  • North One

    "This condo was absolutely fabulous! It was our second year back to this complex. The management company is friendly and efficient, as well as very accessible. The housekeeping staff does an impeccable job, and it's the most peaceful, perfectly situated place to stay. Can't wait to get back next year!"

  • Amazing stay for Family Reunion

    "My family who lives out in the Western US came to Michigan for a family reunion. Many had not been to this area before the reunion, but I told them all that anything outdoors we would want to do, we could do in Michigan, and so they came. In the end we had 21 people from four siblings families and my parents. We needed a place that could hold all of us. After looking into several properties, I discovered Walled Lake Lodge. The owners have been wonderful to work with over the past year to plan this. They were very accommodating with our arrival and use of their property. I personally viewed a number of potential places, and it was clear after visiting, that this was the right place for our reunion. Here is why. 1. It is spacious. There are so many gathering areas-the main great room, the screened porch, the loft area, the second family room/game room, and then of course the outdoor property. We were able to all be together but in different pockets doing different things. But when we wanted to all play a game, or eat or talk, we could do so. That was a big plus to us. 2. It is isolated. It takes a bit to get there and to get out, but we found everything we would want to do, we could do there--hiking, biking, floating on the river, swimming in the lake, fishing, boating. We could do it all there. And, there were no neighbors to hear or to annoy but the animals (the coyotes were pretty active and loud one night, and the eagle stared at us from his tree throughout the week). We could sing around our campfire without bothering anyone and without being bothered. 3. The grounds and lake are awesome. The water was warm enough to float or swim in, and the lake was small enough and calm enough to paddle all over but large enough to use and enjoy. We rented a jet ski for the week, and it was perfect to have to use at the lake. The grounds are flat to and from the property which made it easy for small children and older folks with knee issues. We set up badminton/volleyball and ladder golf and played around in the yard. We loved sitting on the dock, fishing from the dock, and chatting on the dock. The water is so clear and beautiful. 4. The property is set up to really allow you to relax and have fun. The owners have really gone out of their way to make the place nice and accommodating with extras that are wonderful-kitchen appliances, space, things to use and enjoy, and there is a clear sense that they love their place and want you to love it. And we did!"

  • A Wonderful Week

    "Our family of 4 adults and 1 11yr. old girl had a wonderful visit at the Lily Pad. The cottage itself is a lovely and well kept home with all the amenities including plenty of storage space which is unusual in most cottages. We lucked out with a beautiful weather week in the mid to high 70's and blue skies. We enjoyed kayaking and our attempts at fishing (we'll get them next time!). We visited Petoskey, Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island, and Cheboygan where we ate at a delicious restaurant, Pier 33 on the river. The meal at Legs Inn in Cross Village was great as well. The cottage location is so close to so many places and activities that I still have a list of things we did not have time to do or visit. Now, if we could just get rid of those pesky mosquitoes after sunset, we would know we were close to heaven."

  • AWESOME LAKE FRONT HOUSE WITH GREAT NEIGHBORS AND ALL THE AMMENITIES NEEDED FOR A GREAT FISHING TRIP

    "The owner was great to work with on a super short notice, not to mention LABOR DAY WEEKEND. The house and property were perfect for a fishing trip with 10 friends. Easy commute to the Indian River and the Inn Between Bar and Grill. We even made friends with the neighbor and had a great time with a late night Bon fire at his house. The house has everything you need and a great sun porch for euchre, poker, etc. I have a 150 hp outboard and had no problem pulling up to the dock. We also rented a pontoon close by and had plenty of room to dock that as well. I highly recommend this house and will definitely rent again from Beverly."

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.
