Welcome to The Crest Resort.

Welcome to The Crest Resort located on the northeast shore of beautiful Houghton Lake…the “quiet side of the lake.” We provide very well maintained and remarkably clean one and two bedroom cottages on 150′ of lake frontage. Our completely furnished cottages have well equipped kitchens, one or two full size beds as well as a full size sofa sleeper in the living room. Each cottage offers satellite T.V. with 200+ channels, WiFi, charcoal grills, picnic tables, and a quiet sitting area on your own patio.

The Complete "Up North" Experience.

The Crest Resort offers our guests a 14′ deep V aluminum fishing boat free of charge with each cottage rental. Trolling motors (8 and 9.9 horsepower), as well as one pontoon boat is available to rent. A paddle boat and two kayaks are available compliments of The Crest Resort.

The Crest Resort offers our guests a variety of activities or just extra comfortable Adirondack chairs to relax in at the waters edge. We have a playground, wooden play set and covered sand box. Other games include; ladder ball, corn toss, croquet and a ping-pong table. We also have a campfire pit, as well as a gas campfire pit, a very grassy central area for picnicking, letting the children run and play or just relaxing. A heated fish cleaning station is available for our fisherman as well as an 80′ dock. Coin-operated laundry is available for your convenience.
