I wanted to take my son for a weekend up north as a gift for his 18th birthday. Intended to rent a couple ATV's and this place fit the bill perfectly, at least on paper. Was a bit leery as I hadn't been in this exact area, but in talking with Joanna during reservation process, my concerns were calmed. Our... More

My husband and I were looking for a cute, cozy, and quiet little cabin in northern Michigan to celebrate our anniversary and that is exactly what we found here. We were greeted by Joanna and she was so sweet, always making sure we were comfortable and having a good time. We took our four wheelers with us to go on... More

I've been looking for a good resort in this area for years and finally found it. The owner Art and his wife Sarintra were outstanding with hospitality and customer satisfaction. We had rented (2) cabins for a weekend of snowmobiling. Several in our group rented sleds from Art. These sleds were in near brand new condition and handled the same.... More

My friends and I have stayed at American Oak Resort for the first weekend of Tip Up Town for 20 years. Art J has owned it for the last 18 years or so. Every year the resort seems to get better. We have stayed in the cabins since Art became the owner. The cabins are cozy, comfortable, clean and close... More

Where do I start. It was such a bad experience for my family that we left a couple of days early. All amenities were breaking down. The beach area if I could call it that was disgusting. To top it off the owner was incredible rude and no consideration for safety on his roads with the cabin area. He was... More

This reviewer was not a guest here. Nobody left this resort a few days early in June. The owner was not on site in June to talk with any customers as he was out of state for his wedding. 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

A group of 15+ friends and I came to the resort for our friend's bachelor party during Bud Bash and we had a great time. The rooms were spotless and the ammenities were very helpful, especially the grill. Jo and Jeff were amazing the entire time, answering questions we had and helping us every time we needed something.
