About Martha and Jeff Gottlieb

Martha grew up in the Birmingham/Bloomfield, MI area and spent her summers at the 'cabin' (now our Lake House) since she was a child. Jeff grew up in the New Jersey area and lived in California for 15 years. Martha and Jeff met in California and moved back to Michigan to be closer to family and experience the change of seasons that was missing in CA.

Martha and Jeff Gottlieb purchased this house in 1950

Why Martha and Jeff Gottlieb chose Michigan

Martha has been coming to Oscoda since she was born. Martha's grandparents originally built a small 2 bedroom 1 bath cabin as an extra space (to accommodate all the children and grandchildren) to the log cabin they owned next door. This small cabin was given to Martha's mother when her mom passed away. When Martha's mom passed away, Martha and Jeff purchased the property from Martha's siblings. Martha and Jeff renovated the cabin to make it year round and expanded to accommodate family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Unbelievable sunrises, miles of beautiful beaches to walk and the sound of Lake Huron from the house and bedrooms. It is just amazingly beautiful here. The east side of Northern, MI is truly a well kept secret.

Fantastic Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at this property several times over the years and have always had a great experience. Martha and Jeff are the ideal hosts and unusually sensitive to the needs of their guests. I highly recommend taking advantage of their healthy retreat services--you won't find better anywhere. They owners will work with you to tailor your ideal retreat. The house is in a lovely, quiet location with plenty of beach. There is an aura of calm the minute you walk in. Lots of sunlight, lots of room, but a cozy atmosphere. Impeccably clean and well-maintained. Tons of stuff to do in the area, depending on the types of activities you enjoy. The hosts will go out of their way to help you have the best VRBO experience ever. Every time I have out of state guests, I try to plan a trip to this property to show off Michigan's natural beauty and hospitality.

Fun Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay and enjoy the lake and fall colors! The Gottliebs are wonderful and they make you feel so welcome. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We absolutely loved the view. Spent lots of time outdoors, walking on the never ending sandy beach, went bike riding, and hiked in the woods. We highly recommend staying here!

Wonderful Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with privacy but located just a few minutes away from stores and other activities. The home is just spectacular! Very large with private bedrooms and bathrooms. It is beautifully decorated. The home is spotless and has all you need for your stay. The views from the home are breathtaking. Sunrises are incredible! The beach and lake are the best! You can walk for miles on sandy beach or just sit and enjoy looking out at the beautiful blue waters of Lake Huron. We have stayed here many times and in every season and always have a wonderful relaxing time. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation rental in Michigan.
