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.

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.

Great view, beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very well maintained. The decorations are so cute and entertaining, it really feels like a bear's den. Everything you need is there, we did a lot of cooking while at Bear's den and found the kitchen to be adequately stocked with all of the basics. The view from the hot tub in the winter is like a post card, my only complaint is that the neighbors lights were so bright it kind of ruined the star gazing (can't control your neighbors). The subdivision was quiet and all of the roads were very well maintained, they even plowed a couple parking spots for us, which I'm not sure was arranged in advance. The beds are super comfortable, we had a great time hanging out on the lower level playing pool and enjoying the unique bar. Overall it is truly is a great cottage. Dorene is just amazing to work with, I have rented from her several times and she is always accommodating and available should any problems arise. I highly recommend her and her properties, if you rent from her you are guaranteed a good experience.

Owner's Response: I'm thrilled that these repeat guests enjoy my homes and I welcome anyone who wants to experience what the Great North has to offer. We like to update our homes and add furnishings to give the guest the Up North feeling quite unique compared to other plain rental homes. The Bear's Den will stand out.

great girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place for a quiet getaway! The house is very open and spacious!

The deck has an amazaing view and the hot tub just added that extra flare.

We went into Gaylord to do some shopping and the drive was only 15 minutes, maybe.

The colors were beautiful too!

The TV was only on maybe 2 hours the whole week.

Great place. Loved our stay. We were never bored and the fishing was a blast. Nice neighborhood with pretty good amenities. Parking was the only tough thing but we managed very well. Would definately rent again!

Owner's Response: You definately will not get bored at the Bear's Den as everyone loves staying at this home. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet and you can walk to the Association Pool and enjoy the park area w/pavilion. There actually is plenty of room to Park for 3 vehicles but when you add two motor boats kept on trailers with 3 pickups all kept in driveway at the same time can be quite challenging for any lakefront home but yes, they did manage and did a good job at it!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Bear's Den. The house was clean and comfortable with a great view of the lake. We enjoyed the kayaks, paddle boat and row boat - felt as if the lake was our own. We never saw anyone else on it! It was very peaceful and relaxing to spend time on the water and dock. The hot tub was an added bonus after a day of traveling and sightseeing. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and I loved that the light switches were labeled! Very nice. Dorene was very prompt to reply to emails and made the entire process a breeze. We hope to return someday.
