Gaylord cottage description

Our family cottage is a single level ranch style layout with (4) bedrooms (three with queen beds and the forth has two twins, a double and a bunk bed; this ''bunk room'' is great for kids). Four couches offer extra sleeping space in the living room and porch if needed. Two full baths (both with showers). The large living room has a cathedral ceiling and knotty pine walls, very popular and still plentiful in northern Michigan. A large stone fireplace (gas). A 42' plasma TV with cable is in the living room, and each bedroom has a smaller TV. Wireless high speed internet service is furnished. The dining room table seats eight easily with extra tables in the living room and the glassed-in porch. A modern well equipped kitchen (spices included) helps make meals and entertaining a breeze. Laundry room offers a washer and dryer on site.


Our Propery and THE LAKE!: Outside towards the lake you will find a relaxing 3 person swing, a 25' x 25' brick paved patio area, two BBQ grills, picnic table, portable fire pit and comfortable wrought-iron patio furniture, including 10 chairs and two additional round tables. An American flag flying high overlooks an awesome beach and swimming area. The beach is furnished with additional chairs for sunning. The sandy, rock-free swim area tapers gently from shore to the deeper water. Our private dock runs full length from the patio, across the sand, to the lake, with 80' extending out on the water. Room for docking a boat (up to ~24') or other water toys. This side of the lake usually receives a breeze, so few bugs are ever present. The wind coming through the trees can truly be glorious, and the sunsets are often breathtaking, just like in the movies!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      About the owner: Our grandparents built the original cottage on Otsego Lake in 1940. They enjoyed hunting, fishing, swimming and picking blueberries, and introduced vacation lakefront living to our parents and our family as the generations passed. The cottage expanded, adding beds and creature comforts. We retained the great old stone fireplace (now gas) and knotty pine beams throughout the main living areas. Our family now enjoys terrific boating, excellent snowmobiling, great golf and awesome skiing whenever we visit. Gaylord grew up too, and now offers all types of restaurants, shopping, kid’s attractions and a new movie theater, all five miles away or less. Our cottage is in the middle of Gaylord's 'Golf Mecca' for summmer fans of the game, and for the winter enthusiasts, we typically receive over 180 inches of snow annually due to our location in the Gaylord 'Snow Belt'.
