About Jennifer Marquette
We have owned this home since 1994 and have created many family memories in this home. We have been visiting Houghton Lake for years prior to our home purchase.
Jennifer Marquette purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Jennifer Marquette chose Houghton Lake
We purchased this property as a vacation home as well as an investment. Eventually, we may look to retire in the area (if the winter doesn't get to us). The cottage was built somewhere around 1920 - 1930. While remodeling we found signatures on the exterior walls dated 1931 but are unclear whether they were visitors or were christening the house.
What makes this Cottage unique
I love the cottage feel, especially since we remodeled. It is a mix of knotty pine and modern elements. The views from the deck and just the lakefront itself was the main selling point, not to mention the amount of room in the cottage. It is small but handles a fair amount of guests without being overcrowded.
