Houghton Lake getaway
Well, for one thing we couldn’t get in due to door code being wrong, after that we each took a bedroom, with one sleeping on air mattress in garage and one sleeping on air mattress in living room, we’re big guys that need room. Exterior of house was filthy, needed power washed with a couple exterior lights needing repair, inside of house was clean, nice kitchen, we ate breakfast there and went to different restaurants for supper. The Keurig coffee pot leaked like a sieve. Everything else was operational, except for television. It was supposed to stream off your personal devices but that didn’t work, we had my 6 year old grandson, and it would have been nice for him to watch something, but the three computer technicians I took with me couldn’t get anything going there. So that was a dealbreaker for us. It was good enough to fish from for 6 days, but won’t go back there.

House was exactly as posted. Lots of the small things you might forget were on site. Lots of kitchen tools, dishes, pots, serving bowls at house to use. Great location!

Would recommend
The owner was absolutely amazing and understanding. I would recommend to anyone coming up here! The only downfall I had was the driveway wasn’t plowed before we got there so my mother in law fell and left a nice bruise. It wasn’t fully cleaned - dirty dishes, dirty towels dust everywhere. Not worth a 100 cleaning fee
