Overview

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. Not available 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 or Pontoon that seats 5 (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.

Wished could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5
This place was great! Had to change my date and they were every understanding and cooperative. The place was very clean, quiet, relaxing. The decor and setup of house and bunkhouse is awesome - great job. My teenagers loved it as well. Well worth the price. One of favorite places I have rented to date. Definitely would recommend!

Wonderful accommodations-Great family time

  • 4 of 5
Even before our arrival the managers were very responsive to all my many questions. Upon our arrival we were pleasantly surprised and how well decorated both houses were and amazed by all the extras! Although we had a lot of rain we still enjoyed swimming, boat rides (both paddle boat and on the pontoon), fishing, jogs, bike rides and camp fires. The night sky around the camp fire was amazing. The owners were so nice and accommodating. This was a great value and a great time.

1000 Times better than expected

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin to attend a wedding for a friend of ours on Secord Lake. When I was told how much it was for the weekend I was pretty skeptical of what we were getting. One of our guests is 5 months pregnant so you can imagine the fear we had with it not being up to standard for her. When we walked into the cabin we were pleasantly surprised by what looked like a complete renovation. There was A/C, a flat screen TV with Direct TV, big couch, stove, microwave, oven, full size fridge, dishwasher. The rooms were spacious and everything look very new. Then we went to the bunk house, which is like another 800 sq foot apartment with a washer and dryer and 2 bunk beds with fullsize beds as well as a bathroom, mini fridge, sink, coffee maker, PS2, and 2 couchs. The property is right on the water, so we rented a pontoon boat for the weekend and were able to park it right out back on the dock. There was a paddle boat there for us to use also. We had a BBQ there for us also, that we used each night we were there and a nice fire pit where we kept a fire going the whole weekend. At the end of the day the cabin was way more than expected, and I cant say enough good things about the rental. Very clean, very organized, very well kept and the amenitites are more like an extend stay hotel than a cabin up north. The group I went with has already discussed renting it again this year and we will without a doubt be back. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get away. You could easily sleep 9-10 people in this cabin and bunkhouse.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Cottage at Waters Edge provided us with a fantastic vacation spot for several days. The inside was very well kept and modern making us feel right at home. Outside we made great use of the built in bonfire pit that over looked the water. The owners are fantastic and provided many of the amenities we were unsure we would have. The cabins location just off M-30 leaves you feeling secluded, but with the ease of a short drive to the downtown area. We rented kayaks from a place only a few miles away and were able to take a nice relaxing trip down the Cedar River. Overall, the cabin was everything I could hope for and I would recommend it to anyone trying to getaway for a few stress-free days. I'll surely be returning for future trips.
