Why Chuck Quiney chose Houghton Lake
Great for family or groups of couples. Since this is the forth year we have offered the property for vacation rentals. It is important for us to provide a great rate with great accomodations and service to encourage our guest to return.
What makes this House unique
The back deck has a panaramic view to the north east and offers a great campfire pit for night time views unhindered by buildings. The fishing is excellent just off shore. Accessible with just a row boat. This year we added a fish cleaning station at the request of the guests.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Perfect cabin for a lake-front get away!
Between the grill, deck, dock, fire pit, and fish cleaning station, you'll have everything you need to make the perfect lake-front, up-north Michigan get away.
The cabin itself is cozy and clean. There is Wifi and multiple TVs with cable (though we didn't turn them on once in 4 days). The AC in the bedrooms was perfectly adequate even when it was pushing 90 degrees outside.
The only negative was the hard water and low water pressure, but that is pretty common for the area. The owner even thoughtfully provided a large jug of bottled water in the fridge for drinking.
We would come back in an instant.
Very nice accomodations
We had a great stay at Houghton Lake. The booking process was very easy and everything was as described in the house. Very nice and very clean with great access and views of the lake. We made several day trips for sightseeing and it was nice to return "home" after a day of driving and hiking to relax and just enjoy the sunset and evening. There are all sorts of food options available within just a few minutes or a nice little galley kitchen for cooking your own meals. We would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay on Houghton Lake! Also a very timely return of our refund! Chuck, Thanks for sharing your property with us and our dogs!
Thanks for the grest review and come back any time.
Great times were had by the family - memories for life.
Owner Chuck Quigly is a terrific guy and the property was as described. He provided helpful advice on boat rental and helped us research history of our childhood visits to the lake.
Great place and location
Great people to deal with.great place would go back again
We have been staying at Chuck's place for 5 years now. Always very clean with everything you need. I made a recommendation last you about putting in a fish cleaning station. This year we showed up and Chuck put one in. Thank you! That worked perfect. We will be back next year.
We had a great time!
This place was very clean! Very conveniently located to shopping and attractions. We loved the upstairs so very spacious. For being a rental the beds were in good shape.
A inland resort area with a small town feel but easy access to shopping and restaurants.
