Community of Burt Lake cottage description
Enjoy our recently refurbished cottage located less than 90 feet from the northwest shore of Burt Lake. You will have an outstanding view through the large picture window,from the deck or anywhere along the 145 foot lakefront. There is a long dock and swim platform for enjoyment of Burt Lake's clear waters. If bringing a boat, launch facilities are less than ten minutes away and a mooring and a 2000 pound capacity hoist is available.
We also have a 14 foot fishing boat for your use. Burt Lake is a great fishing site with bass, perch, walleye and brown trout. Nearby is the Maple River if your avocation is stream fishing for brook trout. There are several golf courses within a ten minute drive and another four or five within a 30 minute drive. You are located on the Inland Waterway with access to three other inland lakes and several rivers. Ultimately the Great Lakes are accessible via this waterway.
If shopping and sightseeing is more to your liking, look no further. Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Mackinaw City are a short drive away. In Mackinaw you can catch the ferry to Mackinaw Island. Rent a bike and set your own pace as there are no motor vehicles on the island. If you avail yourself of the many fine restaurants in the area and feel the need to work the calories off, there are both bike and hiking trails nearby.
Lest you forget that you are on vacation, many previous visitors say the best part is relaxing and enjoying the view.

Exactly what we wanted !!
Exactly what we wanted !!
The cottage is exactly as stated. It has been exceptionally well maintained. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our week here. Bill & Cathy wanted our stay to be stress free and it certainly was. The furnishings are very clean and comfortable. Each bedroom is spacious with big dressers and closets. The view from the living room at any time of the day is amazing. Being Michigan the weather went from cool to hot while we were here. The breeze off the lake kept the cottage very comfortable. I did not believe the weather report when it said it was 84*. Ron used the motor boat every morning and early evening to fish. Using night crawlers and crawler harnesses he caught 14" perch, 17" &18" walleye, and 10" rock bass. We saw a doe and buck outside the kitchen window one morning. Ron was able to get photos. For this city girl,it was the highlight of my week. I set up my sewing machine in the dining room next to the window. I kept my camera ready each day hoping they would come back. They didn't.The only day trip we planned was to visit the Oden Fish Hatchery about 25 minutes away. It has changed a lot since the early 80's when we vacationed at the state park with our boys. Ron purchased fish food at the welcome center.The brown trout jump and circle around waiting for the food. (Bring hand sanitizer to get the smell off your hands.) There is a picnic area at the pond. It is an experience for the whole family. We invited friends over for an evening. They remarked on how welcome you feel when you walk into the cottage. During the warm days Ron grilled and we ate on the picnic table. The afternoons we sat on the deck. It is a very quiet neighborhood. One evening we did meet Bill & Cathy. They were excited about our experiences. It would not be an up north vacation without a campfire.at night. We watched fishermen out in their boats as we sat around the fire. This cottage is very relaxing. We looking forward to another visit next year.

We stayed here the last week in July and I would highly recommend it. It's super, super clean and comfortable. It's at the north end of the lake which is nice and quiet (and not so windy!). The yard is very large so the boys were able to play catch and run around. Campfire every night. The swimming area is excellent - hard packed sand and water is very clean. They really enjoyed jumping off the dock. There is a lot to do in the area - short drive to Petoskey, Mackinaw, and Lake Michigan beaches.
