Guestbook comments from the owner

It was the best vacation our family every had! We rented both the big house and the cabin guest house and had a family reunion. The beds are very nice and being right on the lake is so special. We already reserved our week for this summer and plan on coming for as long as we can.

Best of Houghton Lake houses

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with some friends in early October. This house is very accommodating, lots of room in the kitchen, living room and sun room. The lake access is great with the dock, sandy beach and fire pit. I have recommended this house to friends since and will continue to book it for myself when available! Very clean, nice beds, very nice owner!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for yet another five star rating! We just love hearing from our guests! It is so nice to know that all of our effort is noticed and appreciated. We seriously have the coolest people visit the House on Houghton Lake and are blessed to be able to share this special place. It really is a four season house with so many fun things to do. Obviously the 28,000 acre lake is a big attraction in the summer, in the fall you have never seen so many beautiful colors on the trees, winter is a snowmobilers paradise and spring time relaxing on the lake side sitting room is better than any therapy! Benjamin, Thank You for the review and you are welcome at the House on Houghton anytime!! P.S. I look forward to seeing you in a week!

Not what was expected

  • 2 of 5
This house was not quite as described. When we arrived the yard hadn't been mowed, the ladder on the dock was broken and took 2 days to get fixed, there were mouse droppings in the kitchen cabinets, the ice and water on the refrigerator weren't hooked up, we were given 8 towels for 12 people and had to ask for more, and sparks shot out of the electrical outlet in the upstairs bedroom when used. Definitely not the quality of house we were expecting for the price.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all comments! That is how we improve it every year! I guess it's hard to please very one, but we sure do try! The house is set up and great for 10 people, not over 14 people. There has been more than that visiting though, with very happy reviews! ALL of their requests were fulfilled as fast as possible! Additional, Fresh, clean towels were delivered less than 10 minutes after requested! The ladder on the dock needed a serious repair so it had to be fixed by a contractor who was there less than 24 hours later. Love my contractor!!! From now on we will certainly check the dock after guests leave to make sure that all is well. The House on Houghton Lake is a very special place! You can tell by the bookings, as I am already half full for next summer and it is bookings from guests that were here before these visitors and after they left. Plus, many guests come every single year! I have never seen a mouse, nor mouse poo poo, but my cleaning lady did find some spilled chocolate sprinkles after these guests left , that she immediately cleaned up! :) We don't hook up the water in the frig because we had a house that the water line broke and the house had a bunch of water in it and it was a super big mess. We don't even have it hooked up at our own house for that very reason. We have a professional lawn service that manicures the lawn every 10 days and it was done while these people were visiting. We also had the electrician come and check out every single outlet and he said all of them were in perfect working order. Perhaps I could recommend that these guests will be happier at a hotel not a half of a million dollar lake front house! All potential visitors are more than welcome to come and check the House out in person, I guarantee you will be impressed!

Awsome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this property. The house was very comfortable, with enough bedrooms for the whole family, including several dogs and a 2 year old grandson. The location is very quiet and peaceful and the lake is incredible. The location is also within an hour and a half drive to Traverse City and Gaylord and just a bit farther to Mackinaw Island, so there is lots to do. We would highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: We are so lucky that we have such awesome guests! I can't believe the amazing, sweet people that have visited the House on Houghton Lake. We are truly blessed to have people come back again and again. The House was beautiful before, but now it is truly Splendid with a new kitchen, new livingroom, new lake side sunroom furniture, new carpet, new paint, new bedding, and just a brand new fresh feel. I am excited for you to see all the improvements! Remember, the House on Houghton Lake is available all year round, even for long weekends in the fall and winter. See you soon!

Great Fall Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I'd like to keep this one a secret, but my conscious won't allow it. This is a jewel of a vacation getaway! We went up to see the Fall colors are were treated to a beautiful sunny weekend in the 70's. We called Shelley an hour out and she had one of her brand new 22' pontoon boats on the dock by the time she got done showing us around the house. We spent a day and a half on the lake and we plan to go back in the Summer and rent both the house and boat for a week.

The property is in a great neighborhood sandwiched between beautiful homes and the house is a tri-level allowing for separation if you come in a group. It is spacious, comfortable and well maintained. We brought our dog and he had the time of his life chasing the chipmunk that lives under the paddleboat platform. The chipmunk won. Anyway, we closed out the weekend with a small bonfire while watching the sunset on the lake. It was the best weekend ever and we can't wait to return.

Amazing time in Houghton Lake!

  • 5 of 5
I had my first experience of Northern Michigan winters visiting the House on Houghton Lake and it was better than I ever imagined! It was so perfect for all 9 of us. It is a huge house and we all had a bunch of gear for snowmobiling and ice fishing and there was plenty of room for it all. When we checked in, all the lights were on and there were fires going in both the fireplaces, it made us feel so welcome! We seriously had one of the best vacations ever, and we will be going back this year as well. The snowmobiling is the best! There are over 90 miles of perfectly groomed trails. The House was spotless and the lady that owns it was very helpful and just about as nice as they come. Thanks again for everything!

It felt just like home!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back home from our trip to Houghton Lake. I had no idea the lake was so big! The house was even better than the pictures show. We walked into the house and we just relaxed. There was a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers on the table and the home was spotless. It is my dream to own my own home on Houghton Lake some day, but for now we will visit our home away from home. We already are making plans to go back next year.
