Sam-o-Set cabin

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is close and convenient to the lake. It was clean and it was comfortable sleeping for 4. Six was a small issue with the blow up mattress taking up a good portion of the living room. It is your typical "cabin up north." If you have a trailered boat it's a great location for enjoying Higgin's Lake. The owner was very easy to work with and was quick to answer any questions or concerns.

Nice cottage

Cottage was very orderly and CLEAN. We had everything we needed for our week stay. The location is very close to the public beach area. It was very convenient for walking or biking. This is a great area. We would definitely stay here again.
