|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Get together with friends and family at this nice, cozy Houghton Lake cottage with 150 feet of lake frontage, triple the lakefront of most lakefront properties. You'll enjoy the nice sense of privacy on this partially wooded 2 acre property with a creek separating you from the neighbors.
A large family can easily stay at the cottage with sleeping room for up to 6 people. A queen-sized bed in the master bedroom, a full-sized bed in the second bedroom, and a pull out couch in the living room provides room for 2 additional people. Enjoy preparing your favorite home-cooked meals in the full kitchen equipped with everything you need. In the evening relax by a bonfire and enjoy the beautiful, night light view from across the lake. Or relax indoors and enjoy the view from the comfy couch while enjoying satellite TV or a movie on DVD. There is a lovely fireplace also to be enjoyed for cozy nights. The cottage is well equipped with most of what you'll need, including fresh linens, towels, pillows and blankets. Clean and comfortable.
Spend your days outdoors having fun, enjoying the beautiful lake and view. Houghton Lake is a great swimming, boating and fishing lake. The yard is spacious and sunny, great for hanging out, having barbecues, tossing a frisbee, playing volleyball... or pitching a tent for the kids. Feel free to bring your boat and use the sea anchor and dock out front. There are restaurants around the lake to stop in and dock at while out boating, to enjoy a beverage or lunch, while overlooking the lake. Relaxing by the water as you take in the views is the perfect remedy for unwinding and escaping your hectic life for a moment.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 1967
Great vacation, great scenery, cannot say enough...bonfires everynight, clean cabin...great owner. Loved having our boat right our front in the water...best family vacation ever...
The cabin owner was great, had access to a canoe and row boat. Many extras in the cabin.
The cottage was perfect for our vacation. It has a lovely view and access to the lake. The rental process was was smooth and effortless. We did day trips to the west to see sights on Lake Michigan to the east to towns and sights on Lake Huron and even a LONG day to the UP to cruise the sights of Pictured Rocks. We even fit in time to just sit and relax at the cabin.
The owner is AWESOME. They have everything you need in this cottage. My whole family including my son from California and my teenage grandchildren joined us here and it was fantastic. The yard is beautiful, the cottage is clean, clean, clean. Very very comfortable. I did not want to go home. I am so sorry we could not make it back this year, but hopefully, can make it back next year.
My family and I enjoyed the cottage very much. The owner was especially attentive, making sure things were perfect for our vacation. House was very comfortable, view of the lake was wonderful. We plan to go back and we highly recommend it!!!
I grew up in Cadillac, Michigan and my husband and I wanted to escape the hot summer of 2012 where we now live in the central US, so booked a week here when a special DEAL was offered online. SO glad we did...the owner is wonderful--She has remodeled the cottage and has thought of just about everything anyone might like to have available for a fun time at the lake. The kitchen has plenty of cookware, although the oven looked old, so we used the microwave. An assortment of dishes, cleaning supplies, staples plus 'little extras' left for us by the owner, made us feel right at home. In the bathroom, a brand new glass ultra-modern shower is a dream to use. The wi-fi, satelite tv and new a/c were bonus's not always available 'UP NORTH' and very appreciated.
There are black squirrels, lots of ducks, kirkland warblers and other songbirds, plus a bald eagle which flew right over the cottage several times during the week of our stay! There's even a jon boat with trolling motor included in the rent .(Kayak's are also available.) or there's a pontoon boat available for an additional charge A nice big firepit offers wonderful evening campfire possibilities right at the water's edge. We loved it here!
