We recommend planning and booking your place on the beach as far in advance as possible. The season of spring and summer fill up as much as two years in advance, so get to planning!
Especially in popular areas, you will want to get your reservation early.
Many places have a minimum stay, so this changes your choices, and you will want to plan accordingly.
We love South Haven! Chris and I got married here and we spend many days every year visiting and enjoying summer here. It's a summer tourist spot for sure, so be prepared for larger crowds! It has lots of events and festivals through the summer as well as one of the best beaches in Michigan.
This South Haven Beach rental condo is always a very popular place in South Haven, and for good reason. It offers a great location near North Beach, great views and private beach access! When we visit family we walk past this place a lot on the way to eating out or getting ice cream and it always looks fun! The pool helps in early season provide water activities when Lake Michigan is still a little cooler.

The reason why we love Grand Haven is it has a small town feel and is a little less busy than South Haven. It also still has lots to offer in charm and things to do. Its also located in very convenient location for short drives along Lake Michigan and to see other fantastic Michigan adventures.

Muskegon offers a link to Wisconsin with the High Speed Lake ferry to Milwaukee. Several years ago we took our car to Wisconsin via the high speed ferry to do a driving tour. During this tour we got our inspiration to build this website. The driving tour was the point we realized Michigan needed an authentic tour couple. We have been sharing our passion to show Michigan and all its beauty ever since. Michigan is an awesome place and we love it so much. You just cant beat our summers and this lake house is a great representation of a Michigan lifestyle!
Make sure and check the calendar this one usually fills up fast.....

The beach town of St. Joseph Michigan is special to Chris and I! This is where I grew up and I literally spent my summers on Silver Beach as a teenager. Chris's parents are from here and my parents taught high school here. While Chris and I met in Battle Creek, MI and he was born in Houghton, our connection has always been St. Joe, and if his parents hadn't of moved he and I would have been in the same school here at St. Joe. While we were first dating we spent lots of dates in downtown St. Joe and Silver beach.
So, when we say a hidden gem, Paw Paw lake is the representation of that! Paw Paw lake is one of the best places to stay in Michigan on the Beach. Chris and I after living in Michigan our whole lives, recently found this lake. Let that sink in for a second......Ok, so we have probably driven past this lake like a thousand times.
How do you ask if you miss such a thing? Because it's a hidden gem! Seriously though, we needed to slow down and see with our eyes. We are always on the move, and this is just far enough off the beaten path that it stays out of the view of the masses. This is why we think Paw Paw lake is such an incredible hidden gem!
