Great family location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the winter with our group of 6 when we went downhill skiing at Nubs Nob. Enjoyed using the well-equipped kitchen, eating and playing games at the large table, and the warmth of the fireplace. The two full baths and multiple beds were a bonus for us and our kids. Dorothy (the owner) made sure everything was very clean and all our questions were answered. It's a peaceful and lovely setting, and we enjoyed eating at the Iron Pig Smokehouse in Gaylord, too.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...we had 5 people and 2 dogs and there was plenty of room. The house was very clean and the owners couldn't have been nicer...they asked us if there was anything they could do for us or if we needed anything and were very accommodating. The view of the lake is awesome and it is a quiet lake yet you can rent a pontoon or fish and it is very enjoyable. It was a great week and we are looking forward to next year, which we already booked. I would recommend this house, you can't go wrong.

Great Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay here with 9 adults and a small dog. The place could sleep at least 16 if 4 or 5 are kids. In the 70's we had our first family cottage vacation in Ontario where we learned to play a game called "aggravation" using cards instead of dice. We have played as a family ever since. My dad chose this cottage to leave his hand made 6 player board with marbles and cards. That's how special he felt the place to be. We did have some rain, but we made it out on the lake every day, and we had great bonfires most nights. Wonderful furnishings in the great-room, and a large screen T.V. just like we have at home. We suggest you choose this one.

Family time

  • 3 of 5

We were in much need if a quiet getaway for our family of 6. Kids ages 14,13,10 and 9. This place was all that we needed. It was roomy, well stocked and very comfortable. We loved the big deck. My kids fished, swam in both the lake and community pool and had a blast. It was great that our dog could come too. We would absolutely rent this cottage again!

Fall Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us (three couples) and 3 small dogs. The house was perfect for our fall golf get-away. The only thing that was not perfect was the weather. It was cold to cool and mostly cloudy and damp - unusual for that time of year. But it did not deter us. In fact, it made us appreciate the fireplace more than we might have otherwise. The house was so roomy. We never felt cramped. We really appreciated the large dining table which comfortably seated all of us. The house is near many wonderful golf courses and is a reasonable drive to both Petosky and Traverse City. We enjoyed visiting them both. The town of Gaylord is quite charming. We highly recommend the Sugar Bowl Restaurant in town and the Chocolate Haus next door to it! All of us said we would gladly come back.
