My husband and I were looking for a cute, cozy, and quiet little cabin in northern Michigan to celebrate our anniversary and that is exactly what we found here. We were greeted by Joanna and she was so sweet, always making sure we were comfortable and having a good time. We took our four wheelers with us to go on...

I've been looking for a good resort in this area for years and finally found it. The owner Art and his wife Sarintra were outstanding with hospitality and customer satisfaction. We had rented (2) cabins for a weekend of snowmobiling. Several in our group rented sleds from Art. These sleds were in near brand new condition and handled the same....

My friends and I have stayed at American Oak Resort for the first weekend of Tip Up Town for 20 years. Art J has owned it for the last 18 years or so. Every year the resort seems to get better.

To top it off the owner was incredible rude and no consideration for safety on his roads with the cabin area. He was...

This review was from a local contractor that performed work here and stated when they left on Sept 22 that they...

My family thoroughly enjoyed a week of fun and relaxation at American Oak. Our spotless three bedroom cabin had everything we needed. The 24/7 manager, Jo, was a walking Houghton Lake vacation encyclopedia. Where should we go out to eat, buy bait, find fish to catch, do laundry, get groceries or learn anything else about the Houghton Lake area? Jo...

We have been staying at American Oaks for at least 5 - 6 years and every year is a wonderful experience. The lodging is clean and equipped with everything you need to feel comfortable.

“Ask "Jo", the manager. The cabins and chalets are all nice and fit different numbers and tastes”

“We were in a cabin without air conditioning. They have air in some cabins but during our stay it was reasonably cool and there are lots of oak trees for shade. If we were here during high humidity we may have opted for one with a/c. It was nice to have windows open”
