Lovely visit in the snowy village of Gaylord

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Ken's property. The cabin was beautiful, clean and well maintained. The location was great - remote but not to distant from anything we needed. The view from the cabin out to the frozen lake was beautiful and we enjoyed sipping our coffee and enjoying the view each morning and evening. I would highly recommend staying here!

Family of 4

  • 4 of 5

It was a very nice place. We have a 6 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. They had a lot of fun playing in the water and beach area. If you have plans of fishing I would choose a different lake. Overall the cottage was nice and clean.

Beautiful Cabins and propertie

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last yr and came back for another wonderful time! Very much enjoyed having all the kayaks & pedal boats & beautiful large beach with many chairs/lounge chairs . Cabins are supplied well and very clean!

There is a table & chairs on deck each cabin has its own Gas Barbecue grill- no need for charcoal.

Love this place -wish we could stay longer than just a weekend.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house and setting were perfect. It was very clean and quiet. The weather was perfect. The house was comfortable. The owners really take pride in their properties. The only thing we would have changed is not really under their control. There is a large population of geese in the area and they leave quite a mess on the beach and my 5 yr old had 2 leeches bite her at separate times from the lake. The strange thing is that all of us were in the lake for nearly 4 days straight (at one time 10 of us) and no one else had any incident so I'm not sure what my daughter was doing differently that attracted them to her.

Overall, I would definitely go back. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.
