City skylines or a tranquil lake view? Rather than agonize over which to choose for your next trip, celebrate -- you can have both. Slip out of Detroit for a day or two to rest, reset, and relish the resort life in Lake Orion, MI. Even without the alliteration, you’re in for a splendid time. The motto of this village getaway—much like your own—is, “Where Living is a Vacation." It’s as good a philosophy as you can find when selecting your destination.
Lake Orion hotels range from waterside luxe to simple and convenient, so you can find accommodation that suits your travel style. Swim, lay out, and be merry on the shore or glide over to see the handful of lake islands. The largest, Park and Bellevue, are accessible by two-lane bridge while the others, including Romance Island with it’s solitary cottage, can only be reached by boat. It’s worth the rental to paddle out and explore these small retreats, where the only sounds you’ll hear are lake birds calling, wind in the trees, and water lapping on the shore. When you’re ready for sanctuary of the cushy bed and warm shower variety, motels in Lake Orion, Michigan, are there to welcome you with fresh sheets and dreams of a bronze, even tan.
Rent a car in Lake Orion for greater freedom to explore. A drive out to Robert’s Rondevoo cove (not to be confused with Robert’s Rendezvous Cove, which should always be said with a French accent), will place you precisely where the story of the Lake Orion dragon originated. As you ramble, you’ll find a number of spots to enjoy a fresh-caught dinner. While watching the sunset from one of the hotels in Lake Orion, MI, take in community lore from local historians over a glass of wine.
