BIG BLUE - CHARMING 3 BEDROOM, 2.5 BATH HIGGINS LAKE LAKEFRONT COTTAGE

Higgins Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Our spacious, contemporary, charming blue cottage offers everything necessary for a perfect lakefront vacation. Our property has 50 ft of direct water frontage (NO road between our home and the water). The incredible view, large waterside deck with gas grill, sizable yard, and built in fire pit are just a few of the amenities you'll enjoy!

* In addition to our advertised pricing, we are willing to rent Big Blue for a month (which consists of 4 consecutive weeks beginning and ending on a Saturday) at a $500 discount during the summer. So for a month during the summer of 2014 (4 consecutive wks), the cost would be $7200 instead of $7700.

** 2015 High Season Rates (Memorial Wknd thru Labor Day wknd) will be published soon at a rate $2065/week with a monthly rental (4 consecutive weeks) of $7760 ($500 savings).

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

We have a family-owned cottage on Higgins Lake just around the corner from Big Blue. My husband grew up vacationing at the family-cottage much of his summers, and we are now blessed to have our children experience this as well.

Our property resides in an quiet, family-oriented area of nicer cottages/homes, and is intended for family gatherings and nice, vacation getaways. It is not to be used for raucous, loud parties. Big Blue will be a place you and your family want to come back to yearly - a place where memories are made!

I must say I was hesitant when I booked Big Blue because it had no reviews. I tend to rely on reviews when I book a place. When my family and I arrived there I must say we were pleasantly surprised. The place was perfect, very well laid out and very clean. The bedrooms were situated great for our situation, separate from each other but still close. Right on the water of course with great areas to swim. Some rocky areas but mostly sand bottom. If you know Higgins lake, it is shallow at the shoreline all around the lake. Higgins is a beautiful lake and HUGE but if you want to bring a boat with a deep hull you may have trouble at the shoreline. I highly recommend staying here. I would not hesitate at all coming back here with my family.

Owner's Response: Marc & Colleen - We are very glad you were happily surprised with Big Blue! We love our home and strive to keep it fresh and beautiful. We just had a concrete sidewalk poured from the deck to the dock, and are having the yard graded and seeded for a nice plush lawn next spring! So your next visit should be even nicer!!

It was very clean and owners were nice to work with. The accomodations were just as pictured and met all expectations. Our family enjoyed the place very much. We would definitely recommend the place and would return again in the future. Houghton Lake is only a 20 minute drive and has lots of activities such as golf, go carts, mini golf, shopping and many restaurants to choose from.
Owner's Response: Scott & Mary - we are so glad you chose Big Blue for your vacation...and truly loved your sharing your family photos from your stay! That's what it's all about - creating family memories! Hope you will visit again! Renee

Very enjoyable week stay at Big Blue in Higgins Lake Michigan. The lakefront cottage was in excellent condition, super clean with everything you could possible need. Communication with the owners was excellent from beginning to end. Without a doubt, I would recommend to anybody, adults or families for a great vacation.
