3 bedroom, 1 bath with gorgeous views of Houghton Lake
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.

The property was just as described. Jennifer did a great job communicating and we had a smooth stay. The house was clean and is in a great location right on the lake.
Winderful week of new memories
Your cabin is warm and inviting. Having grown children it was a great place for all meet. There were ample sleeping spaces and a well equipped kitchen. We love to cook! We used the dock to hook up our boat and jet ski. The water was warm and clear! We all agreed that we wiuld rent this cabin again! Thank you!
Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation at our cottage. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay. This place had a great up north charm and had all the amenities of home! We brought our Seadoo. Wave runner and had the best spot on the lake to ride. This lake is huge. The shallow waters were easy to get in and out! Thanks for a great stay!
