Houghton Lake cabin description

We're located on the west shore of the north bay on Houghton Lake and we're open year around. Come view the awesome sunrises, or bring your ORV and ride the trails! Fishing is fantastic all year, and we have a wonderful sandy beach area for swimming and a long dock for boats.

The Houghton Lake area has 200 miles of well maintained ORV and snowmobile trails. And we have lots of parking for your trucks and trailers!

Houghton Lake is known for its fishing! The lake has walleye, perch, bass, northern pike, and pan fish. The ice fishing is tops! We'll keep a cozy place here for you during TIP-UP TOWN!

We have nine 2-bedroom log cabins that will sleep a maximum of 6. There are two full size beds and a pull-out in the cabins. Each cabin has a fully furnished kitchen which includes a microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. Cable TV in every cabin and free WiFi is available on the property.

We have a sauna, shuffleboard court, full size swing set, and two large community fire pits on the property.

                      Houghton Lake is the largest inland lake in Michigan. It has over 20,000 acres and is great for fishing, swimming, and boating. The property also is close to state land that offers great hunting, ATV riding, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: My name is Nancy Page. I am the owner of Wakaigan Shores Resort and I operate the property with my husband Jim, our son Garrett, and our daughter Skylar. It has always been our dream to live in northern Michigan and to own a business. We absolutely love operating this resort! We have met many wonderful people and made many friends. We live on the property and enjoy getting to know our guests!

                      Why the Owner Chose Houghton Lake:
                      Houghton Lake truly offers all the wonderful activities you expect of a Michigan inland lake. Additionally it is ideally located in the 'middle of the mitten' with easy access to all the wonderful things that bring people to northern Michigan. Day trips to attractions like Mackinaw Island, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Traverse City are all accessible from this ideal location. When we saw Wakaigan Shores Resort we immediately fell in love. We have a beautiful lakefront piece of property located on the west side of the north bay which provides us with the calmest water on the lake. Our large property is well laid out to allow all our visitors plenty of room to enjoy outdoor activities. The community of Houghton Lake is wonderful. It offers major chain shopping, some great restaurants and bars, a unique movie theater that shows first run movies, great golfing, canoeing, go-karting, and miniature golf. Houghton Lake is a four seasons destination. Fall brings travelers looking for the spectacular foliage colors. The hunting is great for deer, bear, duck, and small game. Ice fishing is well known on Houghton Lake and culminates in the largest winter festival in Michigan; Tip-Up Town. There are over 200 miles of ORV and Snowmobile trails to enjoy just minutes from our property. Spring brings Turkey hunting and more fishing!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Wakaigan Shores has the charm and feel of the vacations your parents took you on when you were a child. Our large property offers plenty activities for the whole family! Enjoy your morning coffee on one of our bench swings looking out at the amazing sunrise. Shuffleboard and Water volleyball are lots of fun! Being on the west shore of the protected North Bay, our portion of the lake is least effected by wind and wave action. Evening brings families together around our two community fire pits to enjoy the spectacular night skies of northern Michigan.
