For over twenty years my wife ran the health food store in Gaylord while I ran the bookstore. Could you even imagine a more satisfying occupation than being a bookseller. Well now we are both into our second careers; day caring our 2 grandchildren. They are a lot of work and we are exhausted but we get lots of hugs and kisses.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1993

We love this place so much. I have to pinch myself when I'm sitting with my feet up and a book in my lap looking out over Opal Lake. We are happy to share our home with you at least until we aren't needed for our day jobs.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5
We'd never been there before and it was a lovely surprise. Loved all the flowers that greet you as you get to the end of the long driveway through an older pine woods. The house is simple, yet charming and warm. Looks just like the pictures. We especially loved the back porch with the view of the lake. The deck is quite spacious and completely childproof. It was as good for a rainy day as a sunny one because of the charm of the log walls and that lovely porch. The kitchen was nice and we liked the openness of the kitchen/dining area. And the walk down to the lake surrounded by more flowers was a real treat. We appreciated the quiet as we were there just to relax and enjoy the lake. Gaylord is also a lovely town with plenty of shopping and dining. The owners were easy to deal with and we'd definitely recommend it to our friends. We look forward to visiting again.

Not your typical rental

We spent a glorious week at this amazing log cabin. A wonderful marriage of both old and new. All the rustic feel of up north yet with all the modern amenities. The minute you walk into the cabin, it feels like home-due greatly to the owners very apparent love and care of this beautiful place nestled on the shore of Opal Lake. I'm uncertain how they can remove themselves from it, but those of us fortunate to live here, albeit briefly, benefit greatly! Sitting on the dock watching the sunrise every morning was breathtaking. Even the morning when there was fog. A tranquil , relaxing sanctuary surrounded by beautiful woods. Wonderful location-easy access to freeways and close enough to town yet far enough away to feel remote. A great blend of a peaceful setting as well as being an all sports lake. It has so much to offer. A sandy beach area, great views of the lake, a fire pit for bonfires, and lovely gardens. Such a glorious home this is, we cannot wait to return next summer and hopefully every year after.

stay at this home for a great time

  • 5 of 5
My wife and children and I have stayed at this lakefront home three times over the past six years and we have had a wonderful experience each time. The owner accurately describes the details of the home in the listing information and the home is well-maintained and clean. We have never had any problems or issues whatsoever.. The owners are very nice and readiliy available to answer any questions that might arise. A neighbor of ours stayed at the home before we did, and invited one of our children to go with them on that occasion, which is how we learned of the availabiity of the home. I would certainly recommend this property for a relaxing stay up North in Michigan. The lake is only steps from the home and there is a great patio deck for lounging and cooking out. The Gaylord area is so convenient for all sorts of activities - golfing, canoeing on the Au Sable River in Grayling, drive up to the Mackinac Bridge and Mackinac Island for a day trip, go to Petosky for shopping, or to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Plenty to do, since Gaylord is so centrally located. But, the best part is just lounging at the home and being in the water. All in all, a great time.
