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 Roscommon

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.

Owner was helpful and the rental online process was easy.

  • 4 of 5

Was easy to find, instructions were more than enough. We had to bring in a air bed because the couches we're not sufficient for sleeping all 10 people. Also we had to replace the soap for dishes,. Sinks and laundry,as there was not enough when we got there. Overall it was a nice stay and we would consider coming back thanks to the owners for all their help and letting us stay.

Comfortable, roomy and very close to state park

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being so close to Higgins State Park. It was a clean, roomy house for our family of five and dog. Kitchen was well-stocked -- had everything we needed! Nice fire pit for campfires at night. Comfortable living room for puzzle and watching Netflix. There was plenty of space and it was really nice to have access to water inflatables.

The con: The bedding was worn and the mattresses were soft; the pillows were worn/old.

Very prompt response time to all questions!

Another great trip to higgins lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time again this year. Thanks for the addition of the a/c units. Everything worked well . The cottage was very clean on our arrival. We also noted the newer pans. Nice additions. Beds were comfy. Would recommend considering some newer towels. The washer/dryer worked well also. We'll plan on returning again next year!

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!

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.
