With a unique location on the 45 parallel, the Alpine Village of Gaylord is truly Northern Michigan's heart. Whether planning to travel to Gaylord for the first visit or your 31st, we know that you will be back again and again. Gaylord is unique in its centrality - only minutes from everything you could hope for in the north and things you might not expect either, like top-notch shopping, galleries, arts, music festivals & wireless internet access you can use while relaxing on one of the park benches downtown or in the neighborhood where this chalet is located.

Golf

With 21 golf courses which include world-class resorts and championship golf designed by some of America's top golf course designers, the Gaylord area is your dream golf destination.

Hiking

Experience all that is Northern Michigan along one of the many trails in Otsego County used for hiking, biking, x-country skiing and snowshoeing. The area abounds with pathways for outdoor enthusiasts of every skill and age level, and all are free to use with no trail passes required.

Ski & Snowshoe

In Gaylord you'll find the gently sloping terrain, heavily wooded forests and deep annual snowfall ideal for Nordic skiing. It is also not uncommon to see plentiful wildlife out on the trail. Our facilities range from rustic and scenic at the Pigeon River State Forest, to elegant and expertly groomed.

Snowmobile

Located in the center of Northern Lower Michigan's Snow Belt, the Gaylord area averages over 180 inches of the white stuff annually. Surrounded by rolling hills, thousand of acres of unspoiled forests and numerous winter activities, Gaylord is quickly emerging as a preferred winter destination.

Elk Viewing

Beautiful home on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Third time renting from Dorene and it will not be the last! Every stay at one of her properties has been fantastic! This house has everything you need to have a perfect vacation or getaway. The hot tub, access to the pool, pool table and the water at your doorway make it easy to find things to do without having to go anywhere! But, if you need to make a quick grocery trip, Meijer and Walmart are a short drive away. The fishing from the dock was great! We had a fish fry of bass and bluegill from just a few hours at the dock. It was a perfect week! Jake (11 month old golden retriever) thought it was the best place ever! He also got to swim for the first time here!! Thank you Dorene for everything!
