Great For Summer deck drinks and bonfires! Close to everything and the lake!

Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
This cute little cabin is perfect for an overnight stay or extended vacation and cheaper than the hotels in town. It has a loft bedroom upstairs with a queen bed overlooking the living room. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a double bunk on the bottom and a single bunk on the top. There is a double bed in the pull out couch in the living room if you need extra sleeping spaces.

The bathroom has just been redone with a spacious shower to wind down after those long days on the trails and Lake. There is a lighted deck out back with a 6 person table and two zero gravity chairs to relax and enjoy some drinks or BBQ on with the family along with a fire pit for night time entertainment during the summer and fall.

There is lake access with a beach with bathrooms and a fishing pier at the Lakeview park at the end of the neighborhood/road. It's about a 5 min. walk or less than a 30 second drive. There are three marinas (Lyman's, Brians, and Heights marina) with pontoon and boat rentals within a two minute drive and a few more within 10 minutes and the DNR boat launch is a mile down the road. The home is also within a 30 second drive of Lakeland recreation with go karts, batting cages, putt putt, and other games. The home is also only a 15 minute drive from the famous and beautiful south Higgins Lake state park as well as only a 20 minute drive to a canoe, kayak, and tubing livery on the Ausable (Campbell's canoes). The home is also within minutes of many restaurants and golf courses.

The kitchen is small, so there is only a spot for two people to eat although there is a six person table on the deck as well during the summer and fall as TV trays provided for the living room.

Amenities include propane grill, coffee maker, stocked kitchen, six person outdoor table, fire pit, air conditioning upstairs and downstairs, washer and dryer, Netflix, Amazon prime TV, as well as network and streaming channels with my Uverse account in the living room, but hey; you're here to enjoy the outdoors, not watch TV. Linens and Bathroom towels are provided.

There is access to the lake at the end of the neighborhood during the winter months for your snowmobile and UTV and within 5 minutes of the trailheads.

*The home is sanitized and deep cleaned after every stay *

Perfecttly Located
Cottage was perfectly located near restaurants, Houghton Lake DNR State boat launch, and the cottage was only 12 minutes from the MI State Park and boat launch on Higgins Lake. The cottage's back yard was quiet, private and ample enough space for cooking, eating and campfires (campfire wood was included in the stay). We didn't have a need nor a want as this cozy cottage supplied everything you could think of. Overall, our stay was an enjoyable and comfortable one. A million thanks to our hosts.
