    Charles L from Floyds Knobs, IN recommends this vacation rental

    I haven't been to northern Michigan since I was a child and then it was to visit Torch Lake. That visit made me want to go back to the area and we found this rental in Elk Rapids.

    We were blown away by the view and really enjoyed the location, the town, the restaurants, and the proximity to Traverse City.

    We'd love to stay at the property again.

    My only complaint is that the outdoor shower was a mess. It was filled with cobwebs, spiders, algae on the walls ... totally freaked out our little kids to have to go in there, but we needed to use the outdoor shower in order to get the sand off them before they went in the house.

    There were 6 of us staying at this property. It was clean and spacious. Everything we needed was provided. The view was beautiful, the location was a bit far if you want to hit wineries and breweries without a tour but we loved it regardless. We would definitely go back.

      We are thrilled you had a great stay! Come back and see us again soon.

    a guest from Plymouth, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Overall the property and stay were wonderful. The property is extremely well equipped and very clean. My personal preference would be to have air conditioning available if it was very hot, and to take up the dampness. Luckily it was not terribly hot. As a personal preference I would have window treatments on the upstairs bedroom window. The bedding didn't seem to be as clean as it could be, having an odor to the pillows and the mattress pad needing washing. Property managers were very helpful and easy to interact with. Would definitely stay again. Love the area.

    a guest from Grand Rapids, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The home was very nice to stay at for the week. With two young children our main concern was the beach. It is a very nice sandy beach. It is shallow for at least 30-50' out which was great for our 4 year old to swim.

    We also like the Elk Rapids area and the rental is in very close proximity to downtown.

    a guest from Frankfort, IN recommends this vacation rental

    We were very pleased with the property. The house had many accessories like flashlights,maps of the area, games, water toys, and a a well equipted kitchen. We had never been to Elk Rapids or even talked with anyone who had been there. A lovely, not too touristy, town nestled between the Bay and the Chain of Lakes. We were not expecting to be in the water as much as we were. With no a/c, and hot days, we were pleased to feel the cool evening breeze off the bay. Elk Rapids s centrally located, so many activities were less than 1/2 hr. driving away.
    The whole experience was great! We would encourage renting the house. Visit Up North was very accomidating and everything was as they said.

    Great house right on Grand Traverse Bay. Can walk into Elk Rapids. House sleeps 6 in bedrooms and also has a pullout sofa which we didn't need. Fire pit on beach was great. Sunsets amazing.
