Property description

You'll fall in love with this place. Lower private bedroom with queen bed and and private bathroom. If you are lucky to nab the upstairs sleeping loft with a king and full bed, you will waken to a beautiful view of Higgins Lake. Enjoy coffee while sitting at the family oak table-again enjoying the view of the turquoise crystal clear water of Higgins Lake.

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.

Location

There is a fire pit lake-side. . We've had good luck fishing on Higgins Lake' , a lot of nice perch, small mouth bass and lake trout taken. Nice location for kayaking and paddle boarding, water skiing and tubing.` Good snorkel/dive site straight out from our cottage. Bald eagles have flight pattern over cottage & rest in the lake-front trees. Nice easy walk to Gerrish Township Park : tennis courts, basketball, baseball and slides for the kids. Other wildlife hiking trails along Cut River & Marl Lake run for miles-marked with info about wildlife & native plants. Fly fishing throughout Cut River & shallow rock areas in Higgins Lake. Ausable canoe liveries and boat rentals close by.
