Amazing Northern Michigan Homes: Easy Living Fully Remodeled Condo on Elk Lake

For this week’s Amazing Northern Michigan Homes, Whitney Amann and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson take you to a condo on the shores of Elk Lake that was once a historic lodge but recently got a modern makeover.

“We are in the historic rainbow lodge which was built in the twenties as one of the old lodges on Elk Lake,” said Coldwell Banker associate broker Camille Campbell. “They took the old lodge and they made this building into three separate condominiums so there are only three condos sharing 300 feet of frontage.”

This incredible condo clocks in at nearly 2,500 square feet of living space and has been beautifully remodeled while keeping some of its best, historic features.

“The room retains its original beams so it has the beam ceiling and the original stone fireplace, which is just kind of fun to enjoy this great feature but also to pick out all the different stones in it that you can see come from all over,” said Campbell. “We have pieces of Leland blue, Petoskey stones, old coral, it’s just a touch of the old with the all new.”

In addition to the spacious great room, the main floor is where you’ll find an amazing kitchen with modern indigo cabinets, quartz counters and all new stainless steel appliances.

“Then upstairs we have a brand new master suite which overlooks the lake so wake up and look out like in the morning and step into your spa like master bath which is fresh, clean and brand new and then there are two additional bedrooms upstairs with a shared bath that also is a new bath and then what I think is super fun is on the third floor, we have a spiral staircase up to the third floor and it’s currently used as a little bunk room space but would be an amazing work from home private office retreat.”

This former lakeside lodge is in the perfect location for those who like to hit the lake, the links or local businesses.

“You’ve got Elk Lake out your back door, you’ve got the village of Elk Rapids maybe five minutes away, the golf course, Pearls for a nice dinner, everything is right here or 35 minutes to Traverse City,” said Campbell.
