About Larry Kemper

Have been vacationing at Burt Lake with my family and friends for over 25 years, and finally purchased our own place. Initially we will not be able to spend the entire summer on the lake, so intend to rent out when not able to utilize.

Larry Kemper purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Larry Kemper chose Northwest

Have vacationed on the northwest shores of Burt Lake for over 25 years, and this location on the lake is unique due to its seclusion and proximity to the undeveloped University of Michigan property at the north end of the lake.

A slice of heaven

Thank you Larry and Kelley for sharing your beautiful cottage. We had a great time! Our grandchildren had so much fun in the water and they loved the fact they could walk out to the end of the dock and more. There were 13 of us 8 adults and 5 children we all had room to stretch out. The hot tub was fabulous enjoyed by all the adults. Thanks again.

Arranged a Fall vist to this Burt Lake home. Easy "check in", nice informational emails. Convenient to points North and West especially. Clean, open feel to house. We just had two in our party, but plenty of sleeping/living room. Private feel to lot, but easy to navigate the surrounding areas.

Perfect. House was great, surprisingly well equipped kitchen, yard, fire pit, small beach, water was shallow enough that I could send my young kids in without having to worry. Everything we needed and more!
