About The Area
For generations visitors from southern Michigan and other points in the midwest have chosen Roscommon County as their northern Michigan getaway destination. With very easy access off I-75 or US 127, it's one of the easiest spots to reach from areas to the south that really feels like "Up North". Houghton and Higgins Lakes have been the largest draws to the area because of the limitless recreational opportunities they provide. Houghton Lake is Michigan's largest inland lake by surface area. It's always been a favorite among anglers seeking walleye, pike, perch and other panfish. Higgins Lake is among Michigan's clearest lakes and offers spectacular boating, swimming and additional fishing opportunities for everything from perch to Lake Trout and everything in between. Often overlooked smaller lakes like Lake James and Lake St. Helen provide additional waters to explore and often at cottage options at more affordabale pricing. The famous Au Sable River also flows through Roscommon County including the spectacular Mason Tract along the river's South Branch. With over 200,000 acres of public land, Roscommon County is also a favorite among hikers, bikers and hunters looking for room to roam and abundant wildlife. We'd love the opportunity to help find that perfect property for you and your family. Whether it's a modest cabin in the woods, a serene riverfront lodge or a spectacular lakefront home, we can help you realize your dream of owning your own "up north" getaway.
