About the property

Comfortable 3 BR 1½ BA Lakefront Home

Relax in the comfort of this all season, lakefront vacation home. This 3-Bedroom, 1½-Bath home accomodates 6 adults with all of the amenities of home. Queen beds in all 3 bedrooms. The property is located on a large wooded lot with a wrap-around deck overlooking 200 feet of shoreline on Lake Arrowhead.Spring / Summer- Morel mushroom hunting, nature walks, biking, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking and golf. Gaylord is known as the 'Golf Mecca of the Midwest.' The area features over 20 world class courses. Most are less than 30 minutes away. Fall / Winter- Beautiful fall colors, downhill and cross county skiing and snowmobiling. Gaylord is centrally located inside Michigan's 'Snowbelt', receiving abundant snowfall each winter. Gaylord's trail system connects thousands of miles of marked and groomed trails.

Family Activities-: Keeping the kids happy can make or break a vacation, but when visiting Otsego County, boredom is never a consideration. When the weather won't cooperate or the little ones have just plain run out of things to do, that's when it's time to venture out and discover the many attractions that can put smiles back on their faces. The 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. Adjacent to the Sportsplex is the Energy Outlet, a quaint park filled with slides, swings and climbing equipment, all designed to delight and distract the kids from any thoughts of boredom. 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.

and more family activities...: At Call of the Wild, fun and learning go hand in hand, and it's almost a sure thing that kids want to go back again and again. After touring the outdoors, vistors can step outside the museum to ride on a go-kart or play a round of miniature golf. Checking out the wildlife museum is great fun, but to catch a glimpse of the real thing, a stop at the elk-viewing area at the end of Grandview Boulevard (just east across South Otsego Ave. from Wiscousin St) will afford you a close-up view of North Michigan wildlife. If you still have energy after all that, give some through to seeing a movie at Gaylord Cinema on M-32 West, which shows several different features daily.

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for everyone. 3 bedrooms, but also an extra bed in the sitting room and a pullout couch. Easily sleeps 8 or more. Nice large yard area for pets. The kids caught plenty of fish off the dock. Sandy beach; canoe and paddle boats, fire pit - it was a wonderful week! Thanks Keith!!!

Great Owner, Great Property and Very Nice Rental

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go up north because our son and his wife came in from the middle east and we wanted to have a little family reunion getaway. I had called a ton of places and no-one that had availability would do less than a week and we only needed 3 day stay. When I contacted Mitch the owner he was very accommodating and agreed to the 3 day stay on very short notice of less than a week. We were elated and felt his pet friendly and rental rate was incredibly reasonable versus some of the insane prices I had been quoted for a lot less house. He also allows you to use all his non-motorized boats at no additional charge. Once we arrived we fell in love with the corner end of the road lot, wrap around porch, quaint comfy warm cabin feel inside the home, the cleanliness of the home, and the home was well stocked with all the comforts of home. The area was beautiful, the lake was very clear and warm, the community pool was definitely an added bonus. The only thing is that the beds could be a bit more comfortable but fine for a short term stay. The WIFI and satellite was a nice touch. Also the maintenance man Dan was very friendly, accommodating, and even brought his pontoon boat over to take us for a boat ride. We absolutely plan to return to the Green Cabin annually for our family get togethers. Thank you again Mitch and Dan for making our trip so wonderful and memorable.

Long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a short up north getaway, everything was here that we needed! Loved it! The beds could be a little more comfy but everything else was perfect! Our dogs even loved it! The pool was an added bonus!

My boyfriend proposed on the paddle boat out in the lake! It was perfect!

Lakefront vacation home w/large yard and firepit

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely time and enjoyed the stay. The house and the yard and the firepit as well as the beach with the peddle boat and row boat was everything we needed. The house was well stocked with toilet paper and paper towels. The towels and sheets were well stocked. The beds were comfortable and provided a good nights sleep. The tv with the dish service was well received by the children. We recommend this property as a great vacation.
