pine hollow

pine hollow - elk rapids, mi

Pine Hollow which has been called an “architectural masterpiece”, was designed to  embody the elemental nature of the Northwest Lower Michigan region where it was built: Michigan white oak timber posts and beams, local granite and limestone, a seamless flow between the indoor spaces and the dunes, woods, and waterfront outside. Located three minutes from downtown Elk Rapids and directly on East Bay on Lake Michigan, only 50 feet from the waters edge, with incredible sunset views, and views of Old Mission Point.  Very close to Torch Lake (rated the third most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic) and Elk Lake where pontoon boats can be rented to access both 3 minutes from home.  Traverse City and Cherry Capital Airports are twenty minutes away.  The home also sits within a radius of about 60 miles to 8 of the top 11 golf courses in Michigan. 

Based on two people per queen bed and one person per twin bed, the home sleeps 32 people.
