  • summer vacation

    "I am just returning from my week stay at the sandcastle, overall my stay was good,the home was just what you need for vacation, the pool was very nice to have, the bedrooms/beds are small you will want to rent the golf cart as the walk to the beach is a little further than I expected. Angela (property manager) was great greeted us upon arrival and answered all questions"

  • Peaceful and Tranquil - Perfect Place to Unwind

    "We had a wonderful week at this oceanfront cottage. Sheila greeted us on arrival, and pointed out that the whales (orcas) were coming through the Active Pass. We saw them nearly every day, as well as otters, seals, deer, a raccoon, bald eagles and other birds such as cedar waxwings, turkey vultures, kingfishers and herons. This cottage has the perfect setting, and the large windows give a great view. The sunrises were spectacular, and there were shore access points to enjoy at a few minutes' walk away. Galiano Island has that "get away from it all" feel, with a slower, gentler pace of life. The cottage is in keeping with that, and has a beautiful old-fashioned charm about it. We enjoyed walking down to the bakery and book shop at Sturdies Bay, and also the Saturday Market. The Bluffs, Bellhouse Provincial Park, Arbutus Point Road and the shore access points at Mary Ann Road were great places to walk with our dogs. Thank you Sheila and Keith for sharing this property with us and allowing us to bring our dogs, who also had a great time."

  • Perfection in Cabo

    "I researched for days before making my decision to stay at Villa La Estancia, and this unit in particular. We had stayed in San Jose Del Cabo in a time share resort once before - it was all inclusive and knew we didn't want to do that again. From the advice on transportation (Transpacifico), to the comfort and size of this unit, we were amazed. This unit is far more beautiful than even the photos show. The unit is spotless and very modern with luxery throughout. We relaxed, slept well, felt safe and spoiled. My new favorite spot in Cabo is on the deck of this unit."

  • Sister getaway

    "It was a perfect setting for a low-key, relaxing getaway. The beautiful, modern condo had everything we needed, including a great view of the everchanging shoreline. It was great to watch the sunrise while sitting at the kitchen table. We enjoyed the local seafood dining, shopping, and other entertainment. Getting around on the island was easy, using the maps and information provided by the owner."

Lake Huron Area Travel Tips

Over 3,800 Miles of Stunning Scenery at Lake Huron Vacation Rentals

One of the five Great Lakes and the second largest, Lake Huron is partially in the state of Michigan in the United States and partially in the province of Ontario, Canada. It is also the world’s fifth largest freshwater lake. Its name comes from early French explorers who based it on the name of the original inhabitant of the area. With its 30,000 islands, Lake Huron has the longest shoreline of any of the Great Lakes at over 3,800 miles. With excellent airport links and roads, including major interstate and state highways, the area surrounding the lake is easily accessible. The weather here makes for perfect warm summer vacations or all the fun of a snowy winter wonderland.

Fabulous Fishing and Much More at Lake Huron Cottages

One of the most popular activities around here is, of course, fishing. Wherever visitors to Lake Huron cabins choose as a vacation base, they will find they are close to the lake, with marinas, launching areas, docking facilities and boat charters available. With its many bays and quiet cove areas, it is an ideal place for sailing as well as fishing. The lake is kept well stocked with a wide variety of native species. Those looking to spend some time fishing from the shore or by boat will be rewarded with a species such as a variety of trout, including brown and rainbow, Coho Salmon, herring, pike, bass, and perch. Die-hard fishermen may even want to try ice fishing in winter here. Of course, it is not just about the fishing, with many opportunities to enjoy kayaking, boating, sailing, swimming and diving.

All around the lake are hiking trails for summer that become cross country skiing and snowshoeing areas during the winter months. Visitors will find trails to suit beginners or advanced hikers and skiers. Many areas also provide great spelunking (caving) opportunities for the more adventurous. There are also many biking trails here, as well as wonderful opportunities to get out into the forest areas around the lake on horseback. For a real bird’s eye view of the lake in its entire splendor, try a helicopter tour. For the romantics, perhaps a winter sleigh ride would be the perfect day out.

Choose Michigan or Canada

As great as the great outdoors is, it is nice to have something to look forward to in the evenings, and visitors to Lake Huron vacation rentals will find they are well taken care of in this regard. With a choice of so many towns dotted around the lake, either in Michigan or over the border in Canada, there are plenty of options for those who like an active nightlife. These towns know how to take care of their guests, and visitors will find a wide variety of taverns, pubs and nightclubs offering good food, great company and dancing to a wide variety of music.

Lake Huron Cabins With Docks and a Welcome for the Dog

Pick from Lake Huron cottages in areas such as Cedarville or Drummond Island on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula; Alpena and Caseville in Lower Michigan or Canadian resorts such as Grand Bend, Southampton or Wasaga Beach are among the huge variety of towns to base your vacation. Most come with views of the lakes and many will be just steps from the shoreline. Whichever town is most suited to your vacation, one thing is certain--the home you choose as your base will be a great one. Homes come in a variety of sizes, from small and cozy to large and spacious, and each will be equipped with everything needed and more. Find homes with log furnishings, indoor Jacuzzis or outdoor hot tubs, pool tables, big screen TVs, docks, or even boats! The owners think of everything, and many even welcome the dog!
