When sparkling water and fresh air call to you, this micro vacation rental will offer all the bells and whistles you want on-site and activities you could dream up nearby like great hunting, fishing, and ice fishing opportunities — you can even hit up the local snowmobiling trails a half-mile away during the winter. Cut through the lake with a loved one and a kayak or rent a boat from the owner so no possibility of adventure goes to waste. At day’s end, make s’mores by the beachfront fire pit.

Rustic style cabins with modern amenities. Small and cozy cabins right on the lake. Would have loved more outlets in the bedrooms, but we only needed them at night. We didn't rent the boats but utilized the new grills for dinner. The owner was on site and made us a campfire. Sleep listening to the waves of Houghton Lake!
