Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy our newly remodeled home - a clean, modern aesthetic with finished basement and bright, sunny rooms. The large dinning area downstairs is perfect for family gatherings and games. And when you're ready to settle in, enjoy a movie on the flat-screen TV. Well kept, newly landscaped yard makes you feel at home in the friendly downtown neighborhood.

Bikes, beach gear, and some tennis and golf gear are available at the house for renters to use. Look for the info binder for brochures on local art galleries, restaurants and activities. There's enough in walking/biking distance to keep you happy throughout your stay, but if you're looking for daytrips, consider the local wineries, state parks, Mackinac Island, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and much more.

Wi-Fi is available in the house.

Cheers!

About The Owner

I was very lucky to grow up in Elk Rapids, one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I know. The spirit of my upbringing stayed with me through college in Arizona, a short professional career and finally as wife and mom in California. I look forward to my bi-annual trips 'home' to visit family and friends, and to let my kids run free on the beach or tumble in the snow. I like to say, 'You can take the girl out of Elk Rapids, but you can't take Elk Rapids out of the girl.' My husband and I own 'The Town House' with my brother and his wife. I keep track of the renters, and my sister-in-law takes care of the money. Our late father was the previous owner of the house and was well known in the community. We've had a great time collaborating on the renovation and transformation of his very 'utilitarian' style house to a home with beautiful form and perfect functionality.

Great place for family.

  • 5 of 5

Great place one block from quaint town of Elk Rapids and local park/beach. Plenty space for six with 2 full baths. Fully equipped and ready for us. Updated with comfortable beds, large table for family games and meals in lower level. Enjoyed walks to town and bike ride. 20 minutes to Traverse city and close to many other lakes and sites. Owner very responsive and helpful.

Great weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The house was spotless , warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was our second weekend here. We were here in the fall of 2016 and now the winter of 2017. Our fingers are crossed we can stay for a week this July. Location is perfect, everything you need is here, furniture and most importantly the beds are very comfortable. You'll feel at home as soon as you open the door.

Short drives to TC - Charlevoix and Eastport at the north end of Torch Lake. Great new place there with great music for everybody. Check out the Torch Lake Cafe.

Thanks again to the proprietor for the accommodations, we had a really great weekend.

We will be back!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed New year's Eve weekend there. It was cozy and well stocked (just couldn't find paper towels)! It snowed while we were there and the plow people were prompt so no issues! We hope to return, we love the place and Elk Rapids!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! You were great guests! So sorry about the paper towels. The supply closet down stairs is now and forever fully stocked. Come back soon!

Fall getaway on the Michigan peninsula

  • 5 of 5

Great area for fall. Quiet, very well kept neighborhood. Looks like great place to stay in summertime. One block from great beach, playground, and picnic area. Quaint downtown area walkable from house. Within a 20 Minute drive to wine country peninsula. Great time, beautiful fall leaves, great wine and restuarants within short drive. Not very busy during mid Oct. which we liked.
