About Shelly Ervin

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

Why Shelly Ervin chose Oscoda Township

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.

What makes this house unique

Million dollar views! The layout of the house and windows gives great views of the lake. It's also beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home.

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.

Wonderful Vacation Home for Couples and Families

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven spent Thanksgiving weekend at this beautiful home. The view overlooking the lake was breathtaking and the house had everything we needed. The location which is close to downtown Oscoda and not far from Tawas was exactly what we wanted. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. My only concern is that the security deposit ($2,000) seemed excessive but it was returned within a week after the rental. Thank you for sharing your home with our family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice review. You guys were wonderful guests. I wanted to let you know as owners we only stipulate a $500 security deposit but as soon as you decline the insurance Home Away offers they increase the security deposit to the $2000. This is something that is out of the owner's control. I just thought you should know that for your future rentals. Thanks again for taking wonderful care of our home.

Holiday's Excluded from Rate Quote System. Property Damage Protection is only for accidental damages. Anything the insurance company deemed not accidental is not covered which is why we ask for a refundable security deposit. We have been very blessed with great renters and it has not been an issue at all but I do like people to understand the process.
