We are John and Cheryl Rohrkemper. We have been married for 40 years and have two children, Nicole and Michael. We have been enjoying our home for 14 years, even before we owned it! We hope you enjoy your stay at our home as much as we always have. We have had some pretty large family/friend gatherings that have been very enjoyable and worth the investment!

Cheryl Rohrkemper purchased this cottage in 2004

It's centrally located and well built. It is on 3 lots with a fabulous view of the lake from the balcony. We wanted a home our whole family could enjoy.

Quiet privacy.

Golfing nearby!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 2, 2009
  • Stayed: Jul 2009
Our week on this private lake was just wonderful. We were looking for a week of complete downtime, but this location is great for day trips to Macinaw, Traverse City, Petosky, etc. The cottage is very clean and roomy. We only had the four of us, but could easily have accomodated 10. The owner was prompt in answering any questions and following up on our stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage - would even consider renting again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate good family renters like the Sunbathers! Thank you for staying with us. Anyone can post pictures on facebook. If you have some I would love to see them.

Golf Trip Getaway

  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Our stay at the home was excellent and the amenities were exactly as stated online and then some. The owner was great to work with and very helpful in providing tips on local attractions and restaurants, as well as directions for accessing the home and facilities. The house was very clean and well-maintained and the view of the lakefront was incredible from the deck on the back of the house. We would recommend this house to anyone for a nice relaxing getaway, family vacation, or golf trip as there are plenty of courses nearby.
Owner's Response: We are looking forward to seeing you back for a few more rounds of great golf and a relaxing vacation!

Awesome Lakefront Property

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This is an awesome lakefront property located on a small private lake with minimal traffic and congestion on the water. There was plenty of room for 10 people - we had 7 adults and 3 children in our party. Downstairs area offers a separate living space for people tp spread out in. Traverse City and Petoskey are about an hour drive away for day trips and there are plently of golf courses in the surrounding area. Plenty of activities and restauarants in downown Gaylord as well. The house is very well-maintained and clean and there is no need to bring a lot of clothing since there is a state-of-the-art washing machine and dryer available for use in the home. I would highly recommend this property to a large family or several small groups. We had a great time!
Owner's Response: We are working on a great family and friends experience. Glad you enjoyed! Thank you for sharing your experience.
