Overview

Houghton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms (Two 2 BR units together), 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 8-12

NOTE: This is one building that contains two 2 BR units (units #8 & 9) that can be opened up into a 4 BR unit. They are separated by a lock-off door in between. The price together as a 4 BR is $1500/wk. We also rent them separately as two bedroom units. For the #9 side, its $875/wk as a 2 BR, and the #8 side is $675/wk as a 2 BR. We have several units on the property, If the calendar here shows booked, all of our units are booked. Weekly only rental season is May 15 - End of August, with the weeks running Saturday to Saturday. This is listed as one unit because two units are back to back with a door in between to open up the whole place as a 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom stand alone place with 2 large kitchens and 2 large living areas. One of the bathrooms has an electric sauna! Large deck on the side that faces the water Great set up for gathering and entertaining. Lake side also includes full wall of patio windows for a fantastic view. Central Air on one side, and a window unit upstairs in the other.

This unit has access to the badminton area, deck down on the water with a firepit, and fantastic sandy bottom swimming or fishing. A great plus is the direct access to the biking/walking trail that runs along the lake from Chassell to Houghton. Portage Lake Golf Course is located just a couple miles away.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT USE THE CALENDAR ON THIS SITE DURING THE SUMMER SEASON UNLESS ALL OF OUR UNITS ON SITE ARE RESERVED. See the link to our other HomeAway listing below.

Why the Owner Chose Chassell: 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 of this House: 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.
