Equipped with dish network, DVD/CD & portable radio & patio fire pit to use. There is a full size charcoal grill on the uncovered brick patio along with a couple of chairs & a picnic table.

There is a bike/rollerblade/walking path right outside the front door which will take you around all 7 lakes in the area. A playground is located around the corner and a public beach/picnic area on Sand Lake is about 1/4 mile, restaurants, gas station & additional stores (all along the bike path).

About Susan

My husband's family built a cottage (with Sand Lake access) down the street in 1978. When his parents decided to sell the property we decided to purchase our property on Sand Lake. It is only 3 hours from where we live so we travel there often to 'get out of the city.'

Susan purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Susan chose National City

The cottage is only 10 miles from East Tawas and Lake Huron. There is a bike/rollerblade/walking path right outside the front door which will take you around all 7 lakes in the area. There is also a playground right around the corner and plenty of other children to play with in the area. We are located about 15 minutes from East Tawas where there is plenty of shopping, a long pier for fishing, beaches on Lake Huron, etc. We are also about 30 minutes either way from Omer & Oscoda where there are canoe rentals.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautifully renovated, open concept cottage on beautiful private sandy beach/lakefront on (all sports) Sand Lake. Our cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and dining area that is open to the living room. Enjoy the relaxation on the patio or enjoy the private beach. The water is so clear and sandy with a slow gradual slope and you can even see the snails making trails in the water! There is also a dock for swimming when weather permits. There is also a shared fire pit on the beach. Take a short walk to Huron National Forest State Park, playground and local stores for ice cream, pizza, movie rentals and other necessities.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first lake vacation and it won't be the last! The house was perfect for our family of 4. Sue and Scott were great. It was nice having the party store across the street. My girls loved going over after dinner and getting ice cream.

The house had everything we needed and more. Just an overall great week!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation! The cottage was very clean and was perfect for 2 Adults and 2 kids. The location to the beach was great, we could watch the kids swim from the cabin. Susan was great, she checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. We rented a jet ski for the day and had a blast! The party store across the street was very convenient and had pretty good food. This was by far the most relaxing vacation we have every had. Definitely would stay again!

Great location! Very clean! Lovely lake!

  • 5 of 5

Hosts were very accommodating and very good at communicating. We loved the lake, the community, and the cabin! It was so nice having the lake pretty much to ourselves during the week days. The cabin is also within walking distance to a local bar/restaurant and party store which is really convenient. We really hope to visit again someday!

Perfect place for swimming

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect place for someone who just needs a place to sleep, shower, and eat. We stayed with our two small children and unfortunately had a few rain days, which made staying in this cabin a little stuffy. When the weather did clear we absolutely loved the beach! It was perfect for our small children and didn’t need to worry about how far they were going out into the water as it was a very gradual incline. The “bike path” was essentially just the side of the road, and again with small children I was very nervous going on rides as the people in the area drive way too fast for my comfort. The store across the street was VERY convenient and the staff was great! I would recommend this place for a couple without children.

Very cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time and beautiful lake. Thought from the picture there was more sand beach but all grass. Cottage was very nice and cozy. The TV never worked but we were outside most of the time.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you and your family had a good time and liked the cabin and location. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of the TV not operating properly. Next time, please contact me and I will send someone over to fix the issue for you. As for the beach, Sand Lake is a spring fed lake so every year the water level of the lake changes. Unfortunately, this year the lake level is higher so the beach is relatively smaller (beach is only about 5 feet from the water).

Fun and cozy family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with our family of 6 and our beagle! It was cozy but we enjoyed our week of tiny living! We hiked in the national park, visited the lighthouse at Tawas Point, spent the day at the Lake Huron beach, and spent countless hours at our beachfront at the house. The lake was lower so the kids were able to walk out quite a ways in the sand! We convieniently ordered delicious food and ice cream from the store across the street! We watched movies and cooked a lot of our meals at the house. We enjoyed our stay and our kids are continuously asking if we can go back! We would have loved to have a dishwasher at the house!
