Higgins Lake cottage description

* PLEASE NOTE* We will be adding WiFi in the spring of 2015. Our spacious, contemporary, charming blue cottage offers everything necessary for a perfect lakefront vacation. Our property has 50 ft of direct water frontage (NO road between our home and the water). The incredible view, large waterside deck with gas grill, sizable yard, and built in fire pit are just a few of the amenities you'll enjoy! And unlike some rentals, there is no additional cleaning fee during the summer months...it is inclusive in the total cost.

* In addition to our advertised pricing, we are willing to rent Big Blue for a month (which consists of 4 consecutive weeks beginning and ending on a Saturday) at a $500 discount during the summer. Our summer months book 1 year to 6 months prior...so be ahead of the game and book early!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We have a family-owned cottage on Higgins Lake just around the corner from Big Blue. My husband grew up vacationing at the family-cottage much of his summers, and we are now blessed to have our children experience this as well.

                      Why the Owner Chose Higgins Lake:
                      Our property resides in an quiet, family-oriented area of nicer cottages/homes, and is intended for family gatherings and nice, vacation getaways. It is not to be used for raucous, loud parties. Big Blue will be a place you and your family want to come back to yearly - a place where memories are made!
