OSCODA AREA - RELAX AND ENJOY FAMILY TIME ON A LAKE HURON SUGAR SAND BEACH

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!

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

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!

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).

What a Fabulous Place!

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?

A charming lakeside cottage

We stayed here with a large group and loved it! It is like staying in someone's home. Their large collection of toys, books, and water equipment suited everyone. From the 2 yr old to the 65 yr old, there was something for everyone. The upper beach area/fire pit was great for the kids to play and adults to relax. The older kids enjoyed the kayaks and canoe that were available as well as the bikes. Great location as well. We canoed/tubed on the Au Sable river and also enjoyed a trip into East Tawas. The cottage was clean and well stocked. The back bedroom even had room for a crib that we brought The owner was easy to work with as well.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage and we appreciate your kind review! We never tire of the view to the lake, walking on the beach with our family and dogs, and evening camp fires and we are glad that you were able to share our cottage with your family.
