Our family had a wonderful time at the Maike House. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the house was two stories to accommodate our large family. It was perfect proximity to the beach and easy to get around town. The house accommodated children at a variety of ages. Suggestions would be to swing by Walmart and stock up on paper towels and paper plates to make your stay easier. There was a small leak during our stay. When we contacted the owners were very responsive and came out on a major holiday weekend. It was fixed in a very timely manner. This is a great place to stay to enjoy a relaxing vacation on Houghton Lake. Close to everything and has what you need to make a home away from home.
