    Only 4 houses from beautiful Houghton Lake (the biggest inland lake in Michigan)...this house will give you a relaxed setting for your weekend away! So much to do! Snowmobile trails are close, many golf courses, hunting/hiking thousands of acres of state land. Very close to South Houghton Lake DNR boat launch. Convenience is right around the corner with tasty restaurants and local grocery stores.
  • This place was so clean and the perfect getaway for the weekend. Jason was an excellent host, he was very quick to respond to all my questions and was very helpful in finding a place to eat. Jason is a 10/10 host.

    Our cozy two story long cabin is just 150ft off the lake and one block over from the county beach. It has a main level master and full bathroom with a fully loaded kitchen and two bedrooms upstairs. The cabin can sleep 10 comfortably and has its own fire pit.
    This newer log cabin with a covered porch is ready for your next vacation! Only being about 150ft off the water with community dock access this cabin gives you a great lake get away experience. Along with the cabin rental comes a canoe with provided paddles and life jackets for your use and after spending time at the local beach (with boat launch) a block away you can fire up the grill or sit around the fire pit out back. Off street parking is also included with plenty of space to park a boat or 4 wheeler trailer. Being near to some of the best ORV trails in the state makes our place a hot spot for summer and winter riders. This cabin has been our family getaway for over 10 years and we can't wait to share it with you!
    Quiet lakeside drive with mostly summer homes
  • The space was exactly as described. We had a great time and would definitely go back again.

    Ashleigh2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect weekend getaway cabin. It is spacious and can fit ten guests just fine. Close to the water, and with pontoons easily rentable within a mile, you'll have a great time here.

    Sarah2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was great. The cabin was clean. There were spiders but you are up north and also near water so we felt that was to be expected. The cabins water does have a sulfur smell but I'm assuming that is because it is well water. We are used to city water so we bought water to drink and cook with. Overall it was a great trip and a great place to stay! We would stay again!

    Erika2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Tom was an excellent host, beware that the whole town has well water that has sulfur/egg smell... but not an issue that would prevent me from booking in the future.

    Jason2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable and great amenities

    Brent 2017-07-02T00:00:00Z

    Alan2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • It's a lovely place to stay and was immaculately clean.

    Karen2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. If you're fussy about well water realize there is no whole house filtration - so your showers are stinky. But the place is extremely clean and the host communicates promptly and accurately. The covered porch is a nice touch. The only problem for me was the lake. We were expecting a typical gin clear northern MI lake. But Houghton is a stained lake. It's a good fishing lake but not the best for swimming. However, just north of Houghton is Higgins Lake, which is gin clear and a great swimming lake. All in all I would recommend this place.

    Spend some quality time at our 3 Bedroom Chalet. The Cottage is just steps away from the sandy beech of Houghton Lake. The lake bottom is sandy and great for playing with the kids or just spending some quality alone time. After a great day at the beach enjoy our wrap around porch with amazing views of the lake. Inside you will find a gas fireplace, full washer and dryer, Wi-Fi, and 42" Flat screen TV. Spend time enjoying the lake and all the fun activities that happen on or around Houghton Lake.
    Our neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. There is the occasional 4 wheeler or dirt bike going by on their way to the trails. During the winter you may see or hear snowmobiles going by as well. But for the most part it is a very quiet place to go and relax alone or with your family. There is a huge park just across the road and many small unique shops within walking distance.

  • This was by far one of my favorite family vacation spots! The house had everything I could possibly use and need. She has thought of everything, extra towels, beach towels, toys for kids, cookware, extra blankets and pillows. She was easy to get a hold of when I had questions and responded in a timely fashion. I will be booking again for next year, this time a week long. Thank you again for a great time.

    Kari2017-08-09T00:00:00Z

  • Great weekend with the girls! It was early in the season, so we didn't enjoy the nearby beaches, but we loved the tip to go hike at Lost Twin Lakes! We especially enjoyed joking how we might lose one of our friends (who is a twin)! But in all seriousness the hiking spot didn't even show up on the map, so it was a great insider tip! With the sunroom, there was plenty of space for all 8 of us. And we loved making a bonfire each night!

All the accommodations were above our expectations and we had everything we needed! Location is fantastic as well - on a quiet street walking distance to the Lake, but also super close to the Walmart. We would be glad to come back again!

    Johanna2017-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! This cabin is beautiful, spotlessly clean & a perfect location for snowmobiling. It has plenty of room for a large enclosed trailer & truck. It also is in a great location to access the lake & the trail head on the sleds from the cabin. Would definitely recommend Sunnyview Cottage!

  • This house was perfect for our outing. It was close to Houghton Lake and nice and quiet. We used the grill and cooked out every night we were there. Great time was had by all!

    jason2016-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We chose this location for a work retreat due to the fact that it accommodated such a large group. We loved the open floor plan of the living room, kitchen and pool table area. It was perfect size and we didn't feel squished with 12 people. The rooms were perfect with beds in each, although the crib is counted as a bed which was confusing at first. We loved the back yard and fire pit. It was fall so we went hiking in the area but we didn't take part of the lake or winter activities. The house had everything needed for our stay and we were able to cook without any problems. Perfect weekend get away.

    Trinity2016-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Houghton Lake with 3 other families was perfect at Fillip's place! The kids had unending fun goofing around in the yard, the pool table had a ton of use (it appears we weren't the only ones who loved to play!) and there was plenty of space for all of us to crash at night. The location was perfect for our band gig at the Back Door Saloon on Sat night as well as a jaunt up to Higgins Lake. The house was well stocked with supplies for all of our needs. The bed in the larger queen bedroom was SO comfortable! It is a well loved and eclectic house and a gem for our needs!

  • Great location on the lake and backyard/patio area are perfect for hanging outside. Lisa offered a great suggestion for renting a pontoon and we were able to spend the day out on the lake fishing and swimming at the sand bar. Home is very spacious and plenty of sleeping areas. Kitchen is fully equipped and enough space for preparing large meals. Lisa was very easy to reach and quick to respond to any questions we had. Would definitely stay again!

The expansive stamped concrete patio will serve as the ideal place to spend warm evenings barbecuing on the gas grill, socializing with your companions, or simply relaxing while you admire the picturesque shoreline views. On those brisk winter nights, retreat indoors and curl up by the toasty fireplace and radiant in-floor heat. When you're finally ready to call it a night, you'll be happy to retire to one of the inviting bedrooms to rest up for another adventure filled day. The Location... Reap the benefits of staying in a beautiful lakefront chalet cottage. Having your own private beach is quite rare on Houghton Lake, with no seawall to climb over to soak your feet. Located on the pristine East bay with sunsets to warm your heart and put a smile on anyones face. Our home is centrally located and is less than 15 minuets from all of Houghton Lakes hot spots. Just down the street you can rent anything from pontoons and jet skis to snowmobiles and ice fishing shanty's. Nearby trail heads connect you to thousands of miles of ATV, Snomoblie, X-country skiing, Hiking and Biking trails. These trails will take you through Michigans magnificent State and National forests, where large and small game hunting rein supreme. Guided private-land hunting and charter fishing are available. About The Owners... Houghton Lake is truly rejuvenating. We met in the area and have "Honeymooned" there many times over the years. Being drawn to the Lake most of all for it's tranquility and beauty. We want to share our home with those who appreciate serenity and nature's beauty, family time and outdoor activities. We can assure all guests that if you're not completely satisfied, we are not satisfied. We will do everything possible to ensure your complete satisfaction. Our home which we dearly love and visit often, is managed by us personally and we have a great local manager, housekeeper and caretaker. If for any reason you are not satisfied, please let us know and we can assure you the management team will bend over backwards 24/7 to make sure your issues no matter how big or small are taken care of for you. Why the Owners Chose Houghton Lake... We purchased The Old Trail Chalet primarily because of her spectacular views! We feel it's the perfect home for entertaining large families and gatherings with spectacular sunsets over the lake. Followed by breathtaking views of the moon and stars in the clear, clean Up-North air. The Old Trail Chalet is far beyond and ahead of its competition where it really counts! Creating lasting and unforgettable memories from the best Houghton Lake has to offer. We look forward to hearing from you with the dates you wish to book. It's never to early to book, inquire about your dates now. Worth Mentioning... - Five Bedroom, Four and a half baths, 3120 square feet. - Private sandy beach with 85 feet of lake frontage - Professionally decorated by Lakeview Interiors - Our home doesn't have central air which isn't usually a problem because of the nice breeze coming off the lake. Each bedroom does have a state of the art, standalone air conditioner for those who prefer it a little cooler. - Luxury hotel quality linens, towels and pillows provided. - Please inquire for any week, the Airbnb calendar sometimes takes a few days to sync with real time. So cancelations or corrections may not be up to date or 100% - Effortless check-in and out. We make it easy to stay with us. Drive straight to the home and access it with your own personal lock code.

  • This was a great place to stay!! Matt was great to work with!!

    Jodie2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay and enjoyed our time on Houghton Lake. It was three families who did a little of almost everything while we were there. The house had lots of open space to congregate, enough bathrooms for everyone and lots of kitchen space - all things we were looking for in a rental.

    Esther2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place very clean and beautiful views. The house is wide open and very nice. Matt is great at working with you to ensure a great stay.

  • We had a great week on Houghton Lake! The owner, Matt, was very helpful even before we made the reservation and during our stay when we had a few Mother Nature-related issues. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood and is larger than the photos made it appear. It had plenty of room for our group of 11: 6 adults and 5 kids. We actually didn't use two of the twin beds. One of our family members uses a wheelchair and this house was perfect for him as well. There are no stairs to get in the house or down to the water and there is a main floor bedroom and bathroom that was easily accessible. Everything was impeccably clean when we arrived and the house was well-stocked from the kitchen to outdoor gear. There were plenty of fluffy towels and all of the linens were good quality. Outside there was lots of seating, a nice grill, and a dock where our kids spent a lot of time trying to reel in a big one. They didn't have much luck but we did catch some nice walleye and bass out on our boat and we were able to clean them on the fish cleaning station provided and eat them for dinner. A suggestion would be to be sure to bring water shoes-the shoreline is kind of rocky/slippery but there is a nice, sandy bottom once you get past those rocks and the water stays shallow for a LONG way out. Our little swimmers loved that! Thanks again for sharing your home and helping our family make new memories, Matt!

    Emily2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodations! Fantastic bathroom to bedroom ratio and the kitchen is really easy for multiple people to work in. Great backyard and a wonderful spot on the lake. Would recommend it to anyone/everyone!

  • Wow, what a great little place! Quaint and comfortable decor, easy to find, close to gas, stores and restaurants, and furnished with everything you may need(or forget!) for a perfect Houghton Lake getaway. I can't praise the host and the family enough for what a wonderful job they have done renovating this home and making it the perfect Airbnb vacation spot! We are bass tournament fishermen and found plenty of space for our two trucks and boats, which is lacking at so many other rentals on the big lake. This will be our go-to anytime we are in the area, we highly recommend this for anyone looking for a stress-free getaway!

    Tiffany2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • WOW, my stay was incredible! The home was not just tastefully decorated it was exceptionally clean as well. What wonderful host, upon arrival after a long day with family and an arrival time of 9:30. There was a wonderful bottle of wine with a note explaining the features of the home i.e. WIFI and the finer points of the entertainment system. There was wood for the fire pit how thoughtful! My only regret is that I didn't stay longer! I am in Houghton a few times a year on business this will always be a first choice.

    Lisa2017-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • The house was great! Very clean and had a modern look to it! The hosts were awesome as they left us with a cute welcome note at check in and provided all the amenities we needed to stay at the home. The location was great also - there was a bar walking distance so we could watch the Michigan football game and water access just down the street. Definitely would recommend this place for others to stay.

    Jessica2017-09-04T00:00:00Z

    Terrell2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We just enjoyed a great weekend at the cottage. The location is convenient - near the lake and walking distance to two local restaurants as well as a gas station/convenience store. Just a short drive into town. The place was recently completely remodeled, so it was perfectly clean. Christopher was flexible with check in/check out and very easy to communicate with. Will definitely stay again when coming to this area.

    Our charming cottage is located on the East Bay on Houghton Lake, MI. You will enjoy beautiful sunsets. The cottage is centrally located to many attractions like putt-putt golf, ice cream shops, restaurants, shopping, cinema, ORV trails.
  • The house was fairly roomy for being a cottage/cabin. Only one bathroom but not too bad. You can tell they've put some work into it (very cute styling). It's not QUITE done; I would love to see it finished in the future! The yard isn't big but the location is lovely and the backyard is nice. Could use some straightening up back there but all the extra stuff is off to the side so it's not in the way. Perfect little pergola and fire pit. My daughter loved feeding the ducks off the dock!

    Jenna2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Our family enjoyed a lovely weekend at Lynn's cottage on Houghton Lake. Lots of Cross Country Ski trails within a 20-30 minutes drive. The cottage was cute, needs a little work and a little cleaning.

It's only 1 mile from South Higgins Lake State Park and Marl Lake, which are the best places around for swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, and canoeing. It's a 12 min drive to Roscommon and a 20 min drive to Houghten Lake, where you can find anything you need or want, including more beaches and water sports.
    Fire pit, charcoal grill, washer and dryer, refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, wifi, and 2 flat screen TV's with Netflix subscription, all ready to go for our guests.
    If you are looking for a relaxing, clean home in a quiet, wooded neighborhood, you have found it. The serenity of this area and the warm, welcoming locals are sure to make your experience the best it can be.
  • What a great place! We stayed with 2 other couples over Labor Day Weekend and couldn't have asked for a better place! We are from northeast Detroit so it was a quick 3 hour drive to our favorite place-Up North! Space was perfect, we actually didn't even use one of the bedrooms because the futon couch and air mattress were so comfy we kind of had a slumber party in the living room! Everything was provided for us all we had to do was grocery shop! The spacious front porch was the perfect setting for card games and late night stories. We really didn't even use the fire pit because we loved the porch so much! South Higgins lake is literally right down the street, and the convenient store was right on the way, so it made our trip to the beach with our kayaks that much quicker! Eric answered any and all off my questions within seconds, and was extremely friendly! We hope to return often!

    Adrienne2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • A home away from home! Very close to the state park and not too far from town, yet very quiet and private. Modern, clean and very comfortable. We'll stay again if we revisit the area!

    Rachel2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • There was only 2 of us for a wedding on the North side of the lake so it was a little larger then needed. Great location and very clean accommodations. Extremely cozy living room. We loved the fireplace for the cool fall day. So close to the state park with great hiking trails. Perfect place for a family trip.

    Jessica2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Eric's cottage for 2 nights. It is very quiet and peaceful and only a 5min drive from the lake and 15min from the grocery store and restaurants. The cottage itself is very roomy (beds 6 easily!) and clean. We really enjoyed sitting outside at night

    Martin2017-08-23T00:00:00Z

    Kristin2017-09-21T00:00:00Z

    Steve2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • very good place for the price. met expectations. neighbors were very nice. one house down from lake. if you need to moor a boat you may need to do it at the State Park (South Higgins) which is very close to this place. So, you could walk over in the shallow water, maybe 100 yards or so. I did get permission from neighbor to moor boat but generally it's frowned upon. Mooring at State Park would have been easy solution had I not gotten permission. Inside was basic but clean. My son and I had a nice time. I have no complaints.

    Christopher2017-07-27T00:00:00Z

    Sam2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a wonderful location on Higgins Lake! You can go one house down to the water and swim at the end of road access or put your boat in at the state park just down the road. Fire pit and grill are a nice bonus. Quiet street and very peaceful. Love the rustic kitchen. Enjoyed our stay very much!

  • The cottage is fantastic. The beds are comfortable. Lots of interesting decorative items like the buffet server and the "Kalijah slot machine." The kitchen setup is wonderful with an island stove that was fun to use. There is lots of room in the living area. The one bathroom is absolutely beautiful, and having 1.5 baths was essential for a large group. The deck in front and patio in back were great gathering places (front when it was nice, back when it was cool and winds were blowing.) Of course the beach, dock, and waterfront were the best parts. We had a boat, kayaks, paddleboard, and floaties with us, so we made good use of the water and the beautiful lake. The child's swing is absolutely phenomenal--never saw one quite like it before. All of the other lakefront enhancements made for a fun time for all (tetherball, horseshoes, park benches around the firepit, benches and a swing to use to enjoy the view of the lake, even chaise lounges to chill on. Everyone was helpful and friendly.

  • My wife and I, and our dog Henry, really enjoyed our stay at Stacey's cottage. It was spacious and had everything you'd need. The master bed upstairs is extremely comfortable, making for good rest between busy days on the lake. There are a public beach and small boat ramp nearby, or you're not far from the South Higgins Lake State Park, which is where we spent our time. The dog beach there was great for Henry, who loves playing fetch in the water. The driveway at the cottage is roomy, which was nice as it allowed me to unhitch and park the boat when we didn't need it. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will look for Stacey's cottage on our next visit to Higgins Lake.

    Will2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was adoable, clean and very pet friendly. The loft upstairs was very nice also had the gates inside for uour pets upstairs. Was very clean and everything was there that you needed. The deck was very nice to sit outside with gates so your pet stays up there with you. I would highly recommend this place to owners with pets. Only a few miles from Higgins Lake South. Thanks Stacey you made it so easy. Too. Loved your cabin made you feel right at home.

  • This cottage is a perfect getaway from the hustle bustle of the city life. Stacey is a wonderful host, responsive and very considerate. She took out time on a busy Thanksgiving evening to give us a call and confirm if we checked in or needed anything during our stay at her property. The property is very clean and equipped with everything one would require during a perfect vacation. I totally enjoyed my stay here and Stacey I'm returning again during the Christmas break for another escapade :) This stay made my Thanksgiving break a memorable one.

You are a short walk from public parks on Higgins which is amazing, also a short walk to a boat launch to launch your boat. Perks of being lake front without the high cost. Will stay at again!

  • The cabin was exactly what we were looking for...clean and close to the lake! With a short walk to the lake we were able to swim and enjoy the beautiful water. I walked out at least 200 yards from the shore and the depth only reached my chest, it was amazing! My family and I cannot wait to come back.

When you first step in, it's very homey and comfy. There were many board games, a television with DVDs, a grill (charcoal and gas), and a fire pit for a bonfire. If you're looking for a relaxing trip, this is the place to go! I highly recommend this place!

    Jin2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place! Very clean with nice personal touches. The lake is magnificent but unfortunately the weather wasn't, which means I'll be coming back for sure. Teresa (a very gracious host, I must add) wasn't kidding about the well water, it's fantastic! I even filled up a couple of bottles to take home!! Can't wait to come back

  • The cabin was exactly as described in the listing. Very well stocked. The location was great - only a few minutes walk to the lake and walking distance from a convenience store. The cabin was charming and very clean. Would definitely stay here again if I find myself at Higgins Lake in the future.

    Higgins Lake, MI, United States

    My place is close to South Higgins Lake State Park, Stream Side bar & grill, Pine Pantry breakfast diner, Fred's of Roscommon (pizzeria and bowling), Dead Bear Brewing (Grayling), Town & Country grocery, Family Fare Supermarket, Good Times Party Store, Stone Turtle Yoga, B & B Sports Center & Marina, Cross Country Ski Headquarters.
    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.
  • 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!

    Our place is close to Higgins Lake. A small community beach and playground are a 3 block walk from the home. The Higgins lake State Parks (North and South) are close by. You’ll love our place because of the separate entrance and private space and the use of the fire pit and gas grill in the back. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids). Our place is close to Fred's of Roscommon ( 10 minute drive for pizzeria and bowling). TV (local channels) & DVD are provided.
    Higgins Lake has been noted as one of the world's most beautiful lakes. This space is a 3 block walk from the lake.
    Walking distance to lake, park, store and restaurant.
  • Great up north place! Jerry and Janice were very friendly and we enjoyed staying at their flat.

    Melissa2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • They were the nicest people I've ever met. Made sure they showed us around, had any questions answered that we had, ensured the place was clean. They even made us burgers one night. Who else does that? Well they do! Amazing people, my top choice for a place to stay in Roscommon.

    Kevin2017-06-25T00:00:00Z

    Ryan2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry greeted us right away and was very accomodating! The place was even cuter than we expected. Definitely want to come back here again!

    Emily2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • My bestie and I had such a great time staying that we didn't want to leave! The space was very private and lovely. Comfortable bed. Free bonfire and use of the grill. Beautiful deck. Lovely walk. Dirt roads and trees everywhere. Tons of charming frog lawn decor. Thanks for a great stay!

    Katrina2017-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry and Janice were great! Very friendly and accommodating. The house is within walking distance of Higgins Lake and there are some good restaurants nearby!

    Our home is located on some of the best sandy beach on the lake. We are in a sheltered area of the lake the provides welcome relief from the prevailing south and southwest winds. The water is very shallow in front of the house and gradually increases to chest deep-deep about 600 yards out. The sunsets are amazing almost every night!
  • Very nice home in a great location on a beautiful lake. Outstanding views of lake. Has everything you need to be your home away from home. Great communication from the owners if you have any questions or issues.

  • Very comfortable, scenic, and quite place in the off season. Would recommend for up north family get away in any season.

    Edward2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at this cottage was spectacular!!! First of all, the view! They've got a really beautiful piece of property on a breathtakingly clear lake and we were so happy to enjoy it! The house has everything you need. We went out and bought things from coffee to toilet paper to bathroom spray but they had it all. They were beyond accomodating and so helpful and friendly. The neighbors were wonderful to us, very helpful and overly friendly.... A little piece of Mayberry on the lake it seemed! what a privilege to stay here, we hope to make it a yearly occurrence for our family! Our best stay at Higging lake in the six years we've been staying there!!!

  • Our family of 4 had a great time at Mark & Betty's. The place is exactly as described and pictured. Mark was very responsive to our inquiries prior to our visit. We really appreciated all the extra toys and gear we were free to use while we were there. Kids had a blast in the lake. This was our first trip to Higgins Lake and we will be back!

  • We had a nice stay, the place is beautiful, and the hosts were very generous in what they allowed us to use. The photos and description were mostly accurate. It could be more obvious that there is a road between the house and lake that guests with children will need to watch closely. It was clear what guests COULD use and we didn't use anything that was not mentioned. However, the hosts do have multiple personal items that I recommend be labeled as do NOT use. It's difficult to control what other guests touch and requires a lot of management by the person who booked the stay. We were told upon arrival that windows could not be opened, which we also followed. While it would've been nice to have fresh air from the lake during the summer, there was air conditioning that worked well. Check-out instructions were not clear although we started the dishwasher, stripped the beds and gathered the laundry and this seems to be sufficient. The hosts told us to call and meet directly with neighbors, sometimes referred to as best friends & sometimes as management, if we needed anything. They also came over multiple times to finish cleaning after check-in and retrieve borrowed personal items. Referred to as management, I expected that any violations on our part would have been observed and communicated to us. I also informed them of what we are only now being charged for and expected that it would be managed and handled accordingly. Unfortunately this was not the case but they did take pictures of us without informing us. It turns out the hosts were in the area, also taking pictures of us, as evidence to charge money post check-out. I had seen someone who looked like one of the hosts pictured and found it a little discerning because Airbnb hosts have previously let me know when they are nearby. I wasn't concerned because we were not hiding anything from management next door. The second host ended up stopping by just before our check-out time. Post check-out, we learned that the hosts stayed next door for at least the last night of our stay and also took photos to document accusations and charge more later (not in property listing) instead of confronting us and asking us to leave (in property listing) Although I will state again how generous the hosts were, especially about letting us use their boat hoist, being uninformed about photographs being taken of our children leaves a feeling of discomfort. It is also unfortunate that neither the hosts nor management confronted us about their accusations when they were next door. Where we stand now is that the hosts are asking for extra money without providing an itemized list and support for for these costs. The issue has been escalated to Airbnb. I know I will get a negative review and am ok with that. I am discomforted by this experience and don't wish to book anything any time soon.

  • Your own piece of paradise, although only for a short time.

    Edward2017-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The property was really beautiful and clean. It made our stay very comfortable. Mark and Betty were very responsive during our stay as we had cable outage they they worked to try to fix while we were there. If you're looking for a relaxing get-away, this is definitely the place.

    Andrea2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my family had a wonderful stay. Mark and Betty were very responsive in answering any questions that we had. They provided everything we needed and more. The place was perfect for me, my husband and two kids. The view was amazing, there's a park a couple blocks down the street and of course being on the lake was great. The house had all the comforts we wanted: internet, cable, towels & linens, kitchen, cookware, fire pit, washer and dryer. Thank you so much for being such a great host!
