Your search for a lakefront log cabin is over! Not just any lake either; Houghton Lake is Michigan's largest inland lake - it’s a 22,000 acre waterpark. Sandy bottom and shallow water depth at our shoreline make it ideal for families with small children. The lakefront fire pits are popular resort areas to watch the beautiful sunsets. Tons of things to do, so the kids will never get bored.

Elk Cabin is a modern housekeeping unit and is completely furnished. Guests will find home away from home amenities like carpeting, TV, refrigerator, coffee maker, gas furnace, water heater, stove and microwave oven. Shake off the winter chill next to the wood burning fireplace.

Please bring your own bed linen, towels, soap and paper products.

We've stayed at Driftwood Resort the last 3 summers and love every minute of it. Great family place. The log cabins are cute, clean, well maintained. Can't wait to go back this summer! Sara Pelletier Reder
As always, the cabin was spotless. Paul promptly delivered the firewood and our weekend is off to a fabulous start. The best resort at HL. Elmer Wolsfeld
