Welcome to the serenity of Oak Beach. This charming and cozy two bedroom cottage is less than a minute's walk to the private beach area where you can walk for miles on the white sand. Make yourself at home in front of the fireplace, or relax on the deck with a cold beverage. This peaceful cottage whispers relaxation and is sure to be the vacation to recharge your batteries. An excellent meat market and small grocery are within walking distance, and tourist attractions abound in either direction with Caseville to the west and Port Austin to the east. Enjoy our local festivals and farmer's markets and that up north feeling without the big drive.
Pets: Please ask before bringing your dog or other pets. While we are pet lovers, we also know that some dogs can be a handful, and unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will always allow dogs at our cottage. Our policy is a little gray at this point , and until we decide one way or the other, we encourage you to ask.
Activities: Oak Beach Cottage is close to many memory making activities. Miniature golf, canoeing, and nature trails are all within walking distance. M-25, the closest major roadway, offers an ample shoulder for biking to either Port Austin or Caseville. The cottage itself is equipped with board games, movies, and books for those rare rainy days when being outside is not an option.

About Dale and Joni Thompson
My wife and I live near Frankenmuth, Michigan. I am retired but my wife still works. We love to travel and almost always stay at a homeaway property.
Dale and Joni Thompson purchased this Cottage in 1965
Why Dale and Joni Thompson chose Hume
Oak Beach Cottage was my home until my wife and I got married in 2002. When our lives got too busy that we weren't able to spend much time at the cottage ourselves, we decided to use it as a rental. We still care for it as though we live there and hope you find it to be a comfortable home base for your vacation stay.

First I have to thank Dale for being the best owner of ANY VRBO or Homeaway property I have ever dealt with! This guy is old school and really cares about your stay. Very pleasant and accommodating. The house was immaculate and equipped with everything we needed and much more. There was a garden that we could pick what we wanted. The beach is just around the corner. House was cleaner than my house and the deck was just awesome. We spent most of our time out there since the beach was windy and a little colder at times despite it being August. We just had a bit of a stretch of cooler weather, but that's Michigan. We are hoping to stay there again if we can get back in, but his little cottage from heaven is finding quite a following and we are already bummed about not getting in this year due to it already being booked for the dates we were considering. Used the barbecue a couple times and it grilled great. He also has a shed where he keeps anything else you might need, like all the stuff for the beach, and he has thought of pretty much everything. He even has a battery powered cork remover for you wine lovers, which my wife is. Dale is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and he gives you a tour and covers everything when you arrive. Except for one loud set of neighbors partying well into the early morning hours a couple nights by their fire pit, I have NO complaints. But that was because we slept with the windows open. The only wish we would have is to have a fire pit somewhere on the property. There is definitely room for one on this large property. Dale, thanks for making such a great escape out of your former living quarters and being such a great guy to deal with. Hope to see you again soon.
clean, cozy & convenient!

We loved our stay here. The cottage was lovely, the bed was comfortable, and the fireplace was perfect for our rainy weekend. A short walk to the beach everyday. The hosts were responsive. We'd go back anytime.
Beautiful, clean & cozy
We Loved staying here. The owners made this hassle free and were very polite and easygoing. This cottage was perfect for my family and my little ones had no problem sleeping here. Beautiful, very very clean/organized, kitchen has cabinets full of necessities & warm/cozy.... Can’t say enough about this home.
Super clean and so comfortable. A one minute walk to a beautiful beach and lovely neighbors.
It was absolutely charming. I will be back. Great location, super clean and neat. Everything you could possibly need was supplied. The neighborhood was the best. Super friendly people . I am a recent widow and appreciated not feeling isolated. The beach was tranquil and the sunsets were amazing. Peaceful, quiet and comfortable. What more could you ask for?
Beautiful home, well maintained. Everything we needed was there. The kids loved the garden and my husband and I loved the ability to use the fireplace as the nights were chilly. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental in which the owners have thought of everything.
