About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 )
We consider our guests part of our family. Many wonderful times and memories have been made here. Our property is huge. We have about 100 feet of waterfront and our land runs about 300 ft back from the water.
It's sunny and hot mid-summer on the lake yet at the same time the rest of the property is cool. Mature pines and other trees shade the rest of the property and we keep them trimmed high so you have an unobstructed view of the entire lake. Ring the big cast iron bell to bring the kids in for dinner from around the lake. At night time, enjoy marshmallows over the lakeside campfire.
We are in an original private residential district dedicated to private residences, not multi-unit condos, resorts or mixed use. This is one of the most private areas on the lake. The interior is beautiful, light but rustic tongue & groove wood which make up the walls & ceilings. Friendly wild game mounts throughout cottage; African antelope, deer, huge moose, doll sheep, wild boar, fish mounts.

You can see virtually the entire south half of Higgins Lake (5000 acres) and a good part of the north half of the lake, including Treasure Island because we're on a bluff. There is always a breeze around the cottage - even when it is 100 degrees at the water. 5 minutes of boating to the 'sunken island', the favorite place to swim and spend the afternoon....moreless
