Property description

Quintessential Up North Cottage Living awaits you, along with brilliant sunsets and stunning views. You will discover Burt Lake is one of Northern Michigan's largest and pristine inland lakes. You will stay in our charming cottage on the East shore of Burt Lake. You will have a wonderful vacation on 70 feet of private water frontage as gentle breezes from the West caress the shoreline.

Our Burt Lake Cottage is Clean and completely smoke-free. It comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. There is a 2-seat island bar for eating and preparing meals and a 4 place table for eating in the sunroom overlooking the lake. The two bedrooms downstairs feature log beds with one queen pillow top mattress and one full mattress. The finished loft has 2 single beds. There is also a queen pull-out sofa in the living room.

You have your choice of spending time in the shady hammock, or sunning/tanning yourself on the attached patio or deck out by the lake.

You may bring your own boat and use our mooring buoy. Two kayaks are available for guest use. Daily/weekly boat and jet ski rentals are available at various local establishments.

We have a great location for power boating, kayaking, swimming, sailing, wind-surfing, paddleboarding, and fishing. Nearby trails are nice for hiking and mountain-biking. Dozens of golf courses are in the area. The nearest is just 2 miles away.

Note: Post Labor Day weekend, we have reduced our minimum stay to 2 days to allow Late Summer Weekenders and People seeking the wonderful Fall Colors the ability to rent for a 2 or 3 day weekend. Late Summer and Fall are a beautiful time to be Up North. The lake is a little quieter and the fall colors are beautiful. It is a great time to travel down the 'Tunnel of Trees' just North of Harbor Springs on (M-119) and have a nice meal at Historic Legs Inn and Restaurant in Cross Village.

The cottage is very near to the town of Indian River. Burt Lake is part of the 'Inland Waterway' which includes Pickerel Lake, Crooked Lake, Crooked River, Burt Lake, Indian River, Mullett Lake, and Cheboygan River. Nearly 40 miles of beauty to explore by boat. Shopping within 30 minutes at Petoskey, Cheboygan, Harbor Springs, Mackinaw City. Access to Mackinac Island Ferries and fudge within 30 minutes also.

Just 30 minutes to the North is "Mighty Mac", the longest suspension bridge in the Western hemisphere. The upper peninsula "UP" can be explored after crossing the bridge, including the Tahquamenon Falls State Park and many more natural wonders and attractions.
