Warm and inviting for little ones and their adults


Artfully designed. Conscientiously made.

Play is both indoors and outside. Little ones love to frolic on ELF’s play structure custom designed by CedarWorks® of Maine and the LEGO® and DUPLO® tables. Our sensory marble wall, provided by the Autism Center of Northern Michigan, makes certain there is something for everyone.

In The Garden, ELF’s outdoor seating and play area, little ones experience scratch n’ sniff herbs and flowers and play in the custom designed Hobbit Hole play house from Wooden Wonders™. The Hobbit Hole even has a living roof and gnome! Can you spot our wandering gnome?
