  • Great Family Get-Away!

    "We just got back from our week stay at this cabin and we leave w/wonderful memories! The accomodations were just like the pictures show. We rented the pontoon boat too which was great for a quick cruise around the lake or more leisurely excursions with swimming and fishing gear in tow. Our two boys (6 an 10) loved the backyard for swimming, fishing (incl frogs and minnows) and campfires. Took several trips into Traverse City as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes. Drove up Old Mission Bay to see the the beautiful homes, wineries, lighthouse and antique stores. Prirates Cove was a great half day adventure for the kids too! We really appreciated the owner's quick responses from the get-go and I would recommend this cabin to family & friends!"

  • Fantastic! HIGHLY recommend this nature haven.

    "Booking was very easy through VRBO and paypal. Tim was very quick to respond. The driving directions provided by Tim were fantastic….use those. It was fun to drive through the long, winding, tree lined road to the house. I couldn't get the door open….my husband had to do it each time :) The house was spotless. There were some supplies left for us~ pump soap, toilet paper, paper towels, bar soap. We slept in the 2 bigger beds. We used the daybeds to lay on during the day. We only used the shower/bath during the week. The water pressure was good and stayed hot for 3 quick showers in a row…the 4th was iffy. :) We didn't cook while there….but the fridge and microwave worked well. We never turned the tv on. The internet connection worked at all times, except during a thunderstorm. We used the washer a few times during the week ….had to wash the towels we brought from home and some random clothes. it worked well. We used the dryer a little bit more due to drying our wet swimming stuff. We swam off the pier on a few occasions and did end up with the lake itch that Tim informs you about. The kids were 100% w/o any red bumps within 6 hours of getting out of the water. They were just super itchy for those hours. We always got out of the water and washed off in the tub with soap. If they were super itchy, we used benadryl cream. My husband got it the worst and is at home with at least 10 bumps on his legs still. The water was super clean. Only saw fish at night and they were tiny. The windows are temperamental at moments. I learned which ones would fall off of their track when winding back in. I had hubby help push those closed from outside daily. Only a few windows have window treatments. It took me a minute to get used to it at night. The fire pit and patio were perfect at night. We never used the heat or indoor fireplace. We HIGHLY recommend staying here and hope to stay here again in the future. The house was perfect for us. I know your family will love it as much as we did. Family of 5. 3-39 years old 2 dogs. puppy and old guy"

  • Huge Lake and Great Location

    "The lake is nearly 2000 acres and had no other boating traffic (Even on the Weekend!). We enjoyed the walk out shoreline and having the state park close by we were able to use the sandy beach with our small children. The cottage was in close proximity to the sand dunes and downtown Travers City which was nice to go to for shopping and fine dinning."

  • Bay Park Condo - Traverse City, Michigan

    "We really enjoyed this condo, was near downtown and walking distance to restaurants and shops, across from bay & beaches. The unit was very nicely furnished and the amenities were by far the best for any VRBO units we have rented recently. Often places have minimal supplies and low quality dishes etc. This condo clearly shows owner pride. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our morning coffee and evening cocktails on the balconies. Lovely area and weather was pleasant. Unit does involve stairs to second floor and to upstairs bedrooms, but was no problem for us. Very friendly people at this complex."

Traverse City Travel Tips

Experience a Rejuvenating Return to Nature at Traverse City Vacation Rentals

Traverse City is the definitive "Up North" experience for Michigan! If you want beaches, forest trails, great shopping, and fantastic restaurants, they're all within your reach. There's lots of Traverse City lodging available for your vacation. With just the click of a button, you could be spending your next summer getaway at one of the many Northwest Michigan lake houses available in Traverse City.

Redefine Comfort with a Traverse City Vacation Home

Staying at tacky, overpriced hotels while vacationing is a bad habit that needs to be stopped immediately. You'll understand why the minute you step foot in a vacation home. Instead of cramped, homes are spacious and expansive, giving you and your family all the room you need to stretch out. Instead of waiting for your turn to use the shower, you can enjoy multiple bathrooms, in addition to multiple bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, and whatever your heart desires. Instead of eating whatever the continental breakfast or nearby drive-thru has to offer, cook your own meals from the comfort of your very own kitchen. And instead of retreating to the balcony—if your hotel even has one—you could enjoy a backyard with a lake.

The Best of Northern Michigan

Traverse City strikes the perfect balance between large town and quiet summer getaway. There's plenty to do here including hiking though the beautiful forests, boating on Lake Michigan, or enjoying any of the multiple beaches in the area. Go on an adventurous stroll through the rolling Sleeping Bear Dunes, check out some local brews at a microbrewery, and enjoy all the fine dining and shopping this fantastic town has to offer.
