Fun filled week!
We made it to the Petosky area for a day trip one day, then Mackinac another day, and Otsego State Lake another. This property was minutes from Pencil lake, which allowed to swim and fish easily. The pool house was very accommodating of my party of 12, we had to pay but it was an awesome deal and the kids loved it!
This large home filled my entire families needs, and we cooked a ton of meals there.
Great place, great house, great time!
Thank you Matt Swisher for your hospitality. We had such a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and everything was perfect. More than enough amenities were provided and the Lakes of the North community was awesome! We had a great time at the pool and the local snowmobile riding and trail system was great. We drove to Boyne Mt for a day of skiing/snowboarding and also to Schuss Mt for a day of skiing/snowboarding. This location was excellent. I can't say enough good things about it! Thank you Matt!
Great place for a family gathering!
We had a great time at this house in Gaylord! The house is nestled in the hardwoods and the Fall colors were beautiful. There was plenty of room for our family. The only thing I would change is the service for television. There are only about 6 channels and they didn't come in most of the time. Other than that, it was perfect for us!
Great place to stay!
We had a large group. 13 total, 9 kids and 4 adults. This house accommodated us all very well. Very clean and home feeling. Loved the setting in the woods. We were able to keep up on our laundry, full kitchen to prepare breakfast each day. We were there to tour Mackinaw and the UP so didn't spend a ton of time there. We would definitely stay there again. Matt was very accommodating for a late check-in and a late check-out. I would recommend this home to others for sure.
Wonderful weekend in Gaylord!
We rented this property for our parents 50th wedding anniversary weekend trip. There were 11 of us and the house had plenty of space for all three families to spread out and feel comfortable. The house is well-equipped and very clean. We used the Lakes of the North clubhouse one day and the kids enjoyed swimming and we all had fun playing pickleball outdoors. Also, it's only about a 30 minute drive to Petoskey and we enjoyed a day out there as well hunting for Petoskey rocks and walking through downtown Petoskey. The location is beautiful and the owner is responsive and friendly. Great weekend, lots of lasting memories.
Our family/friends stayed here for a snowmobile weekend. The house was located in a great community for snowmobiling and winter activities. Although the kitchen could use a few more basic items for cooking, the house was well maintained and clean and we had no issues. However, one of the main reasons we booked this particular house was for the community pool, which is located within the subdivision. It was a great option to have for the children during the day but we were extremely disappointed when we arrived and found out from the clubhouse staff that we would have to pay an extra fee each time we used the facilities and couldn't purchase a daily or weekend pass but each visit to the clubhouse was a seperate cost. Owner was very nice to us about a early check in and late check out, which was very helpful with a large group and kids. Only wish we knew more about those hidden pool house fees.
Lakes of the North also allows ORV, snowmobiling, and golf carts on the roads and has trails running all through the neighborhood. Trail 4 runs through the property at multiple locations.
