About John Wagner
I am a semi retired dentist and love being at Higgins Lake. I have three sons scattered across the country. We all converge back at the Lake during the summer and relive the early years with fond memories.
John Wagner purchased this House in 1971
Why John Wagner chose Roscommon
My mother bought this cottage (immediately adjacent to our large family vacation home) in the early 1970's. She immediately transformed the house into a photographers studio. After she died, I remodeled the house to serve as my family's vacation home.
What makes this House unique
The cottage was totally rebuilt in 2006 which included re-insulating the front 450 sq feet of the house updating the kitchen,, tearing down the remainder, and adding on 1200 sq feet. There is also a new foundation under the entire cottage.

Great Rental/Fabulous Views/Wonderful New Family Memories!
Wow … what a terrific week with so many new memories! We rented this lovely beachfront home from 7/29/17 to 8/5/17. It provided the perfect setting for our family reunion to reminisce about so many beautiful summers spent at Higgins Lake in the past. The on-line photos very clearly showed the size, furnishings and updated features of the home. It was very clean and had virtually everything needed; the views were spectacular and the peace and tranquility were amazing. It provided the perfect location to enjoy the lake on a pontoon; canoeing on the Au Sable River; side trips to Traverse City and Sault Saint Marie (Soo Locks); golfing nearby and even enjoy the pizza at Fred’s in Roscommon. We even enticed our daughters to reunite for a repeat of their “Rhinestone Cowboy” performances from the 1970’s. The owner, John Wagner, and his son Scott were the perfect hosts … always available to answer questions and provide help if needed. We were very happy about every aspect of this rental; will certainly return here again soon, and would highly recommend this rental home to others seeking to enjoy the beauty of northern Michigan and create some special memories of their own!
Great week to be at Higgins Lake
Luckily, we had a HOT week, at Higgins Lake... It was such a pleasure to come in from the water and have A/C. This cottage is in a great location, a good family cottage, with a good beach, that you can walk out, into the water, for quite a ways, in a sandy part of the lake. We had the grandkids with us, so this was important. The cottage has a homey atmosphere and porch views are incredible. The tranquility of this place, says it all.
The property manager was very accommodating and was right on top of the few issues that we had.
The Dish TV and phone reception were good. I've booked for another week, for 2016. The cottage has an "old cottage feel, with wooden floors, and an expansive view of beautiful Higgins Lake."
I would highly recommend this place...It's just perfect to "chillax" and enjoy the beauty and sounds of silence. Another Higgins Lake memory...
We three middle-aged women truly enjoyed this cottage. Plenty of room in the bedrooms to move about. Not at all cramped, dingy, or musty as I've experienced in other rentals. We found clean, modern bathrooms and kitchen; refrigerator was spotless! We brought our own sheets, but cupboards are loaded with plenty of bath-towels, sheets, and blanket-throws for your beds and yourselves (while watching TV). Beds were as good as home: not very aged and no lumps. And the property location at the end of the road made for very quiet stay.
Higgins Lake August 2012
We had a wonderful week at Higgins Lake. Our whole family came ranging from 8 months to 92 years. Very comfortable accommodations and clean! What a pleasure to get up each morning and watch the lake from the deck! My grandchildren delighted in playing at the beach and the sandy bottom lake! The shallow water is great for little ones to walk and play. My 92 year old mother-in-law particularly enjoyed sitting out on the patio down by the lake watching her great-grandchildren in the water!
I'm glad you had a great time! This has been a wonderful summer, the water was warm and the weather was great too. Thank you for taking such nice care of the cottage.
Christmas in Michigan
Lovely cabin on the lake! Everything as advertised, and clean as a whistle. Very well equipped, and well maintained. Would highly recommend this property, and would certainly rent it again.
One trifling detail, scissors would be helpful. Found ourselves wrapping presents on Christmas Eve without a pair. Oops! :-)
I'am so glad to hear your time here went well! Thank you for staying at my cottage, you'r always welcome.
