            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.

Surrounded by rolling hills, thousand of acres of unspoiled forests and numerous winter activities, Gaylord is quickly emerging as a preferred winter destination.

Amazing hideaway 10/10

Review submitted: January 14, 2014   Date of arrival: December 12, 2013

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at bears den for a long weekend in mid december 2013. What can i say, it was perfect. the location was wonderful, there was a lot of snow so we enjoyed walking around the lake and surrounding areas.

Everything is provided at bears den, the hot tub was wonderful in the snow and the log stove.

We used bears den as a base to go skiing and visit some brewerys in surrounding areas. great base to enjoy Michigan. I would 100% reccomend this place and the ownders we wonderful and accomadating.

I will be returning in the summer to enjoy the lake and the sunshine.

Thanks again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: I'm glad these guests had a wonderful stay as everyone absolutely loves this home. I get repeat guests there all the time, some repeat guests have already stayed at least 5 separate occasions.
All my homes are situated in Gaylord, Vacationland with cottages also in
Topinabee, MI, another prime vacationland.
Homes are all in areas which spell OUT V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!
Come and stay and play at the Bear's Den, spring, summer, fall and winter.
Something to do during all seasons! Come experience true tranquility!

Lots to do here and plenty of room to do it!!

Review submitted: June 23, 2013   Date of arrival: May 24, 2013

This was our first trip to Bears Den, there were 2 adults and 5 teenagers! We practically had to drag the kids away from cabin to go into town!! Before our trip was over we were already planning our next trip for October! Movies to watch, lake, hot tub beautiful decor and very very clean! You wont regret your time here. Thanks for such a nice place to relax on a long weekend.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Too funny but heard this over and over again about dragging kids/teenagers/dogs, etc. from the cottage to go anywhere. We try and
set up a vacation home strictly for the vacationer and cover
all angles for all ages...come and check out The Bear's Den.....bring the
grandkids to catch their very first fish and then, they'll be standing up sleeping from the excitement....heard that before too!
