About Kent Filsinger
I have been coming up to Sugar Springs since my parents purchased the property in 1976. I road through the lake in a 4 wheel jeep before it was filled with water. I used to own a remodeling business and now my hobby is to continually improve the property for my family and our guests.
Kent Filsinger purchased this Cottage in 1976
Why Kent Filsinger chose Gladwin
I have spent 30 years improving the cottage to make your stay relaxing and memorable. Has all the amenities of a house but has the feel of a cottage with lots of natural wood and fishing and boating decor.
What makes this Cottage unique
Almost every room has a view of the water. The gardens have been a long term on going love affair. Sitting on the garden swing or hammock totally relaxes me. Seeing the sunrise from the master bedroom always puts me in the right state of mind to start the day.

We stayed in late May/early June. The weather was cool, but there was enough to do both inside the house and out to keep everyone busy. The lakeside campfires were great, and the small beach area was enjoyed greatly by our 19 mo old grandson, despite the water being cool. This is a very relaxing and beautiful home and location. Kent was very responsive whenever we had a question. A wonderful rental!
One of the best places I ever stayed. Will come again! Thanks for everything Kent!!!
Property was perfect we had 3 dogs and 3 kids up there and everyone had lots of fun!! Lake is beautiful, cabin was perfect and well organized with lots of water toys for all ages. Its in a great location on the lake one of the best in my opinion will be coming back for sure!!!!

Cabin was exactly as described fit our needs perfect!!!
Clean and had everything we needed. Kent was super easy to deal with answered all my questions quickly. Fishing was slow, but nothing you can do about that. Would like to see how great it looks in the summer.
Thank you for the nice review. Bummer on the fishing, you never know. Kent
Peaceful lakeview house!
“The barn” was a great place to relax and get away from the real world. My 7 and 4.5 year old boys never got bored with all the activities to do! Playing catch, playing in the sand, searching for sticks for our fire, and the game room! House was fully stocked with everything you need. Beautiful lake views from almost anywhere in the house. Great side door that opens up into a nice gated dog pen. If you are looking for a quiet, hidden, peaceful place to get away, check out “the barn!”
Thank you for the great review. This is why sharing the Barn is so rewarding. Kent
My daughter, granddaughter and I enjoyed our two day stay. The game room was a bonus, enjoyed the pool table, dart board and the selection of CD's. Memories were made and we'll laugh about the sinking of the kayak for a long time. (make sure the plugs are in) Great place to rent and would go back.
glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the very nice review. Kent
