Cedarset is a family home in quiet, upscale rural neighborhood. Cedarset is on the east side of the lake so you'll have spectacular evening sunset views across the lake fall, winter and summer. The lake makes possible a full range of all-season activities. Summer offers cool breezes and a lake that varies from smooth summer waterskiing weather to white-capped rollers providing hours of swimming or sailing fun. Lots of colorful nature to watch in quiet fall and spring seasons. Take quiet walks through sparkling, snow covered wooded trails, or enjoy bright winter days of snowmobiling and cross country skiing right from home. Nearby Nubs Nob & Boyne Highlands offer downhill skiing in winter. Golf opportunities abound in this area of Michigan too. Perennial gardens, natural wooded areas, two large covered porches (one facing the lake and one the entrance) and a paved patio / barbecue area ensure beautiful, comfortable places for relaxing and enjoying the views year-round, with satellite television and whole house sound system to enhance its natural setting.
Please refer to Amentities for detailed descriptions of specific house areas.
Travel Times and Provisions:: Cedarset is about 8 hour drive from Chicago and a 4 hour drive from Detroit. Major carriers fly in and out of the Pellston Airport (Emmet County Regional) several times daily and the airport is only a 30- minute drive along scenic roads to Cedarset.
No required long drive from expressways or the airport. Once you're there…you're there!
Cedarset is conveniently accessible but located in a quiet rural area blessed with abundant forests and crystalline, spring-fed streams, rivers and lakes. It is an easy 5 minute drive from N/S Interstate expressway I-75, so once you exit and drive into the woods and beyond the noise of the freeway you can start to relax, enjoy the lake and your vacation. Within a 10- minute drive are restaurants, gas, marinas, equipment rental facilities and groceries so you will have no worries about finding supplies and you can spend your time the way you really want to, enjoying yourself.
Burt Lake and Indian River: With crystal clear water and sand bottom, Burt Lake is the 4th largest inland lake in Michigan and is an all-sports lake. It is so big that even heavy holiday boat traffic seems light. The safe gentle slope of the sandy lake floor is perfect for games and splashing around by the dock. Burt Lake is central to the “Inland Waterway,' a system of lakes and rivers used to travel all the way through to the Great Lakes. You can even travel to Mackinac Island in about 6 hours in your own boat from our shore.
Indian River has most of the grocery, boat and supplies you may need, great tourist stores for souvenir shopping and an excellent selection of restaurants and candy/ice cream shops. In town, the Sturgeon River forms an uncommon natural loop around the town with the Indian River so it is possible to tube or canoe out of town then back into town on the rivers. For those looking for nightlife or good food several nearby restaurants and bars offer great food, and live entertainment

We are pleased to share our beautiful lake home & Northern Michigan culture since we’ve had to relocate for my job serving vets. Guests can enjoy a quiet nature experience and experience the feeling of having their own lake home during their stay.
We want our guests to have a good time, have fun, and leave refreshed and ready to face the world with a joy-filled heart. Our home is a great place for family bonding and building memories. We intend that each new guest can enjoy the same well-maintained home and grounds as previous guests. We highly value guest relations and welcome back old friends, yet we also can understand some folks like the variety of changing accommodations year to year. Blessed by its natural setting, but still with the civilized improvements and amenities that come within a developed area, our home can provide that special retreat we all need from time to time.
Burt Lake is one of the largest natural spring fed lakes in Michigan, waiting a few steps from your front porch for recreation or quiet enjoyment. Our home, with its lawns and gardens, is at the end of small subdivision so children can play safely. Paved streets permit easy biking or you can take quiet walks strolling through woods and watching deer and other animals in the area's natural setting. Whether watching birds, sunsets or storms, you have a front row seat to nature from your family room.
We have loved staying at your place the past few summers. The place is always clean and neat, comfortable with the AC, and the bath/shower in both areas is EXCELLENT! … the furniture is very clean and confortable - especially the beds! We have found everything we need waiting for us when we arrive. …We have stayed in several different places over the past decade or so and the fact that we have returned to yours speaks for itself. Count us in for 2012.
The property was beautiful on a dead-end street with hardly any traffic. Great for morning walks. You can't beat the sunset views. The owner graciously let us bring our dog if it stayed outside the cottage which we did. We also added a couple of days to the end to enjoy the Labor Day weekend. I would have given a 5 star rating, however, the owner has kept our deposit after numerous times of our writing and contacting her, although she said she would return it. She seemed like a reasonable person, so I am puzzled. A recliner chair was broken when we got there - when you recline it is dangerously all the way to the max. Also, when cooking on the Jen-Aire grill in the home hamburgers the first night, it set all the smoke alarms off and they wouldn't stop. No more cooking on THAT grill! This is our first negative experience with an owner on VRBO/HomeAway.
We loved our stay. The water view and sunsets were beautiful. The kiddos had a great time. Our family enjoyed the quite seclusion, trails, ducks and deer, fresh air and even the quaint nearby town for a little shopping and nice restaurants. We haven't had such a great time at such a beautiful place in a long time. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will be back next year!
Although this property is very nice in many repects, it is becoming apparent that the owner lives out of state and is not keeping up with things. The owner was very particular about her expectations of renters, but upon arrival we found several problems. The shower in the second bath was not functional, the dock was unsound and unusable for any purpose and a safety hazzard, as were both advertised boat lifts. The mooring buoy had a chain which was so worn that it broke, which nearly resulted in extensive damage to an award winning classic boat. The seat on the couch was torn and an extensive wasp nest on an exterior wall posed a constant hazard. She forgot to mention that the the property nextdoor was an active construction site with dust and noise. The property was left by us in as good if not better condition than when we arrrived. We attempted to take care of the wasps. To top things off our security deposit was never returned despite multiple attempts to contect her. Her only response was "I'm on it this weekend" (that was over 2 months ago). We tried to be patient and give her more time that the promised 2 weeks. It has been 4 months. It is too bad but we certainly will not be back. Renters beware!
Beautiful home and property, but 6 weeks later, still have not received security deposit, after several calls and emails. Smoke alarms all went off in the middle of the night, with half the house locked up "off-limits" so could not tell if the place was on fire or a false alarm. No compensation offered except to pay for a hotel if we wanted to leave a day early. Unorganized and unprofessional owner.
Burt Lake, one of the largest spring-fed inland lakes in Michigan, offers crystal clear water and a firm sand bottom . As an all-sports lake, so big that even heavy holiday boat traffic seems light, whether your thing is boating, water sports or fishing, you will be able find the space you need to do what you like. The safe gentle slope of the lake floor from waist deep water at the dock is perfect for children’s activities and water sports like water volleyball by the dock. Indian River has most supplies you may need and great souvenir shopping, restaurants and candy/ice cream shops.
