  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "We stayed here for a week with another family and our babies. We had a wonderful time exploring the raspberry-lined path to the river, going for walks on the trail nearby, and making use of the many places inside the cottage and on the large deck to eat and relax. We really enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen to make meals together. Sandie and Bill were wonderful hosts and brought us arugula and kale from their garden. Their cottage was beautiful inside- one of a kind with creative decor. We appreciated the privacy from the surrounding area. We enjoyed going for day trips to Harbour Springs and Petosky. Overall, we had a wonderful time in the comfortable and well-stocked cottage and hope to return to the area soon for another relaxing vacation."

  • Beautiful Cabin, Amazing Service, Great Vacation!

    "We rented the cabin for a week in August for a family vacation / college reunion. The first part of the week we had three couples and several young kids. The second part of the week, we had 8 guys get together for an annual reunion. The place was perfect for both groups. Everyone had a blast, there was so much to do! Fishing, hot tub, swimming, boating, roasting marshmallows, kayaking and horseshoes. There are several golf courses nearby, a zipline course, and plenty of other activities in Gladwin or West Branch. Two Scoops Ice Cream and The Camp are right up the road and offer some great, nearby food options. The inclusion of the pontoon with the rental was a great bonus, and really made the week a lot more fun. The lake is small and murky, there is no beach or swimming off the dock, but if you take the boat out to the middle its deep enough for swimming. We did quite a bit of fishing, catching mostly small stuff, but it was still a good time. The cabin itself is really the highlight. Its beautifully maintained, with plenty of room. Our group of 8 adult men were very comfortable and never felt crowded. Three bathrooms was definitely a plus! Beautiful views of the lake, a nice deck and firepit were great too. WiFi would be nice, but most of us had decent cell service so it really wasn't that big of a deal. The owners are also very responsive. When we arrived, we noticed that the firewood was almost completely gone, and that the burners in the grill had rusted through. I sent a note to the owners just to let them know, and the next day a truckload of Firewood arrived and the owner showed up with a brand new grill. Amazing service! Thanks again for a fantastic week!"

  • Great Comfortable Family Cottage!!!

    "The Flynn Family Cottage is an ideal place for a large family stay on Higgins Lake (or a smaller family). Actually, in our 30+ years going to Higgins, it is one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in. On this trip there were eight of us; my wife and me, two sons with their wives and two grandchildren. Everyone had a lot of room to move around in without bumping into one another. The cottage layout is great. The very large kitchen is separated from the living room. The living room is spacious with comfortable seating for everyone. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The highlights of this location include a long private entry road through the woods that gave it a north woods feel. The beach and fire pit are great. The lake at this point had a smooth sandy bottom and the grandkids (3 & 5) could walk out beyond the end of the dock and it would only be up to their chest. At night on the dock, the stars were magnificent and you could see the Milky Way. We had a great time and highly recommend the Flynn Family Cottage. We’re going back in 2016!!"

  • Older cabin charm

    "Easy access to Topinabee and Indian River by power boat. Clean and well maintained, it has rustic wooden paneling and decor that will take you back in time a when you arrive. Sunsets are beautiful for this location. On demand water heater means you don't run out of hot water - even when the cabin is at full capacity."
