About The Owner

Our parents purchased 'the cottage' in 1956, and we can't fathom giving it up!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1956

Why The Owner chose Higgins Lake

Could there be a better place for kids to spend their summers? We don't think so!

What makes this cottage unique

We have so many special & happy memories of spending the day in and on the water, playing board games on rainy days, & roasting marshmallows on the bonfire.

Great Comfortable Family Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5
The Flynn Family Cottage is an ideal place for a large family stay on Higgins Lake (or a smaller family). Actually, in our 30+ years going to Higgins, it is one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in.

On this trip there were eight of us; my wife and me, two sons with their wives and two grandchildren. Everyone had a lot of room to move around in without bumping into one another.

The cottage layout is great. The very large kitchen is separated from the living room. The living room is spacious with comfortable seating for everyone. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The highlights of this location include a long private entry road through the woods that gave it a north woods feel. The beach and fire pit are great. The lake at this point had a smooth sandy bottom and the grandkids (3 & 5) could walk out beyond the end of the dock and it would only be up to their chest. At night on the dock, the stars were magnificent and you could see the Milky Way.

We had a great time and highly recommend the Flynn Family Cottage. We’re going back in 2016!!

Perfect Family Spot

  • 5 of 5
What a great spot for us!! There were 4 Adult and 4 children under the age of 5. The weather was great and the sandy beach was perfect for them. The shallow parts where we could go out on our boat a park was perfect too. There is swimmers itch so be sure to towel dry well after getting out of the water!!! Cabin was perfect for sleeping and had everything we needed inside. Very clean! We did have one rainy day and there is not much to do around there when that happens besides play games indoors. Cable would of been nice to have besides 6 channels. But everything else was great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We're happy you enjoyed your stay and found the Flynn cottage clean & comfortable. We're looking into cable television adjustments, and appreciate your feedback. We will add to our video library, and put together a list of free or inexpensive Rainy Day-type activities to add to our info binder...like drawing & coloring, card games, encyclopedia games (Name as many rivers, mountains, Presidents as you can...) & jigsaw puzzles inside the cottage, or short road trips to Hartwick Pines, CCC Museum, Firemen's Memorial, Pine Theater, Call of the Wild Museum, Pirate's Cove Fun Center, & Arnie's Arts & Crafts, along with nearby 'goodie' destinations, like Good Times old fashioned candy store, Nibbles soft serve ice cream, Little Cottage hard ice cream, and Higgins Lake t-shirt/sweatshirt/gift shop, Trappers.
In 58 years, not one family member has ever gotten swimmer's itch. We fervently discourage feeding the adorable but increasing number of ducks on the lake, and recommend a shower after a day in the water, along with frequent laundering of swimwear.
