~ ABOUT US ~
We are a small family owned resort located by the largest inland lake in
Michigan. The resort leases 10 of the 11 condos of the American Oak Condo
Association. Houghton Lake is in the heart of the state, conveniently located
between Interstate 75 and US-127, less than three hours of any place in the
Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Here at American Oak Resort, friendly service in
a family atmosphere is what we are all about. Whether you come alone, with
your family, or as a corporation, we can accommodate your needs.
We have accessibility to ORV /ATV trails from the units so you are
able to rent an ATV from us or trailer in your own, and ride right from your
cabin or chalet. Also in the spring there are plenty of places nearby to
canoe, golf and hike. The property during summertime offers you a private
beach area to relax, with a 240 foot dock where you can dock your own personal
watercraft. If you like you can lease one of ours from the American Oak Resort
office located across the street from the cabins and chalets. The resort also rents pontoon boats,
waverunners, ski-boats and fishing boats. All powersports are leased from the
American Oak Resort office at 112 Jefferson. You are free to take watercraft
anyplace on Houghton Lake, and dock it at the assigned spot for your condo.
ATV and Snowmobiles are also rented from the leasing office, and those are for
operation on State Of Michigan trails. Powersports equipment can be taken to
any unit and part in designated areas.
The property features a large fire pit centrally located between the cabins
and chalets for everyone to come together and enjoy nightly campfires. In the
fall, we have plenty of room to accommodate your hunting group. During winter
months American Oak Resort offers snowmobile rental, and we
often have "Stay and Play Packages" available. We have adequate room
to park your trailer if you want to bring your own, and you can ride on the lake
to get right to the State Of Michigan snowmobile trail system.
The city of Houghton Lake, Michigan hosts annual craft fairs three times
a year across the street from our resort during Memorial Day Weekend, Fourth
of July Weekend and Labor Day Weekend. Every January, Houghton Lake has it's
Tip Up Town Festival as well. Tip Up Town is Michigan's largest winter
festival that typically occurs the last two weekends in the month of January.
Tip Up Town's site festivities are within walking distance, approximately 3 blocks away from our resort.
American Oak condo's are the perfect place to get away for a
