Overview

Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

What a great opportunity to get away from it all on beautiful Elk Lake, a part of the Chain O' Lakes. With beautiful frontage and sunset views, you will think you found paradise. Located on the old Chippewa Trail Girl Scout Camp in Rapid City, this is like stepping back in time. Relax under acres of tall trees running down to the lake. Single level cottages in a very quiet area where kids can play and ride their bikes. This location includes 2 cabins.

"Tonda," is the studio cottage right on the lake. 1 King bed and 1 air mattress. Small kitchenette features full refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. Full bathroom with shower/tub. Relax on the deck with great views of Elk Lake. Charcoal grill.

"Tonda 2," is a one bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage off the water (only a 5 minute walk to get there though!). Sleeps 5 with 1 queen and 2 Twins in the bedroom and Twin sofabed in the living room. Full bathroom with shower stall. Kitchenette with full refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. Stove and oven in the common laundry building that you are welcome to use.

WIFI and Direct TV in Tonda (the waterfront cottage). TV (no satellite) and DVD player but no wifi in Tonda 2 (other cottage). Window Air conditioners in both cabins. There is a shared tennis court, basketball court and laundry as well. Cottages include canoe. Your well-mannered pet is welcome. Linens are included.

Will consider weekly or short stays during any season. Summer 3 night minimum.

Reviewer Comments:

I took a group of guys up here for a weekend get away for a bachelor party and we had a fantastic time, Elk lake is beautiful and the cabins tucked away in the woods was just the experience we were looking for. The cabins were beautiful inside and had everything we needed. One surprise was the difficulty of identifying which cabins were actually ours, and the distance between the two was further than expected. This distance wasn't an issue at all however, as we would spend the day by the water, and head to the larger cabin at night where we had excellent neighbors who we enjoyed bon fires with every night. Would highly recommend this escape to anybody, and the plus of being a couple miles from Torch Lake over the 4th was amazing.

Reviewer Comments:

It was fine except for 2 items. Upon arrival we could not find cabin so called office and they were totally clueless-they said they had no idea where the cabin was. How is that possible??? Also, hard torn screen on front door which took time to fix and then repair person came an hour beyond latest time we were promised. Didn't appreciate that but otherwise stay was nice.

We had a very nice stay up north using Tonda Cabin #1 and #2. The accommodations worked well for 2 families traveling together. The cabins were just a short distance from each other and each cabin had the amenities we needed.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the tonda beachfront cabin. Having a fire pit, a boat dock and direct access to Elk Lake, it was the prefect weekend. We plan to utilize more of the cabins for a bigger family gathering in the future. Thank you!
