Our group had a fun weekend away at Lake Louise! Everything was easy to find and the cottage was very clean. Since we are huge Spartan fans, we were so happy that the TV had Big 10 Network for sat. afternoon football!

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there for four nights with a son and two step-sons on a golfing vacation. The house was ideal for us. However, the bathroom facilities were a little sparse for four people. Moreover, the bathtub has a very slippery bottom which made it treacherous despite the hold bar that is mounted there. Also, despite what the info sheet told us, there seemed to be only one house key in the key cabinet in addition to the one in the lock box.

If we return to Gaylord for more golf sometime, I would certainly book this place again.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The lake house was perfect for our family, Hans has gone beyond expectations to provide everything you could need. The weather was rainy the all 3 days we were there, but with all the indoor activities we still had a blast. We will be back next year!! Thanks Hans!

No complaints, had just about everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time, house and amenities exceeded expectations. This is not a 5 start hotel nor does it pretend to be one, it's just someone's vacation house up North. Most of the complaints from past guests are just nit picking. Yes the coffee maker is slow, deal with it. Chairs on the beach are somewhat busted so you may want to bring your own. And we didn't catch any fish but I don't remember seeing the lake advertised as having great fishing.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Lake Louise Getaway was a great little family vacation. We stayed a week with 4 adults and 4 children and the property, amenities and house served our needs perfectly. There is no reason to be bored at a place like this, everything you need to have fun is included! The area was quiet and Gaylord is just a 15 minute drive away if you need anything. The lake didn't hold any "worthwhile" fish, but the kids had fun trying. Only minor complaint I had is that the house could use some updating and a bit of TLC... Other than that, we all did just fine with what was provided and really enjoyed our stay! Thanks Hans!

Relaxing and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The LLG was amazing. It had everything we needed. We used the kayaks and the paddleboat. We went fishing and swimming. We played pool and had bonfires. We never wanted to leave. Thank you, Hans, for such a great experience!

The beach is one of the best on the lake! As you can see from the

pictures and maps, The Lake Louise Getaway is located on the tip of

the northwest end. There is a marsh island directly across from the

beach. This provides quiet and seclusion.


For the kids: In Gaylord (~20 min away) there is the Call of the Wild and Bavarian Falls Park. There they have Putt-putt golf and unique shopping. There is also a skate park and Elk Viewing in Gaylord!

Or take the family over to J & B's for a great atmosphere and a great dinner!

Of course, Gaylord is known as the Golf Mecca of the Midwest. With

over a 100 course offerings, discover all that the north has to


You can find peace and quiet nestled on this private beach property

located on private Lake Louise. Only 13 miles outside of Gaylord,

Michigan there is year 'round fun with plenty to do! In winter, for

snowmobiling, there is direct access to hundreds of miles of groomed

snowmobile trails and seasonal roads. In summer, there are ATV/ORV

trails minutes away. For skiers or golfers, we are only 15 minutes

considered the golf Mecca of the Midwest. It is also close to

casinos and only an hour to Mackinaw Island or how about visiting

Gaylord during Alpenfest or the Otsego County Fair?
