About Lanier Pratt

Thank you for viewing our family home. We have been visiting Michigan since the 1970's. Most of that time until 2004 was spent in the Grand Traverse Bay area. Since that time we have enjoyed many nights at Higgins Lake.

We plan to continue experiencing all that Higgins Lake has to offer for years to come, but scheduling will required us to leave the house unused most of this summer. This is your opportunity to take advantage of our limited time this summer.

Lanier Pratt purchased this house in 2004

Why Lanier Pratt chose Higgins Lake

The house is very homey and has all the characteristics of a summer cottage including a light house design throughout. You're a long stones through from the lake where you wade out for almost 50 yards in the crystal clear water that is still only up to your waste.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at this cottage. It was clean and comfortable with room for my entire family. The kids had plenty of room to play. It is only a short walk to Higgins Lake., or less than a five-minute drive to the State Park. The kitchen was well equipped and everything was very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and hope to return again one day. Lanier was very responsive and helpful. Thanks!

Great location

Great location for Higgins Lake. The kitchen was complete with everything needed for our stay. The beds weren't very comfortable, but we did ok. Easy to follow directions to get to the house, very safe area, nice neighbors.

Great little get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This house is adorable! Comfortable and roomy. Has everything you need. The owners answered all my crazy questions quickly and patiently. There is a nice front porch with a chiminea for a cozy little fire, or in the side yard a patio table with nice comfy chairs and a big fire pit. Everything was clean and well cared for. And just a short walk down the road to a little beach area or a 5 minute ride to N. Higgins Lake State Park and nice floats in the garage you can use! It was a perfect spot for a 2 family get away! We are already planning our trip back for next year! Thank you Lanier Pratt and Family :)

Higgins Lake Beach - Public
Car: recommended

Higgins Lake is rated one of the most beautiful lakes in the country. There are 2 state parks nearby - North Higgins Lake St. Park - within 2 miles & South Higgins Lake St. Park - about 10 miles. Both have great beaches, grilling facilities, play areas & boat launches. This is a great area to relax & rejuvenate after a long, cold winter. It's a very relaxing atmosphere with friendly neighbors & lots of activities.
