A relaxing house and Lake. The boat was something the kids and I enjoyed every day. Lots of great fishing and family time. Not far from canoeing the beautiful Au Sable River and close to the town of tawas for shopping and dining.
We stayed at "This Is It' in June. It was a great vacationing spot for us Michiganers and our relatives from Wisconsin. Everyone enjoyed how the cottage was decorated. The use of the boats was great, plus we brought up a jet ski. The youngest in our group 7 month old Andrew really enjoyed relaxing in the water for hours on end. We hope to come back and rent again some day.
This was our first rental cottage experience and it was a great one. The cottage itself was just right for our family. The pontoon boat was a real treat. The lake was warm, shallow and sandy. We had a 2yr old, a 7 and a 9 year old and they couldn't get enough of the water. There was also plenty of room for 3 adult couples. We had bonfires and s'mores everynight. We also liked that the cottage was pet friendly. We would highly recommend this property to any family looking to have a memorable vacation experience.
We cruised around on the pontoon as well as doing some serious fishing. As the oldest and least experienced fisherman catching the largest fish (large mouth bass) was highlight of my trip. The water off dock was clean and clear. One morning my 2 yr old grandaughter and I were feeding the small fish off the dock and a beautiful bald eagle landed just 2 docks over. I had never seen an eagle that close up in the wild. It was breath taking. We also saw a couple of beavers. Inside the decor was really nice and beds very comfortable. We took our own drinking water and would advise this if you don't like the taste and smell of well water. Melody and Randy were very helpful with requests prior to our booking. Neighbors were friendly. We hope to return next year when a bit warmer so we can actually wade or swim off dock area. We highly recommend this spacious Lake House.
Your Thisisit cottage provided our extended family with the perfect setting for a magical vacation week. With a superb location on West Londo Lake, and thoughtful appointments and accessories in every room, we were completely delighted. Plus, it had a perfect waterfront, complete with fire-ring and sturdy benches, pontoon boat, fishing boat and paddle-boat and a wonderful swimming and floating area. We loved waking to the call of the loons every morning. Your pontoon boat was teh center of activity for the daylight hours. Everybody wanted a turn, with enjoyable swimming experiences off the reed islands, touring the lake and enjoying the wide variety of very well-kept cottages and homes, and feeling the wind in our faces. The fishing boat was used several times each day by the younger folks. Hearty dinners were followed every evening by happy gatherings around the bonfire blazing int the fire-ring, munching on S'mores and watching the tranquil sunsets. Very good for the soul. We've rented several cottages the past ten years, for our family vacations, and the Thisisit cottage was the best one we've found yet. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.
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.
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!
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!!!!!
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!
Our family rented this cottage last weekend in August. I cannot say enough great things about this place. We had 4 kids ages 3 to 12 and they all had a blast. This cottage has every amenity possible for the whole family to enjoy. The owner Melody was amazing to deal with. Informative and helpful on all matters. This lake is beautiful and great for swimming and boating. The pontoon boat was awesome and a ton of fun. Cottage itself is well kept and clean upon arrival. We will definitely be returning next summer. Thanks for the great family memories!
