Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2BR/1BA Plus Enclosed Porch - Sleeps 6

This full log cabin cottage is very clean and cozy. In the words of one of our past guests, 'it's so cute, you could eat it with a spoon'. Our cottage sleeps up to a maximum of 6 people comfortably in two bedrooms plus a fully enclosed front porch with twin bed. There's one bath (shower in bedroom), a full kitchen w/gas stovetop and microwave and refrigerator, and aliving/dining area with cable TV, DVD/VHS and stereo w/ iPod player. The cottage is carpeted throughout and has a natural gas furnace. The backyard offers a gas BBQ grill under a covered open air back porch, outdoor dining table and chairs w/umbrella, and a fire pit. Our cottage is conveniently located 10 minutes south of downtown Gaylord, MI on all-sports Otsego Lake in the private beachfront association of Arbutus Beach. There is a limited view of the lake just 60 yards from the cabin. The beach is ideal for children with its warm, shallow, sandy bottom.

Gaylord is known as the 'Golf Mecca of the Midwest'. A dozen golf courses are within a 5 - 20 minute drive, including Otsego Club, Treetops, Michaywe (Pines), Mountain Lakes, The Loon, Hidden Valley, Black Forest, The Natural, Gaylord Country Club, and Marsh Ridge. No matter what season you visit, you'll always find something fun to do in this beautiful location.

Comfortable Log Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. The cottage is not located on the lake but a short walk down the street to the beach. Great place to relax and enjoy a sunset. Cabin was warm, was well stocked and had all the cooking and eating equipment that was promised. The beds were comfortable.

We were greeted by a friendly note from the proprietor.

There are enough beds and adequate living area for a family. I recommend this rental
