  • The Perfect Place

    "We have been renting summer cottages for over 17 years and have now found the "perfect place." This large family-friendly lake home has everything--Lake Huron with a sandy bottom (no rocks or weeds), a large sandy beach, a kitchen with a lakeview where cooking is a pleasure, a big open dining room, and two family areas with large window walls catching the lake breezes. Plenty of space for a family of 12 (Grandmother, parents, teenagers, and 20+) to enjoy swimming, sunbathing, volleyball, quiet reading areas, singing around the campfire, games, fishing on Lake Huron and the many small lakes nearby, shopping, kayaking, biking, trails nearby for four-wheeling, and watching spectacular sunrises. We are hoping to return next year."

  • Great place to get away from the downstate rat race.....

    "Fun place - not too many places where you can be on a lake and not see anyone on the water. We had some great days of catch n release bass fishing. Floated the AuSable (only 15 minutes north - 3 hour float not one cabin). Sandy beaches on Lake Huron another day (about 40-45 minutes). Also had lots of BDB's (Back Deck Beers) on huge back deck. Saw a bald eagle perched on a tree overlooking the lake one day - (nice way to start the morning). Lake is clear (very few weeds) - fun for swimming and relaxing. The kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Board were a bonus. Interior of cabin is comfortable with a big kitchen and living room. Another bonus if coming from Detroit area is the drive is easy - a little less then 3 hours. I will be back."

  • Absolutely amazing weekend in a beautiful place

    "We shared a wonderful weekend with my parents at Uncle Frank's cottage. Our three kids, the two of us, and my parents were all very comfortable in the cabin. It has been furnished with everything you need for a relaxing and fun getaway. It's obvious the owners have put a lot of personal interest into the cabin- it's full of homey touches and fun fish-themed decor. The beds were comfortable and we had all we needed to cook in the kitchen. Outside, you couldn't ask for a more beautiful, secluded place to kick back. It was great that we were able to use the pontoon boat- my husband especially loved trying to tempt the fish while we were there. The roads around the house are not very busy and we enjoyed jogging in the mornings around the lake area and seeing the fall foliage. The fire pit was excellent and the wood provided worked great for building a nice fire for s'mores and stargazing. Really, it was a fabulous location and the owners were great to work with. We would gladly travel here again and recommend it to any friends who are thinking of traveling to the area."

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. Farmer’s markets abound in this area so that you can pick up fresh ingredients from local farmers.
