About Chuck Quiney

Resident of Houghton Lake Area for over 37 years. Local business owner retired. I am a Canadian from the Toronto area, my wife is from Dearborn, Mi. She was active in yoga, hospitality and healtrh clubs. I owned a business in Grayling that manufactures fire apparatus for many fire departments in the this state and many others. I am just a frustrated mechanic that can't stop fixing things. This home has been in the wifes family since 1968.

Chuck Quiney purchased this house in 1968

Why Chuck Quiney chose Northern Michigan

Great for family or groups of couples. Since this is the first year we have offered the property for vacation rentals. It is important for us to provide a great rate with great accomodations and service to encourage our guest to return.

What makes this house unique

The back deck has a panaramic view to the north east and offers a great campfire pit for night time views unhindered by buildings. The fishing is excellent just off shore. Accessible with just a row boat.

Comfortable Stay on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed for our weekend golf getaway in Houghton Lake. There are lots of places to sleep, a nice porch, and the lake is right out the back door. We wouldn't hesitate to book the house again.

Labor Day Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what we were looking for at a reasonable price. We rented this for a weekend with friends! We enjoyed being able to cook meals on the grill and just sit on the deck morning, noon, and night. Also, a great lake and we enjoyed campfires on the beach area each night! Hope to return for future stays! Thank you, Chuck!

Nice, clean, great waterfront property

  • 5 of 5

This place is well represented by the photos. No surprises! We really liked the "private" nature of this property. Lots of room and no resorts or condos stacked up on the lakefront, just this cozy lakefront cottage. Boat dock was great for my 17 ft Lund ProV, it was nice to walk right out my door and jump in my boat and go fish.
