About owner

We have lived in Michigan for many years and have enjoyed all the activities it has to offer.

owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why owner chose Northwest

We first discovered this popular area of Michigan many years ago. We enjoy it and frequently use our family cottage which is close by. It is our escape from the work and we love the tranquility and enjoy all kinds of water sports

We found this rental cottage close by and bought it several years ago. We renovated it and it is now proving to be a popular place to stay. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak and fishing gear and enjoy all that Burt lake has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

Fishing, boating, swimming are some of the activities available. This cottage is close to Alanson, Pelleston, Petoskey, and Harbor Springs and Mackinaw City and all that this area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The cottage was great! Clean and comfortable and had all the needed accommodations. The weather was not as cooperative - rain and cooler than expected. Overall we had a great time, boating/tubing and lazing around. thanks so much for your hospitality."

Very nice cottage setting on a great location on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. Cottage was very comfortable, perhaps one of the nicest I have rented over the past 30 years. Rural area yet close to towns and activities if you choose to leave the peace and quiet.

We had a fantastic time! The kitchen was fully equipped, the bathrooms were updated, the views from the lake side bedroom were dreamy! Plenty of sitting space in the living area. The deck and lawn were spacious. Beautiful rental! Moira was super responsive and helpful! Thanks for a great week!
