  • Wonderful Weekend

    "We had a wonderful girls weekend getaway and staying here exceeded all our expectations! There were 5 of us that stayed here and the house was plenty spacious. The house was very clean and felt very cozy. Cindy and Rich were great hosts that left us a few welcoming items and the house was stocked with anything you might have forgotten back home! We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Perfect!

    "I am a little hesitate to write this review, I would like to be selfish and keep this little gem just available for our use :) It really was perfect, perfect, perfect. The location is great, it was very comfortable. Very clean. Amazing sun rises. Perfect beach. We had a little issue, thanks to mother nature with some bugs, but Duane helped us deal with that. Highly recommend and yes we will be back, hopefully soon Chuck and Judy, Grand Rapids MI"

  • BEAUTIFUL HOME, BEST VACATION GETAWAY!

    "Turkey Hollow is a wonderful home away from home. It is the best choice out of all the houses in South Haven by far! It has an excellent location just steps away from the beach! What I loved the most about the house was that it is surrounded by beautiful woods which gives it a very private and secluded feel, just what we were looking for. We were able to see deer and enjoy the nature trail that is part of the property! The front porch was so comfortable to have a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the variety of birds, and also in the evening to star gaze. Very Romantic!! It was just my husband and I, but there is plenty of room if you were to go with a group of friends or family. We were able to grill each night and enjoy the back porch as well, and just relax while taking in the calmness of the woods that surrounds you. Turkey Hollow is close to the downtown area as well were you can find great ice cream shops and check out the light house. I give Turkey Hollow my highest recommendation! Mark was very helpful, flexible and extremely kind to work with. Thank you for everything!"

  • First Class Property!

    "We just spent a long weekend here and loved this place! It is beautifully decorated in a modern yet rustic cabin decor. It was luxurious with first class amenities. We especially liked having WiFi. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked most of our meals there but we also made good use of the outdoor gas grill. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were well stocked with linens. The cabin was also immaculate, which is of utmost importance to picky folks like us! The location is perfect--isolated and private but a short distance to lots of fun activities, shopping, and restaurants. In short, this place is a perfect weekend getaway and we can't wait to return!"

Michigan Travel Tips

Proud Michiganders refer to their state as “The Mitten” because of its shape. Also known as The Great Lakes State, it’s no surprise that some of the best places to vacation are near Lake Michigan. Here are some of the most wonderful:

Northwest Michigan

Northwest Michigan is a great vacation spot with ample attractions for both families and couples. Check out these two wonderful towns for a relaxing getaway:

Charlevoix

Charlevoix is a beautiful lakeside town with a Cape Cod feel. Here are some of the best things to do and see here:

- Fisherman’s Island State Park has miles of trails and serene beaches.

- Castle Farms was built in 1918 and the gardens here provide a gorgeous place to simply stroll. There’s also a museum, an enchanted forest and a train for the kids to ride.

- Hit the links at Dunmaglas or Belvedere golf clubs, which have stunning lake views.

Traverse City

Traverse City is more crowded than Charlevoix because it’s very popular due to the excellent wineries, shopping and lakeside attractions. Better yet, it’s famous for its cherry production, so you’ll find a lot of treats made from the sweet fruit here. If you’re looking for excitement and relaxation, check out these hot spots:

- Get your fill of delightful locally produced wines with a tasting and tour at some excellent vineyards and wineries, including Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, Bowers Harbor Vineyard, Shady Lane Cellars and Left Foot Charley.

- Head to the only commercial organic tea farm in North America - Light of Day Organic Farm.

- Soar above the waters of Lake Michigan with a thrilling ride from Traverse Bay Parasail or a private balloon tour from Grand Traverse Balloons.

- Sample some cherries and cherry-based treats from Cherry Republic. Bring some gifts home to family and friends!

- Catch a film or opera at the historic State Theatre, which was completely renovated and reopened by famous director Michael Moore in 2007.

- Go shopping in Sutton’s Bay, a quaint little town just a short drive north.

- Check out the National Cherry Festival during the first week of July and the Traverse City Film Festival during the first week of August.

Southwest Michigan

Southwest Michigan is a popular vacation destination for other Michiganders and locals from around the Midwest. Here are the top things to do in the most well-known destinations:

Kalamazoo

This big city in south central Michigan is the home of Western Michigan University. Here are the best things to do in Kalamazoo:

- See fine art and history at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.

- Grab breakfast or lunch at popular cafe Crow’s Nest, get dinner at quirky farm-to-table spot Food Dance and don’t miss sweet treats at Confections with Convictions and Sweetwater’s Donut Mill, which are simply divine.

Saugatuck

- Bask in the sun on the pristine sand at Oval Beach

- Catch an outdoor concert and river views at Wicks Park.

- In the summer, take a jeep tour and lay out on the untouched beaches of Saugatuck Dunes State Park, which boasts 850 acres. In the winter, go cross-country skiing on the miles of trails.

- Shop in the boutiques and grab lunch on historic Butler Street.
