Things To Do

Resort guests typically 'stay and fillet' because fishing is very good on Houghton Lake (Michigan's largest inland lake). The $100,000 Catch us If You Can' Fishing Contest, lake activities, and area Art and Craft Fairs will keep you coming back. You can take a Sunset Cruise aboard our Pontoon rental: the Driftwood One (24' Sylvan Pontoon boat with a 40 hp motor). Enjoy sailing, golfing and canoeing. Bring your own boat and moor it here!

Yes, we are open year round! The sledding hills in our area are amazing and have great vista-views. Cross country ski, snowmobile, and ice fish right from the front door. Since you book directly with us, we can help you plan a memorable Houghton Lake vacation. Winter season is highlighted by the Tip-UP Town, USA winter festival.

Things to remember: Your own bed linen, towels, soap and paper products.

Loved the location on Houghton Lake, the managment was always there to please the guests. We had a cottage that slept 10 for a family birthday for my son. Would love to go back but live in Fl and it is a long drive. Muriel maxfield
