Recent Burt Lake reviews

  • A Cottage, NOT!

    "My idea of a cottage is an old, musky and well-worn place, where you have to listen to a squeaky old screen door that doesn't quite close. Where mosquitos follow you indoors and outdoors. This is anything but a cottage. It is a private get-away. A retreat. A place where you can watch the sunrise, skip stones and have a private campfire. We used this as our base, which is only 20 minutes from the "Mighty Mac." While there we visited the Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls, Sleepy Bear Dunes, Mackinaw City, and Mackinac Island. The only reason we would not recommend this place is because we want to go next year and don't want the competition."

  • A Wonderful Week

    "Our family of 4 adults and 1 11yr. old girl had a wonderful visit at the Lily Pad. The cottage itself is a lovely and well kept home with all the amenities including plenty of storage space which is unusual in most cottages. We lucked out with a beautiful weather week in the mid to high 70's and blue skies. We enjoyed kayaking and our attempts at fishing (we'll get them next time!). We visited Petoskey, Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island, and Cheboygan where we ate at a delicious restaurant, Pier 33 on the river. The meal at Legs Inn in Cross Village was great as well. The cottage location is so close to so many places and activities that I still have a list of things we did not have time to do or visit. Now, if we could just get rid of those pesky mosquitoes after sunset, we would know we were close to heaven."

  • Great lake vacation spot!

    "The cabin was clean with new appliances. Bath and bedrooms clean and the beds are comfortable. Comfortable place to be inside or outside on the spacious deck. We'll definitely use this cottage again if we return to Burt Lake."

  • Kathy/Bob

    "We are renting the waterfront unit. It is absolutely wonderful. I can hear the lake from the bedroom. The cottage is roomy, clean, well-supplied. We are near Petosky, a beautiful "Cross In the Woods," and the lake is beautiful. There is a t.v. and internet service, helpful on rainy days like today, and serene wooded walking trails right by the cottage. I absolutely recommend this place! Thank you for a wonderful experience!"

Burt Lake Travel Tips

Burt Lake Vacation Rentals Are Great Destinations All Year Round

There are some places that are so versatile and beautiful that it's difficult to determine the best time of year to visit them. Burt Lake, Michigan is one of those places. With four very distinct seasons, Michigan's climate ranges from sunny, hot, and humid in the summer to snowy, cold, and icy in the winter. Northeast Michigan lake houses are a great way to immerse yourself in gorgeous scenery during any month of the year, from breathtakingly colorful fall foliage to pristine sunrises setting off glittering snow.

Outdoor Activities Abound at Burt Lake

With such drastic seasonal changes comes an endless array of outdoor activities that could keep any nature lover busy, and Burt Lake vacation rentals are the perfect way to partake in them. Burt Lake has prime fishing during many months of the year; in fact, the lake briefly held the record for the largest sturgeon caught in the United States. It's also a fantastic location for swimming, boating, wakeboarding, and beach lounging during the summer. Hiking is especially fun during the fall, when you can witness breathtaking views of foliage ablaze with color. Winter brings a season of snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing fun, and spring is a great time to go for a hike or picnic.

Burt Lake Is Conveniently Located Near Popular Attractions

Burt Lake lodging puts you right in the heart of some of Northern Michigan's most popular attractions. The world's largest "Cross in the Woods" is nearby, and historic Mackinaw City and Mackinaw Island are a mere 30 miles up the highway. You can also visit Cheboygan or Indian River, both of which are quaint towns that have plenty to offer in the way of shopping and dining.
