Property Details

Updated: Jun 6, 2016
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

A 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath beachfront cottage located in the heart of Gaylord on the picturesque Otsego Lake Arbutus Beach. All bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor. Our cottage offers views of the sunset that are second to none. Take it all in while relaxing on our spacious lake-facing deck. Or, if you prefer, walk downstairs to our sandy beachfront. After sunset, wander down our extensive dock to our sun deck to gain the clearest view of the night's'll be sure to see some shooting stars! Otsego Lake is great for swimming, boating, fishing, and sun bathing.

In addition to our cottage being a fabulous summer retreat, it is also perfect for winter lodging. We are approximately 15 minutes from the Otsego Club and Resort, and 20 minutes from Treetops Resort. After a long day of winter activities, relax by the fireplace in our warm and cozy living room, or take a dip in our jacuzzi bath located in the 1st floor bathroom. We offer a full kitchen with a sizeable dinner table. There are also a lot of great restaurants located in downtown Gaylord (10 minutes). We also have WiFi and a large HD flat screen for all of the sports enthusiasts.

Please feel free to contact me for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!

A Wonderful Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cottage provided a wonderful getaway for my family. The property offers a really well kept palette of amenities that any Northern MI goer would love-- clean, nice fireplace, plenty of living/dining/sleeping space, a deck that offers a beautiful view, and a private beach. Our family was very fortunate to stumble upon this rental, and we highly recommend giving it a try. Kudos to the owners for offering such a peaceful vacation getaway.

Not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

The beach was perfect for my granddaughters. When we arrived the house was clean. However, the house is really in need of some updating. The windows were extremely hard to open, the half bath was leaking, and the washer could only be used on dark clothes because of the high rust content. The kitchen drawers were hard to open. The pathway to the beach lacked a railing on part of it so it was not senior friendly. There were some septic issues which the owner immediately took care of but it was very inconvenient.

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Came up to Gaylord for the 4th of July and it was everything I could have asked for. Perfect weather, amazing sunsets, great dining, perfect for water activities. Cottage was in perfect condition upon arrival. Very clean and comfy. I would highly reccomend this cottage during all 4 seasons. Very close to Otsego Club for golf, skiing, and dining!

Spiders and ants and earwigs, oh my!

  • 2 of 5

Nice beach with beautiful views of lake and sunsets. Also, shallow water out to the end of the dock is great for small kids.

However, this cottage was not clean or well maintained. We had to clean the cottage ourselves upon arrival, which included mopping the kitchen floor and vacuuming the living area, etc.... We also found spiders, ants and other pests throughout our stay.

All in all, our vacation was great. We just expected more from the cottage-considering the price range. Had we read similar reviews prior to booking this cottage, we would have likely stayed elsewhere.

Owner's Response: We are dismayed at the comment re: cleanliness. We spend $100/ week for a thorough clean and will be certain to let our housekeeper know! We were up ourselves 2 weeks prior and the cottage was spotless. This unfortunate situatiuon will be rectified.
