  • Perfect 20th Anniversary Trip

    "We stayed an entire week in this beautiful cabin in the UP of Michigan. The cabin was well equipped with everything to make your stay easy and enjoyable. Kitchen is well stocked, gas grill is ready and waiting, the pellet stove is up for its important job and the decor makes you feel right at home. Mary Jean answered our emails in a timely manner and even though our deposit checks "went missing", she was very patient and understanding. There was a folder with all the pertinent info one could need on the area "goings on". We used a blue pamphlet to make sure to hit all the big sights and many waterfalls in the area (we always had this with us). The day trips looking for waterfall after waterfall were the best. This area is a GREAT place to Geocache. I think we found 28 caches on this trip. The most ever in such a short amount of time (we usually have our teens with us and it's usually them actually locating the caches - it's sooo much fun being the 'finder' and not the 'secretary' documenting the finds). The hot tub is great and always makes returning after a long day knowing that's waiting. We didn't have enough time to enjoy the lake right there at the cabin. Our day trips kept us busy and when we were at the cabin, the chilly air and winds kept us inside by the stove. There's so much left to do up there and I think a 2 week visit would be ideal. We want to return again ASAP and thinking about leaving the teens at home once again. The cell service is nil but you know that from the get go since Mary Jean made sure to inform us of that ahead of time. The cabin does have WI-Fi and when we were at the cabin, my husband was able to keep in contact with other family members who had iPhones. There's too much more to tell you and you will need to take my word for it when I say this is the perfect cabin to stay at. Thank you Ed and Mary Jean for sharing your family home with us. We'd love to return next year."

  • Beautiful log home and perfect location

    "For our first visit to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, we wanted both a central location for sightseeing and a home on Lake Superior. This home was that and even more. It was close to Picture Rocks, Munising restaurants and Marquette. If you love beautiful scenery, exploring, high end accommodations and the tranquility of the lake then this home is all you could possibly want! We highly recommend Log Home on the Lake for it's cleanliness and attention to quality as well a the helpfulness of the owners Carolyn and Randy."

  • Wildernest Chalet

    "Our vacation to the Wildernest was fabulous. The place was very neat and clean. The pictures do not due it justice. The views from the living room are beautiful. Our kids really enjoyed playing outside, besides the great location to the ski hills. The owner was great at making sure everything was perfect for our stay. We stayed in the upper unit with another family; the layout was perfect, plenty of space. What a nice get away. We will be back. Thank you!"

  • Private, beautiful, perfect!

    "We recently stayed at the cabin during the weekend of our wedding. It couldn't have been more special. The night before our wedding, we enjoyed a beautiful Northern Lights display that was the perfect kick-off to the weekend. The stars here are incredible! Best of all, it is less than 10 minutes to Calumet, so convenience and privacy blend just right. It is basically a studio, with the bedroom in the kitchen, so we would highly recommend for a couple. Any more than that and it would get tight. The owners provided a grill and all necessary amenities to make our stay perfect! I already miss waking up and seeing the lake early in the morning."

Mackinac Island Travel Tips

Enjoy the Horses by Reserving Mackinac Island Vacation Rentals

If you love horses, then Mackinac Island is the place for you. Mackinac Island's culture is centered on the breeding of horses and because of this, there are horse carriages available throughout the year so you can go for a ride and enjoy the amazing scenery at a slow pace. Horse-taxis are available to take you wherever you need to go just by going by the taxi office on Main Street and calling for one. What a quaint way to get around town—you'll feel like you've been transported to the 19th century!

Nature Abounds at Mackinac Island

To truly enjoy your vacation to Mackinac Island, lodging can be found in many places including hotels, but you won't really understand the beautiful nature of Mackinac Island by staying in a cold, cookie-cutter hotel room. Instead, look into renting out a Mackinac Island vacation home. These homes are wonderful because they are owned by real people who have added their personal touch to the décor and so they have that "lived-in" feel to them. They are also much roomier than a one-room hotel room, and include full kitchens, multiple bedrooms, and a large living area.

Amazing Area You Don't Want to Miss

Mackinac Island is truly a unique area. In addition to the horse-drawn taxis, you'll also find bicycle-drawn taxis to take you around town. A can't-miss is the Wings of Mackinac Butterfly Conservatory where you can see butterflies as they fly around lush plants. Butterflies are a rare sight in real life, but here, they are plentiful and are beautiful to see. Also found in the area are golfing, hiking, and the Stuart House Museum. And at the end of a wonderful, but exhausting, day, you can relax in one of the many Michigan Upper Peninsula lake houses that you have chosen to stay in.
