activities and attractions in Gaylord Michigan

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.

Exceptional Rental! Beautiful Landscape! Attentive Owners!! Very Pleased!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came across this rental online. We love northern Michigan and wanted to get away for our 8 year wedding anniversary. We were excited when we came across this place. It had everything we were looking for. During our stay we got to catch a glimpse of the remaining fall colors. The landscape was beautiful! The amenities within the chalet were impeccable! We absolutely loved the hot tub on the deck outside. We had amazing weather. It was such a relaxing weekend. We will definitely be staying again. There truly is something for everyone. Lots of trails close by. The full basement would be perfect for children!! I could see it being very popular with multi-family get togethers year round!!

My six gal pals and I really enjoyed our stay. The house was lovely; the area was absolutely beautiful!!! We walked around both lakes in the gorgeous weather set in the vivid backdrop of changing leaves. It was wonderful! We spent hours in the hot tub, chatted over food, drinks and games, and enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake and nature. This is a fantastic place to unplug and spend restful, quality time with those you love.

Fall Color Weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying at Little Bear Hideaway, and we pleasently surprised. The location was great for enjoying fall colors, and the beautiful cabin was conviently located to many trails for walking the woods. Only a short drive to Gaylord.
The cabin itself is fully stocked with all the necessities need for a short or long term stay, and everything needed for a comfortable trip. A very clean and roomy place. We will diffenetly rent again. Thank you for a perfect weekend!

Owner's Response: These guests are 100% correct and this house is set up strictly for vacationers as home has more amenities than most people's home they live in! This is what I hear all the time. Owners pay attention to detail and are constantly updating home to make it more comfortable and this home is one of the most popular rentals in Gaylord, no doubt. This is one of 7 homes with
outdoor hot tubs centrally located in vacationland.....compare with other rentals and everyone
always comes back to my listing....most wait too long though looking at others and miss their opportunity because they wait too long....early bird gets the worm!!!! Keep that in mind when
trying to find your most ideal rental but this home books up quick....especially summertime...
walking distance to pool, pontoon rental available for cruising the all sports lake across the road and golf cart rental for cruising around the neighborhood for more adventures....visit the many
parks around the lake and peninsula! Many adventures await you!

Clean, very nice cottage, all the ammenities

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Little Bear this August.

The lake:
Nice no wake lake. Kids enjoyed use of the paddle boat daily and routinely saw small turtles and fish. This side of the lake contains less lake growth on the bottom. Shallow lake.

The house:
Stocked with everything you need (pots, pans, vacum, ...). Plenty of towels to shower with. The furnishings are nicely done and the furniture is not broken down or old looking which is common with many rentals. The bathrooms are brand new. Nicely tiled and nothing generic about them. Very clean.

There is 2 floor fans and a ceiling fan in the upstairs bedroom. The sun comes in the Western facing windows so it can get warm in the LR. Might bring a small turbo fan (we did) for a BR or just use one of the floor fans if you get 80 degree days. Nights are cool so the house is quite comfy.

Other features:
The association property (pool w/restrooms, picnic pavillion, beach, and playground, including basketball court) is 40 sec away by car at 10mph.

There is ORV trails readily accessible about 100' from the cottage in multiple directions. If you ATV or Snowmobile, this place accomodates in spades.

There is a house right next door, 20', but on the other side, he's over there 100' or so and was not there when we stayed. Not a lot of houses on the lake so, you kinda have the lake to yourself.

It is a straight shot on the main road out of the association from the cottage. Then left (to head toward Gaylord) or right (toward Waters and Grayling).

Dorene is quite accessible via phone, text, or email, promptly responding.

Had a wonderful, relaxing week with my family. Place was lovely, very clean and came with all that you will need (*except a kettle). If swimming in the lake isn't for you, the heated outdoor pool is a very short walk away. About a 10 minute drive to "downtown" Gaylord. Really enjoyed it
