We wanted to get away for a long weekend wanted to try Elk Rapids since we already spend so much time in TC. The location was great. We walked to town. We walked to the Art Sculpture trail. We had our dog with us, so having the yard was wonderful. It was very private. The place would be great for a family since it's spread out out and very roomy. Since it was just me and my husband, we had plenty of room. The master suite was very nice - the bathroom and shower were updated and great. I'd love to come back in the warmer weather when the garage/playroom is available and the yard is in bloom.
Thank you for your kind words. We are so happy that you enjoyed our home. The "cave" is really great in the summer, a wonderful space to spend summer nights away from the bugs.
Very cozy and friendly little town.
Nice little getaway
How did i miss your kind words? I am so very sorry but happy that you liked the place and the town. "Mayberry" is a real place.
Perfect place to relax
We had a great time and it was exactly what our family needed! We were able to kick back and relax. We loved that it was just a very short walk to town and the changing of the trees was beautiful to enjoy...even if it rained a bit. Love the location because you are close to Traverse City and torch lake but away from the daily hustle and bustle! We will be back for sure!
Meagan, we are so happy that your stay was just what you hoped it would be. We agree on the location, nice to be close to TC but away from the crowds. Look forward to having you back with us.

We enjoyed our stay. Great location close to downtown and beaches. Nice backyard and master suite.
Thank you so much! This is one of the reasons we bought the home many years ago. We hope to welcome you back next year.
House was bigger than expected; walkable to everything. Overall, wonderful stay!
Thank you so much! So glad you had a good time. Will we see you next year?
Easy stroll to downtown for shopping, dining, taking in a movie, or just hitting the ice cream store.
The Village of Elk Rapids is an easy place to relax and unwind with an unhurried lifestyle.
About Ben Rubert
I live in Atlanta, GA but this is HOME. Northern Michigan has so much to offer everyone and yet it remains a reasonably well kept secret. Grew up in Traverse City, went to high school and college there. Have lived in Texas and Georgia but this is were we are most 'at home.'
Why Ben Rubert chose Elk Rapids
After 30 yrs of coming back home (see i grew up in Traverse City) we finally found the perfect place to purchase. Cozy and comfortable, this home and this town was what TC was when I moved there in 1972.
