Higgins Lake was recently voted MSN Real Estate's Top 10 Locations for Boat Owners!
Enjoy our newly remodeled cottage, just a short one mile drive to crystal clear Higgins Lake.
Our cozy cottage is nestled in a lush, green forest setting, and is one mile from the sixth most beautiful lake in the world, Higgins Lake and just a few miles north of the largest inland lake in Michigan, Houghton Lake. We have local trails to explore for snowmobiles, quads, dirtbikes, ATV's etc. just around the corner and only 4 miles from the snowmobile trail head at the US-127 exit 201 that we can ride the sleds too. We have a front deck with a Weber gas grill and furniture out back to help you relax and soak up the summer sun. We have a large double lot with wooded lots on both sides that provide a peaceful private up north setting along with a stone bonfire pit out back for roasting s'mores under the stars.
Gerrish Twp. park is a local public beach and boat launch that is one mile away. It offers excellent swimming with a sandy bottom. Beach-goers can enjoy picnic tables, a gazebo, several grills for cooking out, a jungle gym for kids, plus public restrooms and a rinsing station and is accessible by car.
South State Park and Campground is just 2 miles away which also offers a public beach and boat launch as well as camping.
Local pizza from Andy's Pizzeria & Ice cream is less than a mile away as well as Nibbles Ice cream and a fully stocked party store.
The cottage sleeps 6 comfortably with option of 8 if double up on the two full beds. We've had 3 10 yr old girls sleep in one full bed a few times while there were spare beds available (don't ask me why?). It has a cozy family cottage interior, and offers many amenities to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
With the cottage being located on the south end of Higgins Lake and conveniently located between US-127 & I-75 trips to Traverse City, Petoskey, Cheboygan and even Mackinaw Island are recommended day trips (each within 1.5 hours drive).+ More
