Resort near Two Serene Lakes in Northern Michigan

Houghton Lake is Michigan’s largest inland lake. It’s a puddle compared to the surrounding Great Lakes, but Houghton is appealing on its own terms for its small size and calm atmosphere. Just a few miles away from Houghton Lake you can find Higgins Lake, which is about the same size. Located just a mile from Houghton Lake and about a 25-minute drive from Higgins Lake is Springbrook Inn, resting on 5 acres populated by pine trees, deer, porcupines, and foxes.

The inn is tailored specifically as a couples retreat. Each guest room has a hot tub, gas fireplace, and king-size bed. Innkeepers Matt and Kathy Grover encourage their guests to get out as much as possible to enjoy nature. They’ve curated an extensive list of local things to do in any season. Right on the property, you can stroll past perennial gardens and a japanese koi fishpond with a waterfall and gazebo.

The inn’s onsite tiki bar, The Frog, is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in the spring (Tuesdays through Sundays after May 23); it frequently hosts trivia nights and tasting events. Stop here to enjoy tropical drinks alongside mahi fingers, chilled jumbo shrimp, and other Caribbean-style entrees. Meanwhile, the more upscale East Bay Grille serves fine cuisine such as Prime steaks, walleye, and veal.

Prudenville, Michigan: Lakeside Small Town Surrounded by White- and Red-Pine Forests

The northern Michigan town of Prudenville marks an edge of the 22,000-acre Houghton Lake, the state’s largest inland lake. Between Houghton Lake and nearby Higgins Lake are countless parks and nature areas where you can go bicycling, hiking, or bird watching. And there are several other outdoor activities, such as golf or canoe trips on the peaceful AuSable River.

On Houghton Lake itself, you can fish for bluegill, bass, and walleye. There are several launch sites and marinas around both Houghton and Higgins Lake. When the weather gets especially warm, visitors lounge along the lakeside beaches, including Sullivan Beach, just a few miles from Springbrook Inn.

About 16 miles north of Springbrook Inn is Marguerite Gahagan Nature Preserve, which has a network of hiking trails threaded through 60 acres. Signs pop up throughout the trails that tell informative tidbits about the white- and red-pine forest and cedar swamp habitats. A small stream known as Tank Creek also cuts across the preserve, and it's lined with boardwalks and decks that overlook the water.
