Ideal Vacation home for Water Fun! a boat slip for Boat, Pontoon, Jet Skis. Sandy beach, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing and local attractions. In the small private marina there is a private boat launch, so no need to trailer boats around. Our guests have access to secure their boat on the break wall near the house. Bring up your own boat or rent a boat or pontoon for the week!
When leaving out of the marina by boat head East by slightly Southeast. Head straight for the drop off and then turn south to head out down Elk Lake.
Use the willow tree as your line to go east and come back west to the marina.
Elk lake is a wonderful lake for boating. It is a large lake and connects to other lakes. You can boat through the famous Chain-of-Lakes with over 30 miles of navigable waters featuring Torch Lake (the 'sand bar'), Lake Skegemog, Clam Lake, and Lake Bellaire. Torch Lake is rated as one of the most beautiful fresh water lakes in North America.
A Boater's Paradise is just steps away!
We saved up for 2 years to vacation here with my whole family. When we got there the upstairs was clean but the downstairs where all the little ones were staying had a dirty tank top , dirty sock and candy on the floor ( and not under the bed but laying in plain sight), and a used bar of soap in the bathroom and a used razor on the bathroom floor. The downstairs toilet leaked and couldn't be used. My son-in-law offered to replace the toilet but we were assured that a plumber would be by on Sunday. His wife supposedly went into labor and he never contacted Tracy to let her know he never came. However I called her Monday morning to tell her and sh assured me he would be there that day. Decided I wasn't spending my week making calls and nagging. Also had a mouse run across my daughters foot in the kids bedroom. We had to move the bed and used a fishing net to catch it! Also the advertised DVD player didn't work. It could be a decent house if it was clean and everything worked but we spent ALOT of money and were very disappointed with the house. Making anyone run upstairs anytime they need to use the restroom was very inconvient and no one would use the dirty shower either. I did get an apology via email and understand things happen but this was ridiculas! We will not go back!
Our family had an excellent vacation here! There were 10 of us, ages 2 years to 80 years! We had plenty of room in the 6 bedroom home, and lots of fun activities to do! The views are gorgeous. Loved hearing the call of the loons at night. The beach area was fun for the kids with the swimming platform. We also liked looking for Petoskey stones. The paddleboards were a big hit too! BBQ on the deck was really convenient, and the fire pit for marshmallows was great at night. The guys loved fishing off the peninsula there, and we brought our own fishing boat, and rented their pontoon; which were both docked right in front of the home. Very convenient. The owner and the realty agent were both helpful and accommodating to our needs. Would definitely go back again!
we had a great time….Elk Lake is so beautiful I wish I lived there year round…The marina is a little awkward but not too bad….we had FUN!
Very spacious beach front home with its own marina. I loved that you could have a bonfire near the water. A lot of parking places for all guest. Could accommodate up to 16 guest with six bedrooms, four upstairs and two on lower level with extra room with day bed and pull out sofa. All comfortable sleeping areas. Bonus with two kitchens, one on upper and lower levels, three full bathrooms, two on upper level and one lower level and washer and dyer. I do agree it has a fabulous paradise view!
My family had the best vacation ever at this home! It had something for everyone! We were especially happy with the paddle boards that were left for us to use! The house was in great condition, and fully stocked for all of our needs. I do however recommend packing extra towels, because I know we went through tons of them being in and out of the crystal clear waters on our own sand beach here at the house! Thank God for the washing machine and dryer! :) We had a blast, and will most definitely be back! Its a great place to start some amazing family traditions!
