Hello - I'm Tom Kassab. Thanks for considering staying at our home on Otsego Lake. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay in our clean and newly remodeled cottage.
Tom Kassab purchased this cottage in 2007
When I first found this cottage I knew it was right for us. Great location, lots to do in Gaylord and adjoins two beautiful wooded lots for privacy that we own as well. 150' of waterfront!
This property offers it all. From Snowmobiling, Boating, fishing right off the dock, to great snow skiing and restaurants/shopping just a few minutes away. SUPER CLEAN COTTAGE!!!
Everything we needed for the weekend except for food and clothing was in the cottage. The kitchen was fully equipped, including a waffle iron, and coffee maker.
The bedrooms are small but adequate, and we used a fan which came with the cottage to keep the bedrooms cool at night when we slept.
Towels and linens were provided with the cottage, so no need to bring along towels unless you want them for use on the beach.
The property is adjacent to a canal which leads into Otsego Lake. The canal is suitable for boats, but not swimming. For swimming there is the county park with a beach nearby , as well as the state park and a public beach.
Our deposit was returned a week after we vacated the cottage.
Nice, clean little place. Great value for the price. Definately will go back next time up.
Not a bad little place for the price. Was able to get a jet ski up the channel. I would give higher reviews, but when we showed up my number wasn't programed so we had to wait around for a while for someone to show up and let us in. Some kind of miss communication with the owner and property manager. Also the dishwasher was broken, not cool! Finally, I felt cleaning should just be included, sitting around waiting for the sheets to dry in the dryer is not cool when you just want to get home.
We were there from 6/30/2015 - 7/5/2015 and had a great time.I do have some feedback however:
My original plan was to use the canal to dock a couple jetski's and cruise Otsego lake. When I got there I realized there were huge bolts sticking out of the seawall every 7 feet, no cleats to tie anything up to, and no ladder to climb up from. Also the water depth was around 1ft near the seawall.
The terms and conditions tell you that using the canal is at your own risk... but lets just put it bluntly, its unusable. Your renting property on the water, but its only for the view, not for use.
I ended up going to Houghton Lake twice (45 minute drive), and Torch Lake (50 minute drive) for July4th, and I had a blast.
Kitchen was well stock with everything I needed to make great meals.
I got my security deposit back promptly
Owner let me extend my stay with ease
Grill was dirty, and empty. The cover is ripped, and the tree drops all kinds of stuff on it. (I had my own grill so I used that, or I would have been more unhappy)
Can-Opener is still broke (Originally submitted in feedback a long time ago)
No dishwasher soap
Cant use canal
We came up for a couple days and found the cottage clean and a great location by a lake. We were taken by how the neighbors around the cottage are very friendly. I would recommend this place to friends who want to get away and explore Michigan. Hope to go back in the future.
We rented the cottage for two nights because we went to Gaylord to go snowmobiling. The cottage does have everything you need including pans, dishes, and paper supplies. I must say the cottage is well appointed. Everything is new and looks nice. The bathroom is spa-like. The room with the bunk beds is very small and hard to move around for an adult. My kids didn't end up sleeping in there because the heater was right by this room and it was loud. So this wouldn't be a problem in the summer time. I know that I knew up front but I didn't like having to clean up the place including washing the sheets and towels, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, etc. It is a lot to get done before you check out at 11:00. I would not have had enough time if I would have had to wash the bunk bed sheets too and if I didn't wash the towels the night before. The owner was fair and easy to work with.
We are just a very short walk from the Otsego County Park (5 blocks)
