Community of Burt Lake cottage description

Enjoy dazzling sunsets from your deck overlooking scenic Burt Lake!

Home Features:
Our cottage is a newer construction completed in spring 2008. It features a bright, open floor plan with loft. You can relax inside with stunning lake views through the two story “wall of windows” overlooking the water, or feel the cool lake breezes on the screened in porch with attached deck. There are pine ceilings throughout and a stone fireplace for an authentic 'rustic' feel, as well as a large, modern kitchen, full sized laundry room, and flat yard with picnic table on the lake side (see the link below for additional pictures)! The cottage is very well maintained, as it really is our familiy's 'home away from home'. We only rent it out a few weeks a year.

Property Features:
The secluded, wooded lot includes 90 feet of private beach front. Enjoy listening to the waves wash up against the beautiful smooth rock beach, or take a relaxing swim off the end of the dock, where the lake depth is 3-4 feet, with sandy bottom, for approximately 100 yards beyond the end of the dock. Burt lake is crystal clear - PERFECT FOR SWIMMING!! A twelve acre nature preserve immediately behind the property and the 'Seven Springs' nature preserve about a mile away offer great hiking. The property also includes a buoy for mooring small (less than 20ft) boats and use of a canoe. Two of the bedrooms feature queen sized beds, one of the bedrooms includes a standard double bed and a crib, and the forth bedroom includes bunk beds (perfect for the kids).

Area Features:
Burt lake is on northern Michigan’s “inland waterway” that includes a chain of four lakes and four fully navigable rivers. Nearby attractions include Mackinac Island, the Mackinac Bridge, and the charming resort towns of Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Sport and pontoon boat rentals are available at several local marinas. Other nearby activities include hiking, golf, horseback riding, and canoe and rafting trips.

                          Year Purchased: 1952

                          About the owner: Our family has been spending our summers on Burt Lake since 1952, when my grandparents bought the property. The original cottage in which I spent my childhood summers was built in 1907. Unfortunately, time took its toll, and we had to replace the old cottage with a new one in 2007. Today, our family spends several weeks a summer at Burt Lake, and we rent out the cottage to help with the financial costs of rebuilding. The new place is beautiful. We custom designed the floor plan to take best advantage of the location. It is bright and open. You can see the lake from almost every room (except the bathrooms and one bedroom) in the 'cottage' - even the laundry room has a lake view!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We love our time on Burt Lake. It helps us connect with nature and with each other as a family. We always return refreshed, recharged, and ready to face the 'real world' again. Everyone in our family (including our two pre-school aged daughters) agree that their very favorite memories are those 'at the lake'. The environment is so relaxing - the lake air, the sound of the waves during the occasionally breezy night, and the quiet setting on a gravel road with a large woods (with hiking trails) directly behind the property makes for the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of our normal lives. Plus, there is always something to do - swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, sight seeing, or shopping in one of the nearby resort towns - when simply relaxing on the deck is not enough!
