Our beautiful golf front home is located on the 15th green of the Lakes Golf Course, with cross-country ski paths just outside the back door. White-tail deer and red fox cavort within view of the great room windows. The Michaywe Clubhouse, complete with pool, spa and bar/restaurant, is a short walk through the hardwoods in the summer, or a quick ride on snowmobile-friendly roads.
The first floor open concept Great Room offers a panoramic view of the woods and golf course via floor to ceiling windows. You will enjoy plenty of comfortable seating as you relax in front of the 55 inch TV.
A private Oasis can be created by closing the French doors into the Family Room. The Family Room offers it's own 48 inch flat screen TV, along with home theater system and comfortable seating.
The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and provides everything you will need to create a gourmet meal at home.
The first floor master bedroom has a queen size bed and a flat screen TV with ample closet space. Additionally, the 1st floor guest bedroom has a queen bed and a twin size bed. There is a newly remodeled custom bathroom with heated tile floors for your comfort. The laundry room is conveniently located on the first floor, as well.
The 2nd floor enclosed loft bedroom has 2 twin beds and a trundle bed that sleeps an additional 2 guests. The second floor bathroom has been newly updated with tile and granite.
We can easily accommodate 8 people.
There are 3 TVs and a DVD/BluRay player, along with a video library for your use. Add to that the wood-burner, and it is even a great place for rainy days. The large deck with 2 patio sets stretches across the back of the house and seats everyone comfortably as you experience the golf course or wooded view.
Additional amenities include a stainless steel gas grill, high definition Charter Cable Television, and WIFI.
The home is a short distance from I-75 and a few miles from downtown Gaylord. It is located in the Golf Mecca of the Midwest, rated as one of the top 5 golf destinations in America. Mackinaw Island and Odawa Casinos are within an hour's drive, and Boyne Mountain and the Highlands are within a half hour. Hundreds of miles of ORV trails can be reached from the driveway. Many inland lakes have public boat launches and a state park is located at Otsego Lake, just 4 miles down the road.
We have always loved Northern Michigan!!!
We currently work and reside in the Bay City area.
As the former golf course superintendent here, Ron had always longed to go back to this area.
We had been house hunting out of the country, when it occurred to us, we should consider purchasing Up North. That is exactly what we did. As it turns out, we are fortunate to be located within a few houses of some great long time friends.
We have been associated with rental management companies for the past 12 years and just recently decided we can manage our own property, as I am currently in the property management business and love working with people. My husband still is in the golf course business.
Sue or Ron Karoub purchased this house in 2001
We have friends who own in Michaywe, and were invited to come up for a weekend, along with two other couples. They had informed us that there was a listing just down the street from them. So we planned on seeing the property while we were up for that weekend. We did look at this home and other properties, but both of us decided that this was the house for us and we purchased it immediately.
We loved the combination of the golf course and the woods. We can watch the golfers and see the wildlife scamper around the woods (sometimes in our own yard).
I love all the glass in the back of the house that allows us to watch outside for hours. We find our home to be peaceful, comfortable and relaxing.
