Property description

Treat your family to a wonderful affordable lakefront vacation. Our cottage is furnished and decorated to the fullest and also includes your very own exclusive use of our 24' pontoon boat with a new 2013 Mercury 4 stroke motor to fish and explore the lake for your entire stay!

It would be our pleasure to have you as guests at our cottage. We hope you will come and enjoy a stay at the lake. We will do everything in our power to make your stay fun and enjoyable.

Our smoke-free cottage is on beautiful West Londo Lake in Hale MI. The lake is an all sports lake that you can enjoy water-skiing, fishing, swimming, relaxing on the water and beautiful sunsets.

The main floor features a large living room that adjoins to a full kitchen. The living room exits onto a large deck that overlooks the lake.

The deck has a picnic table and ample seating to enjoy dinners overlooking the water. The main floor also has a large master suite that overlooks the lake. The master suite has its own TV, with cable.

Across the hall is the bunk room that sleeps three and is decorated in a fishing motif, great for the kids. In between the master suite and bunk room is a full bathroom.

The kitchen is a fully equipped with everything you will need. The kitchen also has a breakfast bar for morning cereal or you can use the dining table that overlooks the lake.

The upstairs features two bedrooms and a half bath, one room has a lake view with twin beds. The other room has a trundle bed that can be use as two single beds or made into a king bed with its own personal TV with cable. Plan to bring your own towels and sheets. Pillows, speads, blankets and mattress covers provided. The upstairs half bath is done in a nautical theme and peeks out over the lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

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 28 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:
Our cottage has been in our family for over 30 years. We acquired it from Melody's parents when they became to old to take care of it themselves. 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 at 'Thisisit' cottage and still enjoy going (except for the work weekends of course)

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 at the water's edge or on a sunset cruise. After sunset it is time for a campfire and smores down by the water. 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 at the top of our neighbor's pine tree. 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.
