  • Best Location, Great Condo!

    "My husband and I spent the Labor Day weekend here as we were in town for a family wedding. This condo was the perfect choice! It was very spacious, clean, nicely decorated and well maintained. The owner, Donna, was very kind and let us check in much earlier because we needed to get ready for the wedding rehearsal, etc. The location of the condo was ideal. We could walk to the rehearsal dinner, stroll around town and all the fun shops, and never have to worry about driving or parking! The private parking space at the back of the condo building was an added plus, especially on a busy weekend like Labor Day! Saugatuck is such a fun town and staying at this condo added to our enjoyment! Thank you Donna!"

  • A Gorgeous Weekend

    "My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed a long weekend getaway in Saugatuck. Barbara and Selim's place was mere steps away from all the shops and restaurants in Saugatuck. The condo was clean and very comfortable and the hosts very easy to contact/communicate with. We enjoyed coffee in the sunroom watching the wildlife in the backyard. We also really loved biking around the area. Beautiful views and pleasant riding. We would definitely recommend this place to others."

  • Great long weekend trip to South Haven!

    "We had a fabulous trip to South Haven last weekend and Michiana really was the perfect location--just a few blocks to the Lake, the marina and the city center. Can't wait to come back with friends and stay at Michiana again! We stayed in and cooked one night-the kitchen had everything that we needed. Really appreciated how clean the unit was upon arrival and LOVED the renovated bathroom and porch."

  • Family of 7 including a toddler

    "We just returned from our stay at Robins Nest & had a wonderful time! We found the home & yard, screened porch, all of it great! I did think we would be a little closer in walking distance to town, but never had a problem with parking to enjoy dinner or shopping. The home was great for our grandson with having space to roam & play. The fact that all beach necessities are supplied was great. The kitchen is well stocked with all tools etc. The bedrooms, especially the king beds were heavenly! Having all towels & sheets supplied was nice, as we have been to Michigan before & had to bring our own. So many special memories! Hope to return!"

Southwest Travel Tips

Southwest Michigan covers the counties of Berrien, Cass and Van Buren along the shores of Lake Michigan. This may not be the first place that springs to mind for finding sugar- sand beaches but this area does have some beautiful bays. It also produces some fine wines and fresh vegetables. During the winter, it is a fun place for skiing and snowboarding. In the summer, swap your ski poles for your golf clubs and enjoy some of the championship golf courses in the area. Those who enjoy a slower pace of life and local history will appreciate the museums and antique shops which can be browsed in this scenic area.

Stay on the Great Lakes with Southwest Michigan Vacation Rentals

If a homely place to stay with a fireplace or wood stove is what you are looking for, then consider staying in a vacation rental. Each rental home has its own individual charm and may have scenic views over the lakes or mountains of this delightful state. Rental homes have room for everyone, including the family pet and allow the whole family the space to do as they please. No fighting over one TV set or a single bathroom; choose a place to suit your needs. Larger vacation homes are ideal for sharing with friends and family, especially for holidays, family celebrations and Thanksgiving.
