  • PERFECT STAY!

    "Having rented vacation properties for the past couple years, this property is without a doubt the nicest one we have stayed at. The house is in a nice residential neighborhood, and within walking distance of the beach. The house was impeccably spotless and beautifully decorated- you can truly tell that the owners put a lot of effort into making their guests feel at home! All of the rooms were large and spacious- this house surpasses it's description. Within the neighborhood is a large pool, as well as a hot tub and many poolside chairs. Overall, we loved the house, it could not have been better maintained and we will definitely stay here again! I hope you are fortunate enough to have the same experience that we did! :)"

  • Roomy, beautiful and relaxing!

    "It was mother's day 2014 and we wanted a quiet and cozy place to stay (my wife, 3 kids and my parents) - we got more than we thought we would with regard to this cabin and the abundant wildlife and beautiful views! The description of the cabin was accurate regarding the location, layout, and the amenities. It was very clean and well-maintained, and the owners provided excellent customer service from the time we called to inquire about it initially, to the time we had to check out! I would highly recommend this property to my family and friends, and would choose it again over any hotel or lodge. The price is unbeatable for what you get in return! Very easy and BEAUTIFUL drives to nearby attractions and SO MUCH BEAUTY surrounding the place and extremely peaceful and quiet! It was just perfect!"

  • Very well appointed boathouse

    "This is a very nice family unit, Allison is great we had a small issue and it was taken care of immediately. She also rents boats which is great you can get it all done at once. It was hot this week but looking over the deck at the fish swimming below makes you feel cooler. Gas grille for cooking out this unit has it all in a very nice area of the thousand islands. Will definitely stay here 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.

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.

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.
