About Melinda Study

This is a custom log home built in 2005 by family and friends with love and care. If we may say so, this is a beautiful home. There is plenty of room for golfing groups or multi generation families.

We love the Michaywe community and you will, too. The clubhouse amenities which are available for guests include indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, tennis courts, restaurant, and the Pines Golf Course. The Lake golf course is out the back door! Many more golf courses are within a few miles.

Melinda Study purchased this house in 2005

Why Melinda Study chose Gaylord

You will love this property for your vacation. Everyone that has stayed here has wanted to return. The house is on a cul-de-sac with open space off the back deck for family ball games or cross country skiing and snowshoeing. It is quiet and seems very private. We try very hard to make sure all guests are comfortable and happy.

What makes this house unique

In all seasons, there is a lot to do and enjoy. Gaylord is the golf mecca of northern Michigan. This house is centrally located for all the great things to do Up North!

Michaywe Log Home, Perfect For Large Groups

The perfect place for a fun and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 families (10 adults and 10 children) and stayed a couple of nights in this beautiful log home. Everything was perfect. There was more than enough space for all of us. Everyone loved the house. It really had everything we needed. We just brought food and music.

The beds were very comfortable.

Melinda (the owner) was very kind.

It was challenging to have 10 toddlers in one house for a weekend but they had some much fun that they really did not want to leave.

We definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to have a fun and relaxing getaway.

We would love to be back next year.

Thanks for everything Melinda.

Fernando S.

P.S.- Sorry about the popcorn.

I don't know where to start. We were met by Melinda on the day of arrival where she went through the whole home, showing us all the things we needed to know. She answered all our questions and definitely made us feel welcome.

Our group had 12 golfers, each wanting their own bed. The home had more than we needed. Plenty of bathrooms to accommodate everyone and never running out of hot water. We did grill out one night and even the grill was top shelf! There was an extra propane tank in the garage had we needed it. If you wanted to do more cooking, the kitchen was stocked with about every tool, pot, and pan you would need. And not old ratty ones that you find in many rentals. Linens were 5 star as well, and plenty of them.

I don't know who does their cleaning, but I would hire them in a heartbeat. Not a dustball to be seen.

For this being a VERY high end rental, it felt as comfortable as my own home. If you're looking for a beautiful log home that can accommodate a large group, this is the place! We will be returning the next time our golf outing brings us to the Gaylord area. Thanks again Melinda!!
