Thank you for a great family week
Awesome on all counts with exception of drop to water and lack of beach/ sand
12 of us stayed recently at this property and had a fantastic week! The house was comfortable for all of us and had plenty of living/hang out space. The patio is fantastic with lots of seating, a fire pit, and fantastic views of the lake. Our younger children had no problem with the water because it’s fairly shallow for a long time and they could play and walk out easily with no concern. This cottage had everything we needed and it’s an easy walk to the marina to rent a pontoon or jet skis.
Perfect property for large family gatherings!
Absolutely perfect property!!! Had 12 adults and 2 kids stay with us in this house and never once felt like we were on top of each other. Plenty of beds and bathrooms for everyone. The view and dock were perfect. We spent most of our time hanging out on the patio and dock. I would highly recommend this house for larger families. Couldn’t have been better all around experience.
Great house but not nice owner
The property is wonderful. Great amenities. I was disappointed that the owner did not give us instructions on how to get in the property having emailed us the morning that we were in route. I was also disappointed in an accusatory text that I received accusing of having left the house a mess when we had actually kept the house very clean and followed detailed instructions about stripping the beds and so forth. We will look elsewhere when we stay at the lake next time.
I am happy you had a nice vacation at our lake house. I apologize that you didn't receive my previous email before the day of your arrival. We had death in the family so I was preoccupied.. I thought that since you have stayed there before you knew all the procedures. I'm really sorry. As far as the condition of the house after leaving, as I mentioned in my text that your reservation was for 4 people so, that is how I scheduled my cleaning gal. She was surprised to see that more than for 4 guests had stayed there and therefore, it took her a lot longer to get the job done which delayed the next guests from checking in. I normally have 2 -3 cleaning gals depending on how many guests...just an unfortunate miscommunication. Thank you for doing you part. Hope you come back! Have great rest of the summer! Cathy
Perfect setting to gather with family!!!
We loved everything about this property. The house is spacious and beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. Higgins Lake was gorgeous and it was so easy to rent a pontoon boat for the day. We hope to return!!!
We spent a week at this beautiful house on Higgins Lake in August 2016. It was spacious and a perfect fit for the nine of us: two senior citizens, three adults and four children. The owner, Cathy, was wonderful to deal with and had family meet us upon our arrival at the house with keys and answers to our questions. We rented a pontoon boat, paddle boards and kayaks for the week. Days were spent swimming and boating and evenings were spent on the patio having dinner, playing games and sitting around the fire pit. The sunsets were spectacular. If you are looking for a fun-filled, stress-free vacation then this is your spot.
Outside: large patio has 2 patio tables and chairs, grill, and bonfire. Grassy areas in front and back of house. The paved parking/driveway area will accomodate 5 vehicles.
Take a walk down the private dock and lounge or swim in the crystal clear water with sandy bottom.
Evergreen Market and Dairy Queen only a short 5 minute walk away. B & B Marina nearby to rent
boats, jet skiis, tubes, etc. Cross-Country Ski Headquarters is 1.5 miles away featuring great X-C
ski trails that also make great summer running, hiking & biking trails. The Village of Roscommon is 6 miles away where you will find canoeing on the AuSable River. Of course superb fishing and
sight seeing! Premium golf courses nearby. Only 100 miles from the Mackinaw Bridge.
Absolute perfect location!
