Family-Friendly Ski Resort | Gaylord, MI | Otsego Resort

About Us

Founded in 1939, Otsego Resort has been a prominent fixture in northern Michigan. The resort features meticulously groomed, family friendly ski hills, 36-holes of championship golf lead by the Tribute course, which meanders in and around the Sturgeon River Valley, and the parkland style Classic course. In addition, the resort offers a variety of lodging rooms, suites, and condominiums. There are more than 24,000 square feet of meeting space, romantic wedding spaces and the award-winning Duck Blind Grille, a multi-year winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.

Your Year Round Vacation Destination

You know how they say that location is everything? Well, Otsego Resort has the best location in Northern Michigan. Located just a few minutes from the intersections of I-75, US-27 and M-32, the resort is an easy drive from any destination in Northern Michigan. 

This 80-year-old hidden gem of the North has long been a home away from home for many.   We are the perfect place to snow ski, tube, snowboard and snowshoe during the winter.   In the warmer months, we are home to 36 holes of championship golf including the acclaimed Tribute Course and our country club-style Classic Course.  You may spend more time taking selfies on these courses instead of working on your golf game!


Ski, Snowboarding & Tubing

Otsego Resort offers the best skiing, snowboarding, tubing, cross country, and snowshoeing around! Short lift lines, advanced snowmaking capabilities, a Professional Ski Instructor Association (P.S.I.A.) ski school, and a nationally-recognized “all member” ski patrol make Otsego Resort an unparalleled ski experience.



The Resort offers 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. Both golf courses are open to the PUBLIC and are the perfect way to experience northern Michigan.
