Location, location and lots of sand/beach!
Welcome to sunny slope right on lake huron in beautiful downtown Oscoda. You get the best of both worlds with this newer rental; on a quiet street off of 23 right on the sugar sand beach of lake huron and you can walk to just about everything in the area: restaurants, bars, coffee shops, dairy queen and other ice cream shops, movie theater, bowling alley, putt putt golf, hair and nail salons for a mani/pedi and the city park which has playscapes for the kids and a skateboard park/ramp. You can walk to the park along the water, only a 5 minute walk. After a nice walk in town, on your way back stop at the family video rental for a movie and/or game rental. Walk to the farmer's market on wednesdays. If you prefer, take a nice long leisure walk along beautiful lake huron.
