About the property

Custom built 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom with pontoon available!

This is a stunning custom built home on the northeast side of Burt Lake. Located near the tip of Greenman's Point, you will have some of the most spectacular sunsets the lake has to offer. The 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home has an open floor plan featuring a large gourmet kitchen perfect for family gatherings and entertaining. The windows surrounding the home make it feel as though you are sleeping on top of the water. Views of the lake can be seen from almost every room in the home.

Just 15 minutes from Burt Lake State Park, 30 minutes from Petoskey and 20 minutes from Mackinaw City. The house is located a few minutes from the North Central State Trail (“rail trail”), which is an excellent biking/hiking trail.

The house sleeps sixteen in beds. Both main floor bedrooms have privacy bathrooms. Upstairs bath is a three room bath, separating the toilet, shower, and main sink so all can be used at once. A fully equipped kitchen comes complete with all of the amenities needed for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner: gas range and oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker and bean grinder, toaster oven, and an assortment of pots and pans. A charcoal grill is also available for your outdoor grilling. Utility room has brand new front loading washer and dryer. Fire pit for your evening lakeside fires. Satellite DIRECTV and WiFi.

About Matt and Jenna

We, Matt and Jenna, both grew up in Northern Michigan. Jenna lived full time in Charlevoix, and Matt spent summers in Lewiston. We currently live in the Ann Arbor area, but we knew we needed a place Up North to bring us back to our roots. We found the perfect setting on beautiful Burt Lake, and we were able to build this house to accommodate all of the family and friends that we wanted to spend time on the Lake with. We are sharing the home with renters while our teenagers keep us very busy. We love being a part of peoples life long memories!

Matt and Jenna purchased this house in 2012

Great stay at a great cottage on one of Michigan's most beautiful inland lakes,

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely and well equipped and supplied including the modern gourmet kitchen. The lake was beautiful with its crystal clear waters and miles of shoreline. I appreciate that the owners made their water toys available for our use. Matt and Jenna were responsive when we needed feedback from them along the way and were a pleasure with which to work. I dream of returning.

Simply Amazing! Dream home Cabin, Dream Home Setting.

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this cabin really thought this out. The cabin is perfect for large families, and is nested deep inside some Cheboygan Forrest. Burt Lake (4 largest inland lake in Michigan) is beautiful. We were able to stargaze right from the backyard. The cabin is fully equipped (no joke) with everything you need.

Bathrooms (10/10)

I rarely give 5 stars, but this cabin deserves it.

Ice Fishermen Approved

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house with the room to accommodate 8 men for a long weekend. Clean, fully functional and absolutely beautiful. Matt & Jenna have created a perfect place for large groups to stay and be completly comfortable. Kitchen was big enough for our camp cook to make meals for all of us and we had room to all sit and eat together at the dining room table (that never happens). Thank you for having us and we will be calling you again next year.

Perfect Vacation House with Plenty of Room!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 Families with kids rent this house for the New Year. Everything was Perfect!!! Could not ask for more. House had plenty of room, and had all the amenities you could ask for. House is updated, and everything inside was perfect. Super Nice House to rent for numerous families.

Had all the kitchen appliances and gadgets you could think of, as well as games etc for the kids. Garage is packed with Summer toys, fishing poles, paddle boards, life jackets, etc so the summer would be even more fun!

If you are looking for a house to rent with plenty of space, this is the place. Highly recommended, extremely clean, virtually brand new, & the owners are the most accommodating I've had the pleasure of renting from.

Thank You!! You made our vacation a success!!

Great location with easy access to the many fun places northern Michigan has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

Matt & Jenna designed a great gathering place. The decor was clean and contemporary with rustic charm. The kitchen and open-concept living area were easy to navigate with multiple cooks and guests. We loved the extra large dining table. The bedrooms were comfortable and there was plenty of fresh linens and towels available. Even the bunk beds had comfortable mattresses. We really enjoyed having the 2 kayaks and paddle board available. We LOVED the backyard with the deck and private dock. The view was spectacular and we went out there every morning and evening while traveling to the many accessible places like Mackinac Island (by ferry), Les Cheneaux Islands (by fishing boat), Sault Ste. Marie, White Fish Point, Cross in the Woods and Petoskey during the day. The local pub, Hoppy's, was a great place for a nightcap too. The backyard fire pit location was lovely with plenty of seating and the stars were so bright for viewing on most evenings. All in all...two thumbs up. We plan to return!

Beautiful house and excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Matt and Jenna's house was beautiful and they were excellent hosts. The pontoon boat with the hoist really completed the package. It was very nice to be directly on the water with access to a boat. I would highly recommend this vacation home.
