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.

I can’t believe it has been ten years already since we moved from Grand Rapids and bought the Crest Resort. What a great experience it has been for us. We have spent the last ten years remodeling, adding a cabin and improving the resort to make it a great experience for all our guest. Cary and I are now empty nesters. Zachary 25, graduated from Central Michigan University, got engaged and is living in Traverse City. Madelyn 22, graduated from Northwood University, is back home living in Roscommon and working in the accounting department at Lear. We are so proud of them and want to thank all our guest who also helped guide them to become successful adults.

It continues to be our goal that all our guest will have an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and spend time with family and friends.

Our mission continues: families that stay at the resort will reconnect with each other while taking a ride around the lake, go fishing together, or just sit around the bonfire discussing the experiences they had that day. We are also looking forward to family reunions, business retreats, youth and scout meetings. With the resort being open all year round we hope you come and spend a weekend snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing, or just enjoying the great winter months in Houghton Lake.

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) are also 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.
