  • SOMETHING FOR ALL OF US!

    "This rental gave us more than we could have expected. First impression, the place was spotless. We've stayed many places and they are buggy and cob-webbed. Not here, it is a beautiful knotty pine getaway. The lake is quiet and clear of weedy vegetation that gets in the way of relaxing swimming. The main house is roomy and the boathouse is comfy. We all had a place to relax. My 75 year old mother in law had her own room with a bathroom, so that she could step away from the excitement when she wanted. Our 9, 8 and 5 year olds swam and fished every day. The location is remote enough to be a getaway, yet close enough to go on day trips to Mackinac Island or Sleeping Bear dunes. Great summer vacation!"

  • Great time

    "We rented for a long weekend with another couple. The house was even better than the pictures and had everything we needed. Weather was perfect, got to see the lovely fall colors of the trees from the deck. Sunrises were fantastic. We caught some bass and bluegills from shore, never did get out in the rowboat due to time constraints. Tom and Dorothy were very hospitable and had some great stories. We hope to rent this place again in September, 2014."

  • Great time!

    "The cottage is very nice and very spacious. Exactly as described by photos. We could really spread out. We had 6 in our group. It was clean and well maintained, with all the amenities of home. The ping pong table offers a chance for your competitive side to come out. The paddle boat is fun and adds to the lake experience. The owner was very helpful with all my questions and went above and beyond. When he found out the grill didn't work he brought us a new one! Wow! I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for tranquil lake side living. With many things near by. We found many restaurants, {Dianne's} was our favorite for Breakfast or Lunch. We also went to grayling to kayak, was so much fun. There are many things to do in town. We found beautiful trails where you can walk and spot Elk. We had great weather and enjoyed every minute."

  • vacation at Hubbard lake

    "We all had a great time. Lots of fun & great memories! Our grandkids, 2- 16 y rs. old & 2-12 yrs old, said this was the best vacation ever. We agree with them also. They always found something to do. Everything was very clean, neat, & very modern. The neighbors were also very pleasant. Thank you for letting us share your cottage. We hope to return next year!"

Recreational Activities Near Northeast Michigan Lodging

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.
