About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 full Baths, 2 half baths (Sleeps 12 - including children)
Higgins Lake is the sixth most beautiful lake in the world. This spring-fed lake, with its sandy shores and lake bottom, boasts pristine clear waters, and crystal green depths. Our dock extends 80 feet from the shore. The water is knee deep with white sand bottom for 300 feet, then gradually drops off to deeper water. We have 200 feet of beautiful sandy beach front.
The Big House can sleep up to 12. It has a beautiful knotty pine interior, great room, and 2 glassed in porches. The house was built by a local well known Swedish craftsmen. There are many examples of fine carpentry throughout the house. The lake fills the view through the large picture windows which run the length of the house. The deck offers a spectacular view, especially on clear nights when the water sparkles in the myriad colors of the sunset.
