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 pond (actually a small lake) nestled in the woods, 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 summer we are renting Honeymoon Cabin (Saturday to Saturday), which has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8-9 people. It overlooks quiet Wequas Lake and includes 1 bath, washer and dryer, full kitchen and satellite television.

In June, the basic rate is $600/wk. In July and August the basic rate is $725/wk, and for these two months we rent from Saturday to Saturday. There is a $60 cleaning fee, and well-behaved dogs are permitted ($50 for one, $75 for two).

We are also renting 'Junior' Cabin this summer (Homeaway #368264)

Wild Winds Stay

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.

Lovely Summer Getaway

This was our first time visiting Michigan and we chose to stay in a cabin so that we could get that feeling of camping with comfort and Wild Winds Honeymoon Cottage filled the bill. With access to all the amenities of this property i.e.canoes, rowboats, paddle boats, hiking trails, barbecues, fire pit, a private beach, a real swimming hole and the worlds best drinking water there is not much not to rave about! We spent a lovely week enjoying it all. You can't beat the location with easy access to all surrounding tourist areas. The cabin is supplied with everything you need for a great getaway and it is dog friendly! We look forward to our next stay at Wild Winds. Thanks Rokko! Cindy&Rob Chicago

The Wild Winds is a beautiful place to stay that is peaceful and quiet. It is centrally located in northern Michigan, so many sight seeing destinations are accessible at reasonable distances.

The property is remote enough to feel like you've escaped the fast-paced world around you, but still close to Gaylord so that you have access to all sorts of stores, restaurants and anything else you may need.

The cabin was comfortable and accommodating. Our kids had a great time enjoying the lake and exploring the wooded areas. We wished that we had more time to spend there.

We will definitely keep this place in mind for future visits! Rokko was a great host and we thank him for sharing his corner of paradise.

A perfect rustic getaway

This cabin was an awesome find. We were looking for an "out of the way" but not too out of the way place to vacation. This property hits each note precisely. You have the feeling of the rustic cabin in an incredible pine forest. We didn't have cell service on the property for one second (which is exactly what we were looking for). Yet with this property essentially being at the intersection of I-75 and M-32 you have access to all of the great northern Michigan adventures as easy to reach day trips. It also is just a quick drive in to Gaylord which has everything you could want as far as groceries and supplies.

The cabin is well set up. Plenty of space to move around in and very comfortable. It is stocked with every plate, glass, small appliance, and utensil you might need. And the beds are very comfortable. All of this wrapped in an incredible 60 acre forested property you can explore. Living in the suburbs you almost forget what real quiet actually sounds like. This place will give you a quick reminder. Wonderful trails, a couple of lakes to canoe in, and the canoes available to do it. Lot's of small animals and birds. And this was definitely a dog paradise. Our dog, along with us, loved every moment's adventure.

If you are looking for a a great getaway adventure to a place that will really give you the opportunity to unwind and explore the variety that is northern Michigan, this is it. We would definitely return here.

Owner's Response: We enjoy sharing the beauty and serenity of The Wild Winds with folks who are looking for a rustic yet comfortable retreat amidst the wonders of nature. And well-behaved dogs are always welcome, too! By the way, some cell phone service (e.g. AT&T) works just fine up here, but most people don't mind a few days away from civilization (and Gaylord, with its shops, restaurants and golf courses, is only a few miles away.)

A very serene getaway!

The cabin was very attractive for our family. This was our second stay and we enjoyed it even more than the first! The cabin is breathtaking and very spacious. The beds are very comfortable which was very important to our family and there is plenty of drawer and closet space. It has all the amenities you could need, washer and dryer, toaster, microwave, it even has things such as a pizza cutter and wine glasses!
The cabin is surrounded by beautiful pine trees, a few large ponds and gorgeous lake views. By the lake and ponds there are docks, several small paddle boats and canoes. It is very private and peaceful! We had bonfires every night and didn't have to buy any wood, it was all provided for us by Rokko.
The wildlife is astonishing! We caught fish, frogs, a turtle and a snake. There are beavers at the ponds and we did sight an eagle in the woods along with chipmunks.
If you love and respect nature, this is the place for you!
