  • Clean, Quiet & Comfortable

    "My husband, son, daughter-in-law, grandson and I recently spent a delightful week at Burns Street Cottage. The cottage is just as it appears in the pictures-spacious and clean. The backyard is very pretty with perennials, a picnic table, and a nice fire pit. The owner was prompt in answering our queries, available if needed, and also prompt in returning our damage deposit. The cottage is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood within walking distance of both downtown and Depot Beach on Lake Charlevoix. We also drove about 2 miles to the McSauba recreation area where there are nature trails, dunes and a beach on Lake Michigan (no lifeguard, lightly populated). It’s also easy to bicycle to the Little Traverse Wheelway trail which runs between Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. My husband and I biked to and from Petoskey one day – 36 miles in all on an awesome trail. Among its offerings, we enjoyed Charlevoix’s wonderful library, interesting “mushroom houses”, good restaurants, and friendly people. We can definitely recommend both visiting the town and staying at this cottage."

  • Great place to stay in Charlevoix

    "This was our first time in Charelvoix, and we really enjoyed this rental home. It's location was great: easy walk to restaurants, shops, and the beach. The pluses: the bathrooms had been recently updated and were in great condition, and the two larger bedrooms were nicely appointed. Our only regret was that there were not more window coverings on the bedroom windows - it was hard to sleep in with the early summer sunrise. The property was clean and well maintained, and the owners were very helpful answering all of our questions prior to arrival. We happened to be there the weekend the nearby library was having a book fair, and we loved getting a chance to see the space. Easy trip to Petoskey or Mackinac Island for sight-seeing."

  • What a Great Place!

    "Beautiful view, and a darling guest cottage. This place looks small on the pictures, but it is like staying in an oversized hotel suite. With the separate bedroom, and a pleasant sized living area, it is a great place. Spotlessly clean, and a great view. What more could you want??"

  • Room for all

    "This property was large enough to house all 10 of our family comfortably. The water inlet is right outside the back door with a personal beach, large deck, firepit and great fishing. We loved its close proximity to downtown Traverse City and all it has to offer. The kayaks and paddle boat kept our older kids busy. The owners were extremely accommodating. Thanks to Lois and Don for a relaxing week."

Lake Travel Tips

Experience the Natural Splendor of Michigan with Lake Vacation Rentals

Michigan has been making headlines recently in economic news, which is good for you, the traveler—it means great deals on vacation homes! There's plenty of lake lodging to be found in the Great Lakes State, so if you're looking for great beaches, bountiful fishing, enormous forests, or just a quiet place to get away, you'll find it somewhere in Michigan.

Upgrade from a Hotel to a Home

One thing's for sure: for this vacation, you do not want a hotel. Once you stay one night in a vacation home, you'll never want to stay in one of those overpriced, overstuffed, and impersonal hotel rooms again. Northwest Michigan lake houses give you more of everything: more space, more privacy, more utilities, and more to remember. You get multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, plus amenities like full kitchens, so you'll never order room service again, and a garage to park your car instead of a crowded parking lot. Enjoy the space, quiet, comfort, and personal touches you can't get at a hotel.

From the Thumb to the Palm, the Mitten State Is Your Oyster

Whatever you're seeking for your next vacation, you'll find it somewhere in Michigan. If you want great shopping, good boating, fantastic beaches, and historic landmarks like lighthouses to tour, stop on by Ludington. If you want a unique stroll that you won't get anywhere else, head over to the majestic Sleeping Bear Dunes of Traverse City. For a great camping trip that combines beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets and a fun-filled day at an amusement park, head over to Muskegon, home of Michigan's Adventure and world-class camping.

A Great Vacation at the Great Lakes State

No matter what you want out of your next vacation, you'll find it in Michigan. Your dream vacation home is just a click away.
