Comfortable home in lovely northern Michigan town

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Victoria Place this summer after a one week stay in June of 2015. We loved the town of Elk Rapids, MI: the beautiful harbor, the small commercial area with just the right mix of shops and eating places, the walking-friendly streets lined with charming cottages and Victorian houses. We had a fishing boat with us both visits; we loved the accessibility of Traverse Bay and surrounding lakes. We particularly loved coming back to this charming house at the end of a long fishing day. The kitchen was so well-stocked, user-friendly, and filled with sunlight! The living area and bedrooms were comfortable and decorated in Victorian style. Great washer and dryer. Nice front porch and back deck. What more could you ask for? A relaxing home away from home!

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a terrific week at this house! All of us were very comfortable: 6 adults and 5 kids under 7, and there was room for all of us. The back deck with the extra chairs was a great spot to sit and catch up with extended family members who stopped by. The house was exceptionally clean, and the kitchen was better equipped than my own! We look forward to a return visit!

Absolute beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from 09/04 to 09/10/2011 at this absolute beautiful home. We spent the week there with our two-year old daughter, her two grandma's and grandpa. The entire house is furnished with beautiful Victorian pieces. We all had wonderful bedrooms, and the kitchen was a chef's dream to cook in. This kitchen had more supplies than my own kitchen. The landlady thought of everything in this house. The backyard had a nice patio with patio furniture and barbecue. The neighborhood is nice and quite, and it only five minutes to walk to the beautiful little village, with very good restaurants, and also just five minutes to the beach and playground. Elk Rapids is a wonderful place to stay and this house was just gorgeous. The landlady had a very professional set-up which we appreciated. We can only say the best about this place, and hope, that we can come back and stay here again.

Spacious, Well-appointed Home

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from a lovely vacation staying at Victoria Place. The home is as advertised -- spacious, convenient to town and to a terrific park on the beach. We also really liked Elk Rapids as a town -- it's one of the few places left in Northern Michigan that has retained its "Up North" charm and still has great shopping and restaurants. It's also very close to Traverse and Charlevoix for anything that you might need. We don't have a boat, so being away from the waterfront was okay for us.

Deborah was very helpful. The house is well appointed with everything you might need. LOVED having a washer and dryer right there when traveling with two kids.

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

This home was a 10+++, and even more beautiful than the pictures. This is a perfect location with downtown Elk Rapids only 2 short blocks away with great shopping, food, a playground, picnic area and beautiful beach. We comfortably slept 9 people and had plenty of room. Everything that we needed was provided for and the home was immaculate in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. We have recommended this home to many people and we will absolutely rent this home again
