Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at the cottage and Higgins lake. Cottage is rustic, but clean, fully furnished, and location is great. The beach area is shallow and nice for kids; fire pit and free wood was awesome; large lot across the street. Plenty of things to do around the area...hiking, fishing, golfing, canoeing and tubing along the Au Sable , boat rentals,...or just read a book on the dock. Some nice restaurants in Roscommon village. There is a "small" street between the cottage and the lake...but it's just a typical subdivision street...not busy, with people walking their dogs and driving their golf carts...there is very light car was not a problem for us. Would consider staying there again!

Beautiful views and location; great cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sons, boyfriend, and I really enjoyed our first stay at Higgins Lake! The lake is beautiful! We brought our boat for tubing and fishing, and had a great time. The views from the cabin were great, and it was so relaxing to sit on the swing, looking out on the lake. The cabin had everything we needed. The updated bathroom was very nice. I would recommend going to the Silver Dollar (can walk to it). Nice people, huge portions.

Great location, comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a home and the experience could not have been better. Everything was as advertised and all the reviews I read, except that one negative one, were spot on. The unhappy renters were angry about the roadway between the house and the lakefront parcel. There were cars on occasion but it's no different than a kid playing anywhere outside; you have to be watchful of cars pulling into driveways, etc. Our experience was wonderful. We rented a pontoon boat from B&B marina and that was really fun, too. Would love to stay there again sometime.

Great family rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 3 children (and dog!) had a great time at your cottage. They loved playing in the water and then roasting marshmallows by the fire pit at night. Nicely set-up with everything we needed and a very pretty location.

Beautiful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

I spent my childhood summers at Higgins Lake and we love it there. This cottage is great year-round because it has access to the lake for warmer months and a fireplace for cooler months. It has everything we need for an excellent vacation. Great location too - close to areas stores and restaurants.

Wonderful Vacation Cottage at Higgins Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage! Our children loved the sandbox, swimming, boating, and having campfires every night. My husband and I loved the view and sitting on the swing facing the water. I would highly recommend staying at this cottage which was very clean and cozy.
