Cozy Cabin on Houghton Lake for Family Fun or a Quiet Getaway for All Seasons
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend was the 4th time I have rented this lovely home on the lake. I love looking out the big windows in the front to watch the waves on the lake. The beds are very comfortable and it's so easy to get a good nights sleep there. The owners are very easy to work with and always make sure we have everything we need.

Town is close and has a Walmart and several great restaurants.

Can't wait to go back again!

Great cabin, with beautiful yard fronting Houghton Lake. Very comfortable amenities. Easy access to activities around the lake. Weather wasn't good for our holiday weekend, but we still enjoyed the view of the lake from the large windows.

A great getaway

We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. It was centrally located to the things we wanted to do and it was a lovely setting. The people handling the rental were easy to contact and friendly. The cabin was freshly cleaned. We would stay again. We hated to come home.

Excellent place to stay!

My husband and I stayed at this cabin and enjoyed it so much we came back again. This is a pet friendly cottage for responsible owners. Everything listed in the description is accurate, and the amenities are wonderful. Joe and Debbie are responsive and attentive, and wonderful to rent from. We love the Houghton Lake area and are glad we found this cabin to rent. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family, and hope to come back soon!

Houghton Lake is great for boating and fishing. There are miles ORV trails in the area. Houghton Lake as a 'Fun Land for Children' with go-carts, batting cages, putt-putt golf, and more. For crafters there is Arnies, one of the largest craft stores in Michigan. For shopping there is WalMart, K-Mart, and Family Fare. Great meat shop 'Family Meats' for the perfect steaks for grilling. Several novelty shops along the M-55 strip through Houghton Lake. Houghton Lake is in the middle of the state, so day trips to other sites or recreation areas is also convenient. This area is great for winter sports, ice fishing and snowmobiling.
