Overview

Gaylord House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 8-9

The Wild Winds is a nature lover’s paradise. We offer many trails for hiking and/or biking. Enjoy fishing, boating and relaxing on the lake and beach, just steps from your rustic cabin. Or spend time at our private lake nestled in the woods ("The Ponds") where we have installed a dock for deep water swimming and canoeing. Or for a little more excitement the Wild Winds is only 7-8 Miles from world class golfing, shopping, restaurants and other sporting lakes. If you like to take short day trips you could go to Petoskey to see beautiful Lake Michigan, or spend your day at Mackinac Island.

This log home, "Honeymoon Cabin," has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 people.

Or consider our other vacation rental at the Wild Winds: "Junior Cabin" has 3 bedrooms (plus fold-out queen) sleeps 10-12, and it has a fireplace! (see homeaway.com #368462ha).

The log homes are right on Wequas Lake, and our beautiful private lake is just a short walk into the woods.

Both homes come equipped with satellite TV, washer, dryer, full kitchen and 1 bath. The price is the same for either log home: the basic rate is $620/wk or $120/night, and prime dates are $745/wk or $145/night. In July and August we rent by the week (Saturday to Saturday) There is $60 cleaning fee, and well-behaved dogs are permitted for a small additional fee.

Wild winds paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here and we had a great up north experience! We had good communication with Rocco and the cabin was ready when we arrived. The location was amazing, deep in the forest yet close to the town of Gaylord. Rocco had pretty much everything you would need in the cabin including washer and dryer. We also brought our two dogs who had a good time walking the trails on the property. The ponds were awesome! We had a great time and would highly recommend wild winds.

Off the Grid

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this place very much. It is exactly as described. It is in the middle of no where, but less than 10 minutes away from major shopping and the west side of town. Wequas Lake is very nice and beautiful in the morning. The trails that surround the property are what we enjoyed the most. Pet friendly!!! There are other cabins as well that are available for rent, so if you have a larger party this property can accomodate. Highly recommend!!

A Fantastic and Unique Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Honeymoon Cabin, and the entire Wild Winds vacation area, is a wonderful way to take a step out of the every day stresses of life and into peaceful serenity. A small group of friends and I rented the cabin for 7 nights this past week, and we could not have possibly been more satisfied.

To start, the listing is completely accurate, aside from the fact that it does no justice for how beautiful this location is. And that really is it, location, location, location, this spot needs to be seen in person to truly understand how great it is.

Firstly, the cabin we stayed in, "The Honeymoon Cabin", was neat, clean, and surprisingly larger than we expected. This size was of course much to our delight, for the price of rent, there is really no going wrong with this cabin. The bathroom and kitchen was stocked with the necessary dishes and utensils, the bathroom was full of clean and folded towels, and the bedrooms were each neat and incredibly comfortable. All in all the cabin was cozy, and perfectly livable, no complaints from our end at all.

The next big part of the stay was the lake, which is right next to the cabins. A small stone stairway leads down to the beach and dock. Here you'll find multiple boats, chairs, and a fire pit. Lake Wequas itself is large and peaceful. There is no wake, and there was never more than 1-2 other boats on the water while we were out. The canoes are extremely fun, and for those who don't feel like rowing, there is a quality 3 seated paddle boat also docked on the shore. Swimming is great right off the beach, me and my group spent a fair amount of time wading in the water and playing frisbee. Sunsets over this lake are absolutely breathtaking. So if you're looking for site with a clean, swimmable, boatable, and beautiful lake, this is a great bet.

The suite of cabins is surrounded by acres of forested land, easily explored on the well kept hiking trails. The forest is speckled with different sorts of wildlife and is more peaceful and secluded than you can imagine. A short hike through the woods will lead you to what is, arguably, the most incredible location on the site, the ponds. Secluded, cool, and just awesome to look at, I personally have never been somewhere as special as the ponds. Swimming, boating, fishing, or just relaxing on the dock, any amount of time here, is time well spent.

Moral of the story, if you're looking for a cabin in northern Michigan, stop looking! I drove all the way from Chicago, its worth it.

Friends get together

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this cabin for the weekend so we all could have a vacation and spend some time together. Rokko was very nice to welcome us into his property and was very nice and had accommodated us well. We had a blast sitting out by the lake fishing and spending time on the paddle boat on the lake. We couldn't ask for a better weekend, time well spent together and we all very much enjoyed the cabin we stayed in.

Wild Winds Stay

  • 5 of 5

I just recently rented this cabin for 4 days. It was the best vacation we have been on in awhile. It was very relaxing and fun. We had friends and family join us and put up a few tents. We were able to bring our dog, which she absolutely loved being outside all the time. The fishing was great, the kids would cast out and had a fish with in seconds. We told ghost stories done by the fire on the beach at night, then played hide and seek in the woods after in the dark:) It was the best. We had brought up our quads and the trails were amazing. The whole stay was just great and we really look forward to staying again next summer. The only thing I didn't realize was that there were other cabins right near us, but no one was there during our stay, so it was private, just what we wanted!!

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a great time, and we look forward to your visit next summer! We rent out two vacation log homes at the Wild Winds: Honeymoon and Junior (homeaway.com #298533 and #368462). We have sixty acres of beautiful woods, beachfront on Wequas Lake, a private chain of ponds with a swimming area tucked in the woods, and we are adjacent to over a hundred acres of state forest filled with trails, so there is always room for everybody. It is a nature lover's paradise.
