About Annette

I take pride in our beautiful, well decorated, extremely clean cottage and work extremely hard to keep it looking brand new :)

As one of our guests wrote in our guest book (located at the cottage), "Annette you should be extremely proud of your place. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back." The guest book is filled with years of wonderful comments and places our guest have been to.

Annette purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Annette chose Michigan

Higgins Lake was once rated the 6th most beautiful lake in the world. With its deep, (stunning different blue colors) clear waters with a mile of shoreline at the South Higgins Lake State Park, makes this a lake you want to spend the day at. Whether you want to swim, go jet skiing or rent a boat to enjoy for the day and go tubbing or water skiing, this is the perfect lake! The opportunities are endless fishing, boating, swimming (in the winter, people enjoy ice fishing and snowmobiling). Higgins Lake runs into Houghton Lake. Come and enjoy the beauty of Higgins Lake and spend time with your family and friends!

What makes this cottage unique

You will enjoy the many benefits our place has to offer and one of the top is the cleanliness!! Next, is the feeling of 'home' as our renters have stated to us. The cottage has beautiful Amish hand-made log furniture throughout including queen log beds & kitchen tabIe. I truly believe in getting away with your family and friends and doing activities together that don't seem to happen in everyday busy lives we all lead, so you will find games to play, some books to read, movies to watch together and if its a rainy day (playstation to play together). What makes our place nice is the fact that I try really hard to make it 'feel like home'. We have some toilet paper, garbage bags, napkins, usually paper towels, and sometimes even coffee. Please feel free to call me or email me with any questions you may have regarding this wonderful, clean, place to enjoy with your family and friends. To help keep the place so clean we do not allow smoking or pets.

Summer 2017 ------Just added premium Art Van couches for the family room!! Don't forget to enjoy our gas grill and eat outside on our wrought iron patio set with umbrella. We also have 4 colorful wrought iron patio chairs to sit and enjoy in the front of the house on our nice spacious deck.

Going above and beyond to make our place super nice, clean and comfortable!!

This was a very nice and clean rental property. Lots of room for the 4 of us girls. They had a nice sized TV, DVD, CD, Playstation, alot of board games which we used every night. A grill and fire pit (plus wood) outside on the patio. I can't think of one thing we needed.........it was very well supplied. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay. It was about 1 mile to Higgins Lake and close to Houghton Lake also. Also about 100 miles to Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. Take the ferry across and enjoy yourself. Lots of fudge and good food and plenty of scenery for taking pictures. Also the horse carriage tours. Very well worth the money to stay here.



My Response

Thank-you so much for your review. We take pride in our cottage and strive to make it feel just like home. The cottage is located in a perfect area with Higgins Lake South State Park located a mile away, canoe rentals in Roscommon, hike the trails at Marl Lake (located across the street from Higgins). Beautiful Macinaw 1 & 1/2 hours north of the cottage, Traverse City about an hour from the cottage or hike the dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes. We welcome more fantastic renters to build memories with their family and friends at our higginslakecottage.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The home was as described, very clean! It even smelled nice! No musty smell. The location of the home is in a beautiful area. We took many walks in the neighborhood and drank in the nature. It was also very conveniently located to Higgins lake, only a mile away. To owner was very responsive and great to work with. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home for a long weekend and it exceeded our expectations. It is set in a quiet and peaceful location, surrounded by trees and wildlife. There are ice cream and pizza shops around the corner and South Higgins Lake State Park just down the road. Inside, the home was spotless and stocked with everything we could have needed for our stay. The décor was charming with bears and moose, which added to the "Up North Cabin" feel. We spent a lot of time playing games on the huge dining table and reading books in the sunny entry room. Annette was a pleasure to talk to and wonderful to work with. She made sure that we comfortable and happy during our stay. We will definitely stay here during our next trip to the Higgins Lake area.

Very clean cottage. Wonderful surroundings. Close to anything you could think of to do.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this wonderful cottage. Higgins Lake State Park is beautiful and a very short drive away. Property was in a great quiet neighborhood with all paved roads and very easy to get to. Plenty of room for a boat trailer or toy trailer for the trails that are surrounding the area. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be back!

Spring golf getaway

  • 4 of 5

Every spring, a group of friends trek up north to enjoy the golf courses. We need a secondary home to help house all of us. This was an ideal cottage. Clean, spacious and great location. We had some issues getting the TV to work and there was only 2 twin beds instead of the 3 in the ad, but overall, a very good stay.

Owner's Response: Thank-you Greg for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed our cottage, but am sorry for any inconvenience. I always welcome renters to call me with any questions they have. The cottage does have 3 twin beds in the half loft. There is a trundle bed that has a twin bed that slides under it. Most likely the reason the TV didn't work is that the input was set to watch the dvd player rather than the satellite TV. We are grateful to have renters such as yourself who enjoy our cottage and hope you and your golf friends will come back next year.

Winter Fun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The home is very clean and comfortable. The location allowed us easy access to sledding at Mt. Frederic and day trips to Grayling and Traverse City. We came to escape a snowless and dreary Chicago winter and the kids were thrilled to play in the 30 inches of snow pack. After fun in the snow, we enjoyed relaxing at the house, playing board games and Lego Star Wars on the Playstation. The owner was very responsive with communications and easy to work with. Thanks for the great accommodations!

Spring Skiing

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and quiet house, with most every amenity you need. The neighborhood is quiet, no snowmobile noise while we were there. No wi-fi, but we easily connected to a hotspot via cell phone, and had good internet access that way. This was our second stay here, and we'll be back. The owner is very helpful and accommodating; very available when we had a question about the house upon arrival, and really goes out of her way to assist our travel plans. When we had to cancel a weekend on very short notice due to illness, she offered other dates that were available, which we will be using.
