House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

This exceptional "Lighthouse" home actually has a working light in the tower that acts as an actual lighthouse!

The Conservatory also provides additional 1/2 mile of waterfront on Elk Lake.

If you're looking for a unique and unforgettable experience for your vacation...this is your spot! The home has many extra's including a separate mini bar with a wine refrigerator, large game room with a pool table, hockey table and skeet ball game! The home has 2 kitchens/dining areas, flat screen TV's, a large flat screen in the living room and game room, a new "man cave" with flat screens, sauna and hot tub. Private with room to move (both in and outdoors) with an additional 255 acres of the Battle Creek Conservatory to explore (map is provided),additional waterfront access, and multiple area's to relax and enjoy a bon fire. Sit along the Conservatory and take in the natural wildlife or sit on the side porch and read a book. This home is an excellent location for fishing, as well as boating, and you can access Torch Lake (and the Chain Of Lakes) from this location! Take a drive into Elk Rapids or Traverse City and explore what Northern Michigan is all about.

Elk Lake is one of the most popular lake in this area, for many reasons. The water temperature and beaches (warm and sandy). Whereas the other lakes have become mucky or very shallow (for 100-200 feet) due to the loss in recent water levels over the past several years. Elk Lake is a great all-sports lake large enough for all types of watercraft and fabulous fishing; whereas smaller lakes can only accommodate paddle boats or fishing boats due to the lake noise level while operating motorized watercraft. Expensive real estate for this area, and high demand.

This home is located less than 4 miles from the Flinfields Horse Park, the location of the Horse Show By the Bay!
