We are farming families from Ontario, Canada who requested a get away with our kids and grandkids, as their gift for our 50th Wedding Anniversary in 2014. We chose Gladwin Michigan for our setting at a cottage called "Woods & Water" for three days and three nights. We lived and shared our lives with each other with no cell phones or contacts from our home area in Canada. We were truly blest that each child and grandchild asked permission for time off from their jobs and employers, to enjoy this experience and they were all granted this special time with their Grandparents for our Anniversary year.
Our cottage was rented from "Three Sisters Vacation Rentals" of Redford Michigan. Upon our arrival, the wide yard was landscaped with breathtaking tall trees that provided a special ambiance and setting for our relaxing vacation together as a family. The cottage was modeled in "Chalet" facade. We felt instantly welcomed by this vision in this State of Michigan and only three hours traveling time away from our homes in Ontario. We rented two cottages for extra comfort and space for our families to share each evening meal together and alternate visits each day with the entire family group. We rented a Pontoon boat, we paddled together on paddle boats, we toured the beautiful calm and scenic Lake Lancer, we enjoyed s'mores, spider dogs and steaks over the campfires each evening as we enjoyed our gatherings together, as a family
This setting located in Lake Lancer and "Woods & Water" Rental is located in Sugar Springs Private Community. Our fire pits were next to the Lake bank. Our accommodations inside and outside were neat, tidy, clean and spacious. The kitchen was well serviced with up- to -date appliances, dishes, cooking pans and lots of counter space. The large dining table made our breakfasts and lunches special and we were all together in our cottage enjoyment. There were many fans strategically positioned throughout our cottage for providing fresh air from the outside for humid days. There were two bathrooms in the cottage, one was upstairs and one downstairs. There were many folding chairs when we played cards or board games which were also stacked on the shelves of the games closet area next to the play table in the sitting room. There were linens supplied for each of the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen. We sang campfire songs around the fire pit nightly, we watched sea-doos, ducklings and water skiers cross the lake water in front of us.Unforgettable!
