Play all day in the water here at Birch Lodge Cottages! Higgins Lake is a boater's heaven and we offer secure boat mooring and trailer storage facilities for your watercraft. Paddle along the beautiful shoreline in one of our kayaks, canoes, rowboats or paddleboats.

After a day on the lake, come back to shore and play an invigorating game of volleyball, tennis, badminton, basketball, shuffleboard or horseshoes. The Lodge is also adjacent to thousands of acres of state forest land, perfect for a hiking, biking, or sightseeing adventure.

Golf fans will be pleased to know that a dozen golf courses are all within an easy drive of the Lodge, including the courses of the famous Northern Michigan Golf Mecca.

Traverse City, Petoskey, and Mackinac Island also make great day trips from the Lodge.
