Whether planning to travel to Gaylord for the first visit or your 31st, we know that you will be back again and again. Gaylord is unique in its centrality - only minutes from everything you could hope for in the north and things you might not expect either, like top-notch shopping, galleries, arts, music festivals & wireless internet access you can use while relaxing on one of the park benches downtown or at the Cabin!

Golf
With 21 golf courses which include world-class resorts and championship golf designed by some of America's top golf course designers, the Gaylord area is your dream golf destination.

Hiking
Experience all that is Northern Michigan along one of the many trails in Otsego County used for hiking, biking, x-country skiing and snowshoeing. The area abounds with pathways for outdoor enthusiasts of every skill and age level, and all are free to use with no trail passes required.

Ski & Snowshoe
In Gaylord you'll find the gently sloping terrain, heavily wooded forests and deep annual snowfall ideal for Nordic skiing. It is also not uncommon to see plentiful wildlife out on the trail.

Snowmobile
Located in the center of Northern Lower Michigan's Snow Belt, the Gaylord area averages over 180 inches of the white stuff annually. Surrounded by rolling hills, thousand of acres of unspoiled forests and numerous winter activities, Gaylord is quickly emerging as a preferred winter destination.

Elk Viewing
The Pigeon River State Forest’s expansive 105,000 acres with the Midwest’s only free ranging elk herd offers a unique wilderness experience that is just a short drive from downtown Gaylord. The Department of Natural Resources maintains this excellent elk habitat through careful forest and wildlife management or you can go to Aspen park in Gaylord for Elk Viewing

Rain day? Keep the kids happy,

Location

Gaylord, Michigan, United States

The neighborhood is private and quiet. Most homes in neighborhood are 2nd homes so not many full time neighbors which adds to seclusion.
Need to go to town, 15 minutes and you are Downtown Gaylord with stores galore, Meijers, Walmart, Aldi, Family Fare, oh and lots of restaurants, from mom and pop shops such as Diana's Delights, Alpine Tavern, and also Lucky's Steak House, Big Bucks to restaurants you are familiar with such as Ruby Tuesday, Applebees, Big Boys, Bob Evans, etc, list goes on and on! Gaylord is known as Vacationland!
Located on the 45th parallel, Gaylord offers easy access directly off I-75 and is truly the heart of northern Michigan. We are known for our year round diverse "All Outdoor" adventures found in the breathtaking beauty of our water (over 90 inland lakes and 5 pristine rivers) and land (miles of distinct parks, forest and trails). Our recently remodeled downtown is bursting with eclectic shops, microbrews, tasty dining options and a new vibe, while still embracing our trademark Swiss-themed architecture and friendly ambiance. Winter flurries bring enough powder to snowmobile, snowshoe, ice fish, downhill and cross country ski, and fat tire biking is hitting the scene! Your winter wonderland awaits in Gaylord!

My husband, John and I truly love everything Up North offers from Lake living, trail riding, hiking, boating to Snowmobiling as this area defines the word Vacationland! The chalets/cabins/cottages which we offer are our own personal cabins which we stay at as much as possible. We offer lakefront chalets, cabins, cottages in three different hot spot areas....Gaylord, (both Lake Arrowhead and Otsego Lake), Indian River and Mullett Lake (Topinabee). We love sharing our Vacation Homes to guests to create memories with their families just as we have as well as give you an experience living in the area which you will never forget. All the homes are strictly set up for the Vacationer/Guest in mind and all in highly desirable areas with so many different type of activities imaginable for any age group and all my homes which I offer have amenities which everyone needs (like me!!!) such as Wi-Fi, Cable TV, Air Conditioning, updated bathrooms and kitchens plus kayaks to use with each and every lake front home, some cabins having also canoes and Paddleboats not to mention, private Outdoor Hot Tubs at all the homes usable all year 'round on your own private deck, no sharing our tubs or amenities with complete strangers.....ewe! plus they are all CLEAN! Cabins are Pet Friendly (fee posted in house rules) as our four-legged family members love it Up North too. If you have anything in mind that you want to do, I would be happy to offer what I know and will supply you with tons of information on the area and surrounding area for day trip ideas, tourist traps. The list of links which I supply will keep you busy all day long, hot tub will feel AWESOME at the end of your day of sight seeing:-) Thanks for checking out my vacation homes!
