              Year Purchased: 1971

              About: I am a semi retired dentist and love being at Higgins Lake. I have three sons scattered across the country. We all converge back at the Lake during the summer and relive the early years with fond memories.

              Why Higgins Lake:
              My mother bought this cottage (immediately adjacent to our large family vacation home) in the early 1970's. She immediately transformed the house into a photographers studio. After she died, I remodeled the house to serve as my family's vacation home.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The cottage was totally rebuilt in 2006 which included re-insulating the front 450 sq feet of the house updating the kitchen,, tearing down the remainder, and adding on 1200 sq feet. There is also a new foundation under the entire cottage.
