activities and attractions in Gaylord Michigan
With a unique location on the 45 parallel, the Alpine Village of Gaylord is truly Northern Michigan's heart. Whether planning to travel to Gaylord for the first visit or your 31st, we know that you will be back again and again. Gaylord is unique in its centrality - only minutes from everything you could hope for in the north and things you might not expect either, like top-notch shopping, galleries, arts, music festivals & wireless internet access you can use while relaxing on one of the park benches downtown or in the neighborhood where this chalet is located.
With 21 golf courses which include world-class resorts and championship golf designed by some of America's top golf course designers, the Gaylord area is your dream golf destination.
Experience all that is Northern Michigan along one of the many trails in Otsego County used for hiking, biking, x-country skiing and snowshoeing. The area abounds with pathways for outdoor enthusiasts of every skill and age level, and all are free to use with no trail passes required.
Ski & Snowshoe
In Gaylord you'll find the gently sloping terrain, heavily wooded forests and deep annual snowfall ideal for Nordic skiing. It is also not uncommon to see plentiful wildlife out on the trail. Our facilities range from rustic and scenic at the Pigeon River State Forest, to elegant and expertly groomed.
Located in the center of Northern Lower Michigan's Snow Belt, the Gaylord area averages over 180 inches of the white stuff annually. Surrounded by rolling hills, thousand of acres of unspoiled forests and numerous winter activities, Gaylord is quickly emerging as a preferred winter destination.
The Pigeon River State Forest’s expansive 105,000 acres with the Midwest’s only free ranging elk herd offers a unique wilderness experience that is just a short drive from downtown Gaylord. The Department of Natural Resources maintains this excellent elk habitat through careful forest and wildlife management.

My husband and I have a daughter and we decided to move to this area when she started kindergarten. We originally built our vacation home in this area but made it big enough as we knew from that moment that we wanted to move into this area. We are originally from the Downriver Area.
Owner purchased this chalet in 2010
Why Owner chose Gaylord
We chose to build this vacation rental as this area is centrally located close to hundreds of things to do, from kids to
elderly. Gaylord has more than 30 golf courses, ski resorts, snowmobile trails, waterparks all within a very short drive. We are within an hour to Mackinac, 45 minutes to Traverse City or Petoskey.
This home is located in a private, peaceful neighborhood.
What makes this chalet unique
There is so much to do at the home such as kayaking, paddleboating or rowboating as all these boats are located on your own private sandy beach along with a swim platform or you can relax on the deck in your outdoor hot tub which is usable all year 'round or you can
take the kids to the pool just down the road, walking distance. You can also rent a pontoon on the big lake which is just across the road from chalet. You can view the bigger lake also from the deck. Breathtaking sunsets also. Watch the eagles which live on the lake along with loon, woodpeckers, swans, hummingbirds, you name it! I've even seen owls.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dorene has thought of everything for the renters in this place!! We enjoyed our stay so much and couldn't have asked for anything more. What a great way to get away and relax and still be able to do it all. Typically you can sacrifice privacy when you stay on a lake but not at The Bear's Den!! You get the privacy of a wooded area w/ all the amenities of being on a lake and in assoc w/ a pool. We had the best vacation ever and hope that we can do it again and continue to make more great memories!! Dorene is the greatest!! If you are looking for a place that has it all then this is your place!!
