About Kent Filsinger
I have been coming up to Sugar Springs since my parents purchased the property in 1976. I road through the lake in a 4 wheel jeep before it was filled with water. I used to own a remodeling business and now my hobby is to continually improve the property for my family and our guests.
Kent Filsinger purchased this Cottage in 1976
Why Kent Filsinger chose Gladwin County
I have spent 30 years improving the cottage to make your stay relaxing and memorable. Has all the amenities of a house but has the feel of a cottage with lots of natural wood and fishing and boating decor.
What makes this Cottage unique
Almost every room has a view of the water. The gardens have been a long term on going love affair. Sitting on the garden swing or hammock totally relaxes me. Seeing the sunrise from the master bedroom always puts me in the right state of mind to start the day.

Beautiful cottage in a quiet and comfortable setting.
Excellent experience! This is the first time I have booked a vacation online and I have to say there will be many more! The owner was friendly and helpful, and made this whole experience completely fun and wonderful! This cottage is a true "Staycation"! Take your food and clothes and just have fun! I booked for the first week in April and thanks to the Michigan weather there was still snow on the ground and a nip in the air. The weather didn't matter because we still enjoyed being in this quiet relaxing wonderland! Definitely booking again!
Thank you and the best compliment is when a guest comes back. Kent
Enjoyed our time at the Barn! Some nice improvements without a doubt. The pool table and couch should be next on the list.
Comfortable winter stay
We had a great time at the Barn for New Year's Eve. It was warm by the fire, beautiful on the frozen lake and the owner was very welcoming and kind! The area was a bit sleepy in the winter and that worked great for us having a relaxing weekend.
Thank you for the your response. We try to make the property better for each visit. Kent
We had one last beautiful week-end in October. The area was very peaceful and the 'Barn' is located on lake lancer perfectly, with 2 nice decks to take it all in...,Bald eagles, a beautiful sunrise and a few card games too! 8 of us were very comfortable with our accommodations.
It was great to not have to pack anything but our food & clothing .
Thanks for everything! We will make it a point to return!

Thank you for the wonderful review. A guest wanting to come back is best complement. Kent
As always we had a great time at The Barn on Lake Lancer. This a great location as it is only 1:45 from Lansing. We saw lots of wildlife (loons, deer, ducks and on two occasions a bald eagle). We did lots of fishing, kayaking, boating (rented pontoon from Secord Marina) and making s'mores around the campfire. All week we kept hearing from our kids what a great location and how much they enjoy staying here. I couldn't agree more. This was our third time here for our family vacation and we'll be back again in the future. Thanks Kent.
Thank you for the very nice review. The biggest complement I get is when a guest comes back. Thanks Kent
