About Donald or Kimberly LaForest
We both grew up in Michigan and have always loved all that the four seasons have to offer. Snowmobiling in the winter and golf and boating in the summer, and lets not forget the beautiful fall colors and the morals in the spring.
Donald or Kimberly LaForest purchased this House in 2012
Why Donald or Kimberly LaForest chose Gaylord
Great fishing. Less than one hour to many other northern Michigan destinations.
What makes this House unique
Private, peaceful, quiet lake. This is ideal for those vacationers looking to get away from it all and enjoy the quiet beauty northern michigan has to offer.

Great place to stay & relax. Loved the pontoon boat! Very clean and everything was provided (except food, lol). Welcome gifts were unexpected. Loved having the ice maker, washer & dryer. Could use a couple of night stands in the master bedroom. Master has 2 cedar lined closets and 2 large dressers. Didn't have to live out of suitcases. One outlet in the small sitting room didn't work. WiFi and satellite TV were a plus. DVR would have been nice. Don & Kim were very nice and have done a wonderful job remodeling. New cabinets for the kitchen were delivered while we were there. Can't wait to see the end results! Only an hour to Mackinac City, Petoskey & Turtle Creek Casino. Plenty of choice to eat out in Gaylord. Very nice gas BBQ on deck. Also nice having 1 1/2 bathrooms.
We loved staying at this property. We have done A LOT of VRBO's and this one ranks as our favorite! We would definitely come back. We walked in and it was SO clean. Best first impression ever! And then we noticed Don and Kim left us a gift on the table. What an amazing touch to a perfect weekend. The cabin has everything you need for a wonderful stay. We appreciated the use of the boat and were on it everyday. We caught 8 bass trolling the waters in the evening! We were kind of worried there was no a/c, but soon realized it's not really necessary in northern Michigan. Even when it was a little hotter outside, the cabin stayed nice and cool.
Overall this is a 5-star vacation spot. I gave location a 4 just because of the Interstate. I also gave accuracy of online listing a 4 just because we didn't see the note about no life jackets included. I still don't see it listed. Thankfully it wasn't a problem for our family since we had brought some with. We could have just used a few more.
I really cannot express how wonderful this place it. The price is right, it's a gorgeous location, and such a perfect place to get some much needed R&R. Thank you Don and Kim!
Fawn lake cottage
Loved the cottage. Knotty pine walls and very clean. Beautiful view of lake. Boat is a plus. Raft is great for diving. Highway a bit noisey but got use to it. Plenty of comfortable beds for all guests. Owners super nice!
Nice little getaway for the family!
The property and home were fantastic. We do a family vacation every year and this one was one of the best! It was a easy place to find and the lake view was amazing. The home itself was cute and quaint. Very clean! It was a nice location being in the middle of the state. There were things to do locally like go to Big Buck Brewery and play mini golf. The Gaylord City Elk Park is also cool to see. It wasn't too far of a drive to Traverse City and Mackinaw either. We stopped at Chillermania in Indian River on the way to Mackinaw which is a bookstore for those who are familiar with Johnathan Rand who famously wrote the American Chillers and Michigan Chillers books. It was nice to have a fire pit, pontoon, canoe, raft, air hockey table, and enough parking for four vehicles. There was also a washer and dryer which was a huge plus. We had different family members who came for a couple days throughout the week being a total of 10 and there was enough room for everyone to sleep. Don and Kim did a fantastic job making it seem like home for us.
Love it !!!!
This was our fifth time staying here. We're staying again next summer. Need I say more. Saw the Eagle dive for a fish and seen our first fawn there. Always get enough fish for a fish fry....
Great family vacation
This was my families second time staying at this property. The recent upgrades are beautiful. Very relaxing and just the place to stay to unwind from the stress of life. Great swimming and riding the pontoon. Meals on the deck over looking the lake.
Booking is even more easy now that you can pay through the HomeAway app.
Thanks for a great home for our family vacation.
Located on the 45th Parallel. We are on a beautiful no wake lake with great fishing. This vacation rental is located in the center of Michigans golf mecca and is conveniently located next to hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails. Don't forget the Morals in the spring, and the Colors in the fall!
