Totally Unexpected house

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for Snodrift2017 because its 15 minutes from all of the rally stages and didnt intend to spend much time in it, but wow was I impressed. Really walked into the house blind not expecting the awesome game room in the basement. Wish we could've spent some time on the lake but we came here for snow events. Most of our days were spent around the town during the races, but at night most of it was spent hunting for the dollar from the previous renters. Still couldn't find it, unfortunately.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at LLG. The house is equipped with everything you will need for your vacation. The fireplace is very warm, pool table in basement is fun after a day of snowmobiling. The trails are easy to get to and the views are gorgeous.

The perfect combination of fun and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at LLG! There was something fun for everyone to enjoy. My husband and I have five kids ages 9 to 17 and they all had a blast. My husband and I enjoyed relaxing. I personally enjoyed kayaking out in the lake and enjoying the beautiful views. It was so peaceful.

We had so much fun. There were 4 kayaks, a canoe, a rowboat, and a paddleboat there. We used them all. Plus, there were fun games like cornhole, air hockey, ping pong, darts, pool, and lots of board games and video games. There was so much to do. I can't forget about swimming and fishing. My youngest caught a catfish.

The house itself was incredibly clean and had everything we needed plus more. The beds were so comfortable and there was a large assortment of pillows to choose from.

I was also so surprised at the lack of insects. We didn't need to wear bug spray at all. There were no ticks or mosquitoes, and very few flies. They did a great job managing that.

Hans was quick to respond to messages and very courteous.

I highly recommend LLG for your next vacation. It was amazing! We started planning our next trip to LLG for next summer!!

Peaceful & Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The LLG is wonderful! It is even better than the pictures. It has an awesome kitchen area and is fully stocked with everything and anything you would need. It's truly private, it's clean, it's comfortable and it makes for a perfect vacation.

Hans is great! He's timely in his responses & is helpful with anything you may need.

The biggest negative was the amount of ticks. But it's to be expected at the lake, near the woods, in Michigan. We didn't leave the windows and doors open but perhaps the people who stayed before us did or the person in charge of cleaning, because there were a lot in the beginning of our stay and very few towards the end. So just a note to be aware. We did have a couple in the beds but just checked before getting in and it wasn't a big deal.

We would highly recommend staying here! You won't regret it!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear about the tick situation. As I do allow pets to stay at the cottage, this is always a possibility. Although, I have not heard from any other renters nor my cleaner that there was ever an issue. Please be assured that I will have the cottage sprayed immediately. Thank you for the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying at LLG was one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever had. We were a group of 8 friends who were looking for a spacious, quiet getaway to relax after a tough semester at school. LLG was offering everything we were looking for: super clean, spacious, reasonable price.

We stayed there only for 2 days, but LLG is offering enough to do for a whole week. Playing board-games, pool, air hockey, table tennis, Kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and then enjoying a lake-side BBQ. Two thumbs up for the LLG.

Great place to stay! Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the LGG in March and loved it! It was cold and snowy and beautiful outside!! The cabin has everything you need. Very comfy and clean! We really enjoyed using the pool table and the dart board downstairs. Also a close ride into downtown Gaylord to walk around and shop or have a good meal!! We would definitely return to the LGG! Warmer times of the year would be a blast here too!

Hans, the owner is very good about getting back to you quickly. Thanks Hans!
