The Lake House Oasis feels like a true slice of heaven.  Nestled between the trees, facing Lake Michigan  lies a newly built (2017) lake house.  Not to be easily seen from the road,  you are greeted with a wide, gravel/dirt driveway.  Walking up the short stairway to the beautiful carved glass entrance of the lake house, you'll open the door to a captivating entryway with marble floors.   The kitchen (well water) is just to the left, filled with all your basic necessities. Brand new (2017) appliances: refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, coffee maker and even a precision induction cook top  Plates, cups, bowls, pots/pans and silverware are all fresh and ready to make your family vacation as easy and comfortable as possible.  The Lake House Oasis has plenty of counter-top space, while looking out at beautiful Lake Michigan. 

Meander into the dining room with the wooden table for 6  of the people dear to you to enjoy a meal together overlooking Lake Michigan. The gorgeous wood floors compliment the wooden table perfectly. So that the whole family can eat together, the counter doubles as an eating bar with the 4 bar stools facing the kitchen.  Keeping the chef company is always appreciated. 

Next to the dining room, you'll find the cozy high-top table with 4 chairs.  Perfect for your breakfast coffee or evening cocktail.  The wet bar in this nook between the dining and living rooms is a wonderful compliment to the space. There are various drinking glasses from margarita, martini and the classic wine glasses. 

Moving through the wet bar/ breakfast nook, you never stop overlooking Lake Michigan!   The living room has has a comfortable couch with a chase lounger on one side,  There is a none-working fireplace and TV with Dish Network, as well as a Blu-ray DVD player to enjoy your time relaxing, when you aren't at the peaceful Lake Michigan sandy beach.

The other bunk bed has 2 twin beds.  Both have direct entry to the walkway down to the beach. **This room is not advisable for curious young children sleeping alone.**

Reviews

Great place right on the beach
We loved our stay over Labor Day weekend. The home was far enough from town to be away but close enough to go in for groceries or a place to eat. Home was clean, had everything we needed and an awesome beach! Plenty of bathrooms for the 9 of us. The yard area was well kept and patio space and tables to eat outside. Loved the home!

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Brent, thanks for taking the time to write this great review.  Labor Day in the U.P. is pretty special.  The deck overlooking the water is perfect for morning coffee or a nap!  We hope to see you back again.

September 2019 Get Away
We stayed at the Lake Oasis with our friends and their furry baby and had a great experience. The house is conveniently located to shopping and major points of interest in the UP. We home's furnishings, large deck, and beach access. This was our first trip to the UP, and we will be back!! The only suggestions we have are: repair screens on deck doors; provide guide book to assist with operating TV and fireplace; evaluate smoke detectors. During the first night , the smoke alarm in the master bedroom went off repeatedly. We had to remove the battery to deactivate. We highly recommend this property for those who are looking for a relaxing get away but with all the conveniences of home!!!

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Chris, we are honored that your first trip to the UP was at Lake House Oasis, and being directly on Lake Michigan is the best!  This cottage was built in 2017 and it includes a washer and dryer.  And as you said, fur babies are welcome to stay with their humans.  We'll let the owners know your suggestions and get them taken care of.  We do hope to see you again.

Great house
This is a new clean beach house. Manistique is a sleepy town but we enjoyed beach walks and swims with dogs. It is not easy to find a nice dog friendly rental but this one was very close to perfect. It has everything you need except beach and dog towels which we always take with us anyway. This is a nice home for 1 or 2 families. The living room is on the smaller size but there is also a basement TV room perfect for kids. There was 1 real flaw with the house for our trip: sulfur smelling tap water. If that is resolved we would probably return. A few of the door screens need to be fixed as well as cleaning of other screens but there are many windows so we were able to open a few and get fresh air. If you stay here please take care of the house and only stay with well behaved dogs!! We hope that if we return it is as nice and clean as when we stayed!

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Linee, thanks for this review.  We are happy that you enjoyed Lake House Oasis.  Nothing matches being directly on Lake MIchigan with the amazing beaches, sunsets and sunrises.  A little bit of heaven.  3 kayaks are included for guests  to use.  We will work on the water issue and thanks for the heads up on the screens and screen doors. We hope to see you and your pup again.

Great Family Vacation
The house and lake access were great. We had everything we needed and the grocery store wasn’t far. We had a fun time enjoying the water and would recommend it for sure. The house was very clean and had a modern feel. We had six people and there was plenty of room.


FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Heather, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Lake House Oasis.  Nothing beats staying right on Lake Michigan, having access to 8 kayaks and allowing your dog to come with you on vacation!  Day trips will take you to Mackinac Bridge, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore or Tahquamenon Falls State Park.

Amazing Vacation
This is the first time renting a place for vacation, and getting pair up with another company. My in-laws arrived at the house first, and they were really impressed with the layout, and the scenery. Upon arrive myself, the view was amazing to see. For the whole week, my family and I had a great time. It was the first time, my daughter (age 2) was on Lake Michigan. Lots of first's for her. First time, she had a s'more. It was great. The customer service that was provided, from the check in call, to helping my wife with the cable, were great. I will definitely rent with you guys again, and skip the Homeaway site.

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Cory, thanks for this great review.  We love that your daughter had her 1st Lake Michigan experience at Lake House Oasis - there is nothing better!  This property is nestled between the trees and faces Lake Michigan. There are 3 kayaks for guests to use and it's pet friendly!  Perfection.  We appreciate your kind comments for FVR.  Our guests comfort is our #1 priority.

Amazing stay!
Cara was so helpful and nice! The property was beautiful and the location was perfect!

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Stephanie, it's good to hear that Lake House Oasis was the perfect location for you!  You cannot beat being right on Lake MIchigan.  Its proximity to  the Mackinac Bridge, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and Tahquamenon Falls State Park makes for exciting day trips.  We look forward to your return.

A home away from home
Such a beautiful home! Wonderfully updated, maintained and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Close enough to head to town, yet far enough away to feel a little remote...and the ability to look out over Lake Michigan is icing on the cake, no matter what time of year! Your home made our "time away" even that much better!


FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
John, we love getting reviews like yours!  Lake House Oasis is a fantastic property, and you are right that being on Lake Michigan is such a pleasure no matter the time of year.  We would like to continue being your "home away from home" for years to come, so do come back!

We loved the Lake House Oasis
We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Lake House Oasis in Manistique. The home had all the amenities we needed, including kayaks. We especially loved listening to the waves at night. We would definitely stay here again.


FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Debbie, we're so glad that you found Lake House Oasis to be as lovely as we find it.  The sound of the waves can be mesmerizing - the perfect affect for a vacation.  We'll look forward to seeing you again.
