  • Marble Canyon

    "All amenities were as expected, other than kitchen cupboards which were very well stocked with salt/pepper, etc possibly from former occupants. The property was clean and well maintained but did need a few minor repairs, such as jet tub in lower level not working. This problem lowered my rating to Good. I would definetly recommend to others, especially avid golfers."

  • Elkhorn - Ridge Condo

    "We had a wonderful time at this condo. It was the perfect destination for our Christmas holiday in Sun Valley. The condo is nicely furnished with kitchen, dining and living area upstairs and two spacious bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor. The owner, Corine, was super responsive to any questions we had prior to our trip -as well as one that came up during our stay. We would definitely enjoy staying here again! Thank you Corine!"

    "We have rented this unit for many years and we love it there. The owner has updated the unit and it is really nice. We love it that it is on the ground floor and there is lots of things to do, for just couples or families in the area but what we love most, is that we can go out and golf anytime we want and it is all right there at our doorstep. Super unit and it is our home away from home. And the place we love eating at all the time, is the Shrimp Basket, great food, and in all just a great vacation for everyone."

  • Relaxing Long Weekend

    "I wanted to write you a note to thank you for sharing your beautiful home. What a wonderful time we had disappearing for the weekend. It was clean, well organized and really had everything we needed right there...even spices! We enjoyed waking up to the views and nature sounds. The wind and rain at night sounded so much like our noise maker we were able to turn that off and enjoy what was real. We enjoyed the nearby wineries and putting golfballs at your neighbors mountain "driving range". Next time we hope to do some hiking and hope to take some friends and their kids. Until next time, thank you for a wonderful time! We will definitely be back!!"

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.

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.
