ALL SEASON VACATION HOME ON OTSEGO LAKE-ALL ACTIVITIES NEARBY

Gaylord Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths (Sleeps 12-16)

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!

Looking to spend some time ‘up north’

  • Submitted: Jun 3, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Per our guest's email 6/3/13:

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!

Great cabin in a great location

We rented this cabin for a family snowmobile trip and were very happy we did. The cabin has charm, history and everything you need, plus the location is great. This isn't a cabin that was purchased to be a business investment, but a family cabin with a long history. Working with the owners was a pleasure a d we would definitely recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Chris,
Thanks for the positive review! Snow has been pretty good in the Gaylord area this season. We've been sledding twice since Christmas up to Indian River and over to East Jordan/Charlevoix. Gaylord still is the best hub for trails for me. Of course the cottage on the lake and next to the trails may bias our family a bit! Think snow for 3-4 more weeks! Maybe some skiing this weekend! Glad you enjoyed! Richard

The Foursome

We went north to see the fall colors and get away from it all. The cottage was very nice and the beach was awesome. We were close to anything we needed yet far enough away from town to be relaxing. We are hoping to return next year. Maybe when it's still warm enough to enjoy the water.

Owner's Response: Kathie,
We are glad the local colors cooperated around Gaylord this year! They were actually some of the best ever.
The summer calendar is already 2/3 full for 2013, so please have a look in May and June!
Thanks for your kind comments!

We found this cottage to be one of the best equipped we have ever stayed at. Everything was as advertised. The owners have been terrific to deal with. We love the setting and the many amenities the area offers. The beach is incredible. The golfing in the area is second to none. There are a number of very good restaurants in the area. We had the occasion to meet one of the neighbours, Tom, who was very personable and helpful. We have visited this area before on a number of occasions and felt, unanimously, that a return trip to this cottage next year is a must!

Owner's Response: George,
Thanks for the kind comments! Sister Nancy and I share many memories of the Family Cottage, due in no small part to the great beach and lakefront, and many family events and gatherings. Glad your Thunder Bay friends enjoyed, and hope you return again soon, either summer or winter! Richard, Owner
