About Patricia

As a child my family owned a cottage in Houghton Lake and I have some of my fondest memories there. My dream was to own a cottage 'up-north' and my husband helped me realize that dream in 2010. We want to share our beautiful cottage to others are who are looking to create lifetime memories.

Patricia purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Patricia chose Northern Michigan

Harrison reminded me of Houghton Lake, BEFORE it was so built up..30 yrs ago! It's quiet, yet not too from the city!

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful view of the lake, warm fires on chilly nights, relaxing evenings watching the sunset. Paddle-boating on the lake, swimming, fishing, skiing, etc.

Lakefront Cottage
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Price is right, lake house is PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a real gem and the price is particularly nice. The house is overall very clean, functional, and nicely decorated. This house has a real genuine "up north" feel. The enhanced sunroom over looking the lake was a favorite of EVERYONE at sunset; absolutely gorgeous for relaxing and sipping coffee or beer in the evening.

The lake is across a small dirt road, but the road is not busy and the neighbors seemed very considerate of all the kids coming and going to the lake to swim, fish, kayak, and play in the sand box (also very clean).

The walk from the house to the fire pit and lake is very short. The deck and patio furniture were well kept. The fire pit was clean and very easy to keep a nice big fire going (wood supplied). We sat around the fire, drinking beer, and listening to music (softly) till 3:00 a.m. and all the neighbors we totally cool about it (some encouraged it!!!!).

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE THE VALUE!!! We will be back next year!!!!
