Handicap Friendly: Let us explain what we mean by handicap friendly…there is a zero-1 step entry into this home, and it is one level (a ranch-style home). The bathrooms and hallways are not up to official handicap standards and do not come equipped with special apparatus to help those in need.

Hot tub: A 6-person hot tub was added this spring!

Internet:  Yes...StarLink added in 2023!

Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Outdoor Shower: To wash off a fun day in the sand there is an outdoor shower for you to rinse off. 

Parking: PLEASE BE CAREFUL when it comes to turning around. It is easy to get your car/truck/trailer stuck in the sand.  Tows are not easy in the U.P. Up to 5 cars can park comfortably or a 2 truck/trailer combo. EV car Charger on site

Pets: Dogs are welcome (up to 3)! Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $75/per pet for your entire stay. Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on.  Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

Privacy: It is a very private space.

Seniors:Come one, come all! This space is great for those over 60. Sometimes when renting a home, you are never too sure about the terrain: is the home on top of a hill, is parking on a steep slope, are there 100 steps to the beach or the unit, etc. This home gets the FVR approval for the young at heart!

Snowmobiles:  a person (resident and nonresident) that operates a snowmobile in Michigan is required to purchase a snowmobile trail permit. The trail permit enables snowmobilers to ride state-designated trails and thousands more miles of public roads and on public lands (where authorized). It is valid for one year, which begins Oct. 1 and ends Sept. 30 of the following year. State-designated trails are open Dec. 1-March 31 and grooming occurs when there is enough snow on the ground. Click here to purchase your snowmobile trail permit.

Relaxing and secluded
We loved our stay at Shoreline Oasis. The beach was fantastic. The home had enough space for 4 adults and 2 dogs. The screen porch was a favorite. Communication with Freshwater Vacation Rentals was easy with prompt responses.


Thank you for sharing your review Karri! It's great to know that your group (dogs included) had a great stay, and found communication with our team to be a pain-free experience! Hopefully we can have you back for a future stay!

Idyllic Location
Awesome beachfront property. Great for relaxing in sun and sand. We needed a place we could bring the dog. Felt remote. 


Hi Gay! Thank you for taking the time to review your stay! We are glad to know you had a chance to enjoy the private beach feel the home offers, along with your dog! Hopefully we can host you again!

Such a beautiful place! Very much what we needed to regroup and reconnect. We saw lots of wildlife right outside the window. A porcupine wandered by. We seen an eagle many times. Everyday a mama and daddy goose walked by with their 7 babies. We also enjoyed all the state parks. Fayette Historic State Park was a great place for kids and adults alike. Kitch-iti-kipi was pretty as well. A great time had by all! ------------------------------------------------------------- The home provided all the things we needed. It was comfy, we turned on 2 fans upstairs one night. The beach and chairs were relaxing. The bald ealge was sooooo cool!

Thank you so much for allowing pets!
Thank you all so very much for allowing pets at this Wonderful beach retreat! It was the first time our ENTIRE family could vacation together :) It was the most perfect, relaxing vacation and we cannot wait to come back! The cottage is so cozy and the views are spectacular! As a teacher- I really could live here all summer! We thought maybe the previous guests were mistaken, but we saw the porcupine too! We stayed for 5 nights and even want to leave the property! Again, thank you so much for sharing this place!

This was our first vacation in about 13 years and it was wonderful. The way the beach changes everyday, the porcupine, the bald eagle, the breeze, and the accommodations were all delightful. I drew a picture of the property and will email it to you all. Thank you! ------------------------------------- It was great. We saw a bald eagle and a porcupine. We did the Pictured Rocks in Munising cruise and it was wonderful. We came all the way from Grand Rapids -Kingsley

We enjoyed every minute, and the dogs loved it just as much!
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived! We enjoyed the beach house. Joe and I never wanted to leave because it was so peaceful here. If you are sitting outside or in the house, there was always a beautiful view. We will return next year! Our dogs loved it as much as we did. We enjoyed every minute. We LOVE this place. It's our paradise!

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend specifically to get away from it all. Many beach walks with the dogs as well. It was very enjoyable

We didn't think a place like this existed!
What a breathtaking view everywhere you look! Peaceful, revitalizing, comforting, fun family time. We enjoyed the kayaks and a few of our own inflatables we brought from home. Walks on the beach, reading, volleyball, football catch, frisbee, and listening to the waves were our other activities. There was no need to turn on the TV! I will admit there was a little phone time though :) Didn't think a place like this existed; reminds me how beautiful God's creation is. Hope this will be a new family tradition!

Would recommend for those needing to away from everyday life
This house was just the perfect spot for our honeymoon! The view was absolutely breathtaking, my husband and I found ourselves looking out over the lake as the sun set each night! We ran into a few neighbors and they were so kind and friendly to us. The peace from outside life was a blessing. We will recommend this house to family and friends if they ever need to get away from everyday life! Thank you again for giving us this opportunity to experience such a fantastic vacation spot!

We loved every second of our stay
Our family is originally from downriver Detroit. I live in Wabash Indiana, my brother and his family live in Fort Drum NY, my sister and her family live in Melvindale MI. We came up here to spread our mother's ashes in the UP. Our stay was amazing. We loved every second of it. Our family will definitely be back next year.

Totally worth it
Such an amazing secluded cottage yet still close enough to local attractions. We could not have asked for a better cottage for my family. Right on the water clean rustic secluded.


Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, Hollyn! We are so happy to know you and your family had a great stay, and found the cottages location and amenities able to provide everything you could have needed! Hopefully we will have a chance to host another stay with you!

Shoreline Oasis
This was a great location on the beach. My only suggestion is to provide the directions with approximate miles.


Hi Tami, thank you for letting us know that our directions may need to be updated. We love knowing that you enjoyed your time at the cottage, and getting to take in the feel of having your own beach on Lake Michigan! Hopefully we can have you back!

Beautiful and Peaceful Location
We enjoyed our stay at Shoreline Oasis. It was amazing to be able to walk out the front door and be on the beach of Lake Michigan. The location was beautiful, peaceful, and perfect. Enjoyed sitting on the many outdoor chairs and on the screened-in porch listening to the waves. Great amenities were an added bonus. Everyone used the kayaks, outdoor shower, and fire pit.


Thank you Jennifer, for reviewing your stay at Shoreline. The home truly has a setting that is not quite like anything else when it comes to having a peaceful getaway. We are delighted to know everyone enjoyed their stay, and made good use of the provided amenities. We look forward to having the chance to host you again!

Darn near perfect
My wife, myself and our two very active dogs had a great time. The lake front cabin is comfortable, clean and welcoming. It’s location is ideal…one step off the deck lands you on the beach. Though the water was too cold for the two of us, our dogs couldn’t stay out of it. We loved our stay and plan on returning next year

Joe, don't you just love taking your pups on vacation with you and knowing that they had a  blast!  We're glad that you had a good time and that you plan on coming back in 2023.

Splendid Isolation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful. The seating, indoors and out, was fabulous. And we simply can't say enough good things about the Freswatef team. They are responsive and the epitome of professionalism. This was the seventh consecutive year we have worked through them to find a place to stay in the UP for vacation. Every time has been a wonderful experience. They are a top flight operation in every sense. We look forward to working with them again soon. I highly recommend them.

Paul and Terry, you made our day!  Thank you for the kind words for thy staff of FVR, ad  for your recommendation.  Our guest relations are so very important to us.  The fact that you have rented from us for seven consecutive years says a lot!  We look forward to your next stay.

So beautiful!!!
Thank you so much for making our honeymoon so wonderful!!!! Couldn't believe the little extras that were displayed for us in order for us to celebrate. The home was absolutely gorgeous, it was hard to leave. We will stay again!

Christina, we are so happy to have been a part of making your honeymoon so wonderful!  When guests say it was hard to leave the property, we know we've done something right.  We hope you come back to celebrate your 1st anniversary if not before.

Great Family Get-away Spot!
Looking for a place to get away from it all and spend time with family reconnecting? This is the place! Enjoyed the seclusion, being steps from the shoreline and all the amenities of home.

Jill, thanks for this great review!  It's a perfect description of Shoreline Oasis, and we hope to see you back again.
Oct 2021
Definitely a beach front home!!
It was a great location. The house was amazing. Wish we would of booked a longer stay!! Only 1 true bedroom was the only downfall.

Cathy, you'll simply have to come back again and stay longer!   We love knowing that you enjoyed your stay.
