This review was from a local contractor that performed work here and stated when they left on Sept 22 that they... More

My family thoroughly enjoyed a week of fun and relaxation at American Oak. Our spotless three bedroom cabin had everything we needed. The 24/7 manager, Jo, was a walking Houghton Lake vacation encyclopedia. Where should we go out to eat, buy bait, find fish to catch, do laundry, get groceries or learn anything else about the Houghton Lake area? Jo... More

We visited this resort again, this time over the 4th of July. There have been more upgrades since last year and we rented a pontoon and a ski boat. The pontoon was a newly refurbished boat and it was very nice. We took a trip around the whole lake at a slow pace and it took the majority of a... More
