  • Great Vacation

    "My husband and I recently stayed at the Barlovento for one week. It was one of the best vacations we ever had. The condo is beautiful. The grounds are very well kept. The location is great. The people are extremely friendly. The interior and exterior of the condo is exactly as depicted. It is clean, comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. We enjoyed the bbq on the deck and the well stocked kitchen. The pool is clean and there are enough loungers for everyone. We highly recommend this location and hope to visit again soon."

  • Telluride Condo

    "This is an excellent property. The location is perfect -- an easy/short walk to lift 7 and only about 15 minutes to the main gondola. In addition it is a 5 minute walk the to the grocery store (most of the walk is in inside), and less than 10 minutes to the liquor store and one of the best restaurants in Telluride. The condo itself is stylish & modern, has a great view and is very well equipped. The property easily accommodated our 5 travelers. I would highly recommend it!"

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.

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.

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.

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.
