Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We enjoyed the private lot and sandy shore. The house is clean and well maintained. The lake is great and we found fun places for the kids to play in the sandy water around the lake. Being close to downtown Gaylord was very convenient. Found lots of things to do in Gaylord and Petoskey during rainy days.

Great home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Nice spot to enjoy a perfect week "up north" at the lake. The house included everything we needed and was very clean and well maintained. The private tree-lined yard was big and allowed plenty of privacy from the neighbors. Other places on the lake seemed to be right on top of each other. The kids were able to set up a full sized volleyball net with plenty of room to spare. Although, we did lose a volleyball in the pine trees when one of the kids decided to see how far they could kick it. No real sandy beach area to hang out but the water does get gradually deeper so it wasn't that big of a deal- no seaweed and only a few rocks. The dock was perfect to park the rented pontoon boat. The washer and dryer were a great bonus. Had great customer service with the owners- when I was having email issues, Pam was very accommodating in resending information several times. She even checked in with me after arrival to make sure everything was OK. Only one minor negative- you have to be on the other side of the lake to experience the beautiful sunsets as the house sits on the west side. Overall, a great place to stay to relax, have some great lake fun and get away from it all!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Very private, lovely view, comfortable, roomy layout of cottage ( feels like a home), lots of amenities and so clean! The only thing I could think of to improve would be a mattress upgrade in the master bedroom but we kind of expect that in a cottage. We would certainly consider going back.

Great Family Vacation! Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve never heard of Otsego Lake, and only ever really drove past Gaylord on my way to the UP, but my Wife and two sons (9 &5) were very pleased we decided to stay here this year.

The cabin is a Mobile home that has an additional mud room and dining room added on. It makes for a large cottage on a long private piece of property lined with trees and lots of grass for the kids to play on between the house and the lake. It has a 2.5 car garage that you have access to in case you have anything to store or park. The house was very clean and well maintained. It does have a window air conditioner in the dining room which worked well to keep the most of house comfortable, but didn’t really do much for the master bedroom at the far end. The supplied fans definitely helped, but an additional window air conditioner in the master bedroom would have made sleeping more comfortable.

I was really impressed with everything that was included in this well-kept rental. There was a Gas BBQ, Firewood, Dock, row boat, linens, washer/dryer, lots of kitchen utensils and paper products.

Otsego Lake was surprising large and is well suited for boating, jet skis, fishing, and swimming. The cabin didn’t have a beach since the water level seemed to be high this year. Instead the water came right up to an easily traversed small rock wall that was put in place for erosion control. We just stepped down onto the sandy lake bottom and even sat a couple chairs right into the water on the hot summer afternoon.

The dock that runs along the edge of the property was perfect to dock the pontoon boat that we rented from PSR. If you rent a boat from them, insist they give you a full tank of gas though. They only gave us a half tank and since you have to pick the boat up at the State Park at the other end of the lake, we burned up the gas pretty quick and had to cut our joy rides short to conserve fuel.

Gaylord had the Alpen Fest the week we were there which is mostly just a carnival in the middle of the street with a few arts & crafts booths. Gaylord doesn’t really have a touristy town to wander through. It does however have a Wal-Mart, Movie Theater, and a few restaurants.

Drive for an hour to Mackinaw City and check out the fort and hop a ferry to the Island. It was a good day trip and easy enough to get there and back.

Overall we had a great experience and really enjoyed the cabin. It was clean, comfortable, well stocked, and owners Pam & Mark were great and very quick to respond!
