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. Water toys, life jackets, and water shoes available for guest use.

**Pontoon Rental Available**

We now have a 24' Manitou Aurora Twin Tube PONTOON BOAT AVAILABLE DURING YOUR STAY! Why rent a boat from someone else when you can have it waiting at your dock when you check into the house? No need to worry about the weather for rental dates because you'll have it all week! The boat rental is only available for weekly rental, and only available to the guest who is currently staying at the house.

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

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.

Fantastic for large-family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a very large, three-generation family with young children. This property is very nicely furnished and bedrooms are ample and comfortable. Placement/number of the bathrooms was the best we’ve experienced. The hot water supply was a huge hit, especially with the young moms! Great for multiple, simultaneous use (kids’ baths, showers, kitchen activity, sinks). Ceiling fans were a welcome sight and well-used, especially on the warmer days/nights. Kitchen was terrific, especially with the constant use we made of everything. We had food out a lot for meals, snacks and grazing. Desirable improvements would include sharpened knives, wooden spoons, vegetable peelers, a tea kettle, and a garlic smasher. The convenience of washer/dryer and cleaning supplies was very welcome. The lakeside porch and dock were popular with everyone. The lake views, the moonlight and the sunsets are amazing. Stones/rocks near the shore and out a ways are much like most inland lakes in the area. While not a must, water shoes make this lake bottom easier to navigate; there are a few pair in the garage, but better to bring your own. We hope to return to this great family property. The owners are the best we’ve worked with for family vacation rentals. Understanding and helpful in every way.

Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Five couples rented this property as a way to enjoy some much needed adult time. We searched multiple properties to find something on the water. This house came with a paddle board and 2 kayaks. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate with us wanting to use the lake. However, this place far exceeded our expectations! The pictures do not do this beautiful home justice. The house itself was very spacious. The beds comfortable and the kitchen is an absolute dream! The yard was nice with plenty of room to move around, play some games, have a bonfire and grill. The lake is huge! If you have your own boat, there would be no better place to rent. Very private and quiet area, but close to anything you may need. We have already discussed renting this same place again next year. This was a great rental experience for us to start our new tradition. Thanks for allowing others to share this incredible property! We left a notebook on the counter, sharing our experience. Hoping others will do the same, so the owners can share in everyones fun! The owner was quick with responses and very easy to work with. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Came up here for a weekend with our family (6 adults, 2 toddlers, 2 babies.) From the second we walked in, the house was amazing. It looks like it was demodeled very recently and everything was updated. We couldnt believe how HUGE the kitchen was and a kitchen table that could seat 12. There are 2 nice bedrooms on the main floor with private bathrooms as well as a 1/2 bath and big laundry room. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and another full bath. The house was fully stocked with everything you could need including things for the kids. The views are amazing and great for watching the sunset over the lake. Its only a 20 minute drive to Mackinaw City which makes for a great day trip. Also checkout Cross in the Woods in Indian River, also amazing. A perfect getaway for a nice relaxing worry free time. Matt the owner was also very quick to respond to any questions and very helpful. We definitely plan on coming back again.
