Exploring outside the area, you're only a short drive from Tawas and adventure in the Huron National Forest.

Stay connected with reliable, high speed internet throughout the entire property. When the weather's not cooperating, chill out inside with a movie on the smart HDTV or games at the table.
The home is equipped and intended to sleep four people comfortably. Your rental includes bedding, towels, toilet paper, soap (dish and hand), basic kitchen cookware, a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator and range.

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.

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.

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.
- Shared Spaces: This cottage is 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: This cottage has a smaller water heater 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.
