Gaylord house description

Surround yourself in knotty pine at your home away from home. Gather the whole family here and enjoy the large great room with a wood fireplace. Play some games by the fire or enjoy a movie from our video library. This is a family friendly place with a loft area for all the kids to sleep in. Or plan your next golf get-away or winter romp here at the Pine House.

This 2,100 square foot home is located in the Michaywe development on a cul-de-sac and is surrounded by wooded lots. It has three bedrooms: one upstairs with a king-sized bed, TV/VCR/DVD, another one upstairs with a queen-sized bed and one downstairs with a queen-sized bed. There is a loft with a full futon with a bunk on top, another bunk bed, a twin available upon request and a TV/VCR. There are two full baths, a full kitchen and a large great room with a wood fireplace and an entertainment center with a TV/VCR/DVD, large video library and stereo. There is a large deck in back with a charcoal grill and a bonfire pit.
While here, you can enjoy the free amenities of the Michaywe Owners Association, including the clubhouse (restaurant, bar, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pool, spa and sauna), lighted and groomed cross-country ski trails and a private beach with beach house and playground at Opal Lake. Two 18 hole golf courses are also located within the Michawye development.

Just minutes from Gaylord, take advantage of all the unique downtown shops, bars and resturants. Enjoy snowmobiling (rentals available in town) on hundreds of miles of groomed trails accessible right from our front door. Downhill skiing at Boyne Mountain or Tree Tops is under 1/2 hour away.

Michigan's 'Alpine Village' is famous for it's 21 championship-caliber golf courses, as well as it's location in the center of the Michigan Snow Belt.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: In 2000, our family set out to buy the perfect Up North vacation home. Our clan consisted of my husband and myself, (pregnant with our first child), my sister, her husband and their daughter Brittany, and my mom. After a few weekends looking around the northern part of the Lower Peninsula, two-thirds of us came upon the Pine House. That two-thirds convinced the other one-third (my husband and I) to buy the home sight-unseen, as they were so anxious to make it our own. We made the leap, and many years later (and a total of six more children later) we are still enjoying our Up North vacation retreat.

              Why the Owner Chose Gaylord:
              Gaylord fit our needs, as we wanted to enjoy the quiet and beauty of the outdoors, while still having the conveniences of a nearby city. Gaylord is home to many golf courses, lakes and beaches for summertime enjoyment, and it is also located in the middle of the Michigan Snow Belt, allowing us to ski, snowmobile and sled. Michaywe Owners Association also fit our needs as it has it's own indoor pool, beach and playground, perfect for our growing family.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Over the years, our family has had bonfires with s'mores, songwriting and games of 'telephone', walks in the woods, bike rides, long days at the beach, snowmobile rides, quiet time with our own families as well as large family reunions, boating excursions, movie and game nights, fire-side chats and stargazing. As our children have grown, and we are lured by other vacation destinations, we have used our vacation home less and less. We are now offering it to others to enjoy as we have. Joining VRBO has been a joy, as I have learned that mushroom hunting is a spring-time sport in Gaylord and also how to make a 'dough boy' by an open fire.
