  • Wonderful family reunion!

    "Prior to our stay, Diane was very helpful in answering our questions quickly and accurately. We had our family reunion here and it was very special. There is ample room for larger family gatherings, as well as spaces for smaller groups to play games, chat, etc. The layout of the home is very flexible for sleeping arrangements as well. It has been recently remodeled and we found it in excellent condition. The air conditioning wasn't working for part of a day, but Diane was on that right away and it was fixed immediately. Thank you, Diane!! We also rented the pontoon boat which allowed us to swim in various parts of the lake, since the home is on a canal which allows for younger children to wade, but not to actually swim. The surrounding area is very picturesque but we didn't even have time to explore since we were busy on the water. Maybe next time... The listing was very accurate in giving us an idea of what our experience would be like, but it was even better! We are hoping to rent this again next summer and again make very special memories."

  • Just awesome!!!

    "We stayed there week of August 11 and had a blast. Perfect location if you like to be near water. The cottage was the perfect size for 2 couples and the location is the best on Round Lake. No traffic on the road and hardly anyone on the lake during the week. Sand bar is awesome and the fire at night by the water was incredible. The lake is so clean that you can see the bottom 20 feet deep. Manitou Beach Bar and Grill has great food and is a local hangout and the locals are also very friendly and talkative. It was an awesome week. We'll do it again soon."

  • They saved us!

    "The cottage I had rented for my family vacation, with family members coming in from all over the country, cancelled on us 2 weeks before our date to arrive. This wonderful Cozy Vacation Cottage made itself available to us when we were despairing of finding anything on this short notice. My family loved every minute here. During the 10 day we stayed here, every one from the youngest (3 years old) to the oldest (mid 60's) found this cottage filled our needs. We had a glorious time staying here and would highly recommend this lovely cottage for your vacation. It was accommodative and friendly, wonderful in all ways."

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.
