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.

If I had a place like this I'd never leave.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Alpine cabin. The only problem was we weren't there long enough! Time flies when you're having fun! Everything about the cabin was great, the view, the quiet, and the easy access to the trails. We had eight people and didn't feel crowded at all, plenty of space. We will definetly come back!

Beautiful cabin and location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin and amazing location. 5 Minutes away from snowmobile trails and only a 30 minute car ride from Treetops if you want to go skiing or snowboarding. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook. Nice clean bedrooms. The owner was very nice and helpful, he made sure to answer all our questions. Thank you Ken!

Great Snowmobile Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start , the cabin was just as described inside and out . We were 4 couples and there was plenty of room for sleeping and entertaining and stocked with everything you need.The cabin was clean and well kept with great views of nature and golf course . There was lots of room for our trucks and trailers and lots of room to turn around as promised . Ken was more than accommodating even stopped by Saturday afternoon to make sure everything was going well with our stay . I would and have already recommended this or any of Ken's properties if heading to Gaylord . FYI to sledders the property is at the dead end at the top of the hill ,get a good run at the hill if snowing or ice you have lots of road to the dead end once at top of hill . Cheers to you Ken we will be seeing you again soon ..

Perfect for Snowmobiling, Exactly as pictured

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here! It even snowed just in time for us to be able to snowmobile. The home is exactly as pictured. Beds were comfortable, linens were clean, as was the rest of the home. We really enjoyed the fireplace! Host Ken stopped by a couple of times and was quickly available by phone when we had a question about the internet. It was easy to move in, and just as easy to move out. Everything we needed was available. The living room space is not large, but adjoins the dining area so we were all able to hang out in the same room together on New Year's Eve. There was LOTS of parking, which we needed. No other traffic as this home is at the end of the road. We would be happy to stay here again, and Ken was an easy host to work with. We received our deposit back quickly. Thanks for sharing with us!
