We (family of 7 with kids 3yrs - 18yrs) have been vacationing in the Elk Rapids area for the past 6 years. We always rent lakefront and end up packing the whole family in a small 2-3 bedroom cottage. As a boat owner, it always made sense to stay on a lake. However, this year we had other plans for the summer and decided to pass on our trip to Elk Rapids. As the summer was coming to an end, the kids said it didn't feel right not going up North. I began looking online and found this rental. After speaking with Paul personally, I knew this was the place for us. In addition, we would have enough room for all 7 of us....and my mother in-law (yes, I have a great one!). Upon arrival, we fell in love with our vacation home. It was perfect. We were a within minutes of everything...either by bike or walking. Our favorite pizza shop, antique shop, coffee and donuts hangout, movie theater, awesome public beach with playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, toy store, harbor, fishing spots, library, and so much more. We brought our boat along also. It was great because we has a choice between Elk Lake or Lake Michigan...both launches were within 1/2 mile. Our home was full of everything we needed and we didn't have to ask for anything. We played cards every night, and I could walk to the movie theater for popcorn...that was amazing! Our home had central air, which as great because it was in the upper 80's for our entire stay. The other 2 units were occupied, but we didn't know it...never heard a sound from either place. We are planning to return next year...had more fun than any other stay in the area.
Our family tradition of vacationing in Elk Rapids started decades ago. We have rented numerous/various facilities over the years but have been most happy with this one. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. The units are always clean, stocked, and ready when we arrive. The Cuddy (1-bedroom) is our personal favorite; charming, private, and intimate; the perfect unit for a romantic getaway although there is a comfortable pullout in the living room which worked out well for our son when he was up for a couple of days during the week. The Captain's Quarters (4-bedrooms) sleeps our many nieces, nephews, cousins, and more. It has lots of living space for get-togethers and playing games.
If you like mice, mold, filthy carpet, leaking sinks, peeling paint, and broken beds, then the Cuddy is for you. This was one of the worst travel experiences of my life!
