Beautiful. Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife's father died suddenly in Gaylord on a Sunday. As such, we needed accommodations almost immediately for 8 adults and 2 children as family was flying in from all over the US. On a whim, I decided to try HomeAway and found Jerry's house. I called Jerry on Monday and he couldn't have been more accommodating. He set everything up and it was all incredibly easy. And to boot, it was cheaper than a hotel!

On to the house. The home is close to downtown Gaylord but sits overlooking a beautiful lake. To have the whole family in one house in such a beautiful setting made us feel at home. For my wife and her siblings, Jerry's hospitality and home made all the difference. Went from potentially staying in separate rooms at a nondescript Hampton Inn to everyone sharing laughs and tears in a gorgeous house.

So if you're looking for an amazing place to stay in Gaylord, look no further. Hopefully you'll have the same kind of experience we did.
