About Sally

I am currently living with my husband of 51 years in the Detroit area.

We have our own business a flower shop & greenhouse, which we are very active in. We have 4 grown children and 8 grandchildren. We love our life and our family.

Sally purchased this cabin in 1982

Why Sally chose Higgins Lake

My parents had a cottage on Higgins Lake. I grew up spending my summers there. My husband fell in love with the lake. When we had enough money we purchase this piece of property. We plan to retire here.

What makes this cabin unique

Sits on a bluff with a private but beautiful view of the lake. Lots of trees. Just sitting on the patio and watching the lake is restful way of spending your day.

When you are rested there are plenty of things to keep you busy. Swimming biking, boating, walking.

If you bring your boat you can moor it in the your own private 100ft of lakefront

We feel so lucky to have gotten to spend the long weekend at this cottage. True Northern Michigan Cottage feel on a beautiful part of a gorgeous lake. Also, we had 2 young children, and the home was stocked with lots of games and toys. My only regret is that the cottage is so popular that it looks like the rest of the summer weekends are booked. We are already looking forward to staying again in the future.

All You Could Ask For !

  • 5 of 5

My extended weekend stay at the Sparr's cottage was exceptional. There's no other way to put it. It is extremely accommodating with everything you could ask for . It is a beautiful cottage and nicely decorated. Great place for children of all ages with many extra's provided to keep them busy having fun. Any season of the year the Sparr cottage is equipped to provide an exceptional stay. Everything about it was terrific, from our rental requirements to hands on help and information to guarantee a smooth, fun and relaxing getaway. I would certainly return to the Sparr cottage again and would highly recommend this to all who would be interested !!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL time while staying here! The cottage was fully stocked with everything you need, from kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies, and tons of firewood! It felt very "up north" which we loved! Very very helpful neighbor who helped out, which was truly appreciated! Right on the lake, with a beautiful fire pit, paddle boat, paddle board. Will definitely be going back!

Nice Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The cottage was wonderful, we relaxed on the beach, and had fires in the fire pit. My kids had a ball!

The first night was very warm, and it would have helped to have more windows in the house that could open up.

Thank you! We hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. I am sorry about the windows. I will make sure that Mike goes over and gives a demo on opening windows with every guest. They all work except the dining room. There are no screens for that room and no way of opening them. Sally

A great find on the North end!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing time. The kitchen was well outfitted for what ever level of meal prep one would need. Beds and linen were clean and comfortable. Handy little BBQ area but the Weber kettle has seen better days. Great lake location and the boat launch so close makes boating a snap.

Thanks again for a great time Sally.


P.S. You do need some new door mats and the lake side screen door needs repaired.

Owner's Response: Jon, Thank you for your response. I am looking into new mats for when I come up next week. Which ones are bad? I know the barbecue is old, but it works. We don't advertise for a new barbecue, we also supplied you with free wood for the fire pit. we do not advertise for that. There are a lot of freebees that we add on just for our guests. we try very hard to keep you happy. I hope you had a good time. Thank you Sally
