The Scene

Located on the property of Golf magazines top 75 properties in the entire country and placed at the height of the fall color change surrounded by acres of jack pines and hardwoods, this is the perfect breeding ground for things that lurk in the dark.  You just don’t know what is living in the deep dark forest.  If you think you got what it takes to come and explore the Tree Tops property in Gaylord, Mi the terror awaits.  A undulating cross country style course, you will get a retreive from some of the terror if you make it to the chair lift,  just get ready to run when you make it to the top of the mountain. The heart of the terror begins and ends at the top of the mountain.


Stay on site to enjoy a great night with these special room rates:
