Overview

Oscoda Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2-3 bedroom, 1.5 bath full service cottage with a spectacular Lake Huron view

Lift your head off your pillow in the master bedroom to watch the sun rise over Lake Huron, then snooze a bit more or head down to the beach for an early morning beach walk or kayak on a flat surfaced Lake Huron. Kids can either sleep close in bunk beds in the master bedroom or in bunk beds in a separate bedroom (2 bunks sleep 4). A back room has another full size bed for a happy couple such that the cottage can handle 4 adults and at least as many kids. A full kitchen and laundry area complement the home. As the day advances and the breeze picks up, sail in a sunfish or windsurf from the beach or head a few miles south to Oscoda for a float trip in canoes, kayaks, or tubes along the AuSable River. Or take a bike ride around Cedar Lake or just lie on the beach and enjoy the sun. As the day comes to an end, mix up some margaritas and grill up a feast (or order pizza) and watch the amazing sunset colors develop over Lake Huron. As the sun sets, start a fire on the upper beach, make s'mores, sing some songs, or tell ghost stories while watching shooting stars and satellites overhead.

Also a great escape in the winter to a cozy cottage with a fireplace, a table for jigsaw puzzling, or a nice couch for reading (or snoozing) - both with great views of Lake Huron! Adventure outside for walks along the frozen beach with ice flows extending varying distances into the lake. Nearby you can also find several groomed X-country ski trails. Return to the cottage to warm up by a fire with hot chocolate or some soup and then enjoy games with the family or movies on the big screen with a LCD projector.

Turn off your connections to the outside world - there is no cable TV or internet service at the cottage and cell phone service varies with carrier (all can be found a few miles away in Oscoda) - you've come to the cottage to relax and reconnect with family and loved ones - not be connected to the world!

About Hal Schott

My wife and I are veterinarians that work at Michigan State University and have busy careers and lives trying to keep up with our jobs and our two children. Our kids were 10 and 7 when we bought the cottage and despite soccer, cross-country, and other school events, we are always game for a drive 'up north' for a night, weekend, or hopefully a longer respite.

Hal Schott purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Hal Schott chose Oscoda

We fell in love with this area of Lake Huron when we visited friends in the area. We purchased the cottage with the goal of 'slowing down' intermittently and having quality family time. Days on the lake, whether summer or winter, start with a family breakfast followed by a beach walk with our dogs. The days continue largely unplanned but typically end with a family dinner and campfire or movies on the big screen. Whether we are there for a day, a weekend, or a couple of weeks, we have never once been ready to leave when we had to return to reality. We are convinced that this has been the single most important investment in quality family life and we hope that you may also experience the relaxation and reconnection that we experience every time we visit the lake!

What makes this cottage unique

Relax, revive, and reconnect with loved ones and family. There is no daily schedule to keep and plenty of opportunity to slow down and enjoy the passing of time (the meaning of life according to James Taylor).

Great Place for ALL Families!

  • 5 of 5
We had 2 adults and 5 kids from age 8-16 and this was perfect! The house is set up so that we never felt crowded and there was something for everyone. The owners are extremely easy to work with and include so many things with the rental that all we needed were clothes and food! From kayaks to fishing poles to bikes and beach towels...it was so nice to have all this available. The yard is very large and stocked with chairs, firepit, volleyball court, etc.

It was so much better than we had even expected from looking at the photos. I felt it was VERY reasonably priced for everything you get and we would consider booking again in a heartbeat!

Forth of July week

  • 5 of 5
Very nice home with beautiful view of Lake Huron. House was comfortable with plenty of sleeping room and seating. Kitchen had everything we needed and the owners even offered us to use his spices and condiments. Large yard with boardwalk to sandy beach and beach toys (kayaks, water trampoline, sailboard and beach toys for little ones) Also set up bad-mitten and volleyball. Town of Harrisville to the North and Towas to the South for shopping but most stores close early. Definitely would recommend this property!

What a Fabulous Place!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage for a week in August of 2013. The cottage is right on the beach which made for convenient access back and forth especially since we had our new baby with us. The cottage is only 2.5 hours away from Mackinaw City and it was a perfect day trip to the island for our family. The cottage was clean and spacious. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing week at the beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review and we're pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage! We never tire of the beach or other water sports such as kayaking on Lake Huron at sunrise or a lazy afternoon float down the AuSable River. We noticed a large mound of sand at the upper beach indicating that your kids had a great time playing there, possibly burying their parent in the sand?
