We stayed at Unit 12 - Bascom House the 1 bedroom cottage with queen bed. The bedroom was very comfortable; I’ve never slept so well. The open kitchen (w/ dishwasher & microwave), is also a dining and living area. Call or e-mail ahead of time for amenities, you may want to bring some items from home if you plan to cook. If you are missing anything, Kathy and Denis will accommodate your need. A grill is also available. It has a SINGLE (but comforting) whirlpool bath/shower and the bathroom includes a washer/dryer--the dryer was not working, but we received free tokens for the use of the resort dryer. Cozy and comfortable, but be prepared it is a cabin weekend, so no internet and the TV was small with few stations available so it gives you a chance to reconnect w/ family; and Hessel on the lake is a VERY family friendly environment with many outdoor games available, but bring playing cards and board games for inside time. We rented the Boston Whaler and went boating/fishing daily; the sunset was breathtaking and the Les Cheneaux Islands are a boaters paradise. Denis Fox made sure the boat was prepared for us every day. Hessel is fairly close to Drummond Island and Sault St. Marie which are great places to visit. You are a few feet from the water and Hessel is a warm little town; more charming than Cedarville which is only a boat ride away. Very reasonable priced for $865.00 for the week.
