About Ken Borton

Ken and his wife Brenda have been in the property management business for 40 years. They own and manages seven vacation homes in the Gaylord area. They guarantee you will be satisfied with your stay. If something is not right and it's in their control, they will make it right. You have their name on it.

Ken Borton purchased this house in 1995

Why Ken Borton chose Northern Michigan

The home and area offers four seasons of fun. Golf and ATV riding in the summer. Beautiful fall color tours. A winter sports paradise. Spring brings new wildflowers, hikes and morel mushroom hunting.

Gaylord has always been my first choice for vacations. It gave me a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the peace and quiet of northern Michigan.

What makes this house unique

During the winter months, enjoy the convenience of parking your sleds right out side your door. Fire them up in the morning a head out for a day of spectacular riding. My favorite day trip is going to the Mackinac Bridge and back.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely gorgeous, and the house is fully furnished. We had a group of 11, and this was perfect for a large group. It is very secluded yet in close proximity to several great cross country ski options. The famous "Snowman Cam" is on this property which was a fun feature! We loved it and would highly recommend it for a great winter escape.

Sno Drift week!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and the group I was with loved this place. Great proximity to town (a luxury up here) and features we didn't have at our last cabin. Beds were great, the use of a garage was awesome, Ken (the owner) was never more than a text or phone call away if we had questions/issues.

Having 3 bathrooms and two showers made for quick mornings with a group our size (10-11 guys). When we weren't out at the SnoDrift rally we passed the time exploring the area, making use of the pool table, and big screen tv.

Snow Bud Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Snowman Cabin for two nights. The occasion was to snowmobile and catch up on each others lives because our snowmobile group hadn't been together for over 8 years. The cabin was great, we had 8 of us and everyone was very comfortable. Everything about the cabin was as advertised. The location was ideal because it was close to the snowmobile trail. If we have a large group as we did this year we will rent this cabin again in the future.
