Good wintertime snowmobiling rental

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place to see how renting a house near the snowmobile trail in Gaylord would be. Very close to trails, literally like 6 houses from the snowmobile trail. The house is small but can accommodate several guests with 2 bedrooms +loft with 2 beds. Accommodations were about what you would expect for this price range, water was very aromatic (on a well) but tolerable. Appliances and decor are aged as would be expected in this price range. Overall very happy, place was clean and in excellent condition upon arrival - almost spotless! More than 1 truck and 2 place snowmobile trailer would require extra space, we didn't encounter this but should call ahead if this is a concern. Would recommend to any snowmobilers looking for a non-hotel experience.

Great place as described

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay and have a relaxing time away from all the madness of the city 1 hour away from Traverse city and Mackinaw city. Minutes away from the state park with a beautiful beach. And lively scenery all the way around.

Thank you again

Comfy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this cottage for two nights to go snowmobiling. It was very close to the trails yet far enough away that you couldn't hear the snowmobiles on the trail. The cottage is near Otsego Lake and only minutes from downtown, major stores, and restaurants. It was located in a nice neighborhood.

The cottage was clean and has all the comforts of home. It was very well equipped with utensils, dishes, pans, paper products, and towels. Anything you would need was there. There was plenty of room for our family of four - and then some. There is Wi-Fi available but the TV doesn't have cable (no big deal to us).

The plus was that the owner was so easy to deal with and was very helpful. We would definitely rent this cottage again and are already planning our return trip!
