We stayed at the "Tuthill House" for a month, so our "likes and dislikes" may not be typical. From the time of our first inquiry about the property, until the time of our departure (and even after), the owner was always available and quickly addressed our needs. Calling this place a cottage is not appropriate....it is much, much more! Ample room for 2 couples! The house was clean and neat upon our arrival, and there was ample bedding. The amount of glassware, silverware/utensils, dinnerware and pots & pans was amazing, and the gas grill better than we have at home. Privacy abounds; the setting is in the nicest residential neighborhood on the lake, and yet, shopping and restaurants are relatively nearby. The hard-sand lake bottom extends about 400 yards out into the lake (about 4' deep), and is great for playing in the water. For us, being away from home for 6+ weeks, the included WiFi was a godsend. The resident mallard ducks are always looking for a hand-out and will even eat out your hand if you're patient enough. What didn't we like? The beds were unsatisfactory.....too soft and sagged toward the middle. The dark log interior begs for brighter lighting. The sprinkler system wets downs the front porch (and everything on it) every morning. And, although the dock is nice, it's shared with the next-door property, and with the house being on the East side of the lake, it is usually too rough for small boats, but GREAT for water toys. Not much for "dislikes".....we had a great time and would probably rent again & could certainly recommend it.

Why the Owner Chose Houghton Lake:
This place as the perfect sandy bottom with no rocks or weeds. It's the best swimming ever.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
