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, More 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.
