    My brother, his son and I stayed here between 11/19/2022 and 11/23/2022 for a 4 day rest and to binge watch Yellowstone. The first morning we noticed it a little cold in the house and kept trying to turn it up but it wouldn't warm up. I was texting back and forth with the owner. She at first couldn't find anyone to call to come out and fix or look at it. So she ordered from Home Depot an electric fireplace heater for the front room until we could get it fixed. Here husband came in from his hunting trip to check things out and see what he could do. By then we had a furnace guy there and they let him do his thing. By the end of the evening we had heat and was comfortable the rest of our stay. She told us not to worry about being out right at 10am, to take our time. Plus she refunded our pet fee for the inconvenience of having to go pick up a heater and find a heating guy. (I just so happened to know a guy) So, great people to rent from. The house is right on the lake in Prudenville and was very clean and nice. I would stay here again, only maybe summer time next time. Cheryl

  • Second Stay and can't wait to go back again


    This is a lovely property and the host is always helpful and responsive. We had a great time and the place had everything we needed (for cooking, relaxing on a rainy day, playing in the yard/lake). We used the bedroom with 2 beds for a pack n play for our little. It could have fit in the other rooms a bit but it would be tighter. A wonderful location, can't beat the lake and view, and a very nice property. Thank you for everything, can't wait to bring the family back in the future!

  • Houghton Lake Holiday


    This home is a gem on the lake. The view is spectacular to be enjoyed from the yard or the sun porch. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. If I may suggest two additions, an ice cream scoop and some wine glasses would be welcome additions.

    Check in and out was easy and efficient. There is plenty of seating on the patio, and a lovely table and chairs for six.

    The neighborhood is quiet and well maintained although it wasn’t summer yet.

    Communication with the contact was helpful. She even called our first evening to make sure all was well.
