Enjoy our well maintained cottage located less than 90 feet from the northwest shore of Burt Lake. You will have an outstanding view through the large picture window, from the deck or anywhere along the 145 foot lakefront. There is a long dock and swim platform for your enjoyment of Burt Lake's clear waters.
If you are bringing a boat the Maple Bay boat launch was significantly upgraded and completed in 2013, consisting of 2 concrete launch ramps. This facility is about 10 minutes from the cottage and makes it real easy to launch your boat. We have a mooring that can be used by our guests to moor their boat and we have a 2000 pound capacity hoist that is available if you have a boat that weighs less than that.
A 14 foot fishing boat comes with the cottage and is available for your use. Burt Lake is a great fishing site with bass, perch, walleye and brown trout. Nearby is the Maple River if your avocation is stream fishing for brook trout. There are several golf courses within a ten minute drive and another four or five within a 30 minute drive. You are located on the Inland Waterway with access to three other inland lakes and several rivers. Ultimately the Great Lakes are accessible via this waterway.
If shopping and sightseeing is more to your liking, look no further. Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Mackinaw City are a short drive away. In Mackinaw you can catch the ferry to Mackinaw Island. Rent a bike and set your own pace as there are no motor vehicles on the island.
If you are interested in a daily walk, run or biking there is a newly completed trail at the end of our driveway called the Burt Lake Trail; this was constructed during the summer of 2013 and is currently still being expanded.
Lest you forget that you are on vacation, many previous visitors say the best part is relaxing and enjoying the view.
