Why Gerri L Mesack chose Burt Lake

This Victorian is one of the first homes in Indian River, MI and part of the original Faye Martin properties. Built in the 1890's this home was just waiting to be purchased and restored to its former glory.

great house, nice location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 9 people and the house was perfect for us. We used it as a launch point to Mackinaw Island and other sights in the U.P. The location near I-75 was ideal for this purpose. And, at the end of the day, we enjoyed the nearby beach. The house was comfortable and well equipped with essential kitchen/bbq needs, beach/bath towels etc. The only suggestion from our group was that there could be fewer air fresheners throughout. For individuals with perfume allergies they were a bit of an irritant. Also, the house was so clean that they really weren't necessary. The owner was friendly, helpful and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful stay at this home. We had several couples and the number of bedrooms was perfect. The home was very clean and adorably decorated. It was in walking distance to restaurants and very close to the marina where we were keeping our boats for the weekend. Worked out perfectly. The owner was available for questions and very responsive. Would love to return in the future.
