About Amber Engle

We live in Rockford, MI and have been married since 2008 and 3 beautiful boys (8,6, and 4). We purchased this Houghton Lake Home so our family, and hopefully yours, can enjoy for many years to come!

Amber Engle purchased this house in 2014

Why Amber Engle chose Houghton Lake

As soon as we stepped foot on this property, we knew that this was a special place. The house showed so much potential and seemed to go on forever (extremely deep home). Once you 'finally' reach the entertainment room, the view of the lake is a refreshing site. We completed a full renovation without holding back much and with a rustic feel that you should expect from a house up north. We can see this house in our family for years to come. This will be a place filled of memories for our family and hopefully yours too!

We had our annual ice fishing trip and had a blast. Tons of room, it was very clean, and Amber was very easy to deal with. I will be looking to return in the summer.

We had 11 guys for a golf weekend and the place couldn't have been better set up for us. We had plenty of room and Amber made sure we were well taken care of. We would definitely stay here again. Great house, thanks again!!!

Labor Day at Houghton Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great family weekend on the lake! The cabin was very nice and comfortable for the adults and kids. Really enjoyed the deck and yard. Only complaint, the wifi was not working and that was a bit of an inconvenience as we had family activities that involved wifi. Other than that, we had a memorable stay and would definitely like to stay there again.
