About Elizabeth Linn

This cabin is a family owned cabin. We have enjoyed this lake for over 20 years and want to share our love for the cabin and the lake with you!

Elizabeth Linn purchased this cabin in 1986

Why Elizabeth Linn chose Higgins Lake

The cabin has been passed through family generations serving as a meeting place for our large family. We enjoy the quiet neighborhood, the sunsets and boating on the lake. The large lot and open floor plan accommodates large groups comfortably. Enjoy our 125 feet of beautiful shoreline, private dock and a 14 foot by 14 foot sandy beach area next to the waters edge.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the views of the lake from the cabin and especially the nightly bursting sunsets. The turquoise blue, crystal clear water of the lake is always inviting.

Fun, homey, great character,

  • 4 of 5

My family had an awesome time at Higgins Lake. The cabin was homey and stayed cool during the day. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably. Kitchen was stashed with cooking utensils. The kids had a great time in the water! The water was clean and shallow. We enjoyed our stay at Leap In Retreat!

Great time for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August and everyone had a great time! Plenty of room in the cottage and was also on a large lot. Lots of room for the little ones to run around and a nice sandy beach area for sand castles. Kitchen was stocked with pots,pans and pretty much everything for a home cooked meal. Great time was had by all, thank you!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Leap in Retreat cottage on Higgins Lake. It was like having our own private lodge! The pictures on the web page do not tell how nice it really is. Great layout - The gathering spaces for dining and relaxing are large. The kitchen was also large and had plenty of work space and a counter to sit at. There was also a pantry room for storing food, etc. All of the appliances seemed new, plenty of dishes and silverware, a big refrigerator and the owners even provided a tool box and spare light bulbs. My bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for showers and dishes. The owners created a nice sandy play area at the waters edge for children to play in and the water was very clean and shallow. The fire pit was a nice feature that we used almost every night. I would also recommend bringing your bikes as the streets in the area are paved and there are lots of areas around the lake to explore. I highly recommend this property as once you stay here you will be spoiled! We hope to stay here again!!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were very comfortable. Recent updates had been made, linens were new, the kitchen was very well equipped to prepare meals, there was plenty space and charm. We especially enjoyed the enclosed porch area. Our sons enjoyed having their own bunk house. Outdoor furniture was adequate to accommodate all 10 of us at meal time, plus a couple extra dining guests. The owners were accessible and responded quickly to any questions. Great experience. Great memories! And of course Higgins Lake is amazing. Beautiful and clear!

Car: necessary

The Higgins Lake area is not heavily developed commercially. Enjoying the lake from sunrise to sunset is our favorite activity. Houghton Lake is approximately 10 miles south which offers additional shopping, movie theater, putt putt golf and go cart track.
