Welcome to upscale and affordable on the shores of all-sports Van Etten Lake. This classic Michigan vacation rental is named after the classical Greek philosopher. When it comes to making classic vacation memories, Socrates Place is the place to relax, laugh, and ponder. Grab an Adirondack chair and watch the dazzling sunsets over the lake.
Inside is a fully furnished rental with many surprises that give you an upscale experience: a Cullican reverse osmosis water purification system, omelet maker, waffle maker and bread maker. Just because there is a fully-stocked kitchen doesn’t mean you always have to cook: Put on your explorers hat & dancing shoes and watch free concerts in downtown Oscoda; try the local restaurants. Kids (of all ages) really enjoy the ice cream parlors.
Sleeping arrangement: Two bedrooms with new queen beds, new linens, and new Berber carpet. Living room has a queen size pull out bed.
Tie your boat up to a private dock, where you’ll notice the clear waters and sandy bottom Van Etten Lake. Our unique location has you near Lumberman's Monument, the scenic Au Sable River, and the shores of Lake Huron! Ask us about water toy rentals so you can get on the water.
Since you book directly with us here at Perfect Landing, we can help you plan your Van Etten Lake and Oscoda getaway. The friendly owner occupies the front home - you might get a pontoon ride. They have their own entrance and lake access.
Van Etten Lake is a year round, all-sports lake. Socrates Place is a year round vacation rental. What a combination! From the lake cottage you can go fishing, boating, waterskiing, canoeing & kayaking, jet skiing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling. A big part of cabin time here is the rewarding fish fry. Fish on! Walleye, northern pike, bass, perch or a variety of pan fish. It wouldn’t be a Michigan vacation without roasting marshmallows, s'mores or hot dogs -even the fire pit area is upscale! Lake levels may be higher or lower than photographed.
Vacation like a local in Oscoda County: Go birding, or relax and splash in Lake Huron - along 1,000 feet of Oscoda Beach Park. There are 20-miles of pristine, sand beaches. Find trials! Fat tire trails for hiding and cross country skiing. Ask us about canoeing, kayaking, or floating the AuSable River. Bring your golf clubs too - Scottish style links by the water is incredible.
