Enjoy dazzling sunsets from your deck overlooking scenic Burt Lake!
Our cottage is a newer construction, completed in 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, and full sized laundry room. The cottage is our family's 'home away from home'. We only rent it out a few weeks a year.
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 about three feet, with sandy bottom, for approximately 100 feet 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 21ft) boats and use of a both a canoe and a kayak. Two of the bedrooms feature queen sized beds, one of the bedrooms includes a bunk bed and another twin bed, and the forth, smaller, bedroom is furnished with a standard double bed.
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.
SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
- We are on the windy side of the lake. While the lake is generally calm, this means that outdoor fires and overnight boat mooring are not permitted.
- Burt lake state park is about 5 miles away and has a good boat launch, and several local marinas offer short term boat slip rentals. Unfortunately, renters are not permitted to use the boat hoist.
- Occupancy is strictly limited to 8 people. We are on a quiet, family oriented beach, and we want to keep good relations with our neighbors!
