  • Lovely Home - Great Property Management

    "My family of 7 adults/3 dogs stayed here for a relative's wedding last year and had a wonderful time. We were a high maintenance group (we needed to rent a few extra days and they allowed us to bring 3 dogs) but the owners were so accommodating. We really appreciated the flexibility. It's an excellent location if you are looking for peace and quiet - just a quick walk to catch the sun set over Lake Michigan and for us, a quick drive/bike ride right around the corner to our relative's house. The house itself has a bright open concept, is sparkling clean and everything functioned as expected (I think it has central air conditioning but we didn't need it when we were there in mid-August). We had plenty of living space and bathrooms for all of us to get ready for the wedding. And we loved that we could help ourselves to the mint in the backyard for our mojitos! We wouldn't hesitate for a second to consider this house again for another stay."

  • Great location and Super Clean beautiful house!

    "My family and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. I usually rent two properties a year and this one was the cleanest I have ever stayed at. It has everything you would need plus a lot more. Perfect location for Michigan Adventures and Silver Lake Sand dunes and the beach is so close. The owners are very nice to deal with and the surrounding area is very relaxing."

  • A Little Slice of Heaven

    "My family and I spent a wonderfully relaxing week at this Grand Haven home. The house has a non traditional layout but more than enough room for our family of four. There was a whole basement suite we did not even use. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. We spent most of our time in the backyard which was fantastic - no need to go anywhere as it offered everything! The pool was amazing and a big hit (esp. with our two teen kids) since the weather was very hot during our stay. The house is in a lovely neighborhood and a 2 min walk to the town where there are plenty of choice for dinner and/or drinks. We enjoyed walking along the boardwalk and out to the lighthouse and beach. Such a lovely location with everything you need to kick back and relax. Will definitely recommend to friends and would love to come back another time too!"

West Central Travel Tips

Visiting Michigan’s West Central Region

West Central Michigan covers the counties of Lake, Mecosta, Newaygo, Mason and Osceola. Its major destinations are Grand Rapids and Grand Haven vacation rentals, along with Spring Lake. To get here, visitors may find Gerald R. Ford Airport, near Grand Rapids, a convenient entry point. US Highway 31 runs along the coast of West Central Michigan, with US Highway 10 connecting the region to Interstate 75.

The weather here ranges from very warm, humid summers to very cold, snowy, winters. The weather is affected by nearby Lake Michigan, pushing the temperatures up in summer and down in winter. This area is perfect for relaxing family holidays with much to do and see, whether it is the sun and sand or the deep snow and great skiing.

Fun in the Sun and Sand or Snow

Choosing a lakeside home in West Central Michigan will be perfect for fishing. Grand Haven is known as the most chartered boat port on Lake Michigan, with varieties of salmon, trout, perch and bass. Visitors will find lots of fishing options, from the shore of the lake, on a boat or heading inland to one of the rivers around the area.

Of course, for families, West Central Michigan lodging near the lake makes a perfect environment for children. Long, hot summer days can be spent along the shoreline, enjoying the water and playing in the sand. Pick up a kite at Mackinaw Kites and Toys and the children can spend hours flying their kites along the sandy beaches.

Winters here bring the perfect conditions for sports such as cross-country skiing, with over 3,000 miles of trails to explore. There are green, blue and black diamond runs for those who love downhill skiing. If snowmobiling is your preferred activity, you will find a West Central Michigan vacation home is close to over 30,000 miles of undeveloped trails in the state and federal forests.

What Adventures Await near West Central Michigan Vacation Rentals

While the beaches are wonderful and visitors may be tempted to spend each and every day just enjoying the lake, there is a variety of other excursions and trips around the region. The Tri-Cities Historical Museum has Native American and early settler exhibits. Here, visitors can discover more about early medicine, agriculture, maritime activities, and the life of a lumberjack. Best of all, it is free! A great day for children is a day at Imagination Station with its large outdoor play area. For an activity day, head to Yogi Bears Fun Zone for miniature golf, bumper boats and miniature golf. Zoos are always popular with children and a visit to the 110-acre John Ball Zoological Garden is worth a visit to see over 1,000 different animals.

One "not to be missed" trips should be the Gerald R. Ford Museum. The children may not be enthusiastic but once they arrive, they will change their minds. Here visitors can walk through the Oval Office, attend a White House State Dinner and even see the actual burglar tools used during the Watergate scandal! It is truly a living history day.

West Central Michigan has many miles of abandoned railroad tracks which have now been made into bike trails. The rides take visitors through beautiful woodland, wetlands, across rivers and around Lake Michigan. Even non-cyclists will enjoy biking in such beautiful surroundings and it is a great activity for families.

Why Choose West Central Michigan Lake Houses?

There are many reasons why visitors choose to rent a home here rather than opting for other types of accommodation. Two of the main ones are freedom and space. These properties offer the freedom to come and go as you please and the space to relax after returning from a great day of adventures. Each home is well-equipped with everything necessary for a great home environment. Many go that little bit further and provide renters with wonderful additional luxuries, such as DVDs, games systems and BBQs. Visitors may find their vacation home is so comfortable, they will not want to leave it!
