Escape to a cozy Michigan lake town and reset at this Houghton Lake vacation rental. This 1-bathroom studio cottage was built in 1900 and still features that old-school charm within its warm and homey interior, which is situated on a private lot near the lakefront! You’ll find plenty to do outside regardless of the season, from the winter’s ice fishing, winter sports festival, and nearby ski resorts to summers spent out on the water or on the hiking trails of Roscommon State Forest.
