Cobb's Hideaway Cottage

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
East Tawas, Michigan
Our Hideaway cottage is on Tawas Lake, a great fishing lake. The living room has windows overlooking the lake. There is a deck on the lake side, and shade trees. Bluegills, bass, and pike are waiting for you to catch them! Downtown East Tawas is a mile away, with nice places to eat and shop. East Tawas is on Lake Huron, and has both a great sand beach, and the big State Dock where you can walk in the evening with an ice cream cone! If you're a fly fisherman, the Augres River (one of the best trout streams in North America) is about 10 miles north and runs west across the state. If you're a hunter, all of the Huron National Forrest begins on the other side of the lake, a few driving miles west. There is a lighthouse on Tawas Point you can visit, and many more sand beaches there for picnics, kite boarding, and swimming. The... Read more

This location was absolutely perfect for our stay in Tawas. The cabin is rustic but is homely and easily sleeps 5/6. The place is better in person than the pictures show, and exceeded my expectations. If you do stay here, I highly suggest making it...More

Second year at Cobb's Hideaway and another great vacation. The house (this ain't no cabin!) is clean, well maintained and comfortable. Fishing on the lake is great. Big surprise this year with a rocker recliner! Even with a couple days of rain, we still had...More

The cabin its self was great, relaxing, very clean, had everything we needed as far as cooking utensils and dishes. They provide you with 2 towels per room and wash clothes (we brought our own just in case we needed extra). The beds and pillows...More

About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is nestled among other weekend cottages and homes along the lake. People ride bicycles and relax, walking the streets. During the summer, you hear sounds of kids playing, and an outboard motor or two from the lake during the day. Families have been coming to our neighborhood since the 1930s, with generations of cottage owners spending their summers here. The neighborhood is friendly, the streets are safe for kids to ride their bikes, and the lake is full of fish to catch. This is a nice family environment.
Getting around
You should bring a car as taxi or Uber service is spotty. You can bring bicycles, and ride around the neighborhood, or to the East Tawas beaches. This is a safe environment for families and kids.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Saginaw - Bay City (MBS): 100.0 km
From either Flint or Saginaw, north on I-75 to the Standish exit. North on US 23 through Standish, toward East Tawas. When you arrive at East Tawas, left on Newman St at the stoplight toward Tawas Lake Rd. Right on Tawas Lake Rd, then left toward the lake.

Watch for the last driveway on the right, with a sign for 'Cobb's Hideaway 197'.

The house shares a large lot on the lake, so your GPS will tell you you've arrived when you reach the end of Tawas Lake Rd, at the lake. Our driveway goes behind the detached garage on your right, that's our right of way around to our cottage. If you get to the lake, back up, and turn in at the 'Cobb's Hideaway' sign.
