All our homes are privately owned Vacation Rentals.  A vacation rental is typically cheaper with more privacy than a Bed & Breakfast (B&B) and has many more amenities than hotel or motel accommodations.  All our homes have private waterfrontage on a Michigan lake and most include a pontoon boat,  kayaks, paddle boats, boat dock and pool table.  You will either have a sandy beach or water trampoline to enjoy your summer vacation.  They are all also conveniently located only a half days drive to the Northeast of Chicago and to the Northwest of Detroit. We have availability throughout the winter and spring. Summer is booking up quickly so contact us soon.

Proudly serving the communities of Traverse City, Benzie County, Grand Traverse County, Clare County, Emmet County, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Honor, Frankfort, Arcadia and Elberta.
