About Lake Michigan Cottages:
Lake Michigan Cottages was founded in the year 2000 in Grand Haven, Michigan. We started our vacation rental property management program with only 4 properties, and have grown every year by using sound business tactics, cutting edge technology and developing personal relationships in the communities that we serve. We contract with individual property owners for vacation rental marketing and property management services. These valued relationships allow us to offer our guests the largest assortment of vacation rental properties along with superior customer service. We vow to solve issues in a fair and timely manner that show understanding to anyone involved. We strive to make each guest's vacation a simple stress free process from booking through departure. When you book a vacation rental through us, not only are you a valued guest, but you also are part of the Lake Michigan Cottages Family!
