                          Why the Owner Chose Houghton Lake:
                          My husband and I love Houghton Lake. We use this property ourselves, and rent it occasionally to help pay the property taxes. Houghton Lake is Michigan's largest inland lake, and is great for all sports including fishing, skiing, windsurfing, swimming and more.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The sunsets are incredible. Guests love us to have a fire in the fire pit on a nice summer evening. The water has a shallow sandy bottom for kids to swim, but is deep enough to bring a boat to the dock.
