    "We have stayed in the area (including another unit at Maui Vista) a number of times - we found this unit to be well equipped,in good condition, and in a good location (no street noise). The owner is quick to respond and helpful. We booked again for next year."

  • Returning Vactioners to This Home for 10 Years

    "We have stayed in this lovely Tahoe home for the past 10 years. My husband and I would enjoy the home, as a couple, with friends. It was perfect for friends to gather and relax as a group. Hiking, biking, golfing, relaxing at the beach, dining, this house was perfect. Since then we enjoy it with our family. We have used this home as an annual vacation rental for our family trip with our two kids. It's the perfect family vacation house. It sleeps everyone comfortably, is well equipped for kids and is in the perfect location. Close to Tahoe City, membership in the Tahoe Park Association, close to the beach, parks, everything is at your fingertips. The house is well maintained, comfortable, has amazing amenities and is perfect for your family getaway with the kids, or for a group of friends looking to relax and have fun in Lake Tahoe. The bedrooms have a lot of privacy and a variety of sleeping options. The kitchen is perfectly suited for anyone who loves to cook or for those who just want to eat out. The BBQ and outdoor decks are nice for evenings at home. The family room is spacious and comfortable and has a nice open layout. The downstairs area has a lovely den that is great for kids and relaxing. We love this house, we love Lake Tahoe and we look forward to returning to this house for our yearly summer vacations."

  • We just had a great time in this beautiful villa!

    "We really loved this perfectly located house with its great pool, beautiful terrace and garden and this amazing sea view. In the house we found everything we needed for our 3 weeks stay and all was clean and well-kept. Also we appreciated very much that we could reach the beach in only 2 minutes by foot and that the hiking trails start almost behind the house. The renter was always helpful, uncomplicated and super-friendly. We had a lovely holiday!"

    "This was our second year renting West Water Place and we have nothing but great things to say. First the owners are most helpful in every way. We have found the house spotless and fully equipped to accommodate 6 adult female seniors ( and we are pretty fussy). We were able to walk to excellent restaurants come home and enjoy the view. No matter where we went, shopping, wineries, beaches etc. were all excellent. We plan to return next year."

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.
