The Elk Grove…
a cottage in downtown Benezette with views that beat looking at the closest neighbor.
When we started renting out Camp Can’t Keep Up three years ago, one of the things that we really felt would attract people was the location, close enough to Benezette, but far away enough that tenants would have some privacy. On Mother’s Day of this year, we spotted a “For Sale” sign on Route 555 and we decided to investigate.
Right in the middle of Benezette, yikes. At first glance, this wasn’t an ideal location for another vacation rental. The more we toured the property, the more we fell in love. Despite being in the middle of downtown Benezette, this cottage, now named “The Elk Grove” after the former owners, Walt and Donna Grove, sits at the end of a long gravel drive and is backed by wooded land that are home to many of the local elk herd.
In fact, the former owners told us stories about how “Fred,” the former town Bull, used to lay in their mulch bed under the bedroom windows! It is the perfect balance of close and far away; just one mile from the Elk Country Visitor’s Center, guests are within walking distance to local attractions, but have enough space and seclusion that you aren’t looking at another cottage or cabin 10 yards away.
