About Kate Giller

I have travelled to Michigan to enjoy the summers there for most of my life and am proud to now be an owner of this fabulous home on beautiful burt lake.

Kate Giller purchased this house in 2014

Why Kate Giller chose Burt Lake

This spacious home (over 5,000 square feet) has two living areas - one up and one down, each with their own refrigerator to allow different social groups or generations their own space.

What makes this house unique

Private dock, sunny yard, fire pit, plenty of patio furniture, kayaks, canoes, rafts and bikes all for your use! The resort towns of Harbor Springs and Petoskey can be reached in a short 20 minute drive for those who desire shopping and a long list of restaurants.

A beautiful home and wonderful experience. We could not have hoped for more. It was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home from Sept. 21 - 25 and were blessed with unusually warm weather which let us really make the most of our time there. The home was everything and more than the description and the homeowner was warm and gracious and provided for a great experience. The beautiful kitchen had everything you could want for cooking, even cupcake tins, the beds were comfortable with an abundance of fluffy pillows and the seating was so comfy. The view was just amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the peaceful lake in the morning and the stars (and Milky Way) at night. The fire pit provided a great gathering spot for conversation and S'Mores in the evening. Sunrise canoe trips were a favorite pastime.

Plenty of information was provided on shopping locations, where to eat and entertainment options with DirectTV and internet available should you encounter a rainy day. Vivio's was the best pizza I've ever had and that's saying something coming from someone living in NY where we know how to make good pizza. Vernales is the place to go when you're ready to splurge on some great steak. I don't doubt that all the recommendations for dining were equally as good. Lots of information was provided.

We loved the layout with the bedrooms on two floors and on the far sides of the cottage providing for privacy. The central great rooms on both floors gave our families the opportunity to be together as we cooked and just relaxed. The younger group enjoyed having their own downstairs area to hang out together too.

The homeowner was very thoughtful in providing plenty of soft towels, soaps in the showers and even a first aid kit and ointments in the guest bath for those emergencies you hope you never encounter. We felt comfortable from the moment we walked in and spoke often about how we wished it was our family lake house and how we wished we did not have to leave! Do not hesitate if you are considering renting this home. You will not be disappointed and you will be wanting to book it year after year.

Beautiful Lakefront Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We were super pleased with this wonderful home. It is perfect for families wanting a beautiful lake view, and a quiet retreat. It is neat, clean and feels like home. It is only a short drive to wonderful shopping, scenic drives, and Macinaw Island. We highly recommend this home away choice.
