  • Wonderful cottage

    "For the past 12 years, we have had the privilege of staying in this comfy cottage. In 2002 we were here 2 weeks. We stayed 3 weeks in '03, 6 wks. in 04 and then the whole summer from 2005-2014 with the exception of 2012. Needless to say, we love this lake and we love this cottage. Our review comes based on this long-term rental. Positioned between pristine Mullett Lake in front and the Rails to Trails bike and walking path behind, this cottage provides the best of both worlds. The cottage with it's main floor, loft, screened porch and cement patio has all the amenities you could want - air conditioning, wireless internet, cable tv, new mattresses on both full-sized beds, 3 ceiling fans and a fully stocked kitchen. The owners have made many wonderful updates. The kitchen-living room area is all open, the 2 bedrooms are private and the bathroom is small but functional. It is very clean and well maintained. The cottage is in a quiet residential neighborhood. However, we did not vacation here to stay inside the cottage. We spent countless hours on the screened porch or in the large yard relaxing, reading or playing games. The porch provides fresh air and a lovely view of the lake. It also makes the cottage feel much larger. Sharing the lakefront with the cottage owners does not present any problems. There is a wonderful new dock with a ladder at the end for a quick dip in the lake to cool off. There is a boat hoist alongside this dock for your use and we also had 2 jet skiis tied to the mooring buoys. There is a yard swing at the water's edge as well as a fire pit. The close proximity to the bike trail is an added benefit. I walked daily on the tree-lined path seeing wildflowers and listening to birds chirp. We have become grandparents and so would like to stay home during the summer. Otherwise we would not want to give up renting here. We whole-heartedly recommend this lovely cottage."

  • Beautiful, Quiet, Peaceful, and Serene

    "We loved this cabin and our stay. We brought our 18 month old for the week, and really was just perfect. My husband took advantage of the kayaks and the peaceful lake, we read on the deck while the baby napped, and we spent our evenings grilling and enjoying the peace and quiet. This cabin is just close enough to everything - Sleeping Bear, Traverse City, all of the cute towns and lighthouses, but just far enough away to feel secluded and in nature. It's got all of the amenities needed (a washer and dryer would have been nice, but otherwise, this place has it all). We drove 13 hours for this cabin, and it was well worth it! Highly recommend this home for anyone who wants to be "one with nature" while still enjoying all the comforts of home."

  • Great spot!

    "We had a wonderful, albeit short, stay at this charming and beautifully located beach cottage. The views of Superior were fabulous and the house was very well located for taking in all there is to see on the upper peninsula. The hosts were most welcoming and the house was immaculate and incredibly cozy."

  • Love this place!

    "We have been coming for a week long visit to South haven for over ten years and always enjoy our stay, but this property has made it even more enjoyable. The views are fantastic and the location is close to both the town and beach. We plan to return again next year."

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.
