Houghton cabin description

If you are looking for a place on the lake and close to town, this is the place! Whether it's for fishing, great swimming, bonfires, badminton games in Summer, Snowmobiling in Winter, or just to relax, come check us out! We are located on Portage Lake, between Chassell and Houghton, MI.
NOTE: PLEASE CONTACT US FOR AVAILABILITY. FOR SUMMER SEASON, WE DO SATURDAY TO SATURDAY RENTALS, AND WE DO NOT USE THIS CALENDAR UNLESS ALL OF OUR UNITS ARE RESERVED, THANK YOU!. We have several units on the property. Please contact us for our full website. See the link to one of our other HomeAway listings below. For the Winter, this listing here is the only one we currently rent out for nightly or weekly. We are currenlty remodeling this cabin #7, and will have new pics soon!. There is Wi-Fi, but is not real strong. Also, we do supply the bedding, but please bring towels.
Why the Owner Chose Houghton: I (Tricia) rented at Northwoods while attending MTU, so I naturally had a liking to the property. I had gone into Real Estate when Northwoods had come up for sale. We wanted to be on the water and knew this would be a great opportunity to do that, for we also reside on the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Portage Lake is a great recreational lake, including great sandy bottom for fantastic swimming. There is a biking/walking trail that runs right through the property so it's great for exercise or just a stroll along the water. There are other cabin rentals nearby, so its easy for people to visit other friends and family members that may be spread out.
