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

Nice cottage and location

  • 4 of 5

Clean rustic cottage on Higgins Lake. Nice pine furniture throughout. Kitchen works well, with good pots and pans. Mattress was comfortable. Large family room area for group gatherings. Bathroom needs updating, but was adequate. The owner is very nice!

Perfect Cottage for us

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Sparr's Cottage. It was our second stay there and we can't wait to have a third! The lake front access is unbeatable! The neighbor and caretaker, Mike, is a huge asset and always available for questions.

Great cottage! Secluded property, roomie for large family or 3 couples, great view from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great cottage and we had a great experience. The pictures do not do it justice. The cottage is roomie and can accommodate a large family or 3 couples. The main living space and kitchen/dining area is larger than the pictures let on. The property is big (larger than other properties around) and secluded. The view from the house is slightly blocked from the cottage, but beautiful once you are down the hill by the deck/beach water area. The caretaker is there to meet you when you arrive and very helpful at anytime during your stay. We used the pedal boat multiple time as it gets you out on the water for a better view. I recommend this place!
