  • West Londo Lake Relaxation

    "ThisIsIt Cottage is your destination for fun and relaxation. The tranquil sunsets, early morning sun rise, Eagle flying overhead, Loons singing in the distant is the perfect recipe for a calm and rejuvenating vacation week. Your cottage is clean, tastefully decorated and the newly remodeled kitchen is great. Evenings were filled with sitting around the beach themed fire pit with benches, eating s'mores and enjoying the peaceful moonlit night. The Pontoon boat is wonderful for cruising, fishing and the kids really enjoyed tubing (daily!), the lake is crystal clear with enjoyable areas for swimming and great for Kayaking. Tawas is only 25 minutes away for shopping, dining and additional activities. We have rented several cottages in different locations throughout Michigan this is the best one. Thank you for the memories"

  • Relaxation at it's best

    "What a great get-away. Very clean and well stocked. There wasn't anything that we needed or wanted. Mac was very helpful with suggestions for dining and places to visit. Can't wait to see the cabin in the winter. Thanks Mac!"

  • Prefect week on the lake!

    "Three generations of my family enjoyed this clean and nicely decorated cottage on beautiful Grand Lake. It was so quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed using the bikes and having campfires in the evening. Plenty of room for everyone and the guesthouse and fort are great for additional sleeping space. Great location to visit Alpena, Rogers City and several lighthouses. We even rented a pontoon boat on Grand Lake and the kids fished with their grandfather for the day. Overall, a great trip at a great cottage. We hope to come again! Owners are very helpful and our deposit was returned promptly which was appreciated."

  • Perfect cottage for a small reunion!

    "Owners posting of a recent guest's email comments (with permission!) concerning their first ever "siblings and spouses only" reunion at Otsego Lake: Thank you. The cottage was perfect for our small reunion of seven. Everyone enjoyed the location and comfortable "feel" of it. I was considering posting a review on VRBO but I didn't see where you needed another 5 stars!! Thanks again. Will."
