  • Sno*Drift Worker

    "We rented the property while working the Sno*Drift Rally out of Atlanta, MI. and were there for four nights. The cabin was well maintained, clean, and pleasant. The drive was promptly plowed after an over-night snow of about 5 inches. The only down-side was that the property appeared as if it was someone's home that we borrowed for the weekend with drawers and closets filled with clothes and many personal items left there."

  • Prefect week on the lake!

    "Three generations of my family enjoyed this clean and nicely decorated cottage on beautiful Grand Lake. It was so quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed using the bikes and having campfires in the evening. Plenty of room for everyone and the guesthouse and fort are great for additional sleeping space. Great location to visit Alpena, Rogers City and several lighthouses. We even rented a pontoon boat on Grand Lake and the kids fished with their grandfather for the day. Overall, a great trip at a great cottage. We hope to come again! Owners are very helpful and our deposit was returned promptly which was appreciated."

  • You deserve more than 5 stars!!

    "We arrived in august and were so amazed by how beautiful the home was. The location, size of home, and equipment was great! The house is loaded with everything you could possibly need giving it a comforting feeling. the rooms are nice and big. We were a family of 7 adults and slept comfortably. The view of the lake is breathtaking and the bonfire pit was great for night time fun. The water is clean and good for swimming. The house is nicely sized and clean. The location of the house is amazing! There is total privacy since there are no homes nearby besides Bob's which we never seen. The caretaker is easy to reach and super friendly. Linda was also easy to reach and was always very sweet. As for the a/c, its true there isnt a/c, but it is never needed since there is a cool night breeze. We spent alot of our time in the sunroom since it had a breathtaking view and many couches and a table with chairs. I loved that there were many movies and puzzles to spend some quality time with the family. The only bad part was that we had to leave! But, we will definately be back next summer for some more family memories!"

  • Wonderful lakefront cottage!!

    "We just returned from our very relaxing trip to upper Michigan. This cabin is the most stocked, the cleanest, most inviting place we have ever stayed in! We were looking for quiet, peaceful, relaxing and we got it!! We rented a pontoon boat for two days and the bouys at the shared dock are very accommodating. The lake is marvelous! We actually met the president and treasurer of the Kings Point Resort and found them to be very friendly and informative. We shared several small bonfires with them. This could be a very lively place too. Would be great for families and kids. Lots of room to run and play. Basketball, volleyball, badminton, football, frisbee, boating, campfires, we even flew our kite off the back of our boat ;-)........All good clean fun. We will definitely be back soon!"

Whether you are on one of the Great Lakes or a smaller interior lake, kids and adults will find something to enjoy.

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.
