With a unique location on the 45 parallel, the Alpine Village of Gaylord is truly Northern Michigan's heart. Whether planning to travel to Gaylord for the first visit or your 31st, we know that you will be back again and again. Gaylord is unique in its centrality - only minutes from everything you could hope for in the north and things you might not expect either, like top-notch shopping, galleries, arts, music festivals & wireless internet access you can use while relaxing on one of the park benches downtown or at Sunset Beach Chalet.

Golf

With 21 golf courses which include world-class resorts and championship golf designed by some of America's top golf course designers, the Gaylord area is your dream golf destination.

Hiking

Experience all that is Northern Michigan along one of the many trails in Otsego County used for hiking, biking, x-country skiing and snowshoeing. The area abounds with pathways for outdoor enthusiasts of every skill and age level, and all are free to use with no trail passes required.

Ski & Snowshoe

In Gaylord you'll find the gently sloping terrain, heavily wooded forests and deep annual snowfall ideal for Nordic skiing. It is also not uncommon to see plentiful wildlife out on the trail.

Snowmobile

Located in the center of Northern Lower Michigan's Snow Belt, the Gaylord area averages over 180 inches of the white stuff annually. Surrounded by rolling hills, thousand of acres of unspoiled forests and numerous winter activities, Gaylord is quickly emerging as a preferred winter destination.

Elk Viewing

The Pigeon River State Forest’s expansive 105,000 acres with the Midwest’s only free ranging elk herd offers a unique wilderness experience that is just a short drive from downtown Gaylord. The Department of Natural Resources maintains this excellent elk habitat through careful forest and wildlife management or you can go to Aspen park in Gaylord for Elk Viewing

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at multiple houses at Lake Arrowhead and just love the location. Sunset Beach is a cozy cottage that was perfect for the 4 adults and 2 children that stayed the entire week. It was also large enough to accommodate a weekend stay for 2 more adults and a little dog. We loved the beach area, although the water level is definitely higher compared to the picture of the beach. We chose Sunset Beach because of the beach area for the 2 children. The kids didn't mind the lack of beach at all, at ages 8 and 5 they loved swimming out ( with life jackets provided!) to the platform and jumping off...over and over and over! The lake is small enough so that we felt very safe teaching the 8 and 5 year olds how to kayak! Fishing off the dock was the highlight for the kids, one night our granddaughter caught 19 fish! Granted they were all to small to keep, but imagine the delight in watching her face as she continued to catch little "fishies"! The association pool is a very short walk away so we enjoyed the pool in the morning and the lake in the afternoon. Sunset Beach was by far are favorite cottage. Only issue... Be very careful in reading over the contract, especially when pertaining to the number of guests staying at the cottage. Overall....a wonderful week!

Great experience! Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We went up for the weekend to get away from the busyness of life and Dorene's cottage was exactly what we needed. The home was beautiful, the hot tub was fantastic and it was a close distance to Traverse City where we spent our Saturday.

Thank you for having us Dorene, we look forward to coming back!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Took my family on our first ski/snowmobile trip. We were pretty close to everything. 20 minutes from Boyne and about 10 minutes from snowmobile trails. The cabin was very clean and beautiful. The kids loved soaking in the hot tub in between activities. There were lots of family game nights. All kinds of games are provided. We are going to make this a yearly vacation for sure.

Cozy cabin and base for hiking

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a fall stay at the Sunset Cottage. The lake was peaceful and pretty, and we particularly enjoyed watching sunset from the jacuzzi. My dog enjoyed exploring the shore, while i read a book in one of many chairs. The cottage had lots of goods touches for renters, including a Michigan outdoor recreation atlas, a map of the unpaved roads around the lake, games for kids, etc.

The house was also a great base for trips. Hartwick pines (the only old growth in the lower peninsula) was gorgeous, and we also had lunch at another of several state parks in easy driving distance.

We have already reserved the cottage again for next year.

Owner's Response: This home gets tons of repeat guests there all the time and once someone rents and leaves, they come back bringing either their friends or more family members to share this home as everyone absolutely loves staying at Sunset Beach. This home is on a dead end, quiet road, on the best side of the lake getting gorgeous sunsets, walking distance to the pool, not to mention that we are pet friendly so you can enjoy the home with your furry friend/family member:-) Pets love it up north too!!!!!!

No worries

  • 5 of 5

Everything was very easy, the place was clean and well stocked. We just added groceries and had a great time. The lake was beautiful and the kayaks made it easy to enjoy that. Internet connection was slow, but that added to the getaway feeling. Phone was poor and it would have been nice to have better reception.

Owner's Response: I'm glad these guests enjoyed their stay and all that the home has to offer with the exception of "their" phone service as AT&T works flawlessly up here so their service was the one which doesn't work in this area. Not many choices up here for internet but I am sharing what we are offered from the internet outfits up here....at least there is some sort of internet besides none at all but why would you be wasting time on electronic gadgets when you have the natural beauty of Northern Michigan to enjoy, put the gadgets down and remember what it was like without them.....you will be amazed how much more you are enjoying.
