Property description

We invite you to stay at our cottage on the 'Golden Mile' of Lake Huron. Our cottage is secluded from US-23 and sits on 110' feet of private beach. This unique shore line allows you to walk several miles along the sandy beach collecting shells and beach glass.

This quaint 3 bedroom, 1 bath cottage offers many amenities, including new kithchen with all new appliances, fully stocked with cookware and dining supplies for 10+. New 32' LED TV in living room and a washer and dryer in basement. The charming front porch off the living room offers a perfect spot for relaxing with a book, sipping your morning coffee or enjoying an evening beverage.

The private beach is very wide and deep, affording you the ability to play frisbee, throw the football, sit around the bonfire or sit back in the adorondack chairs and spend evening hours star gazing. We envite you to enjoy our three kayaks for fun times on the water or a relaxing game of horseshoes in the backyard.

We are conveniently located between AuGres and the town of East Tawas where you can walk the city docks, shop, eat, or catch an evening movie at the local downtown theatre.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We purchased this cottage in 1995 from the original owner. We live in Birmingham, Michigan. My husband grew up vacationing at his family cottage a few doors down. We selected this location because of the familiarty, the beautiful sandy beach and sand bar. It is perfect for swimming and boating. We are less than 2.5 hours from home which gave us alot of flexibility with getaways. This is our little haven and we cherish our time that we spend here. Because of many committments this summer we are not able to spend the entire summer enjoying our cottage. This is the first time renting for us, so we hope that we can share our summer delights with others who appreciate kicking back and enjoying family and friends. Nancy and Pat
