  • Wonderful week!!

    "My wife and I had a great week on the shore of Lake Huron! This home is beautiful and so are the surroundings! We enjoyed two bottles of wine that greeted us when we moved in, but the best part was the sound of the waves on the Big Lake!! We will definately return for another visit!"

  • Presque Isle Vacation

    "We had an amazing time at the North Bay Getaway. Cannot say enough about how clean and comfortable the home is. My sister and brother-in-law and my husband and I spend a week together in September (usually in the U.P.) We have always used VRBO to find a place to rent and North Bay has to be one of the best. The owner is one of the nicest people we have met on our travels. So accommodating and welcoming and full of good information about the area. We intend to return in 2015 (something we have never done before - we always move on to another area of Michigan. We just felt that there was so much more to see and do, so we will be returning."

  • Beautiful Cabin, Amazing Service, Great Vacation!

    "We rented the cabin for a week in August for a family vacation / college reunion. The first part of the week we had three couples and several young kids. The second part of the week, we had 8 guys get together for an annual reunion. The place was perfect for both groups. Everyone had a blast, there was so much to do! Fishing, hot tub, swimming, boating, roasting marshmallows, kayaking and horseshoes. There are several golf courses nearby, a zipline course, and plenty of other activities in Gladwin or West Branch. Two Scoops Ice Cream and The Camp are right up the road and offer some great, nearby food options. The inclusion of the pontoon with the rental was a great bonus, and really made the week a lot more fun. The lake is small and murky, there is no beach or swimming off the dock, but if you take the boat out to the middle its deep enough for swimming. We did quite a bit of fishing, catching mostly small stuff, but it was still a good time. The cabin itself is really the highlight. Its beautifully maintained, with plenty of room. Our group of 8 adult men were very comfortable and never felt crowded. Three bathrooms was definitely a plus! Beautiful views of the lake, a nice deck and firepit were great too. WiFi would be nice, but most of us had decent cell service so it really wasn't that big of a deal. The owners are also very responsive. When we arrived, we noticed that the firewood was almost completely gone, and that the burners in the grill had rusted through. I sent a note to the owners just to let them know, and the next day a truckload of Firewood arrived and the owner showed up with a brand new grill. Amazing service! Thanks again for a fantastic week!"

  • Fantastic Trip

    "Our stay at the Loon Lake Hideway was fantastic and was perfect for our group of 7 (4 adults, 3 children). Too many positives to list but here are a few: - Owner was great to work with and very helpful with questions - House had all the accommodations you can ask for including a pontoon boat - Location was perfect. Quiet location with small beach for the kids - The lake was crystal clear and not crowded so you can feel safe tubing / skiing with younger children. - Fishing was good but mostly limited to Large Mouth (largest was 4.8lbs), Small Mouth, Rock Bass and Pan fish. We did see a Northern Pike but never caught one. I highly recommend this location for those looking for a quiet get a way either relaxing on the beach, fishing or doing some sort of water sports. I can't comment on the local attractions since the only time we left was to get food and gas however our intentions were never to sight see."

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.

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.

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.
