About Donald or Kimberly LaForest

We both grew up in Michigan and have always loved all that the four seasons have to offer. Snowmobiling in the winter and golf and boating in the summer, and lets not forget the beautiful fall colors and the morals in the spring.

Donald or Kimberly LaForest purchased this house in 2012

Why Donald or Kimberly LaForest chose Gaylord

Great fishing. Less than one hour to many other northern Michigan destinations.

What makes this house unique

Private, peaceful, quiet lake. This is ideal for those vacationers looking to get away from it all and enjoy the quiet beauty northern michigan has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We snowmobiled on Friday. Saturday went shopping. Out to dinner at Marsh Ridge. Favorite moments were playing cards with our daughter & husband. We don't get to do that much anymore.

We had a wonderful stay here. Nice and clean and loved having the washer and dryer. We would recommend this to some of our friends back home that also come up here.

Could use a few more little skillets for frying eggs and some plastic utensils and a toaster.

We enjoyed our stay here very much.

This place met all our needs for our family of 6 adults & two grandchildren 7 & 9. It was clean and had a nice layout. The deck, gas grill, dock, boat, lake were very nice & the garage was a plus for the bikes,ect. We hope to stay here again next summer. Thanks Don & Kim!

All Season Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had our first vacation in Michigan. The trip was wonderful and relaxing. The home that we rented was very clean and accommodating. The owners were wonderful to work with while booking our vacation rental. This was our first experience renting this kind of property. This was a positive experience and would love to recommend the property. The lake, boats, and home are a vacation all in itself; the state is another beauty to behold!

A great cottage on a great lake

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a most wonderful time in this very well laid out, clean, well maintained and furnished cottage, on a splendid quiet lake.

Some days we hung out in the cottage and the lake. The kids (7,5, & 2) has a great time using the 'relaxation station' big floaty thing that they have, and we enjoyed using the pontoon to explore the lake, and go fishing.

Other days we went to Gaylord and Hartwick Pines - we hiked, saw elk, played crazy golf, did a little antiquing, more hiking - we went to the Gaylord Tourist information and they gave is maps of the the local parks that had very well.

This cottage is great for families, and the attached decking made meals times easy and spacious. It was beautiful to eat amongst the tree.

The owners were very accommodating and low key.

Although we have done Gaylord a few times and were not planning on coming back, this cottage and lake may pull us back again.

Great Family Location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Michigan Vacation and I am now sold. Its a great location for all ages (ranging from 13-72). We enjoyed the lake view and the guys (young and old) loved the fishing. The owners were great to work with and were also available for any questions that we might have had. House was roomy and clean. Many things to do locally...

Great stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here. The lake is very quiet and secluded. The house itself is clean and well represented by the pictures. The pontoon boat is a wonderful bonus! Owners were very responsive and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend.
