Oscoda house description

Location, location and lots of sand! Welcome to Sunny Slope Beach House. Located right on Lake Huron with 80 feet of soft sugar sand beach, on a quiet street off of US 23 centrally located in the heart of Oscoda, Mi. You get the best of both worlds with this rental; on the waterfront, lots of sand for the kids to play, volleyball, relax and you can walk to just about everything - restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, movie theater, putt putt golf, bowling, the city park with free concerts in the park and so much more.

If you like Lake Michigan's sandy beach, you will Love Oscoda and Lake Huron! Our beach house property is flat, no stairs to climb down to get to the beach. It's all sand, no brush or path to walk through. Paradise right out the door onto the deck and beach!

The Gailes at Lakewood Shores - One of the best golf courses in Michigan, listed in the top 10, is just a few miles away. If you enjoy golfing this is one you don't want to miss out.

We are also only 15 minutes from East Tawas and all they have to offer as well. Enjoy both cities, one in walking distance and one a short drive.

This vacation home is tastefully decorated in neutral tones. Many dining options; inside at the long counter and attached table or dine outdoors on the deck. In the evening, light a fire in the firepit outside or in the fall enjoy the gas fireplace while watching a show or movie on the flat screen tv. Kids and adults can enjoy air hockey and many board game options. Just in case, there is a wii game system as well.


Master bedroom has a kingsize bed, bay window and doorwall. Master bedroom faces the water. Guest rooms include a queen size bed in one room and 2 twin bunk beds (total of 4 beds). There is a full bath on the main floor and a full bath upstairs between the 2 bedrooms. Washer and dryer included in case you need to do a quick load.

The owners have rented through other places in the past and have tried to anticipate the needs of renters. Many extras are provided to make your vacation a little smoother.

If there is something you don't see, please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

We hope you will enjoy spending your vacation time or a nice long weekend at sunny slope beach house.

You can walk to the park along the water, only a 5 minute walk. After a nice walk in town, on your way back stop at the family video rental for a movie and/or game rental. Walk to the farmer's market on wednesdays. If you prefer, take a nice long leisure walk along beautiful lake huron or have a massage right on your own beach. Paradise.

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: This beach house is our dream come true. We searched for several years every summer until we found what we were looking for. We have renovated it to give it more of a 'beachy' vacation feel. We hope our guests will enjoy it and especially take good care of it.

                  Why the Owner Chose Oscoda:
                  It's a great location right in town and yet still very private, lots of soft sand, walking distance to many things.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  On a quiet street yet right in town and walking distance to so many things.
