Gaylord Real Estate Listings and Information
Gaylord styles itself as an "Alpine Village" and the city center features many buildings with Tyrolean traverse style motifs. Receiving abundant snowfall and experiencing mild summer temperatures, for many years the area around Gaylord has become known for its many skiing and golf resorts, one of the largest such concentrations in the Midwest. Gaylord features an annual event in July known as the Alpenfest. Participants are encouraged to dress in traditional Swiss stylings. Gaylord has a sister city: Pontresina, Switzerland.
The Alpenfest takes place in Gaylord, Michigan. For over 40 years the Alpenfest has been a tradition for the townspeople and its visitors. The Alpenfest is held the third week of July.
Gaylord is also seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gaylord; it is by far the smallest settlement serving as the location of an active Roman Catholic cathedral in the United States.
Gaylord has two high schools: Gaylord High School, which is one of the largest high schools in Northern Michigan and competes in the Big North Conference along with the five other large high schools in that area of the state. Its 2007 enrollment of 1,076 pupils places it in Class A (large schools) of the Michigan High School Athletic Association. St. Mary Cathedral School is a Pre K-12 school which, despite its small size, has a successful athletic tradition. It is the only private school in the nine-member Ski Valley League and its 2007 high school enrollment of 110 places it in MHSAA's Class D.
It is amazing that a community of this size can offer 21 championship golf courses within just a 45 minute radius. Some of the most famous golf designers in the United States have put their stamp on Gaylord including Robert Trent Jones, Tom Doak, Tom Fazio and Jerry Mathews. Gaylord has deserved the aptly appointed title of America’s Summer Golf Mecca.
The Gaylord region is headquarters for 101 miles of groomed Michigan snowmobile trails and connects with over 300 miles of trail throughout Northern Michigan. The newly created Gaylord to Mackinac Trail shown here is a fast smooth ride of 61 miles along an abandoned rail corridor.
A claim to fame of this region of Michigan is the only free ranging Elk herd East of the Mississippi River. With a herd that numbers over 1,000 of these majestic creatures, spotting elk is well known activity for locals and visitors. Visit Gaylord’s Aspen Park where a number of transported elk reside each and every day.
