Large Otsego Lake Beach-Front Home
About Randy Charboneau
My brother and I decided to purchase this home so we could continue to enjoy some of our summers on Otsego Lake. We are both originally from here and have had many summers of boating and fishing. Rance and his family still live here and I live in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Randy Charboneau purchased this House in 2016
Why Randy Charboneau chose Gaylord
My wife and I and our family vacation here every summer to visit family and friends that still are in Gaylord. For the past several years we've rented this house and have always enjoyed the lake and the Arbutus Beach community. When it came up for sale we decided to buy the home. We will be coming a lot more often to not only enjoy some of the summer days, but maybe some of the other seasons as well.
What makes this House unique
What we enjoyed about this home was how much room there is for family and friends to stay. 3 queen beds, 2 single beds and 2 pull out couches. Everything was there plus we could step off the porch right onto the sandy beach. Besides the state park, this small beach front community has some of the best sand on the lake. The deepest part of the lake is right off the dock which also lends itself to some great fishing.

Great Location! Great Beach!
Loved this place, it was exactly what we needed. Kids loved the beach right out the front door and the sandy bottom. Kayaks were great and the lake was amazing! Thanks for sharing your home with us!!
Thanks Trevor...we look forward to seeing you again!
Great home and even more perfect beach. My 18 month, 3 and 6 year old grandchildren played on the beach and swam in water only knee high up to end of dock. The paddle board and kayak provided were great fun! The deck was beautiful and enjoyed by all. We didn’t need to bring anything—beach chairs, toys, towels, kitchen essentials all provided. We are looking forward to our next year visit.
Thanks for the review. We look forward to seeing you in 2020. Look for some more improvements!
Three generations of our family enjoyed a wonderful week at this well equipped cottage. The beautiful beach was great for waterskiing and tubing as well as soaking up the sun and later in the evenings for cookouts and campfires. We definitely plan to return next year. Many thanks for a great stay. Linda
Thanks for the great review Linda...looking forward to seeing you next year. Randy and Rance
Great Beach Vacation!
The cottage was roomy, clean, and located right on the beach. We loved making s’mores in the fire pit provided and watching fireworks over the lake from the front deck. Thank you for such great hospitality!
Glad to hear you all enjoyed our cottage. We hope you come back soon!
The beach was beautiful and perfect for our little kids. The sand was great and the water was so clear. The cabin was clean and everything we needed was there for our use. I would highly recommend this property.
Thanks for the kind review. Hope to have you all back soon!
Fantastic family vacation spot !!
We enjoyed our family getaway for 4 nights with 7 adults and 4 small children at this great spot. The house was very clean upon arrival. My favorite thing about the house was the beautiful new deck It is very large and has a great speaker system that we enjoyed. The living furniture is very nice and the beach and water level was perfect for the 2-4 year olds. They loved the sand area There is a hose around the house but a suggestion would be to have a little wood or cement area with a hose right before you go up onto the deck so not to track so much sand up there. They have lots of sand toys, a nice paddle board and fishing poles that were nice to use We would recommend this beach house to anyone. Thank you to owners for sharing your house with our family!
