  • Beach House on Lake Huron

    "My husband and I and our 8 year old son spent a week there. The beach was great, perfect for young children... soft smooth sand. It was combed so there were no weeds which was very nice. The house was very clean and kitchen very well stocked. The neighbors made us feel very welcome. We had a few rain days, we enjoyed Tawas (about 20 min up the road) farmers markets in Au Gres, and a few visits to the Irish resturant, on us23. Great food! Thanks we hope to be back next summer!"

  • Perfect for a golf trip

    "We spent four nights at the Pine House for a golf trip. The property was perfect for our needs. Very clean and well kept. The neighborhood is secluded and quiet but just a few minutes from Gaylord and the golf courses we played. We were very pleased."

  • West Londo Lake Relaxation

    "ThisIsIt Cottage is your destination for fun and relaxation. The tranquil sunsets, early morning sun rise, Eagle flying overhead, Loons singing in the distant is the perfect recipe for a calm and rejuvenating vacation week. Your cottage is clean, tastefully decorated and the newly remodeled kitchen is great. Evenings were filled with sitting around the beach themed fire pit with benches, eating s'mores and enjoying the peaceful moonlit night. The Pontoon boat is wonderful for cruising, fishing and the kids really enjoyed tubing (daily!), the lake is crystal clear with enjoyable areas for swimming and great for Kayaking. Tawas is only 25 minutes away for shopping, dining and additional activities. We have rented several cottages in different locations throughout Michigan this is the best one. Thank you for the memories"

  • Big Deck and Sand Box

    "You know how you rent these places and pull up hoping it is nice, well you will be happy! The small things are easily overlooked by an outstanding view and the large Deck! The house is located on a quiet street, not directly on US23. The water was very cold for our trip, but this is an off year with the winter and summer we are having in Michigan. Inside the house there are plenty of tools in the spacious kitchen (Crockpot!, but no dishwasher). There is an upstairs full bath and a full bath in the basement by the washer and dryer. The beds are not the most comfortable, but are good enough; I would bring a blanket and pillows. The upstairs bathroom could use a fresh coat of paint on the cieling, but it is not gross. Most windows have nice screens to keep them open, and the master has a ceiling fan. The car port is a nice place for sitting when it rains, and so is the sun porch. The sun porch was also used by us to store our bikes and swim stuff while we headed out; check out Tony's Tacos in Tawas, Nates Bill of Fare in Oscoda and the beach on the point down Huron Road. We ended up eating in the sun porch because we could easily close the door to allow our child to sleep, and not lose out on fun time by having to be quite. The master has a queen and single, the next room has a queen and single, and a 'kids" room has a bunk bed set and single. Plenty of closet space and drawer space. There is a gas grill and charcoal grill; we used the gas grill, and it was prefect and large enough to fit six ears of corn and four large pieces of fish. There is a set of trees on the south side of the property for a hamock, and it is above the deck. This deck is huge! Very cool, but don't expect a beach below. Below the deck is a "dock" to walk out and dive in. A nice sturdy ladder is waiting to climb back out, but be careful, the steps are slimy and slippery; water shoes make the exit much safer and secure. The water was up to my chest most times, and you could walk across the front of the condos on the nice sandy lake bottom; I am 6'2". On the deck is a ten by ten sand box for laying out or building sand castles. It was a very nice feature, and we brought a blow-up mini pool for our daughter; luckly, because the water was too cold for her. We set the pool in the sand box, and we did not have to worry about her getting in the lake. There is a nice two person swing to have morning coffe on and relax. They need to update the pictures, theirs do not do the place justice."

When you book a luxurious lake house through VRBO, you are assured a wide selection of family settings to choose from. Whether you are on one of the Great Lakes or a smaller interior lake, kids and adults will find something to enjoy. Several of the Northeast Michigan lodging accommodations have docks right on the lake so you can bring your own boat for your water-based vacation adventure. Northeast Michigan is a nature-lover’s paradise at any time of the year.

Recreational Activities Near Northeast Michigan Lodging

If you are not located in Michigan, you may not realize that they have a sizeable hawk population at certain times of the year. The spring invites bird-watchers to visit Mackinaw City vacation cottagesto see the hawk’s migrate. If you plan your vacation to see this amazing sight, do not forget to pack the binoculars. Summertime is beach weather and your Northeast Michigan vacation rental can provide you with swimming, boating, kayaking and biking opportunities. There are many lighthouses to attract your attention as well as Historic Fort Michilimackinac near Mackinaw City. Your vacation home could include canoes, kayaks or bikes if you like.

Fall is prime time for a profusion of colorful tree viewing. Tunnels of trees can be experienced from your Northeast Michigan lake houses and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is easily accessed from Mackinaw Bridge. You could hear the bugling of an elk or the haunting call of the loon from your comfortable vacation rental. Peacefulness is in abundance during the fall as you enjoy a walk in the crisp air before settling in before a blazing fire. Have a cup of hot chocolate or a romantic glass of wine while indulging in a quiet evening at your vacation home.

Winter in Northeast Michigan means skiing. Some of the resorts are within 30 minutes of your condo such as Boyne Mountain where you can hit the slopes for a day of fun. There is also the possibility of cross country skiing or snowshoeing at Wilderness State Park or Mill Creek. If these activities do not interest you, how about a snowmobile trip from Mackinaw to Midland or a dogsled ride with a local musher and his team? Hunters have found the accommodations are perfect for a base camp.

Finding Your way to Northeast Michigan Lake Houses

The interior Northern Michigan route to get to your lake house would be Interstate 75. You could fly into Detroit and follow the highway to Grayling and further north to Mackinaw City. If you want to stay at the cities along Lake Huron such as Alpena, Presque Isle, Rogers City or Cheboygan, you could take Highway 23 which gives you great views of the countryside. There is also the chance of finding a commuter plane that can get you even closer to your Northeast Michigan vacation rental but a car is recommended so that you can see more of the sights.

Dining by Northeast Michigan Rentals

If you are close to Cheboygan or Mackinaw City, you have the chance to eat at Up North, Dining by the Bridge. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with great views of the mammoth Mackinaw Bridge. Home-cooking is their specialty and you can find fresh fish, steaks, meat loaf and BBQ ribs. The Old Pizza House in Cheboygan not only has Italian cuisine, they also offer Mexican and American cuisine as well. If you prefer to stick with chain restaurants, you will find those as well. However, you will have great kitchens to prepare your own meals if you choose to stay “home.” Many of the vacation rentals have BBQ grills on private decks so that you can cook up your fresh catch of the day.

Shopping Near Northeast Michigan Rentals

Antiques, souvenirs and apparel are all available from downtown stores or quaint boutiques throughout Northeast Michigan. The Huron Lights Museum and Gift Shop has many nautical items as well as candles and lodge items to take home with you.
