“Great Place to Kick Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

Had family here from California, we spent time here in Houghton Lake at the Sands Resort. It is one of the original resorts of the area. So many have closed down, but Matt & Sandy Loccrichio keep the Sands going. We had great adjoining rooms with a kitchen in one, it has a nice beach & dock area, game room & campfire area. We were treated like family and would recommend it to everyone.
Note*, Matt is going to retire and has the resort for sale, so this may be the last year we can enjoy this resort.
Sandy has a store downtown "Morning Glory Mercantile", it is a craft & antique shop and a really fun place to shop- don't miss going there.
