  • Location location loaction.....What a beautiful location!

    "I would like to thank you again for the great time my family had at your Captiva home. It was fabulous! We really enjoyed our time there and your place was wonderful. I thought it was wonderful that you provided the laundry detergent, dish soap and some of the other items that you need when you stay at a place (the foil, lunch bags, salt and paper) the basket with the snacks was also very much appreciated. The place was very clean and in a central location so we could walk to everywhere we wanted to go. the beach was beautiful! Thank you again for calling too. It was so nice that you take the time to call and make sure our stay was going to be great. I loved the personal touch! The tip about watching the sun rise and where to see the matinees was also appreciated. We really enjoyed the large selection of books and left a few as well. On the rainy day it was great that we could watch the net flicks and did not have to leave the house. Thank you again for the wonderful vacation we had at your Captiva home. Hopefully we can come again next year! Thanks so much!"

  • For 2 weeks we are in heaven:-)

    "Our family has been renting Pine Lodge for 11 years, we have nothing but rave reviews for the cottage and it’s owners Jim and Kathy! We enjoy our summers so much that we even rented the cottage for 4 days in 2011 to celebrate Thanksgiving, staying through that weekend. Our family of 4, our extended family (2 brothers and their families), cousins from IN, and friends from St. Louis have enjoyed the cottage. A cousin made the trek from NY this past summer based on our review of Grand Haven and Pine Lodge! The owners have been nothing but accommodating, friendly and respectful of our family vacation. The cottage is the total package - can't think of anything it is missing. On the rare occasion that we have had any problems (we can only remember twice) they have addressed them immediately. The neighbors are all fabulous; we’ve been invited to parties at their homes including an impromptu visit at one of the cottages after enjoying one of the beautiful GH sunsets. We can’t say enough good things about Pine Lodge, its owners and GH in general. It is a great family vacation made better by our renting of Pine Lodge each summer. We look forward to seeing all of the updates that have been made to the cottage each summer and the newest hot spots suggested on the greeting sheet. There are many cottage owners who do not put money back into their cottages, just collect the rent. Jim and Kathy make improvements each year that we have rented. In general – we are in heaven when we are in GH, staying at Pine Lodge. Our grown children still enjoy and look forward to coming - even if only for a long weekend, they feel it is worth it! We are looking forward to the point when they have families who will join in the fun. Thank you to Jim and Kathy for providing such a great house for us to enjoy."

  • Great Guys Weekend

    "10 of us gathered here for a 4 day weekend and had a blast. The house is well appointed and the kitchen was fully stocked. The owner was great to work with and check in and out was easy. The location was very good. We never quite figured out skiing in or out, but it was an easy 3 minute drive to the main parking lot. The pool table and ping pong got a good workout and the hot tub was great. Overall we really enjoyed the house and would 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.

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.
