About Renee Herdon
I love the water and hope you enjoy this gem as much as I do. I can't come up and want others to enjoy the place and make family memories. I have horses and can't leave them every weekend to play in the sun.
Renee Herdon purchased this House in 1998

The house was spacious with a nice open floor plan and the furniture was amazing.
Everything u need for a great vacation, golf or fishing trip.
Owners were great to deal with and returned all text or phone calls almost immediately.
Awesome Winter Retreat
Tried this property out for an annual ice fishing trip after having a long time family cottage nearby sold over this summer. This place almost made me forget about my old cottage! It was super comfortable and spacious with an open concept kitchen, dining and living area that was perfect for lounging and cooking some hearty winter meals in the updated kitchen to warm up after a day out on the ice (which, by the way - Lyman’s shanties over the south shore weed bed are right there, which was super convenient for us.) The decor has a great “up north” feel and the views out of the large windows looking out over HL are amazing. The 3 bedrooms were all comfortable and having the 2nd bathroom was a huge plus as well. We only had 5 guys, so we spread out nicely, but the couches that folded out to beds were awesome and the place could easily accommodate many more than we had. Also, the washer and dryer was another bonus. Will be back for sure!
Hearing your responds makes renting worth while. I can’t use this lovely place very often so letting others enjoy it ‘is priceless.’ I’m glad the Lake House Retreat will be a place you can come and enjoy in the winter time! Try any of our other season too!!
Look forward to your return.
Very nice home. Plenty of room for our group of 8.
This was our 2nd year at this home over Labor Day weekend. We love being right on the water and the house is very clean and maintained.
Great to have family reunion in the home we built and lived in for 15 years. Lots of memories. Love the wood furnishings, view of the lake, and "at home" feeling.
We really enjoyed our stay and the home was beautiful. It was a perfect combination of rustic up north meats modern. If we come back to Houghton Lake again, we will surely rent this home again.
So glad you loved the place! We sure do! We would love you come back and visit. Houghton Lake is a 4 season lake so ice fishing and sledding are a blast for enjoying the winter months or the fall colors up north are a relaxing time to ease into winter. Come back!!
The house is "BEAUTIFUL", it is so roomy, very clean, the decor is "AWESOME". The house has everything you need for a Great Vacation. Huge yard, we played kick ball, corn hole, ect. Bon fires at night, nothing like sitting by the lake. Very peaceful and private. Loved the driveway and parking too. Can't say enough about the place. Would recommend it highly to anyone. Really hated to leave.
Thank you for the kindness! We love the place and it's our home and want to share with people since we are too busy to enjoy it ourselves. Stay tune for more updates...dock and deck and outside furnishing will be completed by next rental season. Hope you come back really soon to enjoy the lake house.
Lots of activities to be had on the lake and around the lake. Swimming, tubing, boating & jet sking
(rentals nearby). Sandy and shallow - great for kids to swim in. Houghton Lake is a fisherman's
dream - so many places to fish ( river, lake & canels). Located on the south side which is sheltered
more from waves and wind. Lots of shopping, restaurant & bars nearby. Walmarts within 5 miles.
Restaurant across street & ice cream shop is walking distance from house. M-55 has asphalt bike
lane for biking. Fire pit for marshmallowing and relaxing. Located near two amusement parks, go-kart tracks & put-put golf. Love to golf, there is 3+ locations to swing your clubs. ORV trails located nearby (must trailer to). Ice fishing & snowmobing is a very popular sports in the winter months. Within miles of state land for hunting. There is so much to do, your week will be fun packed! We are just miles from a huge scrape booking store/craft store. Large area for scrape booking at retreat.
Please email me and we can talk over the price. If available bonus days prior or afterward are awarded after a full week rental for $100/night.
