  • Our Little Home Away From Home Secret!

    "We had a wonderful time! We will definitely be returning for many vacations and for years to come! We still have a dollar to find and a dollar to hide! Curious to know if anyone found our dollar or the one we couldn't find! Enjoy this little piece heaven on earth!"

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "We stayed here for a week with another family and our babies. We had a wonderful time exploring the raspberry-lined path to the river, going for walks on the trail nearby, and making use of the many places inside the cottage and on the large deck to eat and relax. We really enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen to make meals together. Sandie and Bill were wonderful hosts and brought us arugula and kale from their garden. Their cottage was beautiful inside- one of a kind with creative decor. We appreciated the privacy from the surrounding area. We enjoyed going for day trips to Harbour Springs and Petosky. Overall, we had a wonderful time in the comfortable and well-stocked cottage and hope to return to the area soon for another relaxing vacation."

  • Great!

    "We stayed at Acorn Cottage for 10 days. The minute you walk in you feel at home with the up north décor and the homey feel. The view of the lake is wonderful. We were cozy in front of the fireplace. Great distance for seeing the historical sights of Mackinaw. Close to everything you need."

  • Peaceful and Relaxing

    "First we would like to Thank Doug and Adle for making us feel at home. My husband and I help care for our parents and work 40hrs a week. So needless to say, we needed some quiet time. We stayed at Doug and Adle's cottage the last week of June. Arriving on a Sunday, We pretty much had Long Lake to ourself until Friday when people started to arrive for the weekend. The Cabin is small and quaint. Very Clean. The water front is beautiful. We enjoyed grilling and the fire pit. But the highlight of our trip was the Pontoon Boat floating on the water and just relaxing. My husband caught Pike, Walleye and Small mouth Bass. If your looking for a nice place to get way we would Highly recommend staying at Doug and Adle's."

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

The Huron Lights Museum and Gift Shop has many nautical items as well as candles and lodge items to take home with you.
