About Amber Engle

We live in Grand Blanc, MI and have been married since 2008 and 3 beautiful boys (6,4 and 2). 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 Northern Michigan

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!

Had a blast at your place!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from spending 3 days at this houghton lake hideaway with 13 of my friends. It was everything we expected and more. The owner was more than quick to answer any questions we had and made sure that the place was neat clean and ready for our large group. We had a great time playing cards, having a huge bonfire and watching football on the large tv in the front living room. We will definitely be back for more great times!
