About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathrooms, Maximum capacity: 8

* PLEASE NOTE* Our summer weeks typically book 1 year to 6 months in advance. At this time, our only available 2017 summer weeks are in June, and the last week in August. We will open our 2018 calendar around Memorial Day.

Our spacious, contemporary, charming blue cottage offers everything necessary for a perfect lakefront vacation. Our property has 50 ft of direct water frontage (NO road between our home and the water). The incredible view, large waterside deck with gas grill, sizable yard, and built in fire pit are just a few of the amenities you'll enjoy! And unlike some rentals, there is no additional cleaning fee for full-week summer (Memorial wknd thru Labor Day wknd) rentals...it is included in the total cost. For "non-summer" rentals, there is a $100 cleaning fee.

Owner info

About the owner: We have a family-owned cottage on Higgins Lake just around the corner from Big Blue. My husband grew up vacationing at the family-cottage much of his summers, and we are now blessed to have our children experience this as well.

Why the Owner Chose Higgins Lake, MI, USA:
Our property resides in an quiet, family-oriented area of nicer cottages/homes, and is intended for family gatherings and nice, vacation getaways. It is not to be used for raucous, loud parties. Big Blue will be a place you and your family want to come back to yearly - a place where memories are made!
