Reviews

Nicely manicured yard with lots of things to do on site. Our cabin was very 'homey' and comfortable, just as a lake cabin should feel! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook every meal for 9 people for our entire stay. The owners are nice and very accommodating. We had a great time and plan to come back year after year. Seriously, it's a really great place for both fun and relaxation! Book the trip. You'll be glad you did. Kendra Davis
We came up for a girls weekend and felt very at home in the cabin we stayed in. Well kept and clean. We will definitely be coming back again! Very reasonable prices as well! Erin Janos

About the Owner/Manager

My brother and I purchased Whitetail Family Resort in May 2017 from the Morris family, who owned the resort for 23 years prior to 2017. It has been wonderful adventure so far, living the Houghton-Lake experience and getting to know our vacationers. We both enjoy the outdoor activities available in, on and around Houghton Lake. We are enjoying learning about our guests and hearing their stories and experiences. Some of our guests have been repeat customers for nearly 40 years. We continue to strive to make each guest’s stay memorable and to keep them coming back year after year.
