There are a cluster of chain motels at the 75 interchange in Gaylord but my question is why would anyone stay there? The Ostego Club is just 5 minutes east of town and it is lovely, quiet, green, well maintained, comfortable and costs less than the chain hotels. We stayed for under $100 and had a huge room with a... More

My family of four stayed July 2-4, 2016 in the Blue Spruce Lodge #106. Husband and son purchased a golf package for July 3 & 4th. The Tribute was a nice course but was not taken care of, greens brown with holes. They are not golf snobs by any means but to have 6-8 people on a tee box, allowing... More

Otsego is a 75 year old private ski resort that opens periodically to the public. Buildings are old but well-decorated clean and comfortable the resort itself is very family-oriented and a lot of fun to stay at. Like any older property there are chips and dents here or there but as long as you don't let that distract you it's... More

even with only half the runs open, it was a WONDERFUL New Years ski weekend! The river cabin and the main lodge are as relaxing as a ski resort can be. Service was great and never waited in line to get on the lift.... thanks!

During the fall in Northern Michigan, rooms are booked early as many make the trek to see the beautiful fall colors - Our trip was last minute and finding a room was a challenge.

We stayed here for a weekend because our friends were hosting their wedding on the property. It's a unique setup - it feels very much like a ski lodge, but since we were there in July this obviously wasn't the attraction. It's a bunch of smaller lodges with 10-20 rooms in each, as well as several other buildings including bars,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine the hand-hewn beams of the main lodge as you warm up by the roaring fire! The 20 mile vista of the Sturgeon River Valley sprawls out to the north. The sun is shining. It's a perfect day for skiing. The kids grab their friends and their snowboards. Mom and Dad ski to the River Cabin to meet the kids for lunch. It's a full day of skiing followed by a full evening of entertainment. A great day. A great life. This is the essence of the Otsego Club.Short lift lines, combined with advanced snowmaking capabilities, a Professional Ski Instructor Association (P.S.I.A.) ski school, a nationally-recognized "all member" ski patrol, an unparalleled ski safety record, renowned children's program, Dan Webster's Ski Shop with ski and snowboard rentals, on-site bed and breakfast-style accommodations and condominium and log cabin vacation rentals, the award-winning cuisine of one of the finest restaurants in Northern Michigan, all give Otsego Club an appealing, quality atmosphere.Since 1939, a tradition of families spending time together.The Otsego Club also offers a golf experience comprised of two uniquely-challenging PGA championship courses - The Classic, and The Tribute, designed by Rick Robbins and PGA Tour Professional, Gary Koch. Each course offers scenic beauty in the form of woodlands, water and wildlife.THE TRIBUTE - OUR MASTERPIECE!Designed by Rick Robbins and PGA Tour Professional, Gary Koch.
