Best vacation ever!

What an amazing place to vacation! The owners thought of everything you could possibly need. For young children, a high chair, pack and play and toys for the beach. The kitchen has every appliance you can think of. The beach area is beautiful! This is a wonderful place to rent!

A beautiful house at a beautiful location!

This is the second summer my family has spent at this lake house, and we love it! The house is clean, the kitchen is well stocked, and the beach is sandy and shallow. We have gone with our two young children (ages 1 and 4), and the house is safe and fully equipped with items such as children's dishes and a high chair. We also love that the house is near the end of a dead end private road, so the neighborhood is quiet and safe for walking and biking in the road. While off the beaten path, it is also close enough to Elk Rapids for a quick trip to the grocery store or to stroll the downtown area. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing week on the bay!

Perfect place for a family get together

This is a wonderful house in a wonderful setting. My extended family loves to get together and cook and eat--what a perfect place for that. The kitchen is even better stocked that my own. There is a large table that easily accommodated eight adults (plus a guest we had for dinner one night). The sunsets over the peninsula across the way were gorgeous. The recommended Elk Rapids store had everything we needed. It was a little chilly when we were there and several of us had issues that prevented us from using the inviting-looking kayaks, but we were still very happy to have such a lovely beach. The hosts were helpful and responsive. Who could ask for more???

Perfect Location and Outstanding Rental

We spent a week with friends and family and really enjoyed the soft sandy beach, cool breezes, and amazing sunsets on the porch/living room. The water toys were a very nice touch and we spent hours playing in the sand, kayaking, paddle boarding, and floating in the clear blue/green waters. There are many outdoor things to do in the area such as exploring the lakes, boat rentals, fishing, shopping, hiking, etc. There are great restaurants nearby in Elk Rapids or Traverse City, or plenty to do right on the property with a local grocery store or Meijer within 25 min. to stock up on food. There are tall pine trees, a very nice deck and fire pit by the beach, and the property feels very big and private. The house was very well equipped, clean, with nice amenities and plenty of room for everyone! Thanks for a great vacation up north!

Beauty, privacy, recreation

Enjoy the sunset across Grand Traverse Bay from your private beach, campfire, beachside deck, or house deck. Play in the crystal clear 3-5 foot deep water for hundreds of yards out - swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding. Boats are provided. The beach is shared only with neighbors. The water is only used by neighbors' paddlecraft - it is too shallow for regular boat traffic. House has spacious, bright interior with tasteful furnishings, quality kitchen and dining ware. Walk and cycle a private one lane road ending 10 houses down. Farm and shore roads provide an alternate to busy route 31 all the way in to Elk Rapids. The only thing missing - an outdoor shower - is planned for next year.

family memories on Traverse Bay

We met in Michigan with our adult children and their grandfather. The house is wonderfully set up for multiple generations to share and yet have privacy. There are spaces to gather inside and out, and to retreat for a nap (boys fought over the hammock) or a cozy spot to read. My dad was able to have his own bedroom and bath just off the kitchen, ideal for someone with mobility issues. The decks were our living rooms, the bay is perfect for all watersports and the owners have provided boats, paddleboards, chairs, umbrellas, nothing lacking! We appreciated the kitchen, clearly stocked by cooks. Elk Rapids has wonderful restaurants, a market, bakery and many farm stands, but honestly, we didn't need to leave! We will be back.

Absolutely perfect beach home to share with friends and family!

I highly recommend a stay at this beautiful home. The owners are very pleasant to deal with and extremely accommodating. The house is spacious, up to date, and very comfortable. We had a party of 10 and had no problem fitting 4 adults and 6 children. The owners thought of everything we might have needed and were very clean and organized--we didn't want for a thing! The beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. The beach was soft and sandy and there were plenty of chairs and toys provided along with nice kayaks and paddleboards. There is a local market and some nice restaurants close by but the home itself is on a quiet, secluded street. I cannot say enough positive things about our stay--we would return in a heartbeat!Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.

A great home to share a week with your family!

This house is perfect for a family get away. It is spacious, well decorated, and the owners are really great to work with! I would highly recommend it, and my family looks forward to renting it again. The house is well decorated, comfortable, and well stocked with amenities to ensure a comfortable and relaxing vacation. It has a beautiful outside deck with seating and hammock. In addition, the beautiful sandy beach is right there, and perfect for relaxation or water sports. Finally, the location is great. Located on a quiet street, just a couple of miles from downtown Elk Rapids, you have easy access to a last minute grocery store purchase or a great meal out! My family and I had a great time, and I am sure yours will too!
