Our group of 3-4 families has traveled to Northern Michigan for a summer vacation for the past 22 years. We are returning to this Burt Lake property this summer (2015) for our 5th year in a row. This lovely home is well maintained with all the amenities you will need for relaxing, as well as numerous activities in the surrounding area for a variety of interests. We always bring two boats with us, and the state park has a boat launch just down the road. There is a large deck by the water for the sunbathers, curl up on the comfy outdoor furniture to read a book, the chain of lakes to explore, and our fisherman caught 21 walleye last year, which was great for our Friday night dinner. The golfers in the group have several courses to choose from. We love the location, as we venture to Petoskey for shopping and casino that is 30 minutes away, Mackinaw City is 40 minutes away, a walking bike trail in downtown Alanson that you can take into Petoskey, and the smoked fish at the canoe place in Indian River is always a must stop. The home is beautiful with the granite countertops and hardwood floors, but it has a very "comfortable" feel without feeling like you cannot "live" there for a week. The owners are easy to work with and respond to any questions in a timely manner. We would highly recommend this vacation property!
