Beautiful Home right on the water

  • 5 of 5

Great home. Enough space for everyone in our group and house was stocked with everything we needed. Only downfall was it wasn’t right on the snowmobile trail. We will definitely stay again.

Close to town and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

The sauna, the roominess, and the comfort are a few of the reasons we’ll come back to stay here when we make it to Houghton again. Lori was easy to communicate with.
