COTTAGE AT WATERS EDGE - SECORD LAKE-GLADWIN-MAIN HOUSE & SEPARATE BUNK HOUSE

Gladwin House Rental Photos and Description

Cute Cottage on Secord Lake-Sleeps 12-Newly Remodeled-Separate Bunkhouse

Our minimum stay is 2 nights.

RENTAL DATES ARE FROM APRIL 1st to NOVEMBER 30th. We do not rent during winter months.

.

'The Cottage' is great for simply relaxing or for a ton of fun and sun on Secord Lake.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the patio as the lake and area come alive for the day with bird song.

Secord Lake is an all sports lake, with 90 miles of shoreline, great for boating, skiing, tubing, swimming, kayaking and great fishing (Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike, Crappie, Perch, Bullhead, Trout and Pan fish) or go for a ride on the 4 person paddle boat (provided for guests).

Bring your own boat/ personal watercraft or rent a pontoon or speedboat from Secord Lake Marina. The boat launch is just a couple of miles from the house.

In the evening, finish your day around the fire pit with a glass of wine or make that all time favorite....S’mores.

'The Cottage' has that great “Up North” feeling that we all love and is only 2 ½-3 hours from Detroit, half way between Gladwin and West Branch.

Main house has:

2 bedrooms & full bath

Twin Size Sleeper

Full kitchen with eating area (seats 4)

Living Room with access to patio and lake

Separate Bunkhouse sleeps 6 with a half bath.

It offers:

Laundry room-washer and dryer

2 piece bathroom

1 bunk bed (full size top & bottom bunks)

2 futon sofas that fold into slightly larger than twin beds each

Kitchenette with microwave, dishes, coffee maker, toaster and small fridge.

Table with 4 chairs

2 canvas chairs

Chalkboard /assorted family games

Desk with chair

Radio that has CD player

TV with DVD player

PS2 game system including games

Window a/c unit

There is also a garage storage unit attached

The lake view is not just for summer…. enjoy the changing seasons of Michigan.....great view of the colors of autumn and the beauty of spring. I am sorry no winter rentals (between December 1st and March 31st).

Gladwin is a great place for hunters and fisherman and if you love Michigan outdoor sports, there are lots of hiking and ATV/ORV trails in the area, as we are just off of M-30 that runs thru the 85,000 acres of the Gladwin State Forest and also near Clare, Houghton Lake, West Branch, Tawas and Oscoda, etc.
