It’s that time of the year, we’re all sitting by the fire under blankets and catching up on quality reconnection with our friends and love ones now that the cold weather is here to stay. We start experimenting with pumpkin desserts and warm drinks. We catch up on the movies by the fireplace and connecting the rest of the puzzle pieces together as we laugh about our summer memories. What better way to spend the holidays at a vacation rental? You tend to surround yourself with lots of people, lots of cooking, and we all need space to stretch out and really relax. Can you do that at your home? We have rounded up the top 5 places to rent in Michigan for your next holiday getaway.
Northwoods Cabin, Wellston- This PET FRIENDLY CABIN is in the heart of the Manistee National Forest and is part of a resort consisting of 10 cabins ranging from 1-4 bedrooms. Some would argue that as much as you love your company, you don’t want to spend every waking moment with them, and you don’t have to here. This resort is close to the Big M for cross-country skiing and close to the backwaters. You can taste test the multiple wineries in the area and even take a scenic airplane ride. This cabin is situated right in the middle of great HUNTING grounds! If it gets too nasty out, select this time to watch a National Lampoon movie, because face it, they are always on during the holiday season.
Mountain View Lodge, Silver City– This is a little piece of heaven in the Western U.P. and you can see why once you get there. With Porcupine Mountain just 3 miles away, there is plenty of adventure here on the 85 miles of trails. Between lighthouse tours, snowshoeing, skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling, there isn’t much you can’t do. Prepare for a spectacular show only nature can provide you if you choose to stay during a northern lights performance. This show can prove to you that humans are just a tiny spectacle of life compared to mother nature. You’re in luck this year! The lodge is giving out FREE SKIING FOR THE WINTER SEASON! With each night paid at the lodge, they will give you a free ski lift ticket! Come see why this makes one of the best lodges in the U.P.!
Lac La Belle Lakeside Cabin- This lakeside cabin is perfect for your colder months getaway. Located right next to Mt. Bohemia Mountain Ski Resort, this area is booming with some of the best skiing west of the rockies, and it’s not just us saying it. This pet friendly 2 bedroom cabin is perfect for snowmobiling and ice fishing too!
Classy Shacks, Coloma– While there are several “shacks” in Coloma, they are far from shacks and closer to classy. These PET FRIENDLY, beautiful, some even elegant vacation homes are sincerely one of a kind. Some even sleep groups as large as 16 with great fireplaces, decks, and fire pits for everyone to snuggle in by a fire. Check out the breweries or ATV trails or go exploring in the woods.
Spider Lake Retreat, Traverse– Talk about a mecca of vacation rentals.

Talk about a budget vacation for the large group to make the holiday hectic, crazy and loads of fun! This vacation rental has 16 bedrooms with two beds each and a private bathroom for each bedroom!
