Just a Stones Throw was a perfect location for a 4 day Up North stay. The house is a charming cottage very close to the lake. We enjoyed an evening stroll to watch a lovely sunset. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen and living room were perfect for family games and relaxation. Traverse City is only about 30 minutes away and Elk Rapids only about 10 minutes. Our host was nice and helpful. Our only critique was the back two bedrooms were a bit moldy smelling and we felt that scratchy throats in the morning was due to that.

We wish we would have more time just to sit and enjoy the cottage. We visited during Elk Rapids' Harbor Days, met friends who were also vacationing in the area, spent some time at our lake lot (including kayaking) and checked out the area. We never had the time to sit around the firepit or even turn on the TV. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The enclosed porch was wonderful at night and we heard the loons. The lake is a very short walk and we appreciated the quiet neighborhood. The list of restaurants was very helpful.
