Property description

Located on the northwest corner of Burt Lake, one of the most beautiful and biggest lakes in the state, I'm sure our cabin will provide wonderful place for the that vacation you deserve. The comfortable cottage as well as the lakefront grounds are well maintained.
Children and adults love to swim in the hardpacked sandy shoreline extending out over 200 feet before gradually dropping off into crystal clear water.
Nearby is a fire pit with wood provided, a dock, mooring anchor for your boat and plenty of space to relax and enjoy your stay. This is a shared area for the association; a fun place to meet new people.
Many of our clients have been renting from us for over 15 years and even come from as far away as Pennsylvania.

Conveniently located between Indian River and Alanson on the waterfront of Burt Lake near the mouth of the Crooked River (well known as an excellent fishing hole). ENTER an annual fishing contest every May Call 231-238-9325 for details. Enjoy the 45 miles of northern Michigan's Inland Waterway extending from Pickerel Lake to Lake Huron.

Note: Guests need to bring paper products for kitchen and bath, bed linens (pillows, blankets, spreads are provided). A detailed list of additional items will be provided.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Tom & Nancy love Michigan living! Nancy was born and raised in Michigan Tom relocated from Pennsylvania more than 25 years ago. They both enjoy volleyball, golf, tennis & boating.

Why the Owner Chose Alanson, MI, USA:
Burt Lake has been part of Nancy's life for almost 20 years. Burt Lake has always been her favorite spot to bring her family to enjoy their summer vacations year after year. Tom & Nancy decided to purchase this cozy cottage because of the great location and the warm and friendly atmosphere. They plan on bringing up their grand kids for many years to come.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The location of the cottage allows us to do many of our favorite activities without having to travel long distances. There is a Rails to Trials bike riding trial in Indian River that we have ridden to Wolverine and back (you can ride all the way to Gaylord). Traveling the inland waterway is a wonderful way to spend a summer day. Visit Crooked Lake, Burt Lake and Mullett Lake all in one day. You can even continue on through Cheyboygan onto Lake Huron and visit Mackinac Island. The water is clean and clear and has a very nice sandy bottom in most areas. You can take a short 40 minute drive to the Mackinaw Bridge and the ferries to the Island. We are also just 30 minutes to Petoskey and 15 minutes from Harbor Springs. The layout of the property is very conducive to family fun. The community common area is a great way to mingle and meet new people. The shoreline is very flat, with a very nice day dock for your boat. Come and enjoy days on end of boating fun!
