Overview

About the property

Fully furnished, two bedroom cottage on Lake Huron

This is a beautiful, two-bedroom cottage on a sandy stretch of Lake Huron beach. You have a full view of Lake Huron (east facing) from the living room and the kitchen/dining room. You can watch the sun rise above the Lake while sipping your morning brew from either the kitchen or living room.

The cottage comes fully furnished with linens, towels, pots, pans, plates, bowls, utensils, and other kitchen supplies. Each bedroom has a closet and full dresser available for you to unpack and make yourself comfortable. Beds are wrapped with bedbug covers and are on anti-bedbug stilts, and are inspected frequently, so rest easy!

Wireless internet, a 30' LCD HD Smart TV (offering nearly 80 channels), electric fireplace, and complimentary NetFlix and Pandora streaming means you can also enjoy rainy days or a getaway during the cooler months!

With one queen size bed, one full size bed, and one single size sofa sleeper, this cottage can fit up to 5 people. Due to the single bathroom, however, we recommend limiting this to the equivalent of four adults; but the many sleeping locations offers great flexibility for children!

The property also offers the use of three shared decks with fire pits, charcoal grills, a small playground, volleyball net, basketball hoop, and convenient access to a party store (Pete's) within walking distance.

Surfside is located close to many outdoor activities; Tubing/kayaking/canoeing on the Au Sable, hiking in the Huron National Forest, taking a riverboat cruise on the Au Sable, or just taking a long walk on the beach.

Have a large family, requiring the use of multiple cottages? We can work with you to arrange rentals from other units within the Surfside complex to help accommodate large family gatherings!

The beach is beautiful sand, with a gentle slope and multiple sand bars. It's fun for experienced swimmers, and very safe for young children.

Please be aware of the maximum occupancy of 6 people. This applies to both the cottage itself, and the use of the property. Renters may not host large gatherings or parties exceeding the 6 person limit. We've had problems in the past with this, and the other owners are (rightfully) not appreciative of this. Thanks for your understanding!

Trailers and motorcycles are also not permitted on the property. Unfortunately, they are disallowed due to the HOA rules for the complex.

Why Lindsay Peters chose Oscoda Township

We've been visiting this property with our extended family for nearly 30 years. We LOVE it up there, and finally decided to buy one of our own, as did two other family members. We love the views, the relaxation, and the family-friendly atmosphere.

Love Surfside, quiet, private and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Beach is great for sunning and not too deep for small children, several sand bars make it fun for bigger kids as it creates waves for them to "surf" on (bring some of those styrofoam kids surfboards!) and you can keep your eyes on the beach right from the deck or living room. Love listening to the sounds of the water, our daughter was amazed at seeing the moon rise over Lake Huron and the stars on a clear night are insane! I found out that there are only a few units for rent here, the rest are privately owned, so we really had the whole place to ourselves. Cabin was neat, clean and had a little bit of everything you need, beds were a bit too firm for our taste but otherwise everything was great. Plenty of blankets, fans in each room, pots, pans, glasses, dishes, utensils, toaster, coffee maker, all stocked with the basic kitchen essentials. You may need to bring more pillows if you like to have more than 1 or 2 for each person. The gas grill has seen better days so we never used it. There a quite a few dvd's for all ages and a few games in the footstool. Wifi worked great, cable tv, Netflix give you options for a rainy day, but no tv's in bedrooms. There really aren't any good restaurants in Oscoda, G's pizza was the only place that was "o.k." (my 9 year old thought they had the best chicken strips she ever had) I read reviews for every restaurant in town and thought I had the good places for dinner figured out but all the good reviews must have been the owners friends/relatives because every place we went was a disappointment. You may be better off heading south to Tawas to find something decent for dinner. Conoe rental places, fast food, Kmart, couple small grocery store are all right down the street for anything you need. For sun and fun and all the sandy beach you want to yourself, this is a great place to just chill with the family!

Lovely, quiet place to relax and enjoy the beautiful water of lake Huron and spectacular sunrises. Glad to have a comfortable living room and kitchen and lots of windows to bring in the fresh air. Would absolutely rent again!

Such a cute place! Perfect for a small family vacation with beautiful views.. Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was amazing. The perfect getaway to relax. Ecspecially great for a small family with children. The cabin is clean and the views are amazing. Sit at the kitchen table or relax on the couch all while staring at your view of the beach and lake. The beach is only steps from the front door. The water is perfect for small children with lots of areas only around 3 to 4 feet deep. You can't beat the sunrises which you can see on your own private deck. There is even a shared small playground good for children as well. The owners are very nice and quick to respond. We will be back for sure! Couldn't have asked for a better small cottage for our first family vacation. :)
