#4 of 13 hotels in Houghton Lake
Driftwood Resort is situated on the shores of beautiful Houghton Lake, Michigan's largest all-season in-land lake. With Driftwood's three docks, two large lakefront fire-pits, complimentary use of row boats, kayaks, SUPs, canoes, outdoor recreational equipment and lawn-games, large shaded children's playground, Driftwood Resort is a wonderful place for your next vacation, annual family reunion, group retreat, or as a base-camp for your fishing, hunting, antiquing, x-country skiing, or snowmobiling adventures! Our sparkling clean and well-maintained authentic Log Cabins and Cottages have the conveniences you'll want (refrigerator, microwave, stove, dishes and cookware, grill, picnic tables, Wi-Fi and cable TV, gas furnaces, and more) along with the wonderful charm and amenities reminiscent of a favorite cottage at the lake. "Ace's Perch", our large knotty-pine recreation building, with Ping-Pong, air hockey, billiard and shuffleboard tables, darts, several game-tables, and a stock of games, cards, puzzles, and books makes a great place to hang out with friends and family. Cheer on your team or enjoy a kid's movie night on the big screen. Ace's Perch is also a perfect facility for meetings, retreats, crafting classes, or parties. There is plenty of parking on the resort grounds for your boat/ATV/snowmobile trailers too, as well as secure mooring for your personal watercraft on the lakefront.

The owners are wonderful. The cabins are sweet. The view is great and the sunsets breathtaking. Tip Up Town was cold. It was a very cold weekend in Houghton Lake. TUT was brutally cold with a wind chill below zero. It is so comforting that we had a nice cozy, warm and

Thanks for the kind words Phil. We were glad we had a chance to 'share' the lovely winter sunset (and a bit of the Tip-Up-Town fireworks) with you and Eileen out on the lakefront last evening! We hope to see you again sometime here at Driftwood. Jim and Karen
