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.


We have 24' Manitou AuroraPONTOON available for rent 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

Beautiful, well equipped and clean home - perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just perfect for families. It's spacious, beautifully appointed and has lots of supplies available (extra water shoes, 3 person water raft, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc.). It was exceptionally clean. We rented the pontoon which was so much fun! We all highly recommend!

Beautiful (frozen) Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time in this beautiful lake house over NYE weekend. We had frigid temps, but the kids still had fun playing on the frozen lake. The drive to Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands skiing wasn't bad. The house has a well-stocked kitchen and comfortable living space and bedrooms. Highly recommend!

Big house open space nice lake access

  • 5 of 5

House is plenty big as is kitchen dining and common areas. Easy to find on GPS and immaculately clean on arrival. Pantry and baths are well stocked.

Walls are thin making it hard to sleep in and rooms don't lock otherwise everything was great. Hosts are friendly and quick communicators. Would rent again!

Beautiful house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary with a week at Burt Lake with 4 other couples. The house was beautiful, plenty of space and bathrooms for everyone. The kitchen was absolutely amazing - perfect for a large bunch of foodies who enjoy cooking big meals!! Matt and Jenna were very helpful and responded to all of our inquiries promptly. Location was beautiful too! We didn't have great weather, but we all managed to have an excellent vacation!
