Property description

We've got the perfect family cottage retreat for you! 100 foot private sandy beach, crystal clear water that's shallow a long way out, dock, plenty of yard space for playing & relaxing, comfortable, spacious 4 bedroom, 2 bath cottage with windows galore, offering gorgeous views of the 6th Most Beautiful Lake in the World.

Your cares will begin to melt away the moment you turn down our secluded & wooded 600 foot driveway. By the time you reach the cottage & see lovely Higgins Lake, you'll be in full relaxation mode.

Gaze at the lake through picture/bay windows in the great room, or gaze at the woods through picture windows in the sunny, full, eat-in kitchen. We offer beds for 8, plus a pull-out sofa for 2 more. Each bathroom has its own window & shower, one with tub. Bed linens, kitchen, bath & beach towels, cookware, tableware & glassware for a crowd, as well as paper products to get you started are provided.

The four separate bedrooms include a queen bed master (new mattress for 2015), queen bed lakeside (new mattress for 2015), two twin beds lakeside, and a pair of single-size bunk beds. Each bedroom has two windows for enjoying refreshing breezes and falling asleep to the lapping of the waves along the shore, a chest of drawers, closet, and alarm clock.

Outside, enjoy two cement patios, a fire pit, a gas & charcoal grill, picnic table, even a basketball hoop, & those all-important Adirondack chairs for just chillin' by the lake.

New for 2016! Wifi Internet!

Your whole family will agree, the Flynn cottage is the place to be!
