Gaylord cottage description

This full log cabin cottage is very clean and cozy, and in the words of one of our past guests, 'it's so cute, you could eat it with a spoon'.

Our cottage accommodates a maximum of 6 occupants in two bedrooms plus a fully enclosed front porch with twin bed. There's one bath, a full kitchen and living/dining area with cable TV, DVD/VHS and stereo. The cottage is carpeted throughout and has a natural gas furnace. The backyard offers a gas grill under a covered open air back porch, a picnic table w/ umbrella and a firepit. The cottage is available from April 1 till November 1.

Our cottage is conveniently located 10 minutes south of downtown Gaylord, MI on all-sports Otsego Lake in the private beachfront association of Arbutus Beach. There is a limited view of the lake just 60 yards from the cabin. The beach is ideal for children with its warm, shallow, sandy bottom.

Gaylord is known as the “Golf Mecca of the Midwest”. More than 25 golf courses are within a 5-45 minute drive, including Treetops, Michaywe, Hidden Valley, The Natural, Marsh Ridge, and many more.

No matter what season you visit, you'll always find something fun to do in this beautiful location.

For reservations and more information, please email or call.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Having our own private, sandy beach and dock (for association residents only) just 60 yards from our cabin makes this the perfect getaway for families and couples. The neighbors are friendly, the golf and recreation are fantastic, and virtually outside our door. Just 10 minutes away, downtown Gaylord has all the shops and services of a larger town, including Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart, Kohl's, Meijer, and Glen's Market. There's always something going on, from the Farmer's Market, to craft and antique shows, music festivals, fairs, and air shows. Our location is central to a half dozen ideal tourism destinations, with none more than 20 minutes to an hour's drive away. Boyne Falls: 20 minutes Charlevoix: 45 minutes Harbor Springs/Petoskey: 45 minutes Traverse City: 50 minutes Mackinac Island: 50 minutes We can get in our car and within 1 hour be on a boat for Mackinac Island, spend a long day there, and drive back in time for Margarita's on the beach, a steak on the grill, small bonfire in the firepit, and then kick back and read or watch sports on TV. The air is fresh, the weather seems to cooperate more often than not, and afternoon naps are so restorative, you don't realize how much you've needed them. Within minutes of arriving, your worries and troubles just melt away.
