LAKEFRONT OTSEGO LAKE - LEANING BIRCH LODGE

Gaylord Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our family cottage is a single level ranch style layout with (2) bedrooms. The master is lakefront where you can hear the waves lapping the shore. The second bedroom is kid friendly with a rustic log bunk bed. A futon in the family room offers additional accommodations for 2 more guests. One full bath with tub/shower is available. The living room has a cathedral ceiling and knotty pine walls. The family room also displays local area taxidermy including an owl, a pheasant, a bear and a Lynxx that complete the cool "Up North" feeling. A gas stove heater warms on chilly nights, while a 32" flat screen with cable and premium movie channels, DVD/VHS combo player stands ready to entertain. Cute gaming table and a mixture of cards and board games are available for family bonding. Wireless high speed internet service is furnished to please those needing connection to the city life. A modern well equipped kitchen and dining room table helps make meals and entertaining a breeze. Laundry room offers a washer and dryer on site. Outside towards the lake you will find a wood deck with a new gas grill, and a built in fire pit for late night camp fires. The deck overlooks an awesome beach, dock and swimming area. The 113 foot sandy, rock-free swim area tapers gently from shore to the deeper water. Our private dock extends out 64' over the water. There is room for docking a boat (up to ~21') or other water toys. This side of the lake usually receives a breeze, so few bugs are ever present. Enjoy bonfires as the sunsets and the breeze come through the signature birch tree at Leaning Birch Lodge.

Absolutely Perfect.

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had as a family for a father's day/birthday combo. Perfect sunset, my daughter adored the bunk bed room. This cottage literally had everything you need to be able to relax and enjoy some time away. We will definitely be staying again but next time for a longer amount of time. 4 days wasn't enough for this adorable getaway. 5 stars for sure.

Thank you for letting us enjoy your place. Scott and Jodi

Fall Colors

Thanks for renting us your little lake cottage.We had a wonderful week. The colors from across the lake
were awesome, as were the sunsets. Took some killer photos with all the colors mirrored off the still water.
The cottage was just right for a couple of tired country folk from Texas. The R@ R was much needed.
