Welcome to Northwoods!

   Enjoy fishing? Looking for a place to stay on beautiful Portage Lake where there are many outdoor activities to enjoy with your family and friends?  You found the right place!  Located 3 miles South of Houghton, we are just minutes away from dining, golfing, shopping, Michigan Technological University, and the gateway to the Keweenaw Peninsula for some fantastic site seeing along the shores of beautiful Lake Superior.  Did I mention great fishing too! Portage Lake has hosted the PWT more than once!

 Come check us out or give us a call!  We would love to meet you and your friends and family.  That is the best part of this business.  We love seeing the friends that we make here come back year after year.   Click on the Amenities tab to see what we have onsite!
