Lake Michigan is one of America's five Great Lakes. Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana border Lake Michigan. It is the only Great Lake located entirely in the United States. With over 1,600 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of off-white sand beaches and recreational opportunities found in Lake Michigan's beach towns. In Grand Haven you can go charter fishing, bike along challenging paths or golf at one of six locations. In Saugatuck you can canoe through the Allegan State Forest, and in Muskegon you can board a World War II submarine.

Tips & Warnings
- Search for deals. If you are on a budget, visit the featured deals section of the site. You will get a list of all current deals. If you decide to use another travel website, look at reviews. Find out what other travelers had to say about the cabin and the website itself. If booking your cabin through a travel agency, do background research on the agency.

Ask about location and proximity to major attractions and points of interest.
