My Vacation Rentals

Year round vacation rentals in the Pinckney Recreation Area.  Special rates for direct bookings available.

Come explore the highly desired Halfmoon Chain of lakes and go for hours and never pass the same shoreline. The deep lakes offer wonderful swimming, boating, kayaking, canoing and fishing opportunities. Over half the shoreline of this chain is owned by the State of Michigan, making these lakes much less developed than other lakes in Southern Michigan. The natural beauty and scenery rivals that of Northern Michigan (without the drive).

Located in the center of the Waterloo/Pinckney recreation area the surrounding area encompasses thousands of acres of pristine forest land and many trails open to the public including the Potawatomi Trail and the Waterloo–Pinckney Trail. Trails pass through oak and pine forests and glacial features such as eskers and kettle lakes and through swamps and open meadows remaining from fallow farms. The trails offer some of the best hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking and hunting in the State of Michigan.

Enjoy the beautiful lake sunsets as you relax on the patio or enjoy a warm campfire as you gaze at the stars. Visit a local pub or explore the City of Ann Arbor just 25 miles to the Southeast. The towns of Chelsea, Dexter and Pinckney are all within 15 minutes.
