Gladwin, Michigan is located in Gladwin County in rural Northern Michigan.  Here you can expect lakes, state forests, downtown shopping and a small town atmosphere.  We are currently experiencing a buyers market!  There is a lot of inventory to choose from, much of which is the foreclosure (bank owned) inventory.  Interest rates are low and if you act now the first time home buyer tax credit of up to $8,000 is still in effect. No matter what type of market it is always in your best interest to get pre-approved by a lender before you begin viewing homes with your real estate agent.  This way you know: How much you can afford - you will have a price range and know what you are comfortable spending for your new home. Approximately what interest rate you can expect - the rate will change un...

Gladwin County is located in rural Northern Michigan and is conveniently located within 3 hours of Detroit and 2-2.5 hours from Flint and Lansing making it easy to come "Up North" for the weekend.  But, we encourage you to stay longer, and after you visit this area you will want to spend much more time here!  An area that is popular for its scenic lakes (including Wixom Lake & Secord Lake), plentiful state land, quaint parks, Amish communities and down town shopping.  Gladwin County is primarily a second home/resort community.  We have real estate to accommodate every buyer from very affordable cabins to luxurious homes.  As a life long resident of Gladwin County I know the area well and I know the market even better!                                                                      ...

RESULTS OF THE EASTER SUNDAY MUD BOG This row of trucks sits ready and waiting for the owners to take them out to play in the mud.  Two of the owners work out of state, and so the trucks sit waiting for the day.....  They did get to come home for Easter, and they did go the the RIDGE ROAD MUD BOG, also called the EASTER MUD BOG at 1400 Nettleton Rd in Gladwin MI ! When you live in a small town, everyone knows your name..... Upon entering the local party store, the clerk on duty greeted us by holding up the local newspaper and saying "Your kids are always getting themselves in the paper!" ( already had a copy of the paper! ) We were sure "STOKED" ! (That means excited, my teenage daughter would use that word)   Congrats Trista! Love you!

If you are looking for a safe, clean,  and fun vacation for your pets you should investigate  2 Cann Dog Boarding,   proprietors Evert & LuAnn Cann.    The love of animals is evident in the well thought out planning and developing of the resort like home away from home for man's best friend that LuAnn & Evert have built. 'Queen' as our dog Maggie is affectionately called by LuAnn definitely has been treated like a queen by her family of royals here at home as well as away.  I must say she gets the royal treatment when she frequents their spa like establishment.  From time of arrival to time of departure her stay is one of socializing, exercising (hiking and swimming) and a day of beauty shampoo,  shave,  and a manicure.  Not to mention she has her own private suite for her over night st...

February 24 is Paczki day at the Blue Ribbon Bakery in downtown Gladwin.   Make sure you put in your order ahead of time to insure you and your family will enjoy your favorite Paczki flavor and not be disappointed when the big day arrives. Phone in your orders to 989-426-1613. You'll find Paczki's throughout stores and bakeries in Gladwin, but in this person's opinion Blue Ribbon is hands down one of the freshest and best in the area. In a previous post an announcement was made of their move into town in The Blue Ribbon Bakery Has a New Address. So order your favorite Paczki's or just stop in for lunch and allow yourself a fabulous mouth watering treat. You can tell Beth Heintz and the girls Sue said hello and enjoy Paczki Day with many of our sweet tooth friends in Gladwin.        Blu...

Gladwin Counties Carriage Festival Grand Promenade Parade 2008 enjoyed by all in spite of the rain.  It rained the day before and shown a rainbow over Gladwin for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  The rain stopped long enough (and the sun shown) for the parade to proceed from downtown Gladwin to the Fairgrounds the next day. Tickets for admission to the Fairgrounds and more activities were $2.00 for adults and children were admitted free. Carriages were numbered and judged by those who watched the parade and chose to participate in the judging by ballot.  Plans for next year's parade and festival are already underway.  The parade proceeded from Cedar Ave. in downtown Gladwin to the Gladwin County Fairgrounds.  News 5 announced the event all weekend long.  There were many events for families to e...

Half way between West Branch and Gladwin you will find the Best Kept Secret in Mid-Michigan.  That is how this 4000 Acre complex has been aptly described known as Sugar Springs. There is a wide range of cottages,  year-round homes,  and camping lots available.  An upscale community with it's thousand acres of all-sports lakes, 18-hole championship golf course and the Hearth Restaurant,  Clubhouse and Pro-shop.  Swim year-round at the indoor Olympic sized pool or enjoy a game of Tennis.  There are 15 beach clubs, and the campground nestled away in the woods near the Activities Building where wildlife abounds.  A turf air strip is also available for you fliers. Two and a half hours from Detroit metropolitan area makes this a great weekend getaway or your home away from home.
