Join Us on Our Journey Through Michigan …

Our goal is to find accommodations with a diverse range of features, amenities with prices to fit all budgets. Whether it's a private cottage in the woods, a family resort by the water, a luxury condo or a romantic bed and breakfast, we're continuing our journey to discover the beauty of Michigan and your home-away-from home.

The MVG is "…one of precious few publications detailing rental properties statewide." (Dennis Tanner, Booth Newspapers Travel Correspondent). Indeed, it is the most comprehensive book of its kind and has been recognized by travel writers and newspapers across Michigan, including the "Detroit Free Press", "Oakland Press", "Flint Journal", "Grand Rapids Press", to name a few. Over the years the MVG has gained a strong readership and continues to rank as one of Michigan's top selling travel guides.
