Canton vacation rentals

Quintessential suburban living in the heart of Michigan

Nestled about halfway between Detroit and Ann Arbor, suburban Canton is an ideal gateway for exploring everything that southern Michigan has to offer. Characterized by large private homes and manicured lawns, Canton is also home to plenty of parks, trails, and golf courses for getting out and enjoying the fresh air. If you're looking to experience college town charm or big city life, a Canton vacation rental is the perfect spot to do both. Closer to home, you'll find everything from 19th-century schoolhouses to modern theaters, making for a charming stay.

Vacation is a great time to roll the dice

There's a little something for everyone near Canton, so why not try it all? Test your skills on the two golf courses, or head to Belleville Lake for some prime boating and fishing. Get happily lost among the annual public art displays along Ford Road, or on the extensive trail system that's a favorite with hikers, bikers, and joggers. Sports fans can catch a game and some top-notch tailgating at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. If you're feeling lucky, there are plenty of casinos in Detroit and Windsor across the border, so don't forget your passport.

Schoolhouses rock in picturesque Canton

For a small town, Canton is big on history. A centrally located Canton vacation rental will surround you with 19th-century charm, thanks to sights like the Bartlett-Travis House, dating from the 1840s, and the 1876 Cherry Hill School, the quintessential one-room schoolhouse from eras past. The Canton Historical Society Museum is set in yet another 19th-century one-room schoolhouse. The famous Cady-Boyer Barn, which predates the Civil War, will take you even further back in time. Be sure to save time to catch a performance at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill.

Enjoy your stay in the four seasons

Like much of the Midwest, Canton sees four distinct seasons every year. Summers are usually pleasant, with high temperatures in the 70s and 80s from May to September (though they can spike higher in July and August). Winters are the exact opposite, with lows starting to dip below freezing in December and staying there until March. You'll also see plenty of snow and ice, so bundle up. Spring is unpredictable, so you'll want to check the forecast before heading to your Canton vacation rental. Fall brings cool temps and fiery foliage, particularly in late September and October.

More than just cows and corn in Canton

Venture out from the tree-lined suburban streets of Canton, and you'll find a picturesque patchwork of dairy and corn farms, which eventually rise to meet rolling hills north of town. For even more diversity, head east to Detroit. Past the glittering urban center you'll find the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, the only international wildlife preserve on the continent, with islands, waterfronts, and wetlands that are home to plenty of friendly critters. The vastness of Lake Erie extending southeast of the city never fails to impress.
