Vacation Rental Description
View beautiful Elk Lake through the woods from your charming log house with stone fireplace. Follow a lovely path to a spectacular setting on the lake. We have eight acres and 650 feet of frontage with a nice lawn and beach area where you can enjoy swimming, boating, playing volleyball, or just relaxing at the beach. The 80 foot dock is perfect for sunning, picnicking, or watching the kids swim at the sand bar. In the evening the reflected sunsets, stars, and sometimes fireworks or northern lights can be enjoyed from either the shore next to the fire or out on the dock. The comfortable little house is freshly stained and painted, extremely clean, and very convenient with a newly remodeled and well equipped kitchen. Your vacation should be extremely enjoyable.

We are two miles from a public boat launch and Elk Lake is part of the Antrim County chain of lakes, consisting of Elk, Skegemog, Torch, and Clam lakes flowing into Grand Traverse Bay. The chain offers 45 miles of inland boating through the lakes and four rivers.

Turtle Creek casino is six miles away, the Horse Show by the Bay is 6 miles away, and Traverse City is 14 miles away with all the amenities of a tourist oriented city.
