  • Very nice retreat!

    "Our family was lucky enough to find this lovely cottage while we were in the area for a relative's graduation party, making for a nice mini-vacation. We had a delightful time, and Lisa helped make our stay extra special by offering to take us for a ride on her pontoon boat on Vineyard Lake. The lake was very relaxing and the weather was perfect, and we loved watching the sunsets from the dock every night. My son and I also had a great time exploring the lake by kayak. Our kids (ages 15 and 17) loved the loft area in the cottage, and we enjoyed eating dinner at the patio table in the immaculate and beautifully landscaped back yard. The cottage was well-stocked with amenities, and there were lots of movies and games to keep busy with. Lisa was very knowledgeable and helpful about steering us to the best places and restaurants to visit in the area. She really helped make it a perfect little vacation!"

  • Unforgettable Weekend

    "I made reservations for a weekend stay at the Palmer House as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend. Needless, to say the weekend was a perfect gift for both of us! We spent an unforgettable weekend of; living, entertaining, and breathing in- this awe inspiring home, that was the designed by FLW, and built with love by the Palmer's. Words can not do justice to this "house beautiful". We truly were overwhelmed by the level of detail, originality, and beauty throughout the house, and the grounds are just as beautiful. Many thanks to the Sue and Gary for their welcoming hospitality (enjoyed your sharing a few anecdotes of Palmer's life in their Wright house), and for allowing us to spend time immersed in history. As a side note: For out of town guests, this home is a very short drive to downtown Ann Arbor- full of great restaurants, shopping and very close to Nichols Arboretum- please find time to make a trip to Zingerman's Deli- you won't be disappointed!"

  • It was great

    "We were in town for my son's wedding. Since family came from all over, it was also a mini-reunion. We found the home superb. The views of the lake are magnificent. We highly recommend."

  • Wonderful week, bedding could be improved

    "This is a lovely spot, and the hosts are genuine, helpful and personable. Plusses: great swimming, beautiful sunsets, kayak, paddleboat and canoe use, impeccably clean house, lots of outdoor seating that overlooks the lake, small private beach, fireplace indoors and firepit on the lake. The cabin itself is very charming, and the layout is great. Convenient location -- close to amenities/nearby cities and towns, but still in a scenic and quiet. Though this is not a particularly private spot - there are neighbours next-door, and the owners are just a few houses down -- it was very peaceful during the weekdays in particular. Drawbacks: Bedding -- We found the double/full bed in the main bedroom was too firm for a good / pain-free nights's sleep -- we had to use additional camping mattresses on it. The other 2 beds are singles, and are not both in the same room (though they are comfortable). The convertible futon in the living room was not a feasible sleeping spot for 2 adults -- it was quite warped from time and use. In order to get a comfortable night's sleep, my spouse and I found ourselves sleeping separately in the two single beds, which was far from ideal on a romantic getaway. The amenities could also be improved by the addition of a few more lamps in the living room, as the overhead lighting is a bit bright for a cozy evening at the cabin."

Southeast Travel Tips

Overlooking Canada With Southeast Michigan Vacation Rentals

When one speaks of southeast Michigan, you may conjure up Detroit in your mind. The home of the largest auto companies is what one associates most often with the southeast region but it is much more than a huge city. Southeast Michigan sits on the lower peninsula of the state with a high concentration of tourism on the Lake Erie coast. For those interested in traveling to a pretty part of Michigan State, there are a number of southeast Michigan vacation rentals. These rentals are spread throughout several little coastal towns, just minutes from the Canadian border.

Locations Near Southeast Michigan Lake Houses

Southeast Michigan Lake houses can be found in over 15 towns and cities of the region. Southeast Michigan is made up of Ann Arbor, Brighton, Brooklyn, Chelsea, Detroit, Hillsdale, Holly, Howell, and Jackson. Lansing, Milford, Pickney, Pleasant Lake, Reading, Round Lake, Walled Lake, Waterford, West Bloomfield, and Whitmore Lake are also considered part of the southeast region of Michigan. Any one of these cities or towns will have attractions for an enjoyable holiday, though some have more than others. For example, Ann Arbor is definitely a college town with nightlife, attractions, and entertainment for all ages. Waterford is a different type of city with less population and more focused on nature and conservation.

Southeast Michigan Cottages Along the Lake Coast

If you want to find some quaint little southeast Michigan cottages, you will need to find some of the towns along Lake Erie’s border. Monroe is one of the larger cities on the coast with Luna Pier, Temperance, Erie, Estral Beach, and Newport as a few of the other stops. From any of these stops, you can move up the coast towards Highway 3 which takes you into Canada. You can also choose a more secluded location with Whitmore Lake. Whitmore is inland of Detroit near Ann Arbor. Instead of a Great Lake, you have a smaller lake with forest land and recreational nature parks.

Parks and Museums of Southeast Michigan

In almost every city you visit in southeast Michigan, you will find some parks, museums, or other attractions to keep the entire family occupied. Chelsea is just one of the locations near southeast Michigan vacation rentals where you will find a plethora of attractions. You might start with the Purple Rose Theater or Chelsea Historical Museum before moving on to Jiffy Mix. Jiffy Mix is actually the Chelsea Milling Company but many recognize it by the brand name. During your stay, the Gerald E. Eddy Discovery Center and Waterloo Farm Museum might also be on your stop. Southeast Michigan is known for its farmers’ markets where it is possible to get fresh produce, meats, and other products to cook at your southeast Michigan cottages. Even if you are not going to buy something, they are a sight to behold on your sightseeing outings.

'"Gaining Ground in Southeast Michigan"'

We have discussed numerous locations in southeast Michigan you might enjoy visiting but getting there is something you will require knowledge about. Detroit is obviously the largest city which means you will want to fly into their airport and rent a car to traipse around southeast Michigan. It is possible to rent a few southeast Michigan lake houses if you want to see more than one area. You could start by going south along the coast on Interstate 75 or head out on Interstate 94 to go west towards Ann Arbor. If you elect to drive, 75 is your best highway to get you into the northern state from Illinois, while Interstate 94 can bring you in from the western side of the U.S. to southeast Michigan. It is fairly easy to drive around Michigan with your own vehicle, especially a motor home. Michigan, especially in the southeast, can be a haven for budget vacations in beautiful lakeside cabins. The recreation, restaurants, and other fun available make it even more exciting.
