We are a family of five in the SE area of Michigan. My husband and I have three children who keep us plenty busy with hockey. We both work full time and have each been with a Fortune 500 company for many years. This home is our favorite getaway and we are glad to share it with others. It has all the comforts of home and is a great place to make beautiful memories!
Shelly Ervin purchased this house in 2004
The view, the beach, the water! We have been all around Michigan and you can't beat this stretch of Lake Huron for pure sugar sand and great swimming. The home itself has so many views of the lake, you can't beat it. We put a lot of time and effort into decorating and upgrading the property. We have been very fortunate with wonderful guests who treat our home like their own. We promise you won't be disappointed.
Million dollar views! The layout of the house and windows gives great views of the lake.
The home is nestled between the piers of Oscoda and East Tawas so access to both towns is quick.
The AuSable River is just minutes away. Enjoy fishing, canoeing, or tubing on the river.
This fantastic beach-front home has great views of Lake Huron from the patio, living room, family room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. The home is fully furnished including a very nice game room. Our vacation experience actually exceeded our expectations.
We enoyed the long walks on the beautiful beach and the evenings around the fire pit. The fall color change provided great views all along the AuSable River scenic roadways.
Oscoda is a nice little town with many little shops and several good restaurants to enjoy.
My wife and I had a wonderful Fall visit staying at this beautiful beachfront home. The view of Lake Huron from the very large Living room windows is spectacular. It’s the perfect spot for morning coffee or to just sit and watch the water while being entertained by the squirrels playing. The spacious house is tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, giving a warm and inviting atmosphere that makes you feel right at home.
Sleeping in the comfortable master bedroom is very pleasant as we were lulled to sleep each night by the gentle sound of the waves on the beach. If you leave the blinds open, you can take a peek out the window at night and see the stars or maybe spot a passing ship way out in the lake. Be sure to wake up early so you don’t miss the sunrise.
We found this to be a great spot for a Fall getaway as the neighborhood has few people around this time of year, the bugs are gone, and the weather is cool and comfortable. The nearby River Road scenic byway is a great Fall color tour. And most of the shops in downtown East Tawas are open and uncrowded.
We can’t wait to go back again.
This lovely vacation home was everything we expected plus more! There is plenty of room to spread out ( open floor-plan) and the windows across the back family room allowed for beautiful morning sunrise views on Lake Huron. We loved our trip and want to stay again!
This was our first time at Ervin's Escape and Lake Huron. The house has perfect access to the beach, making it easy for families with kids of all ages. Instead of planning for a day at the beach and having to pack, we could just walk right out the back door. We enjoyed the fire pit, the volleyball net, and of course, the soft sand. The sleeping arrangements were also lovely with plenty of room for our family of six.
Unfortunately, the black flies decided to make an appearance, but a friendly neighbor came over and offered us her "skin so soft," which worked wonders.
Our kids were super excited about the "game room" and play structure, but the room was locked and the play structure seemed to have aged past usability. Neither mattered in the end, though, because the best fun was had on the beach.
The booking process with Shelly was fast and easy and the instructions were simple to follow.
This was our 4th summer stay at Ervin's Escape. The owners have made some really nice updates. It's full of convenience and comfort. The beach is amazing and everyone enjoyed it. Owners are super accommodating and always available.
We rented this property for a wedding we were attending. It couldn't have worked out better. Plenty of room for everyone and all the family that was stopping by. The beach is incredible. Nothing but beautiful sand. The house offered everything we needed, especially the 2 family rooms. Accommodations perfect. Close to everything, yet tucked away. We will certainly rent again.
