Your new home is waiting

Lakes of the North is a private residential/recreational community located halfway between Gaylord and Mancelona on 10,000 mostly forested acres. Its amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course and full-service restaurant (both are open to the public), a 160-site year-round campground, a clubhouse with banquet facilities and an indoor swimming pool, two lakes with beach houses, an airport with a newly paved 4,350 foot runway, a winter sports activity center and a horse riding stable. Its 5,000 members pay an annual $250 primary lot maintenance assessment (and $125 per each additional lot owned), of which $50 per lot goes into a capital improvement fund which will both repay the swim facility bank financing and provide additional improvements within the development. Both vacant lots and homes are available for purchase by the general public to obtain membership in the association.
