  • Super Cute 105 Oakridge


    We rented this property for a 60th birthday celebration and it did not disappoint. Super clean! Very comfortable! We enjoyed the outdoor area and the game room was fun. Great location…close to the lake, bars, restaurants and shopping. The hosts were very nice and very helpful. Will be staying there again!!

    Every detail was carefully and thoughtfully carried out . This rental will give you all the comforts of home and then some.The screened in game room is an added bonus to escape to on rainy days, or even after a long day at the lake . Truly, this is a place to enjoy all seasons !! Don’t hesitate, this one gets a solid 5 stars !!!!

  • Stop Searching Now - this is the PERFECT cottage on Houghton Lake!


    Wish we could give it more than 5 stars! My husband and I were at the lake for

    a relaxing get-away. We've rented vacation homes in Florida, Virginia, and Michigan, and everything about this cottage exceeded our expectations. It's been completely renovated, inside and out, and looks just like the pictures. Every space is immaculate, with top notch furnishings and amenities. Everything we could possibiy need was included, clearly marked, and easily located. The bedding and towels were wonderful, it felt like we were in a luxury resort. We had a few questions about the area and our stay, and the owners answered immediately. As advised in the Welcome book, we had several meals at local restaurants, with friendly staff and delicious menus. We walked a block to the lake every day and enjoyed exploring the neighborhood. Highly recommend Brian's Marina for boat rentals and service. All in all, it was a fantastic experience - I'll stop now, or you'll think I'm a friend or family member of the owners! I'm just a very happy vacationer!

  • Perfect cottage on Houghton Lake!


    If you're looking for a delightful home on Houghton Lake, stop scrolling! Wish we could give it more than 5 stars. The furnishings and amenities are amazing, the home is immaculate, bedding and towels like those at a luxury resort (we asked the owners for a link to purchase them for our own home). There's nothing we would change about our stay. When we had questions, the owners answered immediately (including when we locked ourselves out - totally our fault!) We walked to the lake, less than a block away, every day, tried several of the local restaurants recommended in the Welcome Book, sat by the firepit, played a game in the gameroom, and rented a pontoon from Brian's Marina. Everything you'll need for a wonderful stay is right here!
