About Paul Elia
Retired from Ford Motor Company Jan 2017
Paul Elia purchased this House in 1995
Why Paul Elia chose Oscoda Township
We bought this lot in 1988 and built our house in 1995. For the last 21 years, this house has provided great memories for my entire family as small boys going "Up North" to the cabin and hanging out and playing on the beach. The next generation has already started where my three grand kids are now coming up north with their parents to make there own memories now....
What makes this House unique
Beautiful relaxing views of the lake. It feels like being on the ocean. My best time of the day is in the morning sitting on the deck drinking a cup of coffee and watching the sun come up and cooking outside in the evening with a glass of wine looking out over the lake. Evening camp fires are very special as well.

Perfect getaway spot!
We loved our time at the Morning Glory and every morning you get to see why it is called that with the most amazing sunrises over the lake. Paul is great to work with and seems to really care that you enjoy your time at his house. He responds immediately to all messages and will provide you with a ton of useful information if you want it. My wife and I stayed here with our three small children and it could not have been more perfect. Everything in the house, from pots and pans to beach chairs to the knives are quality and we really appreciated that! The beach is amazing and the weather was perfect! Thanks for a great vacation!
Justen thank for the kind review. As we use the house all the time ourselves we strive to have and maintain nicer things in the house. Something as small as good and sharp cutlery do make a big difference with people and I am so happy you recognized it. I also get a kick out of dealing with other people who love to smoke meats as much as I do and view you as a kindred spirit in this regard. One of these days I need to a smoke a pork butt as well as that is one of the meats I have not made yet . I truly hope you keep us in mind the next time you are looking for a vacation spot in Oscoda as I definitely enjoyed having you as a guest.
Great Beach House!
Set back through woods from US-23: you're not right next to noisy road traffic
Great clean beach right outside the back door
Beach is shallow for quite awhile, good for kids
Nice clean Weber grill
Fire pit & firewood
Plenty of windows to see the beach
Friendly; let me back in hours after checkout when I forgot a bag
tl;dr totally recommend
Jeff thanks for the kind review and taking good care of our home. As water has been rising over the last four years we are starting to approach the historical high water mark which puts the beach pretty close to the house which is very nice for many reasons. As we discussed would love to have you back as a guest any time. If there is a date you would like to reserve in 2019 let me now and I will unblock it in the system for you.
The perfect vacation beach home!
After viewing many vacation rentals we chose Morning Glory because of its cabiny but yet cozy modern feel with updated appliances, quality furnishings, and remarkable water views. We love the setting as you approach it through a private wooded drive and as you head into the spacious home it is light and bright with fantastic views of Lake Huron. Not only did the kids enjoy the paddleboard provided, but Grandma was in heaven kayaking north along the lake. (kids joked that Alpena police might have to track her down!)
This beautiful beach home was instrumental in providing our family with a vacation filled with treasured memories. Thank you!
Evelyn thank you for the kind review. I really appreciate that you drove all the way from Colorado to spend time with your grandchildren and that our house was a key part in you’re family having what sounds like a wonderful and memorable vacation. From one grand parent to another, I know how important that is and how precious these moments are. If you are ever in the Oscoda area again please keep us in mind as we would love to have you as a guest again.
Beautiful home. Great views of Lake Huron. Spotless upkeep and all supplies, necessities provided
Really enjoyed our 5 day stay. Nice sandy beach, spacious feel to home, away from highway enough to be private and quiet. Very thoughtful and complete provisions.
Kathy thank you for the kind review of our property. We do our best to make sure the house is always well stocked when you arrive where the only thing you need to bring is your luggage and food and I appreciate you noting that. My wife also appreciated that you noticed the Trillium and lady slippers on the property which she goes out of her way to protect and promote their growth. You were there first guest to note that.....
We just ended our stay at Morning Glory what a positive experience. Everything was perfect. The house was amazing. So comfortable and clean and had anything you would need. Would definitely stay again. Beautiful area. Promptly received deposit back
Mary thank you for the kind review and for taking such good care of our house. If you're in the Oscoda area again in the future, please keep us in mind as we would love to have you back as a guest.
Beautiful home on a gorgeous stretch of lake Huron
Everything was great. Very up to date appliances, TV, grill. Comfy beds & furniture. We loved our stay. Just remember it faces east, so the sun rises are brilliant!
Michelle thank you so much for the kind review. Sun rises are quite magnificent in the morning. I love drinking my coffee on the deck in the morning and looking out over the lake is definitely a great way to start the day
