Perfection on Higgins Lake

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an awesome adventure on Higgins Lake, this is the cottage! We stayed for nearly 2 weeks and it felt like home. Even if the weather wasn't cooperating, we had all the amenities of home and a beautiful vista of the lake - so relaxing. When the weather was great, we hit the water and used the kayak which was wonderful. My little terrier loved it too! Great neighbors on both sides and overall such a welcoming and comfortable cottage for vacation and enjoying the best lake in Michigan! Exceeded all expectations.

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The property is well-kept and well-stocked. We found everything we could have desired in the kitchen, from pots and pans to coffee maker and toaster.

The area is very friendly, we felt welcome everywhere we went. Friday Fish Fry at the Silver Dollar is recommended; the cod was spectacular. The Landmark does a great breakfast.

I would love to be able to stay at this property for a summer!

The view is worth everything...

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 7 week old newborn and 2 dogs had an extended weekend stay in late August 2016 here at the Higgins Lake Cottage. We love Higgins lake and wanted to be on the water this visit. The view is amazing especially at sunset and sunrise. I was up super early with the baby and we would go out onto the deck and sit to watch the sunrise. There is a nice sized yard and a fire pit. The outdoor furniture was in excellent condition which is important when you spend most of your time outdoors (at least we did!). Plenty of parking and close to everything we needed. The cottage had everything we needed and was very welcoming. We did see a few bugs in the house so it may need a spray, but your up north and in wooded areas so it can be expected. We were comfortable and cozy and would definitely consider staying at this place again next summer! Owner was very attentive when we had a minor issue arise with the hot water heater. We just had to reset the breaker and she explained how to do it over the phone. Thank you for letting us make some great first memories with our new little girl (and pups too who went swimming for their first time!)

Wonderful, cozy, and clean

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had 2 days of mom and dad time and then came all the children! It was perfect for both size parties (2 and 6). Very clean! Diane was super nice and accommodating. The lake views and sunsets are unreal!! Great party store down the street w very friendly people.

Thanks for a great week!

Great cottage for couples or small families with senior adults.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my senior parents, daughter in law, and grand daughter the last week of September. My parents do not get around well anymore and the property was perfect. My mother has to use a cane or walker and she was able to get move freely all the way to the lake. Many memories were made that week. Cottage was well stocked with everything we could need. Loved the way it was decorated. Fabulous view of the lake. Thank you so much for helping to make my parents 61st wedding anniversary special!
