“It’s a designer home, nice lodge feel to it and just a beautiful setting here on the east side of Elk Lake,” said Don Fedrigon, real estate broker with Re/Max.

This beautiful lodge style home was built in 2005 on what used to be part of the Chippewa Trails camp for girls.

“We’re on 105 feet of Elk Lake frontage, it’s a little over an acre,” said Fedrigon. “Part of the Chippewa Trails girl’s camp, which was formerly a corporate retreat after the girl’s camp and this is the beach for the camp so nice, sandy frontage here.”

The amenities of this stunning property are a far cry from what you would have seen as a camper.

From the stunning stone fireplace that reaches all the way up to the vaulted ceilings to the spacious bedrooms, this home comes well equipped for comfort.

“It has a designer kitchen, granite, all stainless, nice views from every room,” he said. “Some designer bathroom fixtures, a lot of trade ceilings, some unique light fixtures. This home has a beautiful screened in porch. It gives you nice views of the lake and extended living area in the summertime, gives you a nice spot to entertain and barbecue. There’s nice pavers and walkway outside made of stone with an outdoor kitchen.”

This amazing piece of property lets you experience all of your favorite parts of summer camp while enjoying the luxury of a gorgeous, upscale home.

“The acreage of the camp is still intact so you have a nice long driveway coming in, very private, and tennis courts,” said Fedrigon. “A lot of nice things here.”

If you’re looking for a nice, private location on the lake you’ll definitely find that here.

The wood siding gives it a nice northerly feel,” he said. “It’s got a beautiful setting here, very private, nice sand beach, and I think just a quality home.”
