Reviewed 27 July 2018

We stayed with our 2 boys (5,7). Before arrival we let Gold Coast know we were celebrating our son's birthday and they went above and beyond by having a gift for them when we arrived. So thoughtful and the personal touch is not something you these days:)
We rented a cabin that faced the parking lot (the lake views were booked). The cabins are small but sufficiently sized and well cared for. All of the furniture is newer and in great condition. Some things have been updated inside the cabins (furniture, light fixtures) and some things still could use spucing (the stoves, tub, bedspreads). Our cabin was pretty clean (I am very picky). The beds were actually VERY comfy! The beach was never busy while we were there and thankfully we had kind, quiet neighbors during our stay. The deck is great to sit on and enjoy the view and the beach is nice and clean, not rocky!
Some things that would be nice if improved:
1. Bedspreads..the sheets were nice quality but the coverlet and other blankets could use updated. Our blue soft blankets on the beds we did not use because they were covered in hair (not ours). I think they were clean but hair just sticks to and gets trapped in those types of blankets. We brought our own bedding anyway so it wasnt a big issue.
2. Storage: It would be super helpful to guests if some hooks were added in the bathroom and near the cabin door to hang towels, swim suits ect. The bathroom really doesnt have any storage so any extra hooks would be helpful.
3. It would be really nice to have some more "homey" touches. Not necessities but would be nice to have more rugs in the bedrooms, hand towels in the kitchen, ect. again not necessities but would have been nice to make the cabin feel warmer.

In hindsight I wish we wouldve booked a lakeview. For a whole week when our kids go to bed by 8pm we just stared at the TV because we couldnt leave them alone in the cabin. Staring at the lake wouldve been nice:)
Overall this is a great little place to stay with a family. Customer service is excellent and the cabins/ cottages are well cared for. Compared to what else is available to rent in the area this place is very clean and nicely updated.

Room Tip: Go for the Lakeview!

Thank you so much for the review! We really enjoyed having your beautiful family!

We love the furniture too! But, the beach is the highlight of almost every vacation! It is always gorgeous, and with a smaller property, never has more than a handful of people! You really can't beat the sugar-sand beaches of Lake Huron.

After reading your review, we have gone ahead and updated all the queen bedrooms! Now, with fresh white duvets, the beds are beautifully updated! We are currently looking at some more storage, specifically in the entryway. We are on track for an update in the near future! For now, we have the string to hang your bathing suits outside, as well as a shower curtain rod with an extra bar for hanging your towel. We agree though, it would be helpful to have an extra place! We also purchased brand new white bath towels, washcloths, and hand towels - so expect to see a towel in the kitchen!

As always, we love to hear from our guests, and we really appreciate the kind and thoughtful review! The greatest compliment you can give us is to say that we are family oriented, and, to hear it from such a wonderful family means even more! We were overjoyed to have you join the Gold Coast Family, and we hope to see you again soon!

Gold Coast was perfect for our family of 7 adults and 3 young kids. We had 2 cabins and they were clean and well furnished. Evan came by frequently to ask if we needed anything and was quick to help as needed. The beach and large deck are perfect! We all loved it and will be back next summer. Thanks Evan!

Nancy332,

Wow! Thank you so much for the great feedback! We work very hard to achieve high standards of cleanliness and customer service! These reasons are part of why we were named The Best Hotel of Oscoda in both 2016 and 2017 and were inducted into the Oscoda Business Hall of Fame. Our sugar sand beach is groomed frequently to keep clean; we are happy to hear that all our efforts are worthwhile! The large lakeside deck is not only a great place to find the shade or the sun during the day but also has overhead lighting to make a calming night by the lake possible. This is a fairly new addition and we really appreciate the comments. It's guests like you that help us know what we can do to make your vacation even better. It is important to us that we make Gold Coast a place we would be proud to have our own family stay in. Because of this, we are overjoyed to hear that you find it to be a family oriented property! We can't wait to have such a great addition to the Gold Coast Family back next summer!

See you soon!
