LOCATION & PARKING - The physical address of the condo is: 6504 N. US Highway 23, #33, Oscoda, MI 48750. Park either right in front of the condo next to our deck, or across from the deck on the other side of our road; pulling onto the grass a little there is no problem.
CHECK-IN time is 3pm; CHECK-OUT time is 11am. Other times need to be discussed with us in advance.
SMOKING is NOT permitted in the condo. There’s an ashtray outside for your convenience.
ENTRY is via the keyless entry system on front door handle (not old lockbox). The code will be given to you a few days prior to your arrival. In case of lock-out, please contact us immediately.
AIR CONDITIONING - There is a wall air conditioning unit between the kitchen & living room, and it cools those areas very well. However, the air does not reach the bedrooms well. There are 4 fans, for positioning any way you need them. If the weather is very hot, we have learned that we are able to keep the condo quite comfortable by keeping all windows & doors closed, and the air & fans all running.
ACCESSIBILITY - There is one step up to get on our deck, to come in the front door. Otherwise, the condo is all on one level. The bathroom will allow a wheelchair to enter, but will not allow enough room for the door to close. You have to step over the side of the tub to enter the tub/shower. The back door off the kitchen has two shallow steps to enter.
