  • Great area, great conod

    "The condo was definitely what we were looking for....beautiful location! Though it is a little dated, it had everything we needed for our stay and was roomy. The family above was super loud, though nothing to the fault of the condo owners, hopefully they could talk to the association about that particular owner. Otherwise everything was flawless and we could not have asked for a better place to stay! They made the processes very very easy which is a super ++++ when traveling and using site like this one! Would recommend to family and friends for sure-"

  • Love This Cottage!

    "My wife and I, along with my mother and our eight year old daughter spent a wonderful Labor Day Weekend here. The cottage is very clean and well maintained with a lot more room than you would think. It's quiet and a pretty short walk to the water. We were able to drive to Harbor Light Marina in about 10-15 minutes so the location, which is right off I-85, was great. We look forward to returning!"

  • A Spacious and Beautiful Condo in Frankfort!!

    "I was ecstatic walking into this condo for the very first time! My son claims his favorite thing about our trip was watching my reaction to our condo on that first day. It was so much more than what was depicted in the pictures. It was spacious and clean and accommodated our extended family of 11 wonderfully! We had plenty of space to come together, as well as, space to go our separate ways. We loved being in the midst of downtown Frankfort and the views from the patio were awesome. We enjoyed watching soccer games while eating in the Brewery and Fusion. Both the beach and the park were easy walks to make with the grand kids. We made a trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes and climbed the dunes off the public beach as well. I can see our family coming back again and again and again!"

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.

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.
