Denis is the owner and he was very helpful and accomodating. I would definitely stay again. There is a marina just a block away and a small beach on the... More

We stayed in cabin 11, a cabin for 2-4 people. Well cared for, clean. The owners of Hessel on the Lake were helpful during our brief weekend stay.

We found this place online while searching for a place to get away. Besides the beautiful location on the water in Hessel, MI in the Les Cheneaux area, the owners Dennis and Kathy Fox were fantastic, the cabins are very clean extremely well cared for, and in excellent condition. All we had to bring was our food and our own... More
