Overview

Grayling Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Escape from the frenzy of life to our relaxing river cottage! Right across the river from Gate's Lodge! Whether you enjoy fly-fishing, kayaking, canoeing or simply sitting by the river enjoying a good book, our place is for you!

Our cottage is situated on a prime stretch of the Holy Waters, a classic dry fly-fishing, 'flies only', 'catch and release' section, nationally recognized in the fly-fishing world. Fly fisherman travel from around the country to fish for brown, rainbow, and brook trout on this easy-to-wade river.

Simply walk out the back door and wade into the river and experience the pleasure of fishing in the world class Au Sable River.

For those of you that enjoy winter sports, the cabin is located inside the snow-belt region of Michigan. We are just a short drive from Hartwick Pines which has acres of cross-country skiing and Treetops Ski Resort in Gaylord, MI. Hartwick Pines is also one of the states premier parks for hiking and mountain biking.

Our cottage is located within minutes from charming downtown Grayling where you can visit the quaint shops and restaurants. Other nearby attractions include Forest Dunes Golf Club which was just ranked #1 public golf course in America (10 minutes), Mackinac Island (85 miles north), Hartwick Pines State Park (5 minutes) Hanson Hills Ski Resort/Park (10 minutes), Gaylord/Traverse City/Lake Michigan/Petoskey and many others.

The cabin offers 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathroom. The master bedroom has a king bed, one room has queen bunk beds and another has a single bunk bed. All beds include linens and towels are provided. Also, rental includes the use of 4 kayaks and a fly-fishing pontoon boat.

About Judith Adams

We are a family of 5 that loves the outdoors! Fly-fishing, kayaking, hiking and cross-country skiing are some of our favorite activities.

Judith Adams purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Judith Adams chose Grayling

We chose this cottage because it is an excellent location on one of the countries most prestigious fly fishing rivers. It is truly a relaxing place for our family to vacation.

What makes this cottage unique

We like our property because you can walk out the back door and right into the river. We are across from Gates lodge and Fly-shop so that we can purchase our fly-fishing gear and dine in the restaurant.

great location and cute

  • 5 of 5

We loved this big cabin right across from Rusty Gates' lodge--one of the best fly fishing locations in the world--you can catch all the brown trout you want--and a few 'bows too- if you can match the hatch-just go across the bridge and ask at the fly shop--they have a good restaurant there too-the river is very easy to wade in this area--the porch is wonderful to relax to watch and hear the river--there is a nice pier too-the cozy cottage sleeps a lot of people--very clean-the town is cute too-great place for a big family or flyfishers--romantics too-owners are very nice and helpful--a real gem.

Don't want to leave

Blown away. The place is well-kept and well-equipped. The view from the back porch is fantastic. I could grow old sitting in a rocker there, river watching. And fly fishing is my new obsession. THANK YOU!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped cottage,clean, owners are very friendly, everything you need to spend some time outdoors is right there, went fishing canoeing, kayaks are available and ready to go if you have a hook for the trailer. Just across the river there is a restaurant and fishing supply store. A few miles from the cottage many stores to buy groceries and souvenirs. Will be back next year. Love spending the week there.
