Michigan's largest inland lake, Houghton Lake, is the perfect spot for your next Michigan vacation! Houghton Lake Chalet is a great place to soak in the fun of Northern Michigan. Enjoy this classic cottage along a quiet street, with neighbors a comfortable distance apart on both sides. Houghton Lake is a popular destination to enjoy summer fun with your family. When you enter the cottage, you enter the cottage with the open kitchen on one side and the open dining area directly facing Houghton Lake. Attached to the dining area is the living room which encompasses the large windows overlooking the lake. Off the kitchen, there are 2 bedrooms on this main floor. Each room has a Queen bed. The bathroom on this level has been recently renovated to include a large shower, toilet and sink. A washer and dryer are also located within the bathroom.

To climb to the upper level, you'll need to have good balance and steady feet as you climb up the spiral staircase. We advise small children to sleep on the main level to avoid this staircase. This old-school, metal spiral staircase leads to 2 bedrooms with a 1/2 bathroom (toilet & sink) between the bedrooms. Each upstairs bedroom has 2 twin XL beds convertible to a King. This is an ideal space for your teens.

Houghton Lake is generally shallow for approximately the first 150 feet, so kids and adults alike enjoy wading and exploring the water, sometimes up to 100 feet from shore. The sandy bottom beach is ideal for your family getaway.


Air Conditioning: Central Air - New for 2019! Ceiling fans, portable fans and a nice cross breeze!

Bathroom: 1 full bathroom with a shower
2 half bathroom

Beach/Swimming: While kids generally love to swim in front the cottage, they do need to climb down the new stairs from the dock and into the water. There are rocks along the shoreline. Water shoes are highly recommended. There is not a sandy beach on the shoreline, though there is a sandy bottom of the lake at Houghton Lake.

Bedroom Configuration:
Main Floor-Bedroom #1- 1 queen size bed
Bedroom #2- 1 queen size bed

Upstairs-Bedroom #3- 2 twin XL size beds - convertible to a King
Bedroom #4- 2 twin XL size beds - convertible to a King

Internet: Yes! Free wi-fi for guests

Parking: 2-3 cars are able to park

Pets: Pets are welcome! Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $50/per pet for your entire stay. Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin.

Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we'll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed. If you don't crate your pets please DO NOT leave them alone in the cottage.

Space: Two floors. A set of bedrooms upstairs. All main living areas are on main floor.
