  • Great place to stay in a very nice beach side town

    "We stayed here for a month after a broken water pipe flooded us out of our house and we had to move out for construction. This house is great very comfortable three large bedrooms and two recently remodeled bathrooms and has every amenity you will need even a wii game which was great for my son. Great location short walk to beach and Main St and view of Anaheim Bay from patio also the owner does allow pets she does charge a pet deposit but are deposit was promptly refunded within a few days after vacating the property. This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it I give it an A+ thank you for a very pleasant stay."

  • Wonderful Casita and Great Location

    "The description and pictures of the Saguaro Moon Casita are very accurate. This home is minutes away from the 101 Loop which I found to be most convenient for traveling to some nearby cities such as Cave Creek, Carefree, Scottsdale and many more. The home is clean, nicely decorated, great patio furniture for morning coffee/evening beverage, and the amenities are many and of high quality. I found the area to be quiet and felt very safe at any time of day or night. Great restaurants a short drive away. Owners were wonderful to work with and very accommodating."

  • A month of heaven!

    "This is overdue!!! Just wanted to thank the owners for the wonderful stay we had in their beautiful home. It was everything we wanted. Open beachy clean pretty and has the best kitchen ever! It was so much fun cooking in this kitchen that we only ate out three times all month. Every Sat. we rode our bikes to the farmers market in Seaside and to the fish market for our suppers. We even caught some of our own fish!!! Also enjoyed the fact that there are no homes on either side or behind the house had this beautiful space all to our self. The location of the house is great, close to everything. We rode our bikes everywhere, no need to use the car. This home is beautiful and we plan to make our next stay longer."

  • Great Vacation!

    "We love Buena Vista Condo's! Right on the beach, great views and the gated pool is perfect. Everyone we met were very nice and friendly. Condo was clean and had exactly what we needed. Carpets were in great condition and looked clean. All beds were very comfortable. Very nice and comfortable chairs on the deck. The door is opened with a preset entry code, which concerned us at first in case it wouldn't work; but it did and we were very pleased not to have to worry about carrying or losing keys. Wish more vacation condo's were like that. Living room sofa and chair were comfortable but could use new slipcovers; they were faded and had some spots. The two bottom drawers in the dresser in the master bedroom didn't slide very easy, so we couldn't use those. These items would not stop us from renting this condo again next year. Shane was very easy to work with and the payment system was safe and easy."

Lake Michigan Area Travel Tips

Attractions at Lake Michigan Vacation Rentals

Lake Michigan is an impressive stretch of water that extends more than 375 miles from north to south. At its widest part, it covers a distance of more than a 100 miles from east to west; on average, it is just over 50 miles wide. The southern parts of the lakeshore are well developed with the metropolis of Chicago being the main center. As you travel further north, the lakeshore is more remote and dotted by the occasional village or small town. The scenery is spectacular and the natural surroundings are a haven for outdoor and adventure activities. In the winter months, there are extensive trails for snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Ice fishing is another popular pastime. In the summer months, many people take to the lake to enjoy a variety of water sports. Boating, sailing and fishing are some of the most popular activities. Young kids can also enjoy waterskiing, wake boarding and tubing on the lake.

Visitors to Lake Michigan Cottages

Because of the many activities available, Lake Michigan is a favorite family vacation destination. The cities provide loads of excitement and the small towns that dot the lake shore provide welcoming communities for visitors of all ages. Local general stores offer groceries and fishing supplies so you never have to travel far to stock up. Lake Michigan is a vacation destination where you can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities. Whether you choose to spend your days out on the water or enjoying the scenic lakeshore, it's almost certain that you'll never be bored. People that enjoy the outdoors will find loads to see and do. Those who are looking for a peaceful vacation escape can simply enjoy the lake scenery from their vacation homes.

Home-style Comfort at Lake Michigan Cabins

The vacation homes on Lake Michigan vary in style and design and you can certainly find a home that is suited to your personal tastes. Choose from rustic log cabins tucked in among the trees, or modern stylish homes that reflect a level of sophistication. Most vacation homes are spacious and many can accommodate up to 10 or 12 people. This makes them ideal for a family vacation or for getting together with a group of friends. Well-equipped kitchens make holiday catering easy and most homes have a host of modern kitchen appliances to make life convenient. Multiple bedrooms ensure that everyone in your vacation party has more than enough space to enjoy their vacation. A large fireplace is a standard feature in most vacation homes. It is a great place to congregate around in the evenings as you socialize with friends and family.

Traveling to Lake Michigan

The primary travel hub for Lake Michigan is the city of Chicago. Located on the southwestern tip of Lake Michigan the city is home to the O'Hare International Airport. Chicago's airport is one of the busiest in the United States as it provides international, regional and domestic flight connections to North America. It should be easy to find a direct flight to Chicago from your hometown as the city hosts regular daily scheduled flights from most major cities in North America. If you plan to vacation on the far northwestern shores of Lake Michigan, you may consider flying into Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport in Minnesota. The Twin Cities are just over 250 miles from the lakeshore. There are good road and rail connections along Lake Michigan's shoreline which makes getting to your vacation home easy.
