Recent Lake Michigan Area reviews

  • Exceptional service and location

    "The apartment was great for our family and 2 young daughters who enjoyed the space. It is in walking distance from Notre Dame and Centre Pompidou and is situated in a lovely neighborhood. The corner cafe - Cafe Charlot - was exceptional. Louis the property manager was exceptional in helping us prepare for and enjoy a wonderful stay in Paris. We traded numerous emails that he patiently answered regarding planning our trip. Louis arranged transportation, a private tour of Versailles where we cut the long line and bought museum passes for us as well as provided numerous restaurant recommendations. He provided better service than we've experienced from a 5-star hotel concierge. We recommend the apartment and Louis."

  • Great place, perfect location

    "We stayed here for a week and everything was just marvelous! The condo is exactly as described/pictured, and Alana was very helpful in setting us up with all that we needed. The beach is beautiful and only steps away. Lots of attractions are close-by (rain forest, bio bay, horseback riding, ferries to islands) and Luquillo has lots of restaurants. It's an easy walk to grocery store too. We've rented many apts before and this was really nice as everything we needed was provided - from beach chairs, sand toys & towels, to coffee filters & saran wrap. When we come back to Puerto Rico, we hopefully can stay again!"

  • A magical wedding week!

    "The cottages were the perfect and relaxing base for a hectic week of wedding preparations and celebration. We stayed in the Harvey Cottage and had family in the larger cottage. Both spaces were charmingly furnished, clean and provided sumptuous bedding and attention to detail. Even in the waning days of autumn, the gardens were enticing and provided a lovely backdrop for our wedding photos. We look forward to returning to see the gardens in bloom. If I have one critique, it's that the proprietors were not as responsive as I'd like when we were first planning our stay. But be patient... it is well worth the wait."

  • Great Stay

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Lazy River it's super clean and Dan added some nice touches like bottled water and lots of towels. We stayed here as we were dropping off our daughter at ASU 10 minutes to campus and we had lots of room to stretch out."

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.

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.

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.
