The space

This property was purchased by my grandmother and grandfather, Irene and Bob Lamerson in 1989 and they upgraded it. It was built in 1927. This 9,900 acre lake is known for its deep, clear waters. It is the 10th largest in Michigan with a shoreline of 21 miles. This ZIP code includes several other small communities and locales along the shores of the lake, including Hillcrest, Lyon Manor, Detroit Park, Cook Corner, Sharps Corner, Almeda Beach, Oak Grove, Ritz Corner, Pine Bluffs, Daytona-on-the-Lake and Cottage Grove. Since all have Higgins Lake as a postal address, they are often all considered as part of the Higgins Lake community. The lake is situated on the boundary between Lyon Township on the west and Gerrish Township on the east.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house. You will not have access to the two garages or the equipment inside them. So, you may want to bring a few deck chairs during the summer. We do have 2 large green adirondack chairs and 2 adjustable reclining beach sun lounge chairs available for you to use. There is a fire pit dug into the ground between the house and the dock (lakefront). We have firewood near the back garage that you may use, and you can gather sticks, etc. from around the yard. Newspaper works well for lighting fires at night, too.

Interaction with guests

I will be available by phone, email and text before, during and after your stay. I will have a cleaning service clean before you arrive. You will have access by a key inside a lock box affixed to the front door.

Other things to note

Please bring your own sheets and bath towels. During summer, bring beach towels.

We will have our boats covered and locked as it would be a liability for us to allow the use of them. However, you may rent boats from the B&B Marina or at the Old Point Comfort Marine.

This lakeside cottage is wonderful. It is exactly as described - both spacious AND cozy. The host is very helpful and available; responding to messages promptly. When you arrive, driving up is lovely through a stand of woods, with a winding brick path up to house, beautiful flowers and plants, all very welcoming. The cottage is clean and comfortable with a full kitchen, dining room with this great long table large enough for family dining, and comfortable spaces for lounging. Having bathroom with tub/shower on ground floor and half bath on 2nd floor really worked out well for our family. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the master bedroom having its own bathroom with shower - our own private oasis. There is plenty of space, having four bedrooms with comfortable queen beds, ceiling fans and dresser space so you can unpack, and there is a charming bunk room perfect for children (good blankets/comforters and pillows are provided - just bring sheets). Also note, it has a laundry room which is very handy. Decor is perfect for a lakeside cottage; lovely and cozy Americana. Outside in the front of cottage, you walk right out to a shaded yard perfect for relaxing and directly to the dock and the most beautiful clear lake with sandy bottom - perfect for swimming and floating. You really will not believe how beautiful Higgins Lake is. We felt like we were a million miles away; all in our own state! Our family had so much fun swimming, enjoying gorgeous sunsets, having campfires at night in the fire pit, and playing board games. We had a very relaxing stay. This place is a gem!

I'm easy-going and hard-working. I love live music, coffee houses and foodie restaurants. I'm a night owl, but, that doesn't mean I have to be out all night. I can find something to keep me busy no matter where I am. I enjoy all crowds of people and I can blend into, and adapt to, many different circles.

I am a Client Relations Manager for a strategic communications firm that conducts on-camera coaching globally for leading companies in a wide range of industries.

I also teach yoga as a side gig. Aside from yoga, I stay active riding my road bike. I've lived in Texas since 2007 and I am originally from Michigan. I will NEVER go back to the cold!
