Cute Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The cabin was cute and in a great location with access to the boat ramp and not far to the beach. The kids had a great time and so did the adults!

We will definitely consider staying here again.

Tip Up Town

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay. The owner really worked around our schedule which was totally not required, and very nice. The place was clean and had really good climate control. We have stayed in lots of cabins over the years and the heat is always soso, not here, central forced air heat and perfectly stable. Had a driveway with plenty of room for two trucks/trailers/sleds and we could have fit more without much trouble. Almost spitting distance to the lake, with a beach, so no sea wall to ride over. There are two bars (that we found) within walking distance, at least one serves food. The local pizza place delivers. Overall very nice stay.

You get what you pay for-watch out for deposit refund

  • 1 of 5

This place was not very clean. I had to clean the bathroom tub, sink, kitchen sink and all the kitchen counters. I couldn't bathe my toddler in the tub. There is well water that is not treated so the smell is extremely strong (like sulphur). The tub was stained from the well water, which can be cleaned with proper chemicals. Towels were threadbare and dingy.

The surrounding neighborhood is in a more depressed area of Houghton Lake.

The owner only refunded my deposit after he didn't respond to 3 emails & I filed a complaint with VRBO (4 days after checkout) and left him a voice message. He claimed his cell battery had died (for 4 days?!?!) but magically called me back within 15 minutes after I told him I would be filing a complaint against his business in Houghton Lake.

Perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the perfect get-away place. I'm pretty OCD but I expect cabins to be somewhat old and dirty. This place exceeded my expectations by far. It's well kept and CLEAN! The one downside is that it only has one bathroom but it wasn't that much of a problem for the seven of us. (Also bring your own chairs to sit around the bonfire. The ones that are provided are a bit run down.) It's steps from the water and a small, almost private beach which we took full advantage of. It's also located near the action. We were able to get to a store quickly if need be and played a round of golf at a local course one morning. We will definitely keep this place in mind for future vacations!
