Relaxing couple days away
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.
