Nice and owners very accomodating and nice.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time and cabin was very comfortable. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the water pressure is not great. Thanks Jim & Jan for being so hospitable.

Relaxing couple days away

  • 4 of 5

Upon arriving at the property we were greeted by Jim and his wife who gave us a quick tour and demo of the cottage. The air was quite heavy in there and it was difficult for me to breathe the first few hours we were there. There is no AC in the cottage, so be prepared for that. We were staying in mid-August. Overall, we comfortable temperature wise and enjoyed having the windows open all day/night letting the cool breeze in. The owners have many videos and DVDs to use and also a small selection of games, as well as a deck of cards. These things were quite useful for us because it rained most of the time we were there. The property is on a small part, about 100 yards from the main part of South Dease Lake. The owners offered to let us use their kayaks or canoes, which was awesome! Definitely check out Lumbermans Monument and Iargo Springs. These two experiences are not to be missed in Hale. We also drove out to Tawas where they have a Wal-Mart, many bars and restaurants and a nice beach. We were sad to miss tubing with Rollway Resort, so definitely check that out. Main Street Pizza was decent enough...stay away from Big Bobs Diner on M65.

Nice

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time. Water frontage, big yard, boat launch close by, pet friendly, super nice owners. It was really everything we needed. The lake is private, good sized with little boat traffic when we were there. Kids enjoyed the swim platform in the lake and had fun tubing. Putting my boat in and leaving it tied up in front of the house was great. Plenty of room for barbecuing, yard games, and our 2 dogs. We also caught a few nice fish right in the canal.

The house was fine. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. No TV or internet and very spotty cell phone coverage (Verizon). It would've been nice to at least have been able to watch the news at night but it was ok. We went there to be outside and it delivered well on that.

Overall a great place. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Very glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay unplugged. Too bad you lost that big pike on your last day. You'll get him next time :)

2 bedroom cottage in Hale, MI

  • 3 of 5

This was understood to be a somewhat bare-bones rental, with no TV or internet, which was great for the very quiet weekend that we needed. House was clean. Hosts were friendly, helpful and very flexible about arrival time. Everything worked. As with a lot of cottages, it could have been aired out and heated up better before our arrival. Plenty of nice clean blankets and towels. Kitchen was supplied with a number of condiments, but was missing cooking oil for popcorn. In general though, this was a bargain and exactly what we needed.

Beautiful cabin by the lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband, puppy, and I had a great stay over the past weekend. The owner and his family were extremely nice and went above and beyond to make this a memorable vacation. Would most definitely stay there again.
