The perfect get-away at popular Higgins Lake. This cottage has it all! Great location - 1 block from the lake, quiet neighborhood, excellent amenities, kid friendly, and everything you need for a great vacation. 1 Mile to gas/convenience store, 15 minutes to a variety of restaurants, full service grocery store, pizza and more. Summertime activities abound on the lake, as well as all the nature trails nearby, golf courses, and the Au Sable river (for kayaking, canoeing, and the best fly fishing in Michigan). Winter activities include cross country skiing (XC Headquarters is 1 mile away), snowmobiling, down hill skiing and tubing (Hanson Hills is just 15 minutes away, Boyne Mtn. and others are within 1 hour). Come stay with us for any season. Michigan vacations are the BEST!
We just purchased this cottage in 2013, we've been camping all around Michigan for years and this was our favorite all around spot. We spent much of our first year remodeling, furnishing, and decorating this cottage. Our goal is to rent it half-time, leaving time for us to enjoy it as well.

We can't say enough about the area. There is just so much to do in any season (boating, fishing, skiing, hunting, snowmobiling, etc.), and if you like to be lazy, it's great for that too! Higgins Lake is zoned to not become overly commercialized and there is a great deal of nature preservation here. As for the cottage itself, we have worked hard to make it cozy, there are no compromises with regards to quality furnishings or decor - it is truly a pleasure to spend time here. While most of the area is beautiful, this particular neighborhood is filled with families (if you are looking for a party zone you might want to look on the west side of the lake, or south in Houghton Lake). It is the only neighborhood with a beach and boat launch open to the public - but it doesn't get too crowded because there is no public parking nearby (our driveway is big enough for several cars and boat). We are members of a neighborhood association which maintains the boat launch and beach access so you don't have to go to a local park for access.
House comes with a keyless entry so you don't have to worry about losing keys and you can check-in/out at any hour. The house is well stocked with bath n beach towels, bikes, cooking supplies, linens, etc. All you really need to bring is your own clothes, food and toiletries (but we have extras of some of those too).
This cabin was great for our vacation! It was very clean, and had some games that we could play during rainy days. I only wish it had another bathroom, and another room for adults. This rental is perfect for a family with kids, and it's a short walk to the beach.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your vacation home. The cabin is exactly like the pictures. Very clean and neat and comfortable. Wonderful place to rest with the family after swimming, sight seeing or shopping all day long. We would not hesitate to return to such a pleasant place. Thanks again.
Very Clean, Lots of room, Many extras that are not provided at most rental properties, Close to beach, Best of all the owners were a pleasure to work with and everything went smooth throughout the whole process!!!!!!! Would stay there again!!!
Higgins Lake is home to year around enjoyment of Northern Michigan at it's best! Enjoy the beautiful spring fed lake with crystal clear water, sandy beach in the summer, numerous hiking and cross-country ski trails for year-round enjoyment, several downhill ski and golf resorts, and Michigan's finest fly-fishing on the south branch of the Au Sable river. This small town is uniquely zoned to preserve nature and minimize commercial development. A fantastic get-away only 3 hours north of Detroit.
