About Ken Borton

Ken has been in the residental and comercial property management business for 35 years.

Ken Borton purchased this house in 2005

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.

In the summer, relax in privacy, with a drink, on either of the decks overlooking the 14th fairway. Enduldge in a BBQ, campfire and some laughs with friends and family while enjoying the evening breeze.

Perfect Location for Golf

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cabin, tucked at the end of a dead end dirt road, plenty of room for 6 guys on a golf weekend. I would recommend it to anyone. Ken was excellent to work with as well!

Shady Cabin near The Big Ticket Festival in Gaylord

  • 4 of 5

There were plenty of comfortable beds and lots of hot water for all of us. Not too far from the Otsego Fair Grounds, where we went to The Big Ticket Festival. If you want solitude, this is the place for you! :)

Great home for a golf getaway

Property was in great condition with plenty of comfortable living space. We stayed here while on a golf trip and were surrounded by tons of quality golf courses within extremely short distances. I highly recommend this place! Thanks again Ken
