Vacation Rentals

We have partnered with Todd Haulenbeek in creating our sister company: Home Waters Vacation Rentals. Our focus is providing clean, comfortable properties in exceptional locations so our clients can simply enjoy their vacation and not worry themselves with finding a suitable place to stay. See the full list of properties HWVR represents and get more information about management for your rental property here.

Since our founding, we've had the good fortune of representing the sale of some of the finest waterfront and recreational properties in northern Michigan.  Many of our seller and buyer clients over that time have asked if we also handle vacation rentals.  We thought it was a good opportunity to help out our clients and friends in business.  Below you'll find a couple of vacation rentals that we manage as well as those represented or owned by trusted clients and friends.  Rest assured that we would not allow anything to be posted here unless we were 100% confident that it would be a high quality property that's well cared for and that you'd be in goods hands with the owner or manager.  Enjoy your stay up north.  Reach out to us when you're ready to buy your own piece of northern Michigan!


Forest Haven on Lake Skegemog

This spectacular cottage home on Lake Skegemog is a perfect example of the properties we represent.  Nestled among towering pines and hardwoods, this recently built craftsman style cottage home is ideally located on quiet Lake Skegemog and provides boat access to Torch, Elk, and Clam Lakes and Lake Bellaire. The well designed home features plenty of room for family and friends to enjoy time together or find a quiet space to relax and enjoy the solitude. There is no need to sacrifice the comforts of home with this well appointed property. 

Lake Skegemog is not quite as well known as her sister lakes, Torch and Elk, but there are many advantages. The water warms much earlier in the season making early season swims or ski sessions much more enjoyable. Relative to Torch and Elk, there is much less boat traffic on Skegemog so quiet moments are much easier to come by. The fishing on Skegemog is also much more accessible with shallower water and tremendous populations of bass, perch, pike and world class musky.

Skegemog Point road is a breathtaking tree lined lane extending north directly from M-72 providing very quick access to Traverse City and downstate. Because the road terminates at the water, there is no through traffic providing a great atmosphere for morning walks.  Click any of these images to view the complete details of the property or to book your stay this season.  Click the title link for this property or click HERE to view more details and book today.
