activities and attractions in Gaylord Michigan

With a unique location on the 45 parallel, the Alpine Village of Gaylord is truly Northern Michigan's heart. 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 in the neighborhood where this chalet is located.

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. Our facilities range from rustic and scenic at the Pigeon River State Forest, to elegant and expertly groomed.

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.

Rain day? Keep the kids happy,

Visit the 24-lane Gaylord Bowling Center
•Otsego County Sportsplex , where kids and grownups can swim in an Olympic-size pool or rent a pair of skates an take to the ice for 'wintertime' fun, even as the sidewalks are sizzling outside.
•Energy Outlet, a quaint park filled with slides, swings and climbing equipment. Throughout the park are structures embedded with information and etchings of the dinosaur age, and surrounding all the fun stuff is a paved walking track.
•Call Of The Wild , where lifelike replicas of Michigan's wildlife will greet you at every turn of the tunnel. At Call of the Wild, fun and learning go hand in hand, and it's almost a sure thing that kids will want to go back again and again.

Limited to transportation of horse and buggy, bicycle or foot, surrounded by water, it has escaped the vast changes of time. Its real Victorian image is preserved and enhanced by a small population of 500 permanent residents and scores of summer residents, maintaining bluff cottages in original state. Families, especially children, love their relatively new found "mobility", exploring the historic, natural beauty of Mackinac Island State Park, honored by National Geographic as one of the ten finest in America

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Gaylord:
We chose to build this vacation rental as this area is centrally located close to hundreds of things to do, from kids to elderly. Gaylord has more than 30 golf courses, ski resorts, snowmobile trails, waterparks all within a very short drive. We are within an hour to Mackinac, 45 minutes to Traverse City or Petoskey. This home is located in a private, peaceful neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
There is so much to do at the home such as kayaking, paddleboating or rowboating as all these boats are located on your own private sandy beach along with a swim platform or you can relax on the deck in your outdoor hot tub which is usable all year 'round or you can take the kids to the pool just down the road, walking distance. You can also rent a pontoon on the big lake which is just across the road from chalet. You can view the bigger lake also from the deck. Breathtaking sunsets also. Watch the eagles which live on the lake along with loon, woodpeckers, swans, hummingbirds, you name it! I've even seen owls.
