  • Three Generations on the Oregon Coast

    "Our family - three generations, 11 people from 9 to 62 - just returned from an exquisite week in Gold Beach at the Harrison Ridge Estate. We're VRBO veterans, and have had mostly good experiences with vacation rentals; this one is on top of the list of incredibe homes for family memories. There is no overstatement in the descriptions of this property: the grounds and the house are everything they were presented to be, and more. The owner was personally engaged in all of the booking and arrangement details, and continued to be helpful and hospitable up to and through the week we spent at the home. Her local representative was very gracious and available to us as we arrived and through the course of our stay: accessible without hovering. Though we took advantage of everything that Gold Beach and the Oregon Coast has to offer, no one wanted to leave the house! There was space for everyone to have breathing room, but the gathering spots in/around the Great Room were magnetic points of contact that gave us what we were looking for! We held the Family Council the night before we left... and there was unanimous consensus that we would love coming back to Harrison Ridge Estate! Kudos to Randi and Marna for their Five-Star handling of this incredible property!"

  • Beautiful cabin in great location.

    "The cabin is absolutely gorgeous in a beautiful creekside setting location. The decor and amenities were top notch. Location was wonderful; 20 minute drive to Kalispell, which had all the businesses you would need. The owners live in a separate section of the cabin, joined to the main cabin by a laundry room with doors on each side that lock. They were extremely nice and were very concerned that we had a terrific stay. Owners had a nice stockpile of local activity brochures. We went to Glacier National Park and rode the historic red bus across the park- awesome time & the most beautiful NP I've ever seen."

  • Ladies weekend

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Michael and Gina's condo at Emerald Bch. It was a perfect weekend getaway and in a perfect PCB location. We go to PCB at least once a year and will definitely try to stay there again. The condo was clean and supplied well. The view is priceless. Thank you!"

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.

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.

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.
