This modern rustic cabin is a very open concept with room for everyone at what is billed as the 6th most beautiful lake in the world. It has Caribbean blue waters and a sandy bottom. With over 10,000 acres of crystal clear water, the possibilities of year-round activity are endless. The cabin has end-of-the-road access less than a 5-minute walk from the cabin.

There are miles of trails for ORV and skiing and snowmobile use. Hiking trails abound in the nearby forests and state parks.

Come sit around the cheerful firepit and enjoy some smores or play the lighted cornhole for some fun nighttime competition. Enjoy other yard games during the day.

The yard is fully fenced for your pet and children's safety.

A 50” Roku TV with a small antenna to receive local channels as well as plenty of apps for you to log into your favorite streaming platforms is available for your viewing pleasure and a beautiful electric fireplace to relax you with its enticing flames.

Enjoy the amenities of a fully stocked kitchen for all your cooking needs, just bring your own food and condiments.

A breakfast nook in the corner of this large room, with seating for 6, is a great place to play games or enjoy a meal. In the back of the cabin is a bedroom with a comfortable queen bed and a small Roku TV.

A washing machine and dryer are available for your use in the utility room.

In the main large room are pull-down stairs to take you to the sleeping loft that has two comfortable beds, a full-size mattress, and a twin mattress. If needed, 2 rollaway beds or 16.5” air mattresses can be provided to be put in the main living space.

Guest access
You are within walking distance of the beach. It is a 5-minute or less walk straight into the water or the Sam-O-Set Sandy beach. There is a cute playground and pavilion across from the beach. You can also take a quick minute or two drive and park at Sam-O-Set Park if you don’t want to walk.

You are less than 4 miles in either direction to the North or South Higgins State Park entrance.

There is a large boat and watercraft boat launch at West Higgins Lake Boat Launch about a 5-minute drive away. There is a small craft launch just down the street just past Sam-O-Set Park. We have a 3-person inflatable kayak for use upon request. (2 adults and a child). There is public dock access at the end of each road for your use. There are limited places to moor your boat, but there are possibilities. If you need this, I can give you some options to check out.

Plenty of parking is available in front of the cabin for your trailer, boat, or other water toys, and parking in the driveway for cars.

There are several seasonal restaurants in the area. Big grocery stores are about 20 minutes away on the other side of Higgins Lake or Houghton Lake. There are party stores and convenience stores and a small grocery store nearby. In Roscommon, on the other side of the lake, about 20-25 minutes away, are many local restaurants and shops.

Higgins Lake Stay
I and 4 friends stayed at Denise's cabin for a wedding at Higgins Lake. The property was very clean slept 5 adults comfortable, and had ample amenities. It was also a short 5 minute walk to the lake. If I'm ever traveling up to Lake Higgins a second time, I would certainly consider staying here again.

Relaxing and free to roam
Our family, including our furry four-legged child, had a blast at the cottage. They have thought of everything and the property manager was also extremely helpful. Our dog loved having a fenced in yard to run around (something he doesn’t get at home). All the details were so well thought out. Looking forward to returning in warmer weather.

Long weekend fall getaway
Unfortunately, it rained nearly the entire weekend so we did not get to take full advantage of the property or the area. The home is in a great area and would be a great home base for exploring. Since the weather was so poor we were stuck inside. We tried to make the best of it with the games provided and watching movies. Our host was great with little treats left for us and our dog as well as checking in on us. Would love to go back in the summer to get the full Higgins Lake experience!

Go go funky frog!!!
It was a BLAST! The owner Denise is so awesome and thoughtful, there was snacks and surprises for our dog that we brought. She even had cute little dog bowls and mat for them. Which was AWESOME as we forgot his dishes packing! Lots of cool snacks and recipes for the fire pit outside. We played the yard games and it's cool having the rope lighting in everything! We blew up the inflatable kayak and took it for a ride in the lake. It was so much fun! You can very easily walk to Sam-o-set beach but we drove the times we went because we had swim floating and snacks and all that. Everything is GPS 7 minutes away, the local restaurants, store, ice cream, etc... so super convenient. This is a place we all decided is being bookmarked for future stays. The kids loved the loft with the pull down ladder, they were having a blast climbing up and playing and down and all that. All amenities are there, we cooked and had takeout and the Keurig is super cool. When it rained we had plenty of fun watching TV and the VAST variety of games there and in the basket to keep everyone full of fun memories. Being able to bring our dog was awesome as they really are a family member and don't want to be left out! Neighbors we ran into were nice, no complaints about anything on the cabin or trip. And Denise was checking in to make sure EVERYTHING was OK! We had 1 minor issue and she had a person out THAT DAY to fix it! Good job Denise! We can't wait to see you for the next trip!

Cute Clean Fun Cabin!
This property was super clean, beautifully thought out details to make out stay special! Clean, very nice linens and towels, everything we needed was in the kitchen, extra supplies we forgot to bring were right there (plastic bags, aluminum foil, ect). The utensils and kitchen supplies were in great condition, kcups for coffee was so nice. Highly recommend this cabin! It was nice and clean when we walked in the door and COOL. Great clean cabin smells and just gave me an overall feeling of home. Great job to the owners for all they provided!!! Again, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
