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 29 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.
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.
Our family of 6 started our summer vacation off here, with a bang, at this amazing property. I am telling you that EVERYTHING you could possibly need, is HERE! No detail went unnoticed. The cottage was beautifully decorated with that rustic, cabin look. Fully stocked, updated kitchen had every single possible thing you would need and more. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were comfy. My kids LOVED the boat and beach area. The kayaks were a total hit too. We spent a lot of time outside, playing in the sand and just enjoying the peace and quiet. The surrounding neighbors were friendly too! My boys enjoyed exploring the sandbar and the "Loon island", as they called it, in the Kayak's. We also got to see a bald eagle. The sunsets were unreal. Talk about front row seats to God's handiwork! A small town is located just minutes away with a grocery store that sells the most AMAZING fresh bread. We also were very close to some great sights like Lumberman's Monument and Huron National Park. We LOVED this stay so much that we are hoping to make it one of our annual family getaways. After a full week here, we were all sad to leave. It truly felt like home! A special thank you to Melody and Randy for making this cottage so cozy. You guys went above and beyond to meet the needs of your guests. <3
My husband, myself and our German Shepherd rented the house for a weekend. Had an amazing time. Very relaxing. The house was in wonderful condition. Great little beach area out back along with a pontoon boat. We brought our fishing gear and caught some nice bass and a northern pike. Our dog was crazy over the beach and water and did tons of swimming. He was pooped! There's also some great hiking trails about 20 minutes north of the house in the state park. Would definitely rent again :)
We loved your cottage - it was the perfect fit for us! The location made it seem like we were away from it all, but we were still able to get to a pizza place or the grocery store without a crazy long drive. The beach area and kayaks kept my kids (15 & 13) and dog entertained for HOURS. Add in the boat, and our family was set! Well, and the lounge chairs for this mom to sit in the sun, both on the beach and on the deck, and read. haha The fishing was a bummer, but you never know if that was the fisherman's issue or not. ;) The trees and lake breezes kept us cool even on the hottest days of July. We trekked over to Lumberman's Monument and the Iargo Springs which are definitely worth the trip. I dare you to keep your bare feet in that water for longer than 20 seconds!!
Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful lake cottage! What an amazing week we had!
We stayed for a week at this-is-it-too. We had a great time lounging, boating, kayaking, and enjoying the loons and sunsets. The remodel is very nice, the bonfire pit and seating area were really great, there was plenty of firewood, and Melody was really easy to work with. Will definitely consider going back!
Randy & Melody, WOW! As return renters of your cottage, this is the best word to express the family's reaction to seeing all your updates. Totally new kitchen, enlarged, new floor, new cabinets, new appliances, big and small, new living room furniture, new ceiling, new picturesque wall and a wonderful new walk in shower. I can not complement you enough on a terrific project. We look forward to returning in the coming years and have recommended your property to other relatives and friends.
We really enjoyed our week at Thisisit-Too. The house was well maintained. The owners thought of a lot and included many little extras. We really enjoyed using the pontoon and fishing on the lake was great. They even had a cleaning station. The kids enjoyed the sandy beach and we all enjoyed using the kayaks. During our time we almost had the lake to ourselves. It was so peaceful.
