Why Sam Pennisi chose East Tawas
Sam and Sharon were looking for a quiet lake where our children and grandchildren could swim, kayak, and row. Little Island Lake is an ideal family lake. There's an actual little island in the lake surrounded by a sandbar which is perfect for children swimming and wading. 4th of July festivals are amazing and fireworks are set off of the little island. The cottage is winterized, clean, comfortable, and very roomy.
What makes this cottage unique
Quiet, comfortable, and very relaxing.
