Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Water front property on Elk Lake. Newly renovated with tile and laminate floors. Private, immaculate cottage with open floor plan, just feet from sandy beach. Shallow sandy lake bottom extends yards out off shore. Safe for swimming or just relaxing. Great for water sports! Long views of the lake with spectacular sunsets. Charcoal grill and fire pit for cooking dinner and roasting marshmallows. Enjoy the dock to try your hand at fishing or just for dangling your feet in the water.

Great location only 6 miles from the quaint town of Elk Rapids where you can find a drug store, hardware store, and well stocked grocery. You can also find many restaurants from pizza parlors to fine cuisine. Enjoy the fun shops on River Street or take in a movie at the outstanding Cinema Theater. Elk Rapids also has a marina with access to both Elk lake and Grand Traverse Bay where you can rent a ski or pontoon boat, pick up fishing excursions to Lake Michigan or just enjoy an incredible sunset over the bay.

Should you want to venture a little farther, Traverse City is only 18 miles away and Charlevoix is 30 miles.

Rental dates for the summer of 2016 are limited. We will update the calendar to show availability and start taking reservations in early April 2016.

Charming Cottage On Beautiful Elk Lake
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

The property is nicely secluded and the home is lovely. Nicely appointed, more like staying with a friend than a typical cottage rental. Highly recommended for a peaceful getaway.

Elk Lake Escape

  • 4 of 5

Elk Lake Escape is a much better name for this great little cabin. The house was clean and more modern than most. It's partially secluded, but close to a lot of local activities. Elk Lake is a clear and clean lake. The beach at the house is shallow for a long way out. Because of the shallow there aren't many fish nearby. We caught a lot of little minnows, but no pan sized. Be careful and use the swimmers itch guard provided. We didn't do it the first time out and got caught. Not a big deal, but annoying.

The house has a ton of light, too much light in the master if you want to sleep in. It's extremely comfortable. The house has no air but it was still comfortable in the middle of August with near 80 temps. The home owner provides a lot for you to have a good vacation.

Local activities are abundant, including Elk Rapids beaches, restaurants, walking, fishing, hiking, and Traverse City is only 20 minutes away. Loves State Park was a great trip and less than an hour away.
