Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

9 2- bedroom log cabins with kitchens and shower baths.

We're located on the west shore of the north bay on Houghton Lake and we are open Spring, Summer, and Fall. Fishing is fantastic and we have a wonderful sandy beach area for swimming and a long dock for boats. Come view the awesome sunrises or bring your ORV and ride the trails!

Houghton Lake is known for its fishing! The lake has walleye, perch, bass, northern pike, and pan fish.

We have nine 2-bedroom log cabins that will sleep a maximum of 6. There are two full size beds and a pull-out or futon in the cabins. Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen which includes a microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. Cable TV in every cabin and free WiFi is available on the property.

We have a sauna, shuffleboard court, full size swing set, and two large community fire pits on the property. We also have ample lawn furniture, sand area, and a commons building for games!

Please note, we do not use the VRBO online calendar or booking. Please call for availability.

About Nancy Page

My name is Nancy Page. I am the owner of Wakaigan Shores Resort and I operate the property with my husband Jim, our son Garrett, and our daughter Skylar. It has always been our dream to live in northern Michigan and to own a business. We absolutely love operating this resort! We have met many wonderful people and made many friends. We live on the property and enjoy getting to know our guests!

Nancy Page purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Nancy Page chose Northern Michigan

Houghton Lake truly offers all the wonderful activities you expect of a Michigan inland lake. Additionally it is ideally located in the 'middle of the mitten' with easy access to all the wonderful things that bring people to northern Michigan. Day trips to attractions like Mackinaw Island, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Traverse City are all accessible from this ideal location.

When we saw Wakaigan Shores Resort we immediately fell in love. We have a beautiful lakefront piece of property located on the west side of the north bay which provides us with the calmest water on the lake. Our large property is well laid out to allow all our visitors plenty of room to enjoy outdoor activities.

The community of Houghton Lake is wonderful. It offers major chain shopping, some great restaurants and bars, a unique movie theater that shows first run movies, great golfing, canoeing, go-karting, and miniature golf.

Houghton Lake is a four seasons destination. Fall brings travelers looking for the spectacular foliage colors. The hunting is great for deer, bear, duck, and small game. Ice fishing is well known on Houghton Lake and culminates in the largest winter festival in Michigan; Tip-Up Town. There are over 200 miles of ORV and Snowmobile trails to enjoy just minutes from our property. Spring brings Turkey hunting and more fishing!

What makes this cabin unique

Wakaigan Shores has the charm and feel of the vacations your parents took you on when you were a child. Our large property offers plenty activities for the whole family! Enjoy your morning coffee on one of our bench swings looking out at the amazing sunrise. Shuffleboard and Water volleyball are lots of fun! Being on the west shore of the protected North Bay, our portion of the lake is least effected by wind and wave action. Evening brings families together around our two community fire pits to enjoy the spectacular night skies of northern Michigan.

Great trip up north

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, friendly people, awesome atmosphere, close to anything you want to do outdoors. We went grouse hunting on the state land nearby, was a nice getaway. Would certainly recommend this place to others.

Great Week of RELAXATION !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue.... My family and I stayed the holiday week at Wakaigon. It was very relaxful! Nothing like getting up in the morning and having a cup of coffee as you gaze by the lake. My sons enjoyed fishing, swimming, tubing, and throwing the football around in the water. There was a charcoal grill provided, so it made having hamburgers and hotdogs easy for the 4th. The area has some nice restaurants nearby, which is nice for getting away and not having to prepare all the meals. The cabin was fully stocked with all kitchen appliances, glassware, etc. It was clean and in great shape. This is a great spot to bring the family! We decided to go ahead and book for 2013!

clean cabins and grounds, sandy beach with waist high water for 120 ft out for kids, huge play area

  • 5 of 5

Nice clean cabins with all the dishes/appliances you need. Beach is fantastic. My son could go out 120 ft. and still only be waist deep in water, so I didn't have to worry about him. Came with a group and there was plenty of seating and huge green area besides the beach to play. They provided a row boat and canoe, shuffle board, disc golf, ladder golf and other things for us to entertain ourselves when we weren't in the water. We brought our bikes and were able to ride from the west shore resort to Dead Stream Damn to fish and jump off the damn and swim. The wi-fi, cable & free firewood were a great surprises.
