A nice house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house has a private setting since it backs up to a large park. The park offers beaches, trails, playgrounds, and a boat launch. We had a great stay.

Mac N Cheese Fest getaway

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place, beautiful location great value. Would return and stay here again. Only complaint would be not enough casual setting to just hang out and watch TV, but not that big of a deal :) Owner very easy to work with, responded to emails quickly. Thanks!

Great rental home

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for a couples weekend. In our group there were three couples, and there was enough space for everybody. We used the 3 bedrooms, all with king sized beds, which was nice. 2 bathrooms was also a nice feature. Our goal was to relax and go wine tasting. The location of this home was close to many wineries, breweries and downtown Traverse City. Suggestions for the home owner: the dishwasher did not work properly. It would start running and then turn off. We made many attempts to run it and ended up washing everything by hand. Also it may be a good idea to have some Saran Wrap, aluminum foil and baggies available for your renters. All in all in was a beautiful home and a great find.

If you look on the map provided you will see a green square on the southwest part of Elk Lake. It says Whitewater Twp park and my house backs up to that green square.
