"Your website is one of the best I have seen. It’s easy to sort by what you need instead of going through all of them. We found 4 rentals on the Sunrise Coast that gave us everything we were looking for and booked one for the fall. We will be using this site again and i am going to tell all my family and friends about this site as well. We do a lot of family get togethers and you have several that would hold all of us and that is great. Thank You"

Testimonials from Michigan vacation rental owners/managers

"As the summer passed, I allowed about 6 of the properties to expire on VRBO. The rest will expire in December. I have been on subscription/alternative payments the past few years. We’ve had our own website for 8 years, and I placed all of our properties on, last spring. I did a Constant Contact mass email last fall, educating and urging about 700 past customers and inquirers to book direct. So how did we do? Well, about 50% of our bookings came from either our website or the RentMichiganCabins website. We have been impressed with RentMichiganCabins. The owners have been great to work with, and they are passionate about the book direct movement. We were pleasantly surprised at the number of inquiries and bookings we have gotten from them."

"It is a good value and we are happy with your service. A check will go out in the mail today!"
Peter Stephens
Twin Lakes Shore Resort

"Talk with your guests by phone before booking them to make sure they are a good fit with you and your property. VRBO and Airbnb will not let you do this. They will also charge your guests extra fees. I rent out my vacation home in Keweenaw county and use I also have a Facebook page. Using these I’m able to book as many weeks as I want. The website focuses on vacation homes in Michigan. It’s reasonably priced (I don’t recall the annual fee but it’s around $300. People book direct through you, there are no additional fees for your guests. I used VRBO before Expedia bought it and changed everything good about them. Switched to Michigan Cabins and never looked back. I continue to book as many weeks as I want in the summer, have total control of my home, my guests save money booking direct through me vs. VRBO. I highly recommend them. They also have websites that focus on several other states and regions across the US."

"Over the four years I have advertised with, I have seen both my inquiries and booking increase every single year. Really like this website, the owner is genuine and he makes you money, think about giving it a try. I enjoy his websites and working directly with him, he always answers the phone himself. His model is to have guests rent directly from the hosts, no Airbnb or VRBO BS."

Spider Lake Cottages

"I am so grateful that you have this website. I expect to be using it much more. I am trying to get away from VRBO/HomeAway/Airbnb especially after they changed the terms of their contract without notice.
