Rapid Retreat is a great option for a northern Michigan getaway
Rapid Retreat offers everything one could ask for when seeking a northern Michigan vacation. The service was outstanding and responsive. The home itself offers every amenity one could need and the outdoor space leaves one feeling that they'd rather stay outside. Views of the lake were breathtaking. Highly recommend.
