  • Great get away

    "We rented for a long weekend. The owner was very accommodation and easy to work with. Prices were very reasonable. The house was very adequate for the 4 over night guest and 2 additional day guest. We had tons of room out side for corn hole and dinner under a shade tree. The dock for our boat was a short walk with a slip included in the rental. There was easy access to the main part of the lake. The house is very clean and updated flooring and improved floor plan, improved over its original design and modernized beyond its outside appearance. The decks were spacious and we used them often. The only down side is you need a boat to gain access to water. No swimming at the dock. Great place to stay, we will be back."

    "Rating Details: I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We love staying at Portside Villas #13. This is our fourth year spending a week in June in this condo. The location is perfect and we love that the beach is so private. We also love having the pool to use. The condo is showing some wear. The couch and loveseat in the den is dirty. I even tried cleaning a large stain on the loveseat, but it didn't come out. The edges of the back and arms on the couch and loveseat are just worn and dirty. The refrigerator in the kitchen has several cracked areas in the plastic drawers and shelves. We really missed the refrigerator that was in the garage last year. That refrigerator was very handy to have for cold drinks and ice. The downstairs AC was not working properly when we got there. We assumed it was because of "moving day" where the downstairs door stayed open a lot. When it didn't cool down Saturday night, we called PBP Sunday morning. Connie was very helpful. The repair technician came Sunday around noon and had it back and running very quickly. I really appreciated that Connie (and PBP) were available to us on a Sunday morning. We ended up buying and leaving two baby gates. With the stairs, having baby gates is a must for safety. We are already looking forward to staying there next year! Debbie Clark"

  • Needs a Maid

    "Awesome place... The owner went out of her way to help us out when we were in a jam. Too bad she lives far away and has someone clean it for her. We had to clean the place ourselves when we went in. Had to replace the HVAC filter as it was completely clogged. Dust under Bed in Master Bedroom was 1/4 inch thick...AT LEAST! Owner should visit every now and then to make sure she is getting what she is paying for with her cleaning service."

  • Beautiful!

    "We just spent a week in this lovely condo, as a matter of fact, still driving back home to LI. We have stayed in Beachwalk before, but a different condo, so we knew the location was perfect. Upon entering the condo, the first thing I noticed was that not only do the pictures exactly what you get (which is gorgeous) but the place was so clean. Little soaps and shampoos were left and there were plenty of clean bath towels. The condo is updated and in great condition. Everything you need is there, with the exception of beach towels. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, etc. The location is perfect, a short 5 minute walk to the beach. We are a family of 6 - four kids ages 18, 14, 9 and 5. The younger two enjoyed looking for the alligator which likes to hang out in the lagoon off the deck. The property is managed by Wyndham Vacation Rentals and they do a great job with booking and getting stuff together. I highly recommend this property. It really was great."

Michigan Travel Tips

Lake Michigan Vacation Rentals Along the Michigan Coastline

Lake Michigan has the distinction of holding two titles. The first title is that Lake Michigan is the second largest of the Great Lakes by water volume but the third largest by surface area. If you want a northern vacation in summertime, Lake Michigan vacation rentals will place you in the perfect area. You have it all with Lake Michigan cottages, including great views and plenty of outdoor fun. Your proximity to the beach, wineries, and historical sites is one reason to choose VRBO rentals. You also gain the option of using the fully equipped kitchens instead of eating out, if budget is a concern.

Lake Michigan Cottages are Rich in Past Accounts

Any town, state, or country you visit is going to have history, culture, and heritage to share with you. In the Lake Michigan region, you may want to spend some time learning about the early ancestors and trade movements. The first inhabitants of Lake Michigan were thought to be the Hopewell Indians before 800 AD. It then became a place for the Late Woodland Indians, with the first European explorers reaching Lake Michigan in the early 17th century. A number of tribes such as the Chippewa, Menominee, Sauk, Fox, and Ottawa spent time on the lake. Jean Nicolet was considered the first European explorer to the region followed by Louis Jolliet, Jacques Marquette, and Robert de LaSalle who all put their mark along Lake Michigan.

Lake Michigan Cabins Provide Local fun in the Sun

The Lake Michigan area is rather large, covering over more than 150 miles of coast land. Depending on your location on Lake Michigan, you can expect numerous towns like South Haven, St. Joes, or Lakeside to have Lake Michigan cabins for rent. People travel to Lake Michigan to enjoy the Michigan Coast in the summer. In winter, the temperatures are dramatically cooler, making it almost unpleasant to take a walk on the beach. However, in summer the temperatures can reach the cool 80s Fahrenheit. Swimming, diving, boating, waterskiing, and long walks on the beach are possible each day. From your Lake Michigan vacation rentals, you can watch the sunsets over the water or walk your dogs along the soft sand.

Grand Haven is one place to mention for historical attractions. In Grand Haven, there are two lighthouses which are connected by a catwalk. You may also choose to use a charter fishing company, bike along the paths, or golf at one of the six local courses. Muskegon attractions provide a different type of adventure with the WW II submarine and Prohibition Era Coast Guard Cutter. If that is not enough, there are the Frauenthal Theater or Funnel of Fear at Michigan’s Adventure Park to visit.

Family Meals at Lake Michigan Vacation Rentals

Part of the appeal of Michigan vacation rentals are the kitchens designed for cooking great meals every day of your vacation. If you fish in Lake Michigan, you can arrive back at the rental to prepare your freshly caught meal. There are also plenty of markets, whether you are in South Haven, Grand Haven, or Saugatuck.

Vacations are often about getting away from everyday life, so you might want to take some of the savings the rentals provide and try a meal or two out at local restaurants. Family restaurants are spread throughout the Lake Michigan region. The Idler, Mermaid, Curragh, Kirby’s, Clementines, or Bil-Mar are a few that can be named. All you need to do is a take a stroll down Main Street in any of these towns to find these restaurants and more.

Did you eat a little much at dinner? It is not a problem because the summer hours of the numerous stores provide entertainment after a meal. You can walk along the streets of these towns, window shopping or picking up souvenirs for your friends back at home. Many of the buildings will have an architectural value to add to the experience.
