Gladwin House Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 12 (3 bedrooms- 1 Sofa sleeper) / 2 Full Baths. Cozy home on Lake Lancer
'Woods & Water' is where you will enjoy comfort, fun and relaxing in our cozy-comfy cabin type home on Lake Lancer. Enjoy your breakfast on the large deck while you listen to the birds and watch the sun come up. Relax in the log swing or Adirondack chairs while watching the sun set on the lake… feel the gentle breeze in the large tree shaded yard. Head out on the lake for some great fishing (Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike and Pan fish). In the evening, sit around the fire pit with a glass of wine or make S’mores.
Woods & Water is the perfect place for that great “Up North” feeling that we all love and is only 2 ½-3 hours from Detroit.
The main floor living area is a combination living room (with Franklin stove-style gas fireplace), dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and enclosed porch with windows and door- walls that look out over the deck, woodsy yard and the lake. The main floor also includes a master bedroom (queen bed), queen sofa sleeper, a full bath and laundry room. The second floor has a full bath and 2 bedrooms with 2 full size beds in each room. All bed & bath linens are provided
Although the property does not have a private sandy beach, the shoreline is grass and runs right up to the water which is shallow enough for small children to swim and play.

The lake view is not just for summer…. enjoy all the changing seasons of Michigan.....great view of the colors of autumn…beautiful snow covered lake during the winter.
During the summer enjoy the lake with swimming, boating, skiing/tubing, and fishing etc.
Great place for hunters and fisherman and if you love Michigan outdoor sports there are lots and lots of trails in the area for hiking, ATV/ORV, X-country skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing as we are just off of M-30 that runs thru the 85,000 acres of the Gladwin State Forest and also near Clare, Houghton Lake, West Branch, Tawas and Oscoda, etc.
Winter is also a great time to enjoy the lake with Snowmobiling, X-County Skiing and Ice Fishing….all of which you can do right outside the door or just about anywhere nearby.
Spend a few hours sledding with the kids on the hills or skating on the pond at the Sugar Springs campground chalet. Getting a little chilled from your day out-doors..........warm up at the outside fire pit or the indoor fireplace inside the Chalet.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time and love your place there. Everything was great. We loved the location and the wrap around porch, swing and just the entire property. Please send me info on your other places in the area as we are thinking about returning next year.
