About Ken Borton

Ken has been in the residental and comercial property management business for 35 years.

Ken Borton purchased this house in 1995

Why Ken Borton chose Mancelona

The home and area offers four seasons of fun. Golf and ATV riding in the summer. Beautiful fall color tours. A winter sports paradise. Spring brings new wildflowers, hikes and morel mushroom hunting.

Gaylord has always been my first choice for vacations. It gave me a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the peace and quiet of northern Michigan.

What makes this house unique

During the winter months, enjoy the convenience of parking your sleds right out side your door. Fire them up in the morning a head out for a day of spectacular riding. My favorite day trip is going to the Mackinac Bridge and back.

Visit the Snowman

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Snowman Cabin. The home of Snowmancam.com. The owner was extremely helpful and made us feel comfortable throughout our visit. The location was ideal as a "jumping" off point for travel in and around the Gaylord Area or simply as a place to stay and enjoy the outdoors. We enjoyed this cabin, though it is more a home, for its comfort and conveniences. Dining places, as pointed out by the owner, were both nearby and offered reasonably priced good food. We were grateful for the comfort and ease of access afforded with the Snowman Cabin. I totally recommend this property and the owner.

Our host pointed out the trails and gave us some good places to eat, We loved the layout of the house and felt right at home, It was immaculate and provided us every thing we needed, even laundry facilities right in the home. couldnt have been happier. I will let my friends know about this place..
