The house, a quiet private setting, is located on the East Bay of beautiful Houghton Lake. The property is nicely shaded with 50' of private lakefront with dock. Enjoy the sunsets from the lakeside sun room.
Inside the 2700 square foot house you will find two gas fireplaces, a fully furnished kitchen, four bedrooms, a large living room, and a beautiful sun room overlooking the lake. The dining room is large enough for everyone to eat together. Fresh linens and towels are included. The house comfortably sleeps eight with room for more. The house has plenty of living space for two families to vacation together. If you need more space, inquire on our optional adjacent lakefront guest house. Some of the amenities include large flat screen television with VCR, DVD and cable service, wireless Internet, microwave, stove, refrigerator, oven, and coffee maker.
Enjoy the lakeside fire pit and barbecue grill. Call early to reserve the best weeks, they go fast!
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
