immaculate, compact house right on the beach with everything you need
This cottage is located north of Ossineke about ten minutes from "downtown" Alpena, which is experiencing a bit of a renaissance. Several new restaurants have opened in the past few years - try Austin Brothers north of town, a great new brewpub where you can play cornhole while waiting for a table. Despite being right off US-23, the location is quiet and safe. We saw a lot of wildlife - eagles, squirrels and the occasional fox.
The cottage itself is great. It's only about 700 sq feet or so, but incorporates all you didn't realize you needed at the beach before you experienced the convenience of having them - air conditioning, washer/dryer, dishwasher and garbage disposal. The beds are comfortable and plenty of linens are provided. It was immaculate and well maintained.
The beach is wonderful. Lots of sugar sand and no weeds in the water so you can go right in. There is a sandbar about thirty feet out, so it's great for kids. One of the best things is the lush lawn (with no grass clippings) between the cottage and the beach, so you are able to get all the sand off your feet before you get to the house. There is also a sturdy swing set and picnic table in the yard.
The owners are right next door. They are available if needed for advice or troubleshooting, but not at all intrusive.
This is not a lavish cottage (take a walk north on the beach and you'll know what I mean), but it is a wonderful fit for a couple or small family who want to experience a beach vacation with all the conveniences of home (yes, there is cell reception and internet).
