About the property

4 Bedroom - 4 Bathroom Lakefront Home

Magnificent Lakefront Retreat set on private, heavily wooded 2 acres with 200 feet of frontage on "all sports" Lake 27. Our house is located less than 1 mile from the Gaylord Country Club and 3 miles from Meijer. In 15 minutes, you can be at Boyne Mountain, Otsego Club or TreeTops. Mackinac Island, Traverse City & Petoskey/Charlevoix are all less than 1 hour away.

The views of the lake are Gorgeous. The warm, clear water and beautiful, sandy beach make great swimming for all ages. Your family can enjoy using the Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks, Canoe, Trampoline Raft, etc. The lake side patio has electric and is set up with lounge chairs, picnic table and grill. The large fire pit is great for star viewing, smore making, and story telling.

In the 112 acre lake you will find walleye, pike, bass, and sunfish. During the winter months enjoy snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and snow shoeing.

The house is 2800 square feet and features 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms for spreading out the crew. Our new kitchen with new appliances and new gas grill make cooking in a joy.

Wood burning fire place in the living room, HD TV with Netflix available in living room, and lower level rec room with TV, fridge, pool table, ping pong table, HD TV, and bar with CD library. Master Bedroom has HD TV. There is an attached oversized two car garage. My cell phone is 248.310.8948 and my email is

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful lakefront setting. Great outdoor amenities. Enjoyed the peaceful setting, the canoe and the firepit. Enjoyed the bar and pool table area. The kitchen was great. Well supplied.

We found Gaylord to be a good central location for exploring northern Michigan.

Beautiful home on scenic property

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are outstanding. A nice, rolling backyard has a beautiful fire pit and 2 plateaus that are great for playing games.

The backyard leads to a pristine, sandy beach that’s graded nicely into a sandy-bottom lake. The lake is roughly 125-150 acres. It may be a little small for some people, but it was perfect for us. Our party has 8 adults and 9 children. The lake was big enough for tubing, but small enough to get back quickly if any grandkids needed a nap.

The home lists 15 as the maximum # of occupants. That’s a good number.

Accommodations are modern. Joe provides plenty of wood and is highly responsive.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a lot of places over the years for our mushroom hunting trip and this place was the best by far. Clean, comfortable, and well-furnished! We'll be staying there next year if it's available.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from VRBO numerous times and this house was one of the best appointed places to stay. Very clean, spacious and a responsive owner. I would highly recommend for all seasons but summer would be preferable with lake access and many toys. It is very close to Boyne Mountain so for those winter ski folks it would also be great. My friends of many years and I enjoyed spending time in this beautiful part of Michigan. (Thanks Joe for your patience in directing us to the "hidden drive"!!!) October 2017

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This group of 2 adults and 2 kids (10 & 13) had a great time playing on beach. We had 1 all day rain but inside activities offered pool table and games. The cleanliness of the home is A+ and the owner a great guy!

I would book here again in a heartbeat!
