Elkhorn Lake real estate is a beautiful, but lesser known, market for lake homes and land in Michigan.
Elkhorn Lake is only 13 miles from the Pontiac General Hospital, and the Oakland County International Airport is 16 miles away. Kroger is an excellent grocery shopping choice; it's only 3 miles away. As a bonus, you are only 42 miles away from Detroit, Michigan.
Elkhorn Lake is 45 acres and offers endless things to do under the sun. When it comes to fishing, you are sure to find Rainbow trout, Largemouth bass, and Bluegill. Swimming, canoeing, boating, waterskiing, and tubing are all popular activities on the water. Finally, if you are more of a land person, you can have a lovely stroll around the large perimeter of the lake or have a picnic with the family.
Now, suppose you get hungry while staying in the Oakland area. In that case, these spots are a must: Anita's Kitchen, Valentino's Italian Grill, Mediterranean station, Mi Zarape, Oat Soda Lake Orion.
Once you have had your fill, you can see some sights the town offers. Like Hollygrove Mermaid Grotto, Phryte (Fright) Village, Stepping Stone Falls, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan, and SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium. All within 55 minutes from the lake.
Detroit offers the perfect opportunity for an adventurous day trip. Nicknamed the “Motor City” due to its ties to the auto industry, Detroit is home to enriching museums and fun attractions.
Near Downtown, the neoclassical Detroit Institute of Arts features the Detroit Industry Murals painted by Diego Rivera. The Henry Ford Museum provides a unique opportunity to view exhibits and listen to stories about America’s tradition of ingenuity, resourcefulness, and innovation. Detroit is also home to the famous Rosa Parks Bus and JFK’s limo.
Named the Best Riverwalk in the Country in 2021, the Detroit International RiverWalk offers beautiful sights and a relaxing experience for the whole family to enjoy. The riverwalk grants views of Canada, the Ambassador Bridge, and the GM Renaissance Center. This is a must-see!
If you're looking for a large lake with a small-town feel that isn't too far from a major city, then you've found the perfect match in Elkhorn Lake!
