About Mark and Chris
We enjoy providing a clean and affordable cottage for families and couples to use.
Mark and Chris purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Mark and Chris chose Houghton Lake
This cottage is located on the north side of Houghton Lake among privately owned cottages. There is less traffic and you have the yard all to yourself.
What makes this Cottage unique
Wonderful neighbors on both sides. We offer two boatlifts and provide a 12 foot row boat. Walking distance from a small store that sells tasty ice cream, pizza, meats, soda, adult beverages, and fishing bait as well as other food items.

Nice Place to Relax on the Lake
The owners and cabin are both excellent. Would stay again if we decide to come back to Houghton Lake.
Lovely cottage on Houghton Lake
My family and I had an amazing time at Due North Cottage. It had all the comforts of home with a beautiful lake view. We absolutely loved sitting out back and talking around a campfire next to the lake. The shallow, sandy bottom was absolutely perfect to go out swimming and was perfect for all the young kids in our family. The party store just up the way was so convenient to get the little things we'd forgotten. Would absolutely recommend staying at Due North cottage, you won't regret it!
It was so clean and truly easy to walk in and feel at home. Mark & Christa are so lovely and welcoming. They just want you to enjoy this special place. We had such a nice week. I love walking out the front door on soft green grass and there was the lake. Perfection😋😋😋.

Perfect 2-week vacation for us and our 5 kids !!!!!!!
Location. Location. Location. North shore of Houghton Lake is 3 feet deep for more than 100 yards out, no exaggeration. Perfect for kids and adults to frolic safely for hours everyday. (Our kids are 13, 10, 8, 7, & 7.) Views from the large south windows of Due North Cottage were always stunning. There's a little store down the road less than a quarter mile, which is perfect for cold drink runs, icecream/treat runs, live bait, fresh baked items, pizza, etc, etc. Also, Walmart, restaurants, coffee shops, laundromats, mini-golf, movie theater, etc are all just a 20 minute drive. There are State parks and forest preserves (great for hiking and mountain biking) within just minutes drive in every direction. We went tubing on the nearby AuSable River twice, just a 20 minute drive away. Due North Cottage is well kept and cozy. It slept 7 of us no problem. Kitchen had everything we needed. Lots of frig space for vacation groceries so we didn't have to run to the store very often. Little window AC ran hard to keep it cool on hot days but Mark & Christa have little fans in every room so it stays comfortable. Internet and cable worked great. Great gas grill which we used almost every evening. Absolutely picturesque bench swing and fire pit by the lake. Mark & Christa provided great communication from start to finish. We loved it. We would highly recommend it and we would love to spend another 2 weeks here again someday, maybe even next summer.
Beautiful cabin on a beautiful lake
We absolutely loved our stay. Absolutely beautiful view of the lake. Beautiful woodwork in the cabin. Our suggestions would be a less firm mattress in the room facing the lake., change the carpet in the bathroom to something else, and not have carpet in the kitchen. We would totally stay here again in the future maybe next time when it's hotter.
Great place for a family getaway.
Our family stayed for a week. There were plenty of activities for the children as well as adults in the area. Swimming, boating, fishing, bon fires just to name a few. The lodging was great and everything you need is provided. I would recommend this cottage and plan on returning.
Houghton Lake is the largest inland lake in Michigan with over 20,000 acres of water. Summer activities include fishing, swimming, boating, golf, and shopping. There are many restaurants and bars to chose from, go carts, 2 kids amusement parks, putt putt golf, and other water craft rentals. The cottage is within walking distance of a convenience store that sells ice cream and other treats. We provide Cable and internet. Sorry we do not allow pets!
