Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin for 3 nights to do some snowmobiling. We were completely satisfied from the moment we arrived to the owner, Ken, waiting on us to let us into the warm and cozy cabin. He was very helpful in sharing local information with us. The cabin is an older building but it is superbly clean and well maintained! We loved it! We would definitely stay here again if we are wanting to stay in the Gaylord area.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a last minute family vacation before school started & we were extremely lucky to have found this place. It is very clean and offers virtually everything you need in a home away from home. The pictures are not deceiving and gives you a pretty good idea what you are going to get. We will definitely be returning in the upcoming summers!
