Hale Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

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 25' 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.

YOUR RENTAL WEEK STARTS SATURDAY AFTER 4:00 PM AND GOES UNTIL THE FOLLOWING SATURDAY AT 11:00 AM.

The weekly rental includes the cottage, pontoon boat, paddle boat, kayaks and a fire pit with firewood supplied.

Reservation/security deposit: We will hold your reservation with a $600 deposit, this will also be a security deposit. The security deposit will be refunded to you within two weeks from your departure minus the cleaning fee. ($75 for reasonable cleaning, if more extensive cleaning needed, cost will reflect)

Our cancellation policy: If a reservation is canceled, you will forfeit your reservation/security deposit, with two exceptions. 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 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 2000

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)

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.

Fantastic!

This was by far the cleanest vacation rental we have ever rented. We felt totally at home. The beach area was nice and the new fire/sand pit was excellent. These folks were very nice to work with and we will definitely come back. Having the pontoon boat was the icing on the cake. Terrific vacation!

This was the perfect cottage to facilitate our family reunion, with folks coming in from 3 different states. One family member had to have his cable TV. Check. Others wanted fishing, swimming and campfires. Check, check, check. Me, I enjoyed the over-sized deck, which was big enough to seat everyone together for wonderful family dinners, prepared on that great outdoor gas grill. It gave us an opportunity to create new memories, while we watched some amazing sunsets. The newly decorated master bedroom has a charming beachy vibe. The cottage is spacious, with plenty of room for everyone, even on a rainy day. would highly recommend. A big thank you to our hosts, Melody and Randy!

We had the best week. weather was beautiful during the day cool at night did not miss having air with the lake breeze. You guys did a wonderful job on the remodel of the master bedroom and the girls loved the bunk room. Your cottage was even nicer than than we expected. Thank you for a fun filled week. Sorry for the little bit of trouble with the boat Paul was a big help everybody we met was so nice. I hope maybe we can do this again next year. Thanks for always getting back to us so soon after we called about the boat it shows how much you care about your renters.The lake was just the perfect size and we had a fish fry ane night loved the sand bar.THANKS AGAIN!!!!!

Wonderful place to go! It was a beautiful cottage and a wonderful lake! The neighbors were so nice! There were a couple of really hot days but the fans were a great help. It was so nice to be able to take the dog. She enjoyed it as much as we did!

Owner's Response: Thanks Amber, We are so glad your family enjoyed Thisisit Cottage. We were happy to have your family at our place for the week. We are thankful too, that we are on the side of the lake with the breezes on those warmer days, the fans pretty much do their job. We have a welsh terrier ourselves and she is very excited to be at the cottage as well. It helps she is a swimmer :) So we know how important is to have the ability to vacation with our four legged family member too. Thanks for the review and hope to see you in the future. The Hultens

This-is-it Was Great

What a beautiful place. Our three generation family of 9 enjoyed every minute of our vacation at This Is It. The accomodations are excellent. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. It is decorated beautifully. We especially loved having the pontoon available to fish and swim and just take rides on the lake. We would highly recommend This Is It to anyone who wants a great place to experience up north Michigan.
