Recent Gaylord property reviews

  • Great Week

    "We visited in August of 2013. The house was great for what we needed. As the owners will tell you do not expect a 5 star hotel but do expect plenty of room and everything you need other then food. We had a large group of people with us and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. If you rent the boat it is good for cruises and fishing, plus the row boat, the kayaks, paddle boat was great for evening fishing near the house. The lake was as blue as people say, the fishing was fair. I did catch a few good bass out of the weeds and we may have broke a record for catching the smallest fish in the lake. All in all it was a great week and we would rent there again."

  • Family Skiing & Tubing Weekend

    "Brought the entire family up to Dan's condo and it was a fabulous weekend. The condo was very neat and spacious. There were 9 of us (8 adults, 1 grandson) and we didnt even use one of the bedrooms. Nice, big flat screen TV above the fireplace with plenty of channels for your viewing pleasure. This Otsego Club condo is 5 minutes away from Treetops (extreme tubing) and 2 minutes away from downtown Gaylord. You also can ski right on site at the Otsego club. Dan is a great host and works to ensure you have a memorable visit. I highly recommend this clean, spacious condo where you can truly appreciate Northern Michigan at its finest, winter or summer! Thanks again Dan!"

  • Awesome vacation spot

    "The cottage was exactly as pictured. It was very clean and well maintained. We loved having a house on the lake with enough space for our whole family and not be crowded. We can hardly wait to plan another trip to Northern MI and this great home. Wonderful memories were made. Recommend to anyone that wants a quiet lake and a wonderful vacation."

  • Sunset Beach

    "We had a great time @ Sunset Beach this week. From the layout of the chalet to having anything on hand necessary to live here for a week... Wow, Dorene & John thought of everything! We had our 16 & 20 yr old daughters with us most of the week & they never complained of being bored! The 4th fireworks were fantastic & we never had to leave the property for the show! Only negative is the Internet & phone service were both sketchy. We had a family crises back home & our phone calls were repeatedly dropped. Everything else here was top notch! We will definitely be back! Thanks again John & Dorene, Ken, Susan, Michelle & Catherine"

Gaylord Travel Tips

Gaylord Vacation Rentals Let You Stay in the Heart of Northern Lower Michigan

Located on the 45th parallel in Northern Michigan, Gaylord is extremely convenient to area attractions and activities. Gaylord vacation rentals keep you close to shopping, dining, music festivals, and art galleries, not to mention a huge array of outdoor activities to be enjoyed year-round. Dubbed the Alpine Village, Gaylord has a unique combination of quaint small-town ambience and clean modern convenience.

Recreational Opportunities Are Never Hard to Find in Gaylord

Northeast Michigan lake houses near Gaylord are great places to stay for anyone interested in fishing. With several lakes and rivers in the area, angling and fly-fishing are among the most popular pastimes among locals and visitors alike. The Manistee and Au Sable Rivers run parallel through the area and offer fishermen of any skill or experience level the chance to make a great catch. Gaylord is also located in the center of Michigan's Snow Belt, which means there's plenty of the fluffy white stuff all around town—about 180 inches per year. So naturally snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and alpine skiing are huge recreational draws to the area during the winter months. During certain seasons, Gaylord is a hunter's paradise with terrain that yields whitetail deer, squirrels, fauna, and waterfowl.

Variety Is the Name of the Game in Gaylord

Whether you're interested in shopping, outdoor recreation, or simple old relaxation, there is a perfect kind of Gaylord lodging out there for you. The town has accommodations to suit any style or interest, from quaint, traditional cabins in the woods to modern, luxurious condos near town. There are lake houses, homes near golf courses, and cottages in between. No matter how many people you're bringing to Gaylord or what you plan to do when you get there, a perfect vacation rental awaits you.
