  • Relaxing Huge Deck!!

    "We were just there in Traverse City at your place for a week. Very relaxing vacation in Northern Michigan. Great deck for hanging out and spectacular views of the bay with clear water! The home was well stocked! Our daughter's wedding was nearby at a winery, so we had 8 of our family members there with us & had plenty of room. Close to town but away so you really could feel the escape of vacation. Close to bike trail and Suttons Bay and beautiful Ciccone and Black Star as well! Great house!"

  • Very good family cottage - excellent owners

    "I stayed here the week of July 12th - 19th with my family and four + two grandparents, so 6 people total. The cottage is spacious and when we arrived it was clean. There was more than enough room for the six of us. The view of the lake from the kitchen, front sitting area and front porch is beautiful. Both the downstairs and upstairs have quite a bit of room, although the upstairs master bath shower is somewhat small (minor inconvenience). We utilized the large upstairs "common area" quite a bit and it was nice to have the space on the one rainy day. The owner, Paul really stood out. From the time we contacted him regarding booking the cottage he was extremely helpful and communicative. We had the microwave go on the fritz when we were there and he had a brand new one delivered within hours (after telling him it was not urgent and no rush). Thanks Paul for a great week that my family truly enjoyed."

  • New,spacious and comfy.Views from decks amazing.

    "We were here to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary with our whole family and grandkids. 11 total , 5 kids ranging from 9 mo to 12 yrs. Plenty of space for children to play. The fire pit and outdoor shower was very much fun for them. All the ammenities were good, and the house never was hot with the warm weather. The beach was amazing with the sand bars and one day had great waves for everyone to enjoy. We had 6 perfect sunsets and plenty of activities to do near Coloma. The children museum in St. Joe is great for a day of fun. Cannot wait to have the experience of this area of Michigan again. Great time and wonderful memories were shared. Thank You Tina The Young's Homer Glen Il."

Michigan Travel Tips

Proud Michiganders refer to their state as “The Mitten” because of its shape. Also known as The Great Lakes State, it’s no surprise that some of the best places to vacation are near Lake Michigan. Here are some of the most wonderful:

Northwest Michigan

Northwest Michigan is a great vacation spot with ample attractions for both families and couples. Check out these two wonderful towns for a relaxing getaway:

Charlevoix

Charlevoix is a beautiful lakeside town with a Cape Cod feel. Here are some of the best things to do and see here:

- Fisherman’s Island State Park has miles of trails and serene beaches.

- Castle Farms was built in 1918 and the gardens here provide a gorgeous place to simply stroll. There’s also a museum, an enchanted forest and a train for the kids to ride.

- Hit the links at Dunmaglas or Belvedere golf clubs, which have stunning lake views.

Traverse City

Traverse City is more crowded than Charlevoix because it’s very popular due to the excellent wineries, shopping and lakeside attractions. Better yet, it’s famous for its cherry production, so you’ll find a lot of treats made from the sweet fruit here. If you’re looking for excitement and relaxation, check out these hot spots:

- Get your fill of delightful locally produced wines with a tasting and tour at some excellent vineyards and wineries, including Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, Bowers Harbor Vineyard, Shady Lane Cellars and Left Foot Charley.

- Head to the only commercial organic tea farm in North America - Light of Day Organic Farm.

- Soar above the waters of Lake Michigan with a thrilling ride from Traverse Bay Parasail or a private balloon tour from Grand Traverse Balloons.

- Sample some cherries and cherry-based treats from Cherry Republic. Bring some gifts home to family and friends!

- Catch a film or opera at the historic State Theatre, which was completely renovated and reopened by famous director Michael Moore in 2007.

- Check out the National Cherry Festival during the first week of July and the Traverse City Film Festival during the first week of August.
