  • Amazing Cabin with an Amazing Trip

    "What an amazing place! The cabin was so beautiful and the beach was wonderful and warm. The cabin was close enough to the water to make it an easy trip if we forgot something in the house and the dock sections in the water were perfect for laying out and relaxing while the kids were in the water swimming and having a great time. During the day, my family spent the entire time in the water while nights were spent on the beach by the campfire. There was also a shed with so many great and fun water toys that all the kids loved! Overall this was a very fun and relaxed trip, and my whole family decided we would definitaly go back again!"

  • 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"

Northwest Travel Tips

Northwest Michigan is a Great Family Destination

Summertime in northwest Michigan invites lots of outdoor explorations. It's a great destination for families and those that enjoy nature and the outdoors. The lakes are a major attraction. Boating, sailing and fishing make for great family fun times. You can find large rental homes at affordable prices and have the flexibility and convenience of enjoying your vacation on your own time. If looking for somewhere to go for just the two of you, the lakes hold an air of romance. With the fall foliage, northwest Michigan is a wonderful destination to celebrate anniversaries or just enjoy a romantic weekend away.

Enjoy Outdoor Explorations in Northwest Michigan

Northwest Michigan lake houses located on the lake shore have the convenience of being close to many recreation facilities. If you don't have your own boat, there are many rental companies that you can hire one from. Kayaks are also available and a great way to explore the lake shores. Fishing tackle shops can be found in abundance and in season, you could even enter a fishing competition and see if you can land the "big one." There are many hiking trails, mountain biking trails and horse riding trails that can be explored independently or with a guide. Trails through the state forests provide an opportunity to watch birds and wildlife along the way. There are picnic sites and special nature reserves that are interesting to visit. The Loda Lake Wildflower Sanctuary, for example, consists of a small lake and wooded area with marked trails. As you walk along, you can see more than 150 different plant and tree species.

Winter Snow at Northwest Michigan Vacation Rentals

In the winter months, much of the area is blanketed with snow. Many of the trails that you hiked and cycled in the summertime become cross country ski routes through the forests. There are literally miles of trails through various preserves ranging in difficulty from beginner to more advanced. Many areas also have trails for snowshoeing and routes for snowmobiling. One of the most impressive trails is the 88-mile route between Cadillac and Belmont. The majority of the trail runs through the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park over varying terrain and is a challenging run. The town of Gaylord is well-known for its Olympic quality ski runs. Dog sledding is another popular pastime and commercial tours can be booked through local resorts.

Farm Delights at Northwest Michigan Lodging

There are large agricultural communities in Northwest Michigan. Orchards, berry farms, mills and tree farms dot the landscape and invite visitors to get a glimpse of what farm life is all about. Many farms have fruit-picking available in season and others have guided tours. Fresh produce markets are a regular occasion in most towns and there are a number of festivals and events throughout the year. The area is also home to a great number of quaint antique shops. Whether you're collecting or just browsing, searching out the artifacts is fun.

Getting to and Around Northwest Michigan

The main airport in Northwest Michigan is in Traverse City and national flights generally route via Chicago or Detroit. Pellston Regional Airport provides access to the far northern parts of Michigan. Public transport systems operate with buses and there is fairly extensive network of routes connecting the various towns and resort areas. As an alternative, you can hire a car and explore the region at your own pace. There are many scenic byways and back roads if you want to meander along at a leisurely pace.
