    "My sister and I spent the month of October on the island and had a terrific time. Perfect time of year to explore the island and avoid all of the tourists. The weather was a little inclimate, but we made the best of it. We ended up entering and completing the Great Turtle Half Marathon, quite an accomplishment for two non-runners. The condo was the perfect location, and just the right size for the two of us. Can't wait to go back in 2015."

  • Great family vacation

    "My family of 4 (include 2 little toddlers) had a wonderful time in Sawyer! This place was like a cute little cottage and the location was excellent. When we walked in, the house was pretty neat and clean... mostly. I saw some leaves and bugs on the floor so I vacuumed the place before we really "settled" in. I'm not like a neat freak, but my toddler boys are always on the floor touching and picking up things so I just had to vacuum and make sure. The beds were not made so we made the beds ourselves. This house had everything provided... From cooking utensils, bug spray, beach towels, dish detergent and detergent for the washing machine.. you really don't need to bring anything except your own clothes and toiletries. The only thing I wish we knew was that this house doesn't have a bath tub... it only has a shower. Because we have little ones and we really needed bathtub... I would've brought our own baby tub if I knew. Other than that, we really enjoyed staying here and specially enjoyed eating dinner at the screened in porch every night. Sawyer is such a pretty little town... and the Cherry Beach was absolutely beautiful. We will definitely come back again!"

  • Beautiful Cottage and Area

    "My husband and I spent the week here and it was a thoroughly wonderful vacation. Jeanine and Dan greeted us when we arrived and then left us to enjoy the week. The cottage was very clean, updated and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed our coffee each morning on the deck or sunporch. The view from both is amazing! It was peaceful, quiet, and very relaxing. We purchased firewood locally and enjoyed the firepit in the evenings. We went out in the rowboat some and in the kayaks one evening...there's just something about being on the water that just brings peace to the soul. I would highly recommend this cottage...we will certainly be returning!"

  • Great experience

    "My wife and I went skiing with 6 friends and this house worked perfectly for us. Quick trip to the ski hills and the house was a really nice set up for our group to enjoy. We are already talking about coming back next year for a similar trip. Thanks so much"

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.

- Go shopping in Sutton’s Bay, a quaint little town just a short drive north.

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

Southwest Michigan

Southwest Michigan is a popular vacation destination for other Michiganders and locals from around the Midwest. Here are the top things to do in the most well-known destinations:

Kalamazoo

This big city in south central Michigan is the home of Western Michigan University. Here are the best things to do in Kalamazoo:

- See fine art and history at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.

- Grab breakfast or lunch at popular cafe Crow’s Nest, get dinner at quirky farm-to-table spot Food Dance and don’t miss sweet treats at Confections with Convictions and Sweetwater’s Donut Mill, which are simply divine.

Saugatuck

- Bask in the sun on the pristine sand at Oval Beach

- Catch an outdoor concert and river views at Wicks Park.

- In the summer, take a jeep tour and lay out on the untouched beaches of Saugatuck Dunes State Park, which boasts 850 acres. In the winter, go cross-country skiing on the miles of trails.

- Shop in the boutiques and grab lunch on historic Butler Street.

South Haven

- Hit the beaches and go back to nature at Van Buren State Park, the Kal Haven Trail and the historic South Haven Lighthouses.
