  • West Londo Lake Relaxation

    "ThisIsIt Cottage is your destination for fun and relaxation. The tranquil sunsets, early morning sun rise, Eagle flying overhead, Loons singing in the distant is the perfect recipe for a calm and rejuvenating vacation week. Your cottage is clean, tastefully decorated and the newly remodeled kitchen is great. Evenings were filled with sitting around the beach themed fire pit with benches, eating s'mores and enjoying the peaceful moonlit night. The Pontoon boat is wonderful for cruising, fishing and the kids really enjoyed tubing (daily!), the lake is crystal clear with enjoyable areas for swimming and great for Kayaking. Tawas is only 25 minutes away for shopping, dining and additional activities. We have rented several cottages in different locations throughout Michigan this is the best one. Thank you for the memories"

  • Absolutely lovely!

    "My family and I stayed at this cabin for 2 nights and we wanted so badly to stay a little longer... From the beginning I can say the pictures don't make justice to this place... The cabin is very spacious, the rustic decor suits perfectly and the homeliness and friendliness of the accommodation are perfect. We brought our dogs, who enjoyed running around outside, while we spent time around the fire pit. This cabin in the woods was exactly the escape we were looking for and can't wait to go back. Thank you!!!"

  • 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."

  • Great Family Vacation Home

    "This vacation rental was perfect for our 3 generation family. We had no problem finding the rental, and we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations even though the listing description and photos accurately reflected the appearance of the property. The layout of the house fit our needs perfectly and worked well for us regardless of the weather. The property was very clean, well maintained, and stocked with everything we needed and more. The location is great for forays to Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City, and even Petoskey. There are some outstanding golf courses and restaurants around, and we even rented a pontoon boat at a Mullett Lake marina for a cruise around the lake one day. The shore at the rental is a bit rocky, but if you swim off the end of the dock, there is no problem. Water shoes can make it even better. We would definitely recommend this rental for anyone wanting to enjoy some pure "Up North" Michigan."

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.
