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

The Pigeon River State Forest’s expansive 105,000 acres with the Midwest’s only free ranging elk herd offers a unique wilderness experience that is just a short drive from downtown Gaylord. The Department of Natural Resources maintains this excellent elk habitat through careful forest and wildlife management.

Perfect winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

Came up for a winter weekend snowmobile trip. Place was perfect for what we needed it for. Updated bathrooms and kitchen. Kitchen had ample dishes, glasses, knives etc. hot tub was a bonus after the day on the trail. Great location! Close to downtown Gaylord and the snowmobile trails. We’d 100% rent this place again.

Clean, Comfortable, and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin with some friends of ours for the weekend. The cabin was very clean and had every amenity we could’ve ever asked for: well-stocked kitchen and bathrooms, comfortable beds with extra linens in the closets, TV’s in the bedrooms, washer and dryer in the nicely-finished basement, hot tub, etc. Aside from using the hot tub, we really didn’t go outside much because it was snowy and cold, but I did look around in the backyard and it was great back there too: boats to use ( I believe there were two kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboat), a swing that overlooks the lake, a fire pit, etc. We highly recommend this cabin and we will be returning! Thank you Dorene!

Wonderful Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house we stayed in!! Beautiful views, relaxing accommodations, who could ask for more?!?

We pretty much used everything, from the hot tub in the mornings and evenings to the fire pit on Saturday night to the paddle boat and kayaks. Full service house!! Everything that we needed was there.

Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven!

Definite recommendation here!!
