Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are Randy and Melody Hulten. We have been married since 1998. We are a blended family with 1 daughter and 3 sons. They range in age from 21 to 29 years of age. Because of our blended family we have 2 sons named Joshua. As if that wasn't enough our daughter married one as well! Our 2 youngest boys are 4 months a part in age and in college. In July of 2013 we were blessed with our first grandson who is a blast! We also have a welsh terrier that has us all wrapped around her paw, and always so excited to go up north. Randy is an engineer in the auto industry and Melody has been blessed to be a stay at home Mom but is kept very busy with watching our grandson and managing our two vacation rentals. We enjoy doing projects around our home and cottages too. We very much enjoy seeing the excitement in our guests as they arrive. We also love to hear or read their guestbook comments of how they enjoyed the lake and cottage.
Why the Owner Chose Hale, MI, USA:
We have enjoyed this area for years and have another lakefront cottage just around the corner from this one. We have always loved the location because of it only being 2 1/2 hours north of our home in Auburn Hills. All our children grew up vacationing up north and still enjoy going (except for the work weekends of course) The main reason we bought this cottage was because of the lake frontage and beach. We knew from experience that our guests really appreciate a decent swimming area. The cottage itself lends to such a fun quaint cottage atmosphere and our guests love it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
All our guests that stay at our cottage very much get to enjoy the lake experience because of the pontoon boat included. It is a great feature for families with kids of all ages. The pontoon makes fishing with kids much more enjoyable (we know from experience.) The reason why we include the pontoon is to give our guests the ability to enjoy the lake to the fullest instead of just looking at it. We often have beautiful sunsets to enjoy straight across the lake or on a sunset cruise. After sunset it is time for a campfire and smores down on the sandy beach. Our boat also allows you to get more up close to the wildlfe on the lake. We have a small island that nests our loons that often have 2 babies each spring. Hearing them call and sing to each other in the evening or early morning is breathtaking. As of 2007 we have bald eagles as well! We have watched them swoop down and fish themselves. They often perch in near by trees or fly over the cottage. Randy has taken many photos of them, he has been labeled 'obsessed' ! Both the loons and eagles are such beautiful creations. We desire for all our guests to enjoy our cottage as we have been blessed to do for so many years.
