About Guthrie Lakes

Clubhouse Hours

Nestled deep in the forested hills of Otsego County-the golf and winter sports mecca of the Midwest- is the residential resort community of Guthrie Lakes.

Located only 15 minutes south of the bustling Alpine-themed village of Gaylord, Guthrie Lakes is still relatively undiscovered. It's a hidden paradise of sparkling lakes, sandy beaches and quiet streets winding past homes and parks set in the midst of mature trees. All just a few miles off I-75.

Our Property Owners, the lucky folks who live and vacation here, call Guthrie Lakes their private piece of heaven. Property Owners have access to over 90 acres of parks with 2000 feet of lake frontage on Guthrie and Section One Lakes. The Clubhouse amenities include a gathering room with beautiful views. There is also a heated outdoor pool area and TV room. The upper level is used for Board of Directors’ meetings, and also houses the Manager(s)’ office. The lower level has recreational facilities, including an exercise area, ping pong table, locker rooms, saunas, and an indoor shallow pool which extends out to the main pool and surrounding deck.

Help Wanted

We are looking for a few great people to work at the clubhouse this summer! Must be a responsible adult willing to work days, evenings and weekends. Work will begin just before Memorial Day and end later in September. Please apply at the clubhouse.


I really have no words to describe this.

As a result, the dumpster at the clubhouse has been removed. The board will be considering how clubhouse garbage will be disposed of from now forward. For those members that do not know, weekly garbage pick up is a service provided by the township each Wednesday. If you will not be here on pick up day, please make arrangements with your friends or neighbors to take out and bring up your containers or make other arrangements for your trash.


This communication is the official “call for nominations” to fill three (3), three year EFPOA Board of Director vacancies beginning July 2021. The current terms of service for Laura Hart-Smith, Aimee Combs and Tom Jeffery will expire June 31, 2021. We are very grateful for their valuable contributions to the EFPOA over the past three years!

Have you considered being a “nominee” for the Board? If so, you must;
              1) Be a property owner whose name is on the deed and be a member in good                 standing (paid dues).
              2) You must draft a resume of no more than 200 words, state why you’d like to                   be on the Board, share your background, experience and expertise.
              3) Address your resume to: EFPOA Elections Committee
                                                                     PO Box 40
                                                               Waters, MI 49797

         And either:         A) Mail your resume to the EFPOA         

                                     B) Drop your resume (in an addressed envelope) in the lockbox                                               at the clubhouse during regular business hours.
