Hale Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Treat your family to a wonderful affordable lakefront vacation. Our cottage is furnished and decorated to the fullest and also includes exclusive use of our 22' pontoon boat with a new 2012, 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. Our beachfront is safe and inviting to your children, whether swimming or playing in the sand building castles! Fishing is also a highlight on our lake with our provided pontoon boat which makes it especially enjoyable for your family.

The kitchen adjoins the main living room. It is fully equipped with everything you will need. The kitchen also has a breakfast bar for morning cereal.

The living room exits onto a large deck which offers a breathtaking view of the lake and beautiful sunsets directly in front of you! The deck has a large picnic table with ample seating to enjoy dinners overlooking the water.

The cottage has a master bedroom with a view of the the lake. The master bedroom has it's own TV, with cable and DVD player. There is also a bunk room that sleeps three and is decorated in a fishing motif, great for the kids. In between the master bedroom and bunk room is a full bath and a third bedroom with a double bed. Plan to bring your own towels and sheets. Pillows, speads, blankets and mattress covers provided.

If we are able to rent the week for which you have canceled we will refund your money in full or you may transfer your deposit to another available week.

Pontoon boat: We do everything in our power to keep our boat in good running order, However, if the boat is disabled and not usable for reasons out of our control for during the week of your stay we will give you a credit of $40 per day up to a full credit of $300 for the week. This credit does not apply to lack of usage due to improper use or lack of operating knowledge by the rentor. If a service person is sent to the cottage to help or service an issue that is deemed to be no fault of the owners a service fee of $40 may be deducted from your security deposit.

The pontoon boat is not to be on the lake after dark.

Thank you for your consideration.

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 19 to 27 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 will be graduating from high school in 2012. We are expecting a very busy year on the homefront. 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 kids, aging parents and of course 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 and hear or read their guestbook comments of how they enjoyed the lake and cottage.

Melody & Randy Hulten purchased this cottage in 2008

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.

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.

Family Vacation 2014

Wonderful family vacation spot! The home had everything we need - including things for our granddaughter. The lake, boat and the beach was perfect; everyone had a great time. The owners were a phone call away. We will do this again!

Great Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the lake and beach very much. We spent our days fishing, boating or swimming. There is a nice sand bar area close by that you can anchor the pontoon and enjoy swimming. We spent time just floating in rafts in our own swim area. The cottage is clean and well kept. Nice deck for grilling or just enjoying the sunsets. It has a great fire pit down at the beach and we had a great time sitting around the fire at night. I would highly recommend this as your next vacation spot.

Perfect lake getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful, relaxing and perfect getaway time here. Our days were spent on the lake or the beach, enjoying the pontoon boat cruising around the lake or fishing. There is a nice sand bar area close by that was nice to anchor and swim. We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing when not using the pontoon, and even just floated around in rafts on the water. Very nice beach area and we loved sitting around the fire at night. The cottage was clean and well kept and it was everything it promised to be. I would highly recommend this for your next vacation spot.

The cabin was wonderful! We had a great time, enjoyed days on the lake and night time campfires.

Would highly recommend this as your next vacation spot!

Owner's Response: Thanks Paul for the great review! We do like to hear when our guests make full use of the lake and what we have to offer. Including the pontoon boat and other boats in our rental allows our guests to not just look at the lake but actually enjoy it! This is why we do what we do. So glad to see you enjoyed the loons and eagles as well...one of our favorite things to watch for! Thanks and hope you vacation again at Thisisit-too Cottage.

Summer family vacation

My family had a very nice time at the cottage. We enjoyed the use of the boat, and the beach was perfect for my grand daughter who is 18 months old.
