BEAUTIFUL NORTHERN MICHIGAN LAKE COTTAGE

Burt Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy dazzling sunsets from your deck overlooking scenic Burt Lake!

Home Features:

Our cottage is a newer construction completed in spring 2008. It features a bright, open floor plan with loft. You can relax inside with stunning lake views through the two story “wall of windows” overlooking the water, or feel the cool lake breezes on the screened in porch with attached deck. There are pine ceilings throughout and a stone fireplace for an authentic 'rustic' feel, as well as a large, modern kitchen, full sized laundry room, and flat yard with picnic table on the lake side (see the link below for additional pictures)! The cottage is very well maintained, as it really is our familiy's 'home away from home'. We only rent it out a few weeks a year.

Property Features:

The secluded, wooded lot includes 90 feet of private beach front. Enjoy listening to the waves wash up against the beautiful smooth rock beach, or take a relaxing swim off the end of the dock, where the lake depth is 3-4 feet, with sandy bottom, for approximately 100 yards beyond the end of the dock. Burt lake is crystal clear - PERFECT FOR SWIMMING!! A twelve acre nature preserve immediately behind the property and the 'Seven Springs' nature preserve about a mile away offer great hiking. The property also includes a buoy for mooring small (less than 20ft) boats and use of a canoe. Two of the bedrooms feature queen sized beds, one of the bedrooms includes a standard double bed and a crib, and the forth bedroom includes bunk beds (perfect for the kids).

Be sure to see additional pictures by clicking on the 'CLICK HERE - More Photos of the Property' link below!

Area Features:

Burt lake is on northern Michigan’s “inland waterway” that includes a chain of four lakes and four fully navigable rivers. Nearby attractions include Mackinac Island, the Mackinac Bridge, and the charming resort towns of Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Sport and pontoon boat rentals are available at several local marinas. Other nearby activities include hiking, golf, horseback riding, and canoe and rafting trips.

Our family has been spending our summers on Burt Lake since 1952, when my grandparents bought the property. The original cottage in which I spent my childhood summers was built in 1907. Unfortunately, time took its toll, and we had to replace the old cottage with a new one in 2007. Today, our family spends several weeks a summer at Burt Lake, and we rent out the cottage to help with the financial costs of rebuilding. The new place is beautiful. We custom designed the floor plan to take best advantage of the location. It is bright and open. You can see the lake from almost every room (except the bathrooms and one bedroom) in the 'cottage' - even the laundry room has a lake view!

Joe purchased this cottage in 1952

We love our time on Burt Lake. It helps us connect with nature and with each other as a family. We always return refreshed, recharged, and ready to face the 'real world' again. Everyone in our family (including our two pre-school aged daughters) agree that their very favorite memories are those 'at the lake'. The environment is so relaxing - the lake air, the sound of the waves during the occasionally breezy night, and the quiet setting on a gravel road with a large woods (with hiking trails) directly behind the property makes for the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of our normal lives. Plus, there is always something to do - swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, sight seeing, or shopping in one of the nearby resort towns - when simply relaxing on the deck is not enough!

My family and I enjoyed the location of this Burt lake Cottage very much. It was a comfortable house with plenty of room for the adults and kids to have a great vacation.
The views are spectacular. There are things to do in town, or just sit at the lake and enjoy the calm. We would go back to Burt Lake and this cottage.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of eight stayed at this beautiful location. It was more than comfortable for that size group with a great floor plan. We loved the big and well-stocked kitchen, comfy great room, big deck, the dock for swimming, the canoeing and the amazing sunsets! Great location as it is close to Petoskey and Mackinac Island. Even the little town of Indian River offers some fun shopping and eateries, we enjoyed our waitress and the laid back atmosphere of "The Inn Between" as well as the food.
An overall great family vacation!!

Beauiful property

  • 5 of 5
My family had the opportunity of renting this property the 1st week of June. The property is beautiful and the cottage is very well maintained. It's a perfect place for a family vacation. The bedrooms were big and accommodating for all 6 adults and 3 small children. The 3 bathrooms were extremely helpful at bath time!
The kitchen is completely stocked with all pots/pans, dishes, etc that we needed and was large enough to fit our entire family. The cottage is centrally located to all the places we visited (Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix) and the lake is great for fishing (or swimming when it warms up.)
We will definitely be taking more family vacations to this property in the future!

A definite place to revisit

Our family spent a week here in Aug 2009 and had a fantastic time! The home is an open floor plan and so beautiful; and Burt Lake is amazing! Every amenity we could have wanted was here - dishes, linens, w/d, screened porch, deck, grill, peace and quite and more. It's also the cleanest, most beautiful lake in Michigan! We swam in crystal clear waters, jet skied, water skied, water tubed, fished and laughed for hours every day. If you want to get away from it all and reconnect with your family, this is the place! Thank you for extending your beautiful home to us.
