  • Loved it!!!

    "We just spent a week at your beautiful cottage and it was everything that we hoped for, and more. The view is AMAZING!! When we walked into the cottage, we were greeted by the spectacular view which took our collective breath away, It was so lovely. The house was clean, nicely decorated, and the kitchen was fabulous. We appreciated all of the "toys" for the water, the games, the movies, and the pool table. The memories of the view will sustain us throughout the winter. We'll be back. Thank you so much."

  • Wonderful Cottage and weekend away!!

    "Our visit got off to a little bit of a late start as there was a small plumbing issue (toilet just needed a new seal) that the maintenance person was already working on when we arrived. Once it was fixed and we were able to check in, we had a really great long weekend. We did not bring our favorite pillows and ended up buying pillows nearby but that's a personal preference, I think. We weren't sure which grill to use and the same maintenance person was there at a different unit and was extremely nice, friendly and helpful to us. We really loved the screened in porch and fire pit area. Wifi was helpful too, we looked up the nearby attractions and activities on our laptop. We visited Mackinac Island, the U.P. and some of the nearby parks, including the Dark Sky park and sunset park. We got some awesome sunset pictures on our last night there. It was a very peaceful and relaxing weekend - just what we were looking for!! The property was clean and looks exactly like the pictures. The management and maintenance person were both helpful and we would definitely recommend staying here. I also really liked that you do not have to rent the cottages for an entire week at a time, as we like to take long weekends away instead of one big trip."

  • Great Property, Great Hosts

    "We (8 of us) had a great time at John and Marsha's property. The house was exactly as advertised on the site. Our girls had a great time playing in the creek that runs next to the house. We grilled on one of the two outdoor grills nightly, and even got to pick some fresh herbs from Marsha's garden for a couple of meals. The sunsets are amazing to see from the beach. We brought our boat and enjoyed it everyday. The water is crystal clear with a nice sandy bottom that adds to the fun. We did enjoy the new fire pit that John had recently installed on a couple of occasions. I would have no reservations about recommending this property to any family or friends as I am sure they would enjoy it as much as we did."

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.
