This is a cabin filled with lots of fun memories and great times. We recently added an addition on to this cabin because we loved being able to have family and friends stay and enjoy their vacation with us. The living & kitchen area is decorated in a rustic cabin look with wooden wall and a cozy cabin feeling decor. The sunroom located right off the living room has a lake view that is relaxing to sit in and watch the sunset. The main floor has six bedrooms decorated with different themes. Two bathrooms on the main floor. The upstairs in a wide open loft style room with six beds, two couches and a full bathroom. This room is great for kids and adults to have fun, play games and goof off! The basement has a washer and dryer, futons, beds, and a table that works great for games. Outside there is a private basketball court, sand volleyball court, campfire ring and a grill for you to enjoy. There is a lot of room for outside fun. The yard is very big.

There a great place to go canoeing we go as a family year after year.


The property by the lake is owned by another party, however there is a DNR Boat launch located about a mile down the road about a 2 minute drive & about a 10 minute drive there is a place to swim on public access beach area & a play area.

What a great week getaway with Family

  • 4 of 5

Tim & Cassie,

Thanks so much for a great week away on Houghton Lake. The house was more than big enough for our large family and the outdoor space provided room for eating & barbecuing,

basket ball, bocce, volleyball and bad mitten. The sleeping rooms were large and comfortable and the house came fully equipped with all the amenities that we needed.

Thanks again and looking forward to another stay at the Compound.

Great Owners and Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

When we pulled up to the cabin we were in awe of the volleyball and basketball courts. The cabin itself is very large and comfortable and you can tell there is a lot of fun that has been had there by families. The owners were great to work with and provided plenty of the little things that you need for a trip. Not having access to the lake is a bit of a downer but not the end of the world. You still get a great view and the boat landing is basically around the corner. Our group will definitely be considering coming back next year!

This place was absolutely tremendous. We went in the winter time which we had some worries about beforehand, but the cabin offered plenty of amenities that kept us busy the entire weekend. There was plenty of sleeping space for the group we had, and everything was in outstanding condition. Zero complaints!
