A Neat Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5
The place was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this property to other. We were three siblings and a spouse. It was very quiet at night as you are surrounded by woodlands. The interior is really unique with all the wood. If you come in the summer, the rainy season has brought many mosquitoes so bring bug spray for hiking. The place has plenty of dishes, utensils but a few things to bring would be your favorite skillet, coffee pot and a hair dryer.

Exceed my Expectation

  • 5 of 5
What a cabin! The smell of the natural Pine wood soon as you enter the cabin through the 2-car garage gets you right in the mood of upscale cabin living. Beautiful updated bathrooms,full size black on black appliances and 3 large bedroom was definitely plus! Great views of nature.
Aaron thank you for making my birthday vacation memorable! See you soon

A great experience

  • 5 of 5
All four rooms are clean and big. The house is much more beautiful than the pics. It's a great choice for a group of friends to relax! Aaron even offered us drinks for free! The only thing we were a little disappointed about was the coffee maker, there were impurities on the surface of water. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

Great log home just outside of Traverse City!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay! Great location as it's just 10-15 minutes outside of Traverse City. Turtle Creek casino is even closer. What a beautiful home to stay in. Extremely clean and seemed brand new. Even in the middle of February it was amazing! Makes me want to visit in the summer and utilize the lakes. Description was spot on. I'd recommend this rental to a friend in a heart beat!

If you look on the map provided you will see a green square on the southwest part of Elk Lake. It says Whitewater Twp park and my house backs up to that green square.
