This is “God’s Country.” Here – in Gaylord, in Otsego County – you can kick back and take in the beauty that is Northern Michigan: shimmering lakes, flowing rivers, wildernesses, scenic trails and great golf.
As a family, as a couple, as an individual, explore nature’s playground in the north. Choose to unwind on our sun-drenched beaches, or pick up the pace a bit and pedal along a country road.
Or set up camp at one of our inviting campgrounds; launch a boat on one of our sparkling lakes; cast a line into our clear waters to reel in relaxation, and quite possibly a fish. Sample true hospitality — northern style.
In cozy hamlets and quaint shops or in bustling resorts and charming cafes, you’ll be greeted by friendly folks who’ll invite you to return for yet another season in “God’s Country.”
