15+ Michigan Beach Rentals that are Available Summer 2021 if you Move Quickly

Michigan Beach Rental

Reasons to Book Your Summer 2021 Michigan Beach Rentals Now

Getting your spot on the beach isn’t always easy in Michigan.

Families find a favorite location and return year after year. Often, Michigan beach rentals are booked a year out, with dibs going to return visitors. That’s why, if you see yourself lounging lakeside in summer 2021, now is the time to stake out your spot in the sand.

Luckily for you, I adore swiping through Airbnb listings and have spent hours sorting through Michigan beach rentals that I think would make for great family getaways.

Bonus: I made sure that, at the time of publication, each rental on this list had openings for summer 2021.

If you see a bolded Saturday on the calendar during that time period, that means the cottage is available for the following week, even though the days in between the Saturdays are crossed out. If you have questions about availability for any time period, please send us a message.
