Good Mood Nest

Your 1st clue you are are getting away from it all occurs when you pull into the driveway. Frankly, it feels almost impossible to be in anything other than a good mood when you land in the Good Mood Nest. Arriving with your small family, or simply your special someone, you'll find a smile on your face as you enter your home-away-from home, which starts to put your mind at ease. Calgon.. take me away!

The home is crisp and sharp, with updates to make your experience the most comfortable possible. There is no clutter. Plenty of room to place your groceries on the counter as you being preparing a special meal. Ease in terms of communication between the rooms, relief with a variety of seating options and accent pieces which pop are all appreciated. The thoughtful design elements extend throughout each of the rooms, from the kitchen to the living/dining combo to the bedrooms and simple outside nature.

The firepit is set for you to relax your evenings away, with a backyard large enough for outdoor fun, while wrapped in a blanket of large trees for privacy.

Staying directly on the lake can be overrated. If you desire more space for your small family, no need to worry about your little ones too close to the water, freedom from the Houghton Lake crowds, while still being in the vicinity, the Good Mood Nest is your ideal escape.

Let the positive energy you found at the Good Mood Nest fly back home with you, with hopes you are in an even better frame of mind than when you first arrived. We will look forward to seeing you back again.
