Recent Michigan reviews

  • Great Lake Michigan view

    "We could not have asked for a better Lake Michigan experience. Wonderful view of the lake from the deck and just a short walk to the beach from a quiet, clean cottage. The owner could not have been more accommodating and obviously takes pride in the property. We walked for miles on the beach (even saw a couple of bald eagles there) and used our canoe on nearby Stony Lake and Silver Lake. Prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen or choose one of the restaurants close by- you can't go wrong here. We will return!"

  • Spotless Home

    "Several of my old college friends and I stayed at this property for a mini-reunion of sorts: golf at local clubs, a college football game, and certainly daily gatherings with lots of good food, drink and stories. The home is immaculate and served our purposes well. Despite cooler weather (this was a late September-early October rental) we were able to use the pool, which also was spotless. It has a very pleasant owner, and our communications with her were always very cordial. This home is incredibly well maintained, and it has a very fine kitchen. The gas grill is also modern. I can recommend this property and would stay here again."

  • Fantastic week

    "Spent a week at "Always" with friends and family. Home had everything we needed and was very accommodating for all four of the young children. Greatly enjoyed the pontoon, paddle boat, and kayaks! All of the fishershermen (experienced and novice) were successful in landing a few nice fish. Highly recommend taking the kayaks to Mud Lake and casting a worm into the lily pads. When not enjoying Lake Ann we ventured into Traverse City, Glen Arbor, Frankfort and Sleeping Bear dunes. The location was perfect! Thank you Jeff for making the process easy and inviting."

  • Great vacation home!

    "The house had everything that we needed for our family of 11 ( 8 adults and 3 children) with plenty of room to spread out. The outdoor shower was wonderful! The golf cart made it easy to get the provided beach chairs and toys to the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and not crowded. We cooked our meals in the well equipped kitchen (there was even an extra freezer with an ice maker!) It was fun exploring Grand Beach in the golf cart! We'll be back!"

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.

Saugatuck

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