Located at the end of a no-outlet street on Lake Huron, Cottage Cove by Hunger & Ransom Vacation Lodging is tucked away from traffic and noise. Enjoy the private beach or walk along the shore to the Oscoda boardwalk and public park with plenty of activities for the kids: a splash pad, playground, skate park, and even more sugar-sand beach.

Stay connected with reliable, high speed internet throughout the entire resort. And, when the weather's not cooperating, chill out inside with cable on the HDTV or games at the table.

Cottage Cove features 12 separate rentals, all with terrific views of Lake Huron. Ranging from affordable one bedrooms to a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home, there's an option for every budget and party size. Subject to availability, we also offer the option to rent the entire property for family reunions, weddings and corporate events.

Outdoor Space
Every cottage shares a large lawn with picnic tables, charcoal grills and yard games. You'll also have full access to our 200ft of sandy Lake Huron beach frontage. Comfortably wade out 100+ feet in waist-height water; the lake is amazingly clean and free of rocks and vegetation.

If there’s something we haven’t addressed, send us a message and we’ll get back with you asap (notifications go straight to our phones). If the dates you’re looking for are unavailable, we may be able to fit you into one of our other properties in the area.

We were there the week before Labor Day and LOVED it! I wanted a quite place where I could get my feet in the sand and just relax. The cabins were very clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We just happened on to the resort and were able to get the cabin for the time we needed. Great value for the money. We want to go back again and take the kids and grand kids! The beach was very clean and nice.

This is a fun place. My family, of 4 generations, have come her for decades. They have your typical old style cabins in a half circle looking out to lake Huron and a beautiful sandy beach. It's private without busy traffic and good for the little ones, yet walking distance to McDonald's and the public beach for the teens and Thursday night concert goers. Last night all 35 of us had dinner on the many picnic tables, saw a rainbow and finished it off with a bon fire on the beach. Pure Michigan.

Location Features

Walkable Location

About the Area

The property is located on a short, no-outlet street on Lake Huron. As close as we are the water, it’s less than a mile walk to the downtown area where you can grab dinner, get drinks, cool off with some ice cream and even watch a movie at the local theater.

River Road—a national scenic bypass—runs into downtown Oscoda and has numerous activities along it’s 19 mile length: including, the AuSable River Queen Boat Cruise (gorgeous during Autumn leaves season), canoeing/tubing launches and Lumberman’s Monument Park.

Tawas is a short 20 minute drive from the resort and boasts additional restaurants, activities, and shopping. Like Oscoda, you'll have your pick of weekend events every week during the summer.

With the Huron National Forest on Oscoda’s border, there are hundreds of outdoor activities within close range. Whether you’ve been coming to the area for a lifetime or this is your first trip, there’s always something new and exciting to do.

House Rules & Policies

Pets Allowed · Self-Checkin · No Smoking

We want you to have an awesome experience at our Hunger & Ransom rental and hope you enjoy your whole vacation. Our biggest philosophy is leave it as you found. I.e., clean up after yourself and treat the property as if it were your own. We think this is a place you’ll want to stay again after you experience it the first time.

Cleaning Policy

During your stay, you are expected to maintain the cleanliness and order of the property. This includes but is not limited to the following: keeping floors clean and dry, maintaining the cleanliness of kitchen and bathroom fixtures, appliances, and utensils, and practicing general cleanliness so as not to cause permanent damage to the property.

If it is determined by inspection of the Owner upon the termination of your stay that an excessive amount of cleaning is required, you will be responsible for paying an additional, non-refundable $100 cleaning fee.

Pet Policy

Some pets are welcome to accompany you during your stay at this cottage: acceptable pets and rules are outlined below.

  • Do not bring pets that are known to damage furniture, are not housebroken, have shown aggression toward people/other pets, or are excessively loud.
  • You are responsible for any and all damage or financial loss caused as a result of your pet staying at the property. This includes replacement cost (money for time spent, product expense, and taxes) of damaged property, imposed fines, medical expenses, and any other financial burden that may be imposed.
  • When traveling with pets, an additional fee is required.
  • When outdoors with your pet, they must remain on a 6ft or shorter leash at all time. Do not use retractable leashes or let your pet roam freely.
  • You must pick up after your pet, after every bathroom break.

Acceptable Pets: non-aggressive and house-trained dogs. Cats and other pets are not allowed.

Cancellation Policy

The cancellation and refund policy applicable to your trip will vary based on the rate you choose at the time of booking. Below, are our two most common cancellation polices. If you have an existing reservation, refer to your trip details page for the applicable policy.

Flexible Cancellation

Your reservation is subject to the cancelation terms below.

  • Reservations cancelled at least 7 days before arrival will receive a 100% refund.
  • Reservations cancelled less than 7 days before arrival are not eligible for refund.

Additionally, partial stays and early termination are not subject to pro-rated refunds.

  • Reservations cancelled within 24 hours of booking and more than 24 hours before arrival will receive a 95% refund.
  • Reservations cancelled more than 24 hours after booking or less than 24 hours before arrival are not eligible for refund.

What to Expect

Each of our vacation rental properties possesses distinctive traits, and we consider it essential for you to be aware of these prior to your visit. Our goal is to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for every guest, and understanding these differences from your home can contribute to that. To assist in making your booking decision more informed, we present some key points for your consideration.

Special Considerations

  • Shared Spaces: These cottages are part of a shared property. Consequently, the outdoor space and beach are shared with other guests. We anticipate everyone to respect others' enjoyment. Rest assured, the interior of your cottage remains completely private and personal throughout your stay.
  • Dog-Friendly: Cottage Cove welcomes dogs. Even if you're not traveling with a pet, expect to see dogs in shared areas. Bear this in mind when booking, especially if you have allergies or plan to bring your dog. Dogs must be on 6ft leashes whenever outside the rental (including the beach), and owners must clean up after their pets immediately.
  • Cleanliness: We prioritize offering a clean environment for your vacation. Every linen, appliance, surface, and fixture is thoroughly cleaned between stays. However, there are some points to note:
    • We are pet-friendly, so a few stray hairs may evade our cleaning. We apologize for any inconvenience and assure you that all bedding is freshly cleaned.
    • Our spacious, circular driveway is a great playground for kids and provides a smooth walking surface. However, it can lead to oil being tracked into the cottage from the asphalt, especially when guests walk barefoot from the beach. Despite our diligent cleaning efforts, the asphalt can sometimes leave oil marks on the cottage floors and bathtubs.
    • With the beach comes sand, which we endeavor to remove completely. However, if we miss a few grains, rest assured they've been mopped, sprayed, or wiped clean.
    • Some appliances might not appear spotless due to exterior rust or old paint jobs. We replace appliances as time and resources permit, and ensure they are cleaned between stays.
    • Please note, these points are not meant to excuse substandard cleaning. If you ever feel our cleaning is insufficient, let us know immediately, and we'll rectify the situation.
  • Hot Water: Some cottages have smaller water heaters than you may be accustomed to at home. Prolonged or extremely hot showers might be challenging, especially in cold weather. Spacing out showers, dishwashing, and other hot water use usually solves the issue. If this poses a concern, consider booking one of our larger cottages with more substantial water heaters.
  • Coastal Living Challenges: Our vacation rental homes are located on Lake Huron's shore, close to the Huron National Forest. Given our location and the age of our properties, please be aware of the following:
    • Ants and other insects may find their way into the cottage, despite regular pest control efforts. You can help by maintaining food cleanliness and immediate cleanup.
    • Rarely, mice may get past our precautions, especially during cooler weather. It's unlikely but worth considering when deciding to book.
    • The location's humidity and higher water table might introduce unfamiliar smells. We assure you, however, that these scents don't indicate mold, and your health is our priority. Every rental is regularly inspected.
  • Accessibility: Our cottages are not handicap-accessible. Most doorways are narrow, and some spaces may present obstacles for those with mobility issues. Please review all photos to assess suitability before booking.
  • Provided Items: To simplify your packing, we supply essentials for your trip, but with certain limitations to stay competitive:
    • Sanitary Items: Expect roughly 1 roll of paper towel, 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, and 2 trash bags.
    • Linens/Bedding: We provide each guest with 1 towel and 1 washcloth, based on the cottage's occupancy limit. Each bed is fitted with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, pillows with cases, and a light quilt. In the bathrooms, you'll find 1 floor towel and 1 hand towel. The kitchen is equipped with 1 dishcloth and 1 dish towel. Please note that we do not offer towel exchange services, nor do we provide extra linens beyond what is mentioned here.
    • Kitchenware: We provide dinnerware to accommodate the maximum number of guests, plus basic cookware. e.g. at least 1 saucepan, 1 frypan and simple cooking utensils.

As frequent travelers, we value honesty and transparency about our properties to ensure you're well-prepared and can fully enjoy your vacation. If you need more information or have questions before booking, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to assist you.

Amenities & Photos Disclaimer

We do our best to accurately reflect our properties and included amenities through photos and text. We also regularly make improvements to our properties. While we strive to update our website quickly after changes are made, property photos and descriptions provided through our website may not be current, nor do we guarantee that our descriptions and photos are error-free. Additionally, the listed amenities and visual depictions of our properties at the time of booking may change prior to your arrival, without notice. Common changes may include new decor, furniture, appliances, fixtures and landscaping. Core details that will not change include: location, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, size of beds and the inclusion of major appliances as noted within property descriptions. Should any core details detrimentally change after booking and before arrival, you will be notified and granted exception to the current cancellation policy. No other changes provide exception to the cancellation policy in effect at the time of booking.
