About Bob Carlson

This home is owned by the Carlson family bought this beautiful property to escape the Texas heat for part of the summer and to enjoy the beauty of Northern Michigan.

Bob Carlson purchased this Cottage in 2013

Why Bob Carlson chose Cheboygan County

You had me at the the beautiful deck incredible sunsets. We fell in love with Burt Lake after renting different cottages for many years. We enjoy boating and being on the lake. Hoppies tavern is on the lake accessible by boat or car as is the Inn Between. Burt Lake, the fourth largest lake in Michigan, is part of an intercoastal waterway connecting 5 bodies of water all the way up to Lake Huron! The town of Indian River is 10 minutes away and has some great little restaurants and small shops. However, it is a small town so you never feel crowded (in town or on the lake) or face traffic jams. The natural beauty of this area is stunning and it is a wonderful escape. Nice golf course 5 minutes away. Lots to do in the area and 30 minute drive to the larger towns of Harbor Springs, Boyne Highlands, Petoskey, Charlevoix, Bay Harbor, Walloon Lake and Boyne City that have beautiful waterfronts, shopping, cultural events, cinemas and restaurants. Great day trips to Mackinaw Island, and surrounding area.

What makes this Cottage unique

This house has an open floor plan and lives well. The living spaces overlook the lake and open onto a large wrap around deck perfect for relaxing and being with friends and family. Beautiful cushioned chairs (8) and two tables and dining table that seats 10. The house is professionally decorated and has a rustic but elegant comfortable feel. It is well appointed with dishes, glasses, towels (including beach towels), sheets, kitchen utensils,etc.

                                                                Beautiful, comfy, well-equipped house on the best lake we've stayed at in Michigan. This is coming from a family that are very experienced renters and Michigan vacationers. Most appreciated were the great lakefront for walking right into the water anytime, the dock platform and the huge wraparound deck for lounging outside, well-equipped kitchen and multiple comfy rooms to hang around inside. The large crystal clear lake has boat rental sources right in Indian River, and it is nice and quiet, not crowded. We golfed nearby, used kayaks at house, rented a pontoon, and did tubing and kayaking on the Sturgeon River. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, comfy, and whole house is lavishly decorated. The owners are extremely helpful and hospitable, and photos are accurate. We're already booking our next stay a year ahead!
