Amazing Vacation Home!
This vacation home had everything we needed! It was so laid back and comfortable. The owners, Val and Dana are exceptional and really wanted to make sure we had a great time. Our 9 year old son had water adventures every day (ALL day). The weather was perfect and swimming, snorkeling, tubing and fishing was awesome! Wonderful life time memories were had!!!
Best Higgins Lake Get Away
WoW!! Best place to stay on Higgins Lake, and the pontoon boat was great fun!! Cottage had everything you need, looking forward to another week on the lake in 2020.
very clean and great location on the water beautiful sunsets
The home owners are great people, great place to take your family.
Beautiful lake, cute cottage
Higgins Lake was clean, beautiful, and perfect for tubing, swimming, and fishing. The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. It is small, but we were able to use the attached garage for excess coolers, fishing poles, etc. which was very convenient. The owners are very friendly and helpful, quick responses to a few questions I had before and during our stay. We really enjoyed our vacation here and I would recommend it.
Be aware that the water is super shallow here, you could walk 100 yards out and only be 3 feet deep and probably 300 yards to get to 6 feet or so. Mostly sandy with some rounded rocks, not sharp. I preferred to wear sandals or water shoes in the water but both my kids were barefoot in the lake all week. The shallow water is fantastic for wading or anyone with little kids, but a bit inconvenient for swimming and boating. In a boat, there are a few big rocks in the shallow water so you have to be slow and careful, it takes a while to get out to the dropoff where you can drop your propeller and go.
The only unexpected drawback to this cottage was the loud sump/grinder pump located in a closet off the second bedroom. Every time the toilet flushed or any water ran at all, the pump kicked on and it was loud - like hair dryer loud. We didn't really notice until we put our kids to bed in that bedroom and they had to listen to it kick on every few minutes all evening while my husband and I showered, used the toilet, and washed dishes for a couple hours before bed. After that we made sure we all showered up and finished dishes before the kids went to sleep and it was OK. That room might not work well for light sleepers or folks who want to go to bed early or sleep late in the morning if there are other people in the cottage running any water. My husband and I weren't bothered by it in the master bedroom with the door shut.
Great place- just recommend picnic table in backyard
Everything we needed was there.
It was a great location, a few things would have been nice to know is the hard water, and the washer and dryer really are not usable due to destroying clothes. Also the boat mooring was right next to the dock so it was unusable. Mother nature was not so kind with the weather for our stay. Very nice and clean cabin.
Thank you for the rating. After receiving your feedback, we installed a water softener, which took care of the hard water.
Our non-smoking Cottage located 2 minutes walking to the grocery and hardware stores and about 4 minutes walking to the Old Point Comfort Marina; 5 minutes drive to Higgins Lake South State Park; golf courses and great places to eat.
