Lake Michigan Rentals

Known to be the best beach Michigan has to offer. Miles and miles of sandy shoreline, clean crisp water, and spectacular views.

Seasonal Rates:

*Peak summer rentals are weekly, and turnover days are designated in the property’s description. From time to time, certain condominiums in The Homestead may rent for less than a week in the summer (please inquire!).

Fall, winter, and spring seasons have two night minimums, and holidays have three night minimums (with exception given to our “distance” properties, which always have three night minimums). There are also certain seasons, such as early spring, and very late summer, when we rent for full weeks in homes and cottages, and three night minimums in condominiums. However, with any season, we often have “last minute” flexibility and run special rates and deals!*

Please feel free to inquire with any questions regarding seasons and rate rules.

“The home is lovely and the space is amazing.  It is beautifully decorated and well-equipped.  The lake front is well maintained and the fire pit was perfect for a fall evening. The juke box is a great addition. There is a handicap ramp access to the home and the 1st floor is handicap accessible.  I had left an item behind and LVR promptly returned it to me. We had an amazing time celebrating our birthday with 6 couples.  The house was perfect for our group.”
