vacation rental description

Our family cottage is a single level ranch style layout with (4) bedrooms (three with queen beds and the forth has two twins, a double and a bunk bed; this "bunk room" is great for kids). Four couches offer extra sleeping space in the living room and porch if needed. Two full baths (both with showers). The large living room has a cathedral ceiling and knotty pine walls, very popular and still plentiful in northern Michigan. A large stone fireplace (gas) with a remote control. A 42” plasma TV with cable is in the living room, and each bedroom has a smaller TV. Wireless high speed internet service is furnished. The dining room table seats eight easily with extra tables in the living room and the glassed-in porch. A modern well equipped kitchen (spices included) helps make meals and entertaining a breeze. Laundry room offers a washer and dryer on site. Outside towards the lake you will find a relaxing 3 person swing, a 25' x 25' brick paved patio area, two BBQ grills, picnic table, portable fire pit and comfortable wrought-iron patio furniture, including 10 chairs and two additional round tables. An American flag flying high overlooks an awesome beach and swimming area. The beach is furnished with additional chairs for sunning. The sandy, rock-free swim area tapers gently from shore to the deeper water. Our private dock runs full length from the patio, across the sand, to the lake, with 80' extending out on the water. Room for docking a boat (up to ~24') or other water toys. This side of the lake usually receives a breeze, so few bugs are ever present. The wind coming through the trees can truly be glorious, and the sunsets are often breathtaking, just like in the movies!

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage

We consider Otsego Lake as a very friendly FAMILY oriented lake. It’s nearly six miles long with great fishing, sailing, swimming, skiing, boating and relaxing. It has a nearby state park and boat launch, and a marina for boat gas and repairs. Live bait is available nearby. A terrific sandy beach and dock are at your disposal. The swimming area is rock-free, and tapers gradually from shallow to deep for kids and grownups alike. We have an outdoor swing, plenty of patio furniture, a large charcoal BBQ (and also a new gas grill) to make the lakefront vista even more enjoyable. Our vacation cottage is within a block of a little convenience store (Al's Market) and our family would often take a walk for candy or ice cream (adult beverages and pizza also available). Snowmobile rentals and dealerships with all four major brands are close by. The groomed state snowmobile trail system runs right along the east side of the lake, connecting you to statewide system, just 60 seconds from our cottage. Trips to Grayling, Lewiston, Indian River, East Jordan and beyond are common from our cottage, with gas stations only a few minutes away. Winter draws many onto Otsego Lake itself for ice fishing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. There is even a serious snow sledding hill a few miles away used by kids and adult thrill-seekers! The Gaylord area is known as the "Golf Mecca". Nearly 30 golf courses, some with legendary architects, are within 5 to 30 minutes of our cottage. Only five minutes to Marsh Ridge, The Loon, Michaywe for golf, and within ten minutes to Treetops and Otsego Club resorts, for both golf and skiing. And as little as 30 minutes to Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands, Nubs Nob and many other resorts. Less than an hour to Petosky, Harbor Springs and Mackinaw Island ferry. Other terrific lakes, including Charlevoix, Burt, Mullet, Torch and Walloon are within an hour drive for a day trip. All without the constraints of a motel, and with all the comforts of home!
