Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The 2300 square feet Lake house in Ellsworth is a beautiful executive home on almost three acres, that boasts 100 feet of private waterfront on all sports 6 Mile Lake.

The wooded setting and beautiful lake will make your vacation wonderfully relaxing and when you are ready for action the lake invites you to boat/water ski, Boyne Mountain invites you to ski, and the nearby snowmobile trails will quench your need for speed.

The home has room for the whole family (2300 square feet) and the log interior, luxurious appointments, and gourmet kitchen will welcome you. It is a great place for a family reunion.

About The Owner

My wife and I are both Midwesterners but the Army has taken us away for 25+ years. The Lake house in Ellsworth is that place that brings our family back together. We love the privacy of the wooded location and the great beach. The gentle slope into the water is great for the kids and the boating is great. We hope you'll love the house as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

Northern Michigan is a beautiful area that evokes images of the wonderful times we shared with our friends and family in our youth. The lake is beautiful, uncrowded and still offers all the opportunities for fun expected on an all sports lake.

What makes this house unique

This is a fantastic lake house that offered us amenities that were uncommon in other cottages. We are able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and wide open property without giving up any of the luxury you expect from a fine home.

Home away from home...only better!

  • 4 of 5

First time taking a family a vacation and it was a big hit! The house is large and comfortable, the grandchildren loved the sandy beach area and of course enjoyed boating on the lake. Plenty of room for everyone, kitchen well stocked and the views from the deck were beautiful. Sure we will do it again!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Awesome stay at the lake house. A tranquil and relaxing setting with the lake and small stream just outside your door...we couldn't of asked for a better place to stay to have our family gathering. There are a pair of loons on the lake with 3 babies...what a site to see and hear. The fishing was great! The paddle boat and canoe were an added plus to an already fantastic vacation. The house is huge but welcoming! We will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Lake/Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time with kids and grandparents. Week of relaxation and fun on the water including swimming, canoeing, paddlboating, and fishing. The house itself is amazing and all the comforts of home. Plenty of room between bedrooms and additional loft area and lots of lounging areas so everyone had their own space. Location of home gave it a woodlike feel with a beach and lake 150' away. The golf cart was a big hit to get to/from the beach and to "drive."

Made a day trip to Mackinac Island and visited Charlevoix a few evenings (easy drive). Good location to see a couple of Northern Michigan points of interest.

Only potential improvement (and I hesitate to even add) is that cell service is spotty and there is no wi-fi available. It is vacation and was good to unplug...but made it challenging to do some important vacation related things (check the weather forecast, run directions, etc.). Not critical at all but just helpful to manage expectations...especially of teenagers :)

Terrific Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Arrived a day late due to some vehicular troubles, but loved every day thereafter at the house. The lake is just right for skiing and tubing, and the dock and beach area offer numerous opportunities to enjoy the water. The house is generously equipped, and there was plenty of room for the six of us. On one rainy day, we visited Boyne City, Petoskey and Charlevoix, all of which are within 30-40 minutes from Ellsworth. Fun fact: there was no cell phone service at the house (okay by me!), but phone and data were available at the dock on the lake. We would definitely visit again!

Amazing Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family vacation at your home away from home. The home is so comfortable and welcoming...we loved the log cabin feel! The kids loved having the golf cart for the short trek to the beach. We called it our taxi! We had a couple of cloudy days so we visited the nearby beautiful Charlevoix and also Alden, Bellaire and Elk Rapids. We had a lunch at the Dockside in Alden on lovely Torch Lake. Lots to see and do within 30 minutes! Thanks for sharing your home with us....we loved it so and we can't wait to come back!

Secluded, with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house! Nicely decorated in a "cabin in the woods" decor. Well equipped kitchen. First class all the way. The house does not overlook the lake, it is seated in the woods, but it is just a golf cart ride down a path. The lake front is private with a fire pit, chairs and a picnic table. It is a drivable distance from all the great western Michigan attractions.
