Our family cottage is a single level ranch style layout with (4) bedrooms (three with queen beds and the forth has two twins, a double and a bunk bed; this ''bunk room'' is great for kids). Four couches offer extra sleeping space in the living room and porch if needed. Two full baths (both with showers). The large living room has a cathedral ceiling and knotty pine walls, very popular and still plentiful in northern Michigan. A large stone fireplace (gas). A 42? plasma TV with cable is in the living room, and each bedroom has a smaller TV. Wireless high speed internet service is furnished. The dining room table seats eight easily with extra tables in the living room and the glassed-in porch. A modern well equipped kitchen (spices included) helps make meals and entertaining a breeze. Laundry room offers a washer and dryer on site.
Our Propery and THE LAKE!: Outside towards the lake you will find a relaxing 3 person swing, a 25' x 25' brick paved patio area, two BBQ grills, picnic table, portable fire pit and comfortable wrought-iron patio furniture, including 10 chairs and two additional round tables. An American flag flying high overlooks an awesome beach and swimming area. The beach is furnished with additional chairs for sunning. The sandy, rock-free swim area tapers gently from shore to the deeper water. Our private dock runs full length from the patio, across the sand, to the lake, with 80' extending out on the water. Room for docking a boat (up to ~24') or other water toys. This side of the lake usually receives a breeze, so few bugs are ever present. The wind coming through the trees can truly be glorious, and the sunsets are often breathtaking, just like in the movies!

Thanks Richard. We had an awesome time and the cottage was perfect for the kids and grandkids. They even braved the lake. We had plenty of room and the bunk room was perfect for the young ones. The cottage was very well equipped and everything else was so close being in Gaylord. I really hope we can do it again. Thanks for sharing your cottage and providing us a wonderful stay.
Owner's reply: Hope the kids liked the beach and the lake as much as I did ... we put the docks in about 4 hours prior to your arrival! Come visit again!
