OPEN YEAR ROUND
Welcome to The Sands Beachfront Resort. We're glad you found us. We are a 4 season resort for the whole family.
When we named our beautiful resort "The Sands Beachfront Resort", there was a special reason behind it. More than 200 feet of golden, sandy beach lie between your comfortable lodging and the clean and clear waters of Houghton Lake. But "The Sands" is more than just swimming and lounging on the beach, as delightful as that is. We are situated on 2 acres of a beautifully landscaped park-like setting and have 160 feet of dock where you can park your boat or jet ski, cast a fishing line or just sit and dangle your feet in the water. We even offer on-the-premises rental of pontoon, row and paddle boats.
Your summer fun never ends with "The Sands" convenient location on the west shore of Hougton Lake. We are walking distance to the DNR Boat Launch, Coyles and Whiteheads Restaurants. There are 3 golf courses nearby, along with an amusement park and putt putt golf to your hearts content.
And as for winter at "The Sands", snowmobiling, ice fishing and skiing will keep your days filled with fun. Houghton Lake is like a visit to a winter playground for snowmobilers with over 200 miles of groomed state land trails. Tip-Up Town is a true festival on ice, where some 80,000 tourists travel to our area from all over Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and other states just to experience the largest Winter Festival in Michigan, and for more then 20 years it has been among the top 10 festivals in the nation. It is held annually the 3rd & 4th weekends in January. Why not make a reservation early to join the fun!
