Frequently Asked Questions

Q: We are bicycling enthusiasts!!?
A: The trailhead of the Northern Michigan hiking-biking trail is about 15 minutes away..located near the county fairgrounds in Gaylord. This packed-surface trail wanders North through the pastures and woodlands all the way to Mackinaw City, if yiu wish. Total of 62 miles it goes from Gaylord, through Wolverine, Indian River, Topanabee, Cheboygan and then to the Mackinac Straits Bridge. This is one of the great scenic bike routes of the Midwest! For the casual rider there are staging areas anywhere from 12 to 20 miles apart, in the various little towns and villages..just park your chase vehicle, bike up 6 or 7 miles, then back to your car or RV. Serious riders can click off 20 or 30 miles, stopping at lakeside, in a village center, at an old RR bridge to watch kayakers drift by, take a short break for lunch or ice cream and then speed on. Great fun for all ages, all skill levels.
Q: So what is special here?
A: The chalet is located within a private "recreational/retirement" community of about 9,000 acres..a mix of common property and residential properties. It includes several quiet, non-motor lakes, two sand beaches, an indoor (all-season) swimming pool facility. There is an 18 hole golf course with Pro shop, an on-site restaurant, riding stables and internal trails that access the hundreds of miles of the Northern Michigan ORV Trail Network for those 4-wheel and dirt bike enthusiasts and snowmobiles in the winter season.
Q: What about golfers?
A: An 18 hole golf course in the community!! Lakes of the North is located in the center of the Michigan-Up-North Golf Mecca with more than 24 courses within a 40 minute drive...many within 15 minutes of the chalet.
Great golfing for every skill level. Most courses by Nationally recognized Pros and course designers. And some of the most competitive green fees in the State.
Q: How's the fishing?
A: Many great fishing lakes within 30 minute drive: Burt Lake, Mullet Lake both on the Indian River Chain of Lakes. Lake Bellaire to Clam Lake to Lake Skegemog to Elk and Torch Lakes is another chain of lakes that yeild great fishing. For the really big ones you can access Lake Michigan at Petoskey just 40 minutes North. For fly fishing there's the Ausable, Sturgeon, Black and Manistee Rivers
Q: Is it close to RV trails?
A: There is easy access to the several hundred miles of the Up North RV Trail Network. Several connecting trails run right thru the Lakes of North Community. One is right behind and in sight of the cabin. The attached garage provides storage for your 4 wheelers, canoes, all your summmertime tgoys. toys.
Q: What about the new swimming/water sports facilityy.?
A: The Brand New, $2 million dollar indoor water recreation facility is just about to open. This should keep everybody happy on those rare rainy days. Lap Pool, Swimming pool, kiddie area, water slide, whirlpool and more. Club house area with game room, Wi-Fi , excercise room, dressing room.
But don't forget Lake Harold with it's picnic area, playground, sand beach , paddle boat and canoe rental available. Dock for fishing, swimming float for the kids. And Pencil lake at the far end of the Community, for fishing and swimming. Boat/ canoe rental here also.
