Golf, Hiking, Michigan Fireman Memorial Site, CCC museum, Gahagan Nature center, Ausable River canoeing &fishing, Hartwick Pines logging museum, are a few local attractions.

The cottages have a romantic history being built one for each daughter and passed down in the family. Many newlyweds have spent their honeymoon or first months of their married life in the cottages. Some families have returned for years only to eventually buying their own place, or brought their grandchildren.

Pictures in the cottage show early life at Higgins Lake when cutting ice from the lake, drawn in by horses & sled, in the winter and kept in an ice house to be used in the summer as the only means of refrigeration. The property goes back five generations to the early 1900's When the subdivision was purchased and the first houses were built.
