CABIN RENTAL ON BEAUTIFUL PORTAGE LAKE AND BIKE TRAIL

Houghton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for a place close to town and on a lake as well, this is the place! Whether it's for fishing, great swimming, bonfires, badminton games, or just to relax, come check us out! We are located on Portage Lake, between Chassell and Houghton.

NOTE: For the summer season, we do not use this calendar unless all of our units are filled, and we do weekly rentals only from Mid-June through 3rd week of August. See the link to our other HomeAway listing below. For the Winter, this listing here is the only one we currently rent out for nightly or weekly. It is an older mobile home style cabin. There is Wi-Fi, but is not real strong. Also, we do supply the bedding, but please bring towels.

Why the Owner Chose Houghton: I (Tricia) rented at Northwoods while attending MTU, so I naturally had a liking to the property. I had gone into Real Estate when Northwoods had come up for sale. We wanted to be on the water and knew this would be a great opportunity to do that, for we also reside on the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Portage Lake is a great recreational lake, including great sandy bottom for fantastic swimming. There is a biking/walking trail that runs right through the property so it's great for exercise or just a stroll along the water. There are other cabin rentals nearby, so its easy for people to visit other friends and family members that may be spread out.

Chris Kirkish was born and raised in Houghton, MI, where his family still resides, for they own a family furniture store called Kirkish Furniture. Tricia went to MTU for Geological Engineering, met Chris, and has now been here for 18 yrs! They both love the area for its many lakes, waterfalls, and friendly people.

It was fine

If you don't mind staying in a slightly run-down trailer, this is a good low-budget option. It was nice to be on the bike path. The internet typically only worked if I left the trailer and went to the picnic table outside. There's no air conditioning and some of the windows and blinds were kind of gross to touch. The kitchen was clean, though.
Recommended for:  Sightseeing
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. It is an older trailer, which we try to tell people in case they are expecting something newer like some of our other units. We have been working on updating things as we can. The bathroom was redone last year and new flooring in the kitchen, as well as a window replaced, and we plan to replace more. I will make sure to tell my cleaning staff to pay more attention to the blinds. I started just replacing those as they are so hard to keep clean. Also, there is an air conditioning unit in there. It is a portable one in the living room the doubles as a dehumidifier.

Thank you again!

My husband, daughter and I t hroughly enjoyed our stay - the cabin was clean and airy. The owners are lovely people who were available either by phone or by knocking on the door. Very peaceful and quiet. Loved it. Would definately book again when we are in the area
