We had decided to purchase a home on Houghton Lake because of it's size and clean, clear water.

We also wanted the space of a large lot and wanted a very peaceful area.

This home fit all of this!!!

Great walleye fishing in Michigan's largest inland lake! The water is warm,shallow and sandy bottom in front of home. Ice fishing and snowmobiling is terrific also. Home of 'tip up town' winter carnival. Great sandbar in water across lake from home. Not an outdated old cabin but a very nice home that is very ' lodge like'.

Very nice home right on the East side of Houghton Lake. About 25 mins from Walmart for fishing license & forgotten items. It was very windy on the East side of the lake but beautiful 80'weekend. We took a small 10 aluminum boat, dock not in as water too high.
Very spacious place with beds, would sleep 10 easily & privacy for all if us (5) & we had out own rooms & rooms to chill out. Lots of toys in the garage, beach chair. Extra grills, floating toys, etc. Lots of family friendly DVDS & Vhs movies
Large kitchen with plenty of plates cups, bake ware, coffee pot, microwave & dishwasher. Included some spices & sugar, flour etc. Dish soap & dishwasher soap too. Awesome washer & dryer.
Don't over pack...use the amenities.
We walked nightly- peaceful..
Fished every day, bonfire at night...fun older couple next door..cable TV .

Good location, spacious, well-supplied

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week there with relatives on an annual summer vacation. We enjoyed our stay. Wood floors throughout. Though there is no A/C, there was plenty of breeze and all the windows open to keep it cool. The kitchen was well-supplied. Everything we needed for plates, silverware, cookware, knives, spatula, mixing bowls, etc. was all there. Beds were comfortable. Washer & dryer were pretty new and in good shape. Paul provides PFDs for boating/swimming, fishing poles, bikes, propane for the grill(s), fans. Everything is there.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home, which was very clean and well maintained, I would recommend this home to everyone,but sort of want to keep all to myself. Everything was detailed,and the instructions were very easy to follow and posted everwhere,so you never had to second guess. The sunset is breathtaking. Can't wait to rent again.

Notes:
Peaceful and private street, with great lake views. Great fishing! SAND BEACH UPDATED 2013 -35 TONS BROUGHT IN TO THE ALREADY 50 TONS THERE! Known for one of the best walleye lakes in the state. The lake is 20 miles of shore line and 8 miles across, largest inland lake in Michigan. Many sandbars to beach your boat on and wade in very warm waters. A sandy bottom is in most areas of lake but our area is very sandy and shallow and down right hot water in mid season!! A 20 x 50 area of beach sand is sitting in front of seawall with a boardwalk adjacient to lake for sun sitting or playing in sand. Update: **** everyone loved the sand beach this year!!!!! ADDED:::: BONUS GAME ROOM
