Visit: July 29 - August 5, 2006
We give the cottage on Burns Lake our highest rating! Everything was delightful--the cottage itself, the grounds, the game room, the lake, and of course, our gracious hosts!
No motors are allowed on the lake, and it is just the right size for taking out the (provided) canoe and paddleboat. It is also quiet, with about half the shoreline bordered by the National Forest. Our 5 year old daughter caught scads of panfish and small bass, much to her delight!
The kids also couldn't get enough of the game room; we often had to pull them away from pool and air hockey to enjoy the "real" world.
And enjoy it we did! From pristine Pere Marquette Beach, to the giant dunes of Silver Lake, to the Coast Guard festival in Grand Haven, to the tranquility of Burns Lake itself, we were never at a loss for something keep us entertained.
Our sincere thanks to John and Jan for making our stay a wonderful experience.
