Pets Welcome











*LAKE/WATERFRONT-on Van Etten Lake in Oscoda, MI 
*Please be aware that you are required to sign an additional waiver to use the pool area. This includes all Guests regardless of the booking platform. 


Aaahh....Encapsulated by the four (4) seasons we experience in our Pure Michigan lies your Endless Summer opportunity with the privacy of an indoor pool and hot tub, all while overlooking Van Etten Lake.  Yes, even your furry family member (dog) is welcome to tag along as you spend your time together having fun throughout the year and rejuvenating.  Spacious and comfortable for up to seven (7) of your family and friends; There is even air conditioning to capture another level of ease with your time together.  Here the kitchen blends into the living room, and you never need to lose sight of Van Etten Lake as you traverse between the rooms. Surprisingly, there is both a sunroom and screened-in porch at Endless Summer.  The sunroom provides an ideal way for you to remain at a comfortable temperature, while at the same time, feel a closer connection to gaze at Van Etten Lake. The screened in porch area is ideal for capturing the summer breeze, without the fuss of mosquitos.

There is even a separate work space (yes, with Wifi) if you must tap back into the office for a bit.  Then, when you turn in for the evening, crawling into a King bed with an attached bath, plus a balcony overlooking the lake, allows you to take that needed time to give yourself ample privacy and space with your special someone.

We do require all of your guests will need to sign a waiver to use the pool prior to arrival.  Since this a 100% private pool, for just this home, please keep in the forefront of your mind that there is NO lifeguard on duty. Only you and your (6) chosen family/friends are welcome.  There are both changing rooms and a bathroom on the pool level.

Wonderful stay. The home was clean, stocked with everything we needed, beautiful view, and easy to communicate with and get ahold of the rental company. Not much to do in the town, but we were happy to spend our time in the house and on the provided kayaks.


Hi Katie! We're delighted to know you enjoyed your stay, and found the home to be clean and well stocked! We also appreciate the wonderful compliment to the team, in regards to the communication you experienced with us! Although you didn't find much to do in the area itself, we hope to get a chance to host you again in the future!

Endless Summer vacation home
Beautiful house and beautiful location. The indoor pool was a huge hit with the whole family. The house was very clean and very well equipped with everything you need. I would have given 5 stars but the windows looking out to the lake were very dirty. The view would be much nicer without all the dirt and spiderwebs in the way. I know the windows are high off the ground but a power washer should be able to get them clean. But even with that I would still recommend this as a great place to stay for vacation. And a huge thank you to Freshwater Vacation Rentals for being so easy to work with.

Cheryl, we're glad that you enjoyed your getaway, and we appreciate your feedback and recommendation.  Thank you for your kind words for FVR.  It means a lot to us.   We hope that you come back again.

Amazing Getaway!
We had such an incredible time at this Airbnb. Have been to several throughout the years and this one takes the cake. It has all the amenities you could dream of. A perfect spot to take the kids/friends/family and completely unplug. Tons of sleeping room, paddle board, kayaks, fire pit, grill and the INDOOR POOL AREA. It was clean, is in a great area, and has a stunning view. Perfect for any time of the year. Can’t wait to go back and make more memories!


Thank you for sharing such a phenomenal review, Ashley! We are truly grateful to know you not only found the home to be clean and well equipped with all the amenities you could need, but also knowing that it ranks at the top for you regarding past stays you've experienced! We look forward to hosting you again in the future!
