Winter Fun in Gaylord

January 6, 2015

The cottage was as represented. It was very well stocked with everything you could want. The décor was great and well maintained. The hot tub was so nice after a day out in the cold enjoying the winter wonderland. I rent every year around New Year's Eve and this is by far our favorite. You won't be disappointed. It is an excellent value and Carol is great to work with, we had a blast. There were 2 couples and our high school daughter with her friends, everyone was very comfortable and there was plenty of room.

What a wonderful place! Thank you Carol! The hot tub was great! Great location right outside the patio door with great views of the trees, stars and wildlife. We seen deer in the early morning and early evening. 25 feet from the hot tub! Golf was fantastic! Perfect weather! The house was very comfortable with all the amenities. Thank you again Carol and we look forward to many rentals in the future!

Everything You Would Want In A Vacation Home

September 17, 2013

Two couples looking for a clean comfortable place to stay & have a visit, but found so much more with this vacation home. Tastefully decorated, clean, cozy home stocked with everything you might want for a relaxing stay. We enjoyed that the area golf courses are all very close, as is the shops , entertainment and restaurants. We also enjoyed watching 4 deer feeding in the back yard just beyond the hot tub. Carol was very pleasant & professional to deal with, and we will be renting this home from her for our golf vacation next year. Thanks, Len

Great Place

September 2, 2013

This is a beautiful, tastefully decorated home fully equipped with everything you will need. It is nestled in a woodsy setting with plenty of wildlife around and a lot of privacy. Full deck with plenty of seating for a few or whole family. A ten minute drive to downtown Gaylord, nice restaurants nearby and a full service lake (Otsego). Great place to stay and reasonably priced. Not more than a 20 minute drive to most of the area golf courses. You won't be disappointed.

My girlfriends and I had a lovely time here. It was so clean and cozy (we've had issues at other rentals), comfortable and convenient. It was so close to Gaylord for entertainment but we didn't feel close to town!

Great Family Vacation House

April 8, 2013

Our family had a great time at the Vacation House. We loved the secluded location in the woods, the hot tub, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The owner was also very helpful when we had an issue with the cable TV. We would recommend this house, and would love to return again!

Owner's reply:
