Tawas Lake Vacation Home For Rent

Contact Greg at 406-459-9125 or by email (greg@ecologyusa.com) for more info.

Woodsy, private and pet-friendly spacious modern home in a great location across a quiet neighborhood street from Tawas Lake.  Low rates. Easy lake access with rowboat provided. Only one mile from the Lake Huron beachfront park and quaint shops of East Tawas, the nicest tourist destination on the Sunrise Coast. Fully updated with all new furniture in 2013 and appliances in 2006 with a total inside and out renovation.  House is on multiple lots with huge oak trees and nice views of Tawas Lake and the surrounding woods (look for the deer!). See the rest of this site for guest comments, more information, and many photos of the interior and lovely surroundings. 


The house will sleep 8 and has a fireplace, AC, cable TV, DVD, stereo system, outside fire pit, and everything you need except food. The large family room is all windows with a nicely private view of the woods. The front room has Tawas Lake views and can sleep a ninth person. There are two bedrooms, one with two twin beds, the other with a newer full bed. Each of the two large family rooms has a sofa sleeper. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, cooking utensils, dishes, etc. There is a full bathroom with shower and tub, and a full-size new washer and dryer. Expect a clean, fully equipped house in a quiet cottage area with friendly neighbors.  Paved streets with little traffic are ideal for bicycling, walking, and skating.


Tawas Lake is a large all-sports lake with a mostly undeveloped shoreline. Enjoy great fishing, waterfowl viewing/hunting, or just adventuring out in my rowboat. The boat can be left on the beach right across the street from the house in a rarely used right-of-way. Larger boats can be launched and beached at the nearby public boat ramp. Wild rice still grows on some of Tawas Lake – this is definitely a special place compared to many overused northern lakes because of its beauty, natural character, and abundance of fish and wildlife. You or the kids can swim or wade across the street (it’s sandy and shallow at the shore but becomes a muck weedy bottom) or at a nearby city owned vacant waterfront lot, but the best swimming is only a mile away at the great East Tawas waterfront park. The park has an incredible long and wide sandy beach with a huge dock where you can take a long walk, fish, or just view all the docked yachts.


The main street of East Tawas ends at the waterfront park and is lined with antique stores, casual or fine dining establishments, a classic movie theatre, and a variety of other shops. The East Tawas/Tawas City area spanning Tawas Bay is the perfect size – small enough to be uncrowded and quaint but large enough to have lots of activities, large grocery stores, and a variety of shops and dining. Nearby Tawas Point State Park juts into Lake Huron with another super beach, historic lighthouse, and an extensive hiking area at the end of the point. Tawas Point is a nationally known bird watching area year-round, with even more to see during spring and fall migrations. The Huron National Forest, the famous Ausable River, Tuttle wildlife refuge, Lumberman’s Monument, and many lakes are all within a short drive from the house. Take a scenic 12 mile drive along Lake Huron to the small tourist town of Oscoda at the mouth of the Ausable River but stay in East Tawas where there’s a lot more to do. 


Every season offers new activities. In spring there is the burst of new flowers. The warming temperatures bring amazing flocks of waterfowl and other migrating birds. Make sure you visit Tawas Point State Park in the Spring. A northwoods summer is usually warm without being too hot, I only rent weekly during the peak summer season (unless I’m open at the last minute). Fall colors are outstanding. Fall also brings hunting season. There is ample public land for deer hunting nearby and Tawas Lake hosts incredible waterfowl flights. Spend a great Christmas – New Years holiday week in the North. I close after New Years and reopen in March.
