The beautiful, sandy shores of Elk Rapids attracts boaters, day trippers and sunbathers to this wonderful part of northern Michigan. Grace Memorial Harbor is one of the best around with 220 slips. There are also launches on Birch, Bass and Elk Lake. The village of Elk Rapids offers quaint shops and unique restaurants that will keep you busy all day. On a rainy day, take a step back in time by enjoying a movie at the one-screen movie theater downtown - Elk Rapids Cinema. The area also offers great golf courses and swimming beaches.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location. Wonderful sunsets on your own private beach. Loved hear the waves all day. Especially liked the kayaks, paddle boards and bike included. Great books available to read and family games. Only thing I'd suggest - the cleaning crew get rid of the cobwebs full of bugs along the ceilings. Otherwise, very clean and welcoming family getaway!

Reviewer Comments:

Staying at Piccolo Paradiso-Elk Rapids was amazing! Made lots of memories there! The private beach was great for our little kids who spent many days swimming and playing in the sand. The place was very clean and a perfect setting for a family summer vacation. I would highly recommend this to others and in fact, already have!

Reviewer Comments:

Our family had a wonderful week at Piccolo Paradiso Elk Rapids. The house is a perfect lake house. The beach was the nicest on the strip. Playing in the sand and water all day followed by grilling out and board games before falling asleep to the sound of waves hitting the shoreline was pretty much the best ever in our Northern Mi vacationing experiences.

Absolutely fabulous!!! If there's one thing I could recommend, it would be that the cottage owners should instal window blinds in the kitchen dining room area and all bedrooms. Other than that, it was fantastic.
