Great location, clean, well equiped, nice managers.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Elk Rapids and took many walks down to the water and to the main street shopping area. We enjoyed the restaurants there. The place had a great master bedroom with a very comfortable bed but the twin bed in the 2nd bedroom was not comfortable at all. We had hoped to sit out on the porch and enjoy the weather and the view but there really wasn't much of a porch, just chairs looking out on the parking lot. We also had hoped to open the windows and get nice breezes but most of the windows were fixed. We were disappointed with the tv channels, couldn't find any of our favorites. Overall, it was a nice stay. I guess we were expecting something different for the price.

Owner's Response: Since this is the first negative review we have received we feel compelled to respond. The mattresses and bedding for the twin beds are brand new and plush. Being a twin bed may be the issue. The comfortable chairs on the back landing can be moved for a better view of the harbor and water. One window in each of the living & bedroom area open. The large window is stationary, however with heat & air conditioning we've never had complaints. There are basic rooms at several hotels starting at $385 a night. We contend our squeaky clean and convenient location to every amenity far exceeds the price.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Our purpose for this stay was to celebrate Mom's 89th birthday! We needed two bedrooms close by. This unit was located in the middle of Elk Rapids. Stores and restaurants right there. The marina was close and a pleasant walk. Unit had all that was needed for a long week end stay. Clean Very Clean and homey. We would go back again for a long weekend. Nice to have contact with owners that were friendly and helpful.
