About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This is a one of a kind, premier, lakefront property. A charming, two bedroom cottage in the middle of an unheard of 1.75 acres of beautiful, unique, lakefront property, with an equally rare, 150 ft. of choice lake front. The cottage is hidden from the road with woods, and in front of the cottage, is the large, wide open, sunny yard, with the wonderful lake and it's view. Trees are all around for privacy and beauty. The cottage is clean, comfortable and cozy. It comes with plenty of necessities and extras, you will find. You will have everything you need for cooking and dining. Linens and plenty of fresh towels and blankets are included. The cottage is well maintained, with many updates in the recent years. The living and dining rooms are comfortable, cozy, and both have the beautiful lake view to enjoy. There are two bedrooms, one consisting of a full bed, the other bedroom having a queen bed with a t.v. and dvd player also.

The cottage is carpeted throughout, has plenty of windows, all having nice views. In the center of the cottage, dividing the living and dining area, is a great see thru fireplace, that can be enjoyed from either of the two rooms. You will also find firewood conveniently on the property.

The cottage is located on the quiet and beautiful north shore, and is conveniently located close to party stores, a neighborhood restaurant/ bar, and a boat launching... all just about a mile away. There are plenty of convenient things just within a couple miles from the cottage, such as golf courses, hiking trails, a park offering a tennis, basketball court and playground.

The towns of Prudenville, Houghton Lake and Roscommon are all approximately 10-20 minutes from the cottage. You will find grocery, amongst many other stores and restaurants just a few minutes away.

The lake bottom in front of the cottage is sandy and shallow for a WAYS out...with a VERY gradual decline, making it safe for swimming, wading and playing in the water. Just straight out from the cottage a few hundred yards out, you'll notice it to be a favorite fishing spot.

This is a great place for families, friends, couples etc. The large yard with plenty of room, is great for play, get togethers, cook outs and just hanging out and enjoying the sun and surroundings. You will love the space, beauty and privacy. In every season there is beauty all around.

(Included is Dish satellite, dvd/vhs, Wi-Fi, charcoal and gas grill, picnic table, lawn furniture, fire pit, private dock and mooring for boat.)... all to yourself.

If you like the lake, but also like space, privacy AND beauty..this place is for you!

About Caroline Zadrozny

I came up to Houghton Lake since a kid, staying at a resort just down the road. In 1980 my family purchased this cottage and when it came time, since it is so special and unique, I couldn't see it sold, so I bought it and became the sole owner in 2010. Since I'm not able to use it enough, I decided to open it up for others. It's a very special place where lifelong memories are made, you will see! ; )

Caroline Zadrozny purchased this cottage in 2010

What makes this cottage unique

An unusual 1.75 acres on the water with rare 150 ft. of lake front. (that is triple of most around). Woods on property make for privacy and beauty, hiding cottage from the the road. A deep, wide open, spacious yard by water for playing and fun. A "creek" on the property adds in the privacy, and charm.

Charming abode for making family memories

  • 5 of 5

We had a small clan of extended family stay at Caroline's. From the beginning, Caroline was very communicative and helpful. We enjoyed the home, the lawn (which had some goose poo that Caroline was very kind to clean up - an inevitable side effect of lakeside living), the fire pit, the warm, shallow water, the boat, everything was great for making wonderful family memories. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the home was extremely clean. Loved it, highly recommended for your romantic getaway or family vacation.

Awesome cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I've rented many cabins and condos through the years but I have never rented one that was as well equipped as this one. There is literally everything you can think of to make your stay a pleasant one. Plenty of dishes, cookware, spices, towels, pillows, everything. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Great Private Space

  • 5 of 5

This is a great space if you are looking for cozy and private. The house is set back on a secluded driveway and the acreage offers privacy on both sides. The yard is very big; offering lots of room for yard games or to let the kids run and play. Very well stocked with all the items needed for a relaxing get away. The house was clean and well maintained. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
