  • We Loved It!

    "We stayed at this great rental at the end of July. Our family of four enjoyed the peace and quiet of the serene setting. Sitting out on the deck and enjoying the beauty of the lake was a highlight for the adults. The kids loved having their own space in the basement! The owners were very accommodating, which was so appreciated. From giving us dining recommendations to working with special requests that we had, they always worked with us to find answers and solutions to our questions. If we ever have the occasion to spend time in Western Michigan again, we will certainly contact Kay and Roy again!"

  • Awesome Summer Retreat!

    "We have rented lake houses for many years in different states and this was by far one of our favorites. Beautiful home inside and well maintained. Very clean. We had everything we needed, except for a third bedroom fan. Kitchen very well stocked (I do a lot of cooking and baking even on vacation). The kayaks and canoe were a plus since we didn't take a boat. Huge yard for outdoor games. Lots of outdoor seating. Fire pit was nice. Lots to do in that area within 20-30 minutes. Wineries, little shops... Personally we were content hanging out at the lake. We had 3 of our kids all in their 20's who enjoyed themselves as well. We would definitely recommend to others and plan to go back. Diana was available to answer questions and make recommendations prior to our trip. Pizza from Dick's Pour House was awesome! The kids complained about not being able to jump off the pier because it was too shallow, but the water was nice. I had a difficult time relaxing for the first few days because I attracted way too many spiders that kept crawling on me. Very isolated, woodsy area, and right on the water. We had an awesome vacation!"

  • Great Stay in Downtown Grand Haven

    "The rental unit is immaculately kept, decorated nicely in a modern theme and ideally located in downtown Grand Haven. It was a great property and if we are fortunate enough to stay in Grand Haven again, we will certainly repeat."

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.
