Destination guide

Carry out a full system reboot in Shelby

With its small-town atmosphere and utterly gorgeous views, a super-cute Shelby vacation rental is the perfect place to push the reset button. Set among fruit orchards, fields, and dunes, it's just a short hop from Lake Michigan, with more than its fair share of parks, biking trails, and hiking possibilities. Not that you have to ramp up the activity levels if you don't want to. Local wineries and farm shops mean Shelby is the perfect place to kick back, gorge yourself on local produce, and take in an eyeful of that orchard blossom.

Things to do

Strike vacation gold with Silver Lake State Park

If you're in the market for an excursion, make a beeline for Silver Lake State Park. Butting up against the shores of Lake Michigan, this gorgeous state park covers nearly 3,000 acres of dunes and forests, and is the perfect place to expand your horizons (quite literally). Apart from that, the orchards and fields to the east mean you're in winery and farm shop territory, so why not treat yourself? It's not often you can enjoy stuff that was grown within a stone's throw of where you're sitting, but it's pretty standard with a Shelby vacation rental.


Enjoy the fruits of someone else's labors

Shelby really is a village for all seasons, and whatever time of year you rock up, you're in for a treat. One of the loveliest things about a Shelby vacation rental is that the village is set among acres of fruit orchards. And you know what that means. Come fall, you can feast your eyes on those gorgeous rusty colors, though the real winner is spring. You haven't lived till you've seen the Shelby fruit trees in blossom. Summers are all about balmy sunshine out on the dunes, while winters are going to get snowy. Bring your parka and boots.

Natural features

Every county needs a claim to fame

Feeling indecisive about what sort of vacation rental you're after? Well, where landscapes are concerned, a Shelby vacation rental has most bases covered. Out to the west, you've got the vastness of Lake Michigan, one of the largest of the Great Lakes. The shore is all beaches and rolling dunes, giving way to forest up in Silver Lake State Park. Head out of Shelby in the opposite direction and you're in an idyllic area of fields and orchards. In fact, Oceana County is so famous for growing asparagus, it's sometimes referred to as the "asparagus capital of the world."
