About Gary LaFond

Hi, I'm Gary. I grew up near Ann Arbor Michigan in a small town called South Lyon. I went to South Lyon High School and then Grand Valley State University near Grand Rapids Michigan. A little over 14 years ago I moved to the Petoskey area through a job transfer just before my son was born and purchased the house that is listed here. We lived in the house for about 10 years before moving a little closer to my son's school. We still live in the area and enjoy everything it has to offer. We hope you enjoy the area too and have a great vacation in northern Michigan!!!

Gary LaFond purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Gary LaFond chose Burt Lake

Centrally located in the tip of the mitt. This rental is close to many attractions and right across the street from Burt Lake. With a great back yard, have a private camp fire or let the kids play on the amazing play set. When you are ready to enjoy the water it's just a 15 second drive to launch your boat at the public boat launch or just grab your towels and sun screen and make the 1 minute walk to the public beach area. At night you can enjoy some of the great restaurants in Petoskey or hit the Ozone dance floor at the Odawa casino. Odawa also has concerts if you're interested... I hear 38 Special is playing there this summer... 'so hold on loosely but don't let go' of this great rental property :-)

Great location for northern Michigan get-away!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great week at the Burt Lake Chalet. The property was as-described, and provided a perfect home-base for our family as we took day trips around northern Michigan. Our young kids enjoyed the yard and play set and we all rested easy in the comfortable beds and sheets. It was clean but not immaculate, we quickly felt right at home. The kitchen is very nice and stocked with the essentials in terms of cookware and dishes, but not much more. If you are a picky cook, it may be worth bringing your favorite pans, knives, and wine glasses, since you may not find all the cookware you need. (I couldn't find a pan there to bake my homemade pizza in, our family's Sunday night tradition.)

Since there is no wifi and in case you aren't interested in the DVDs already there, it would be worth bringing along your own favorite games and movies and doing your research of the area ahead of time (finding maps, trails, etc.) so you can unplug, kickback, and enjoy all that northern Michigan has to offer during your stay.

The owner, Gary, provided us with all we needed to know ahead of time and was great to work with as we lined up our stay.

The home was in a nice quiet area, and we enjoyed our adventures from there. There are a few trails we rode mountain bikes on right from the chalet. We also rode the paved bike trail from Oden to Petoskey one day, drove to Macinaw City, and visited Ocqueoc Falls. One night we drove up 119 to Legs Inn and enjoyed a great meal and great view. There are options for ice cream in Indian River and McDonalds has free wifi if you need it. :)

Perfect for families, we'd recommend the Burt Lake Chalet to those looking for a great value and the perfect location for a northern Michigan get-away. Thanks Gary!

Great Time!

  • 4 of 5
My family had a great time at the "Chalet!" It was the perfect family getaway! My 2 6-year old boys loved the play area and HUGE back yard! Being seconds from the boat launch was great as we traversed beautiful Burt Lake, Crooked River and Crooked Lake! We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the Chalet and loved all of it conveniences. While we didn't have local TV, it gave our family a chance to play games and build Legos! :) We also loved Northwoods Restaurant between Alanson and Oden-great food and fantastic service! We had a wonderful time!

Great Property...QUIET, SPACIOUS, AWAY from it all

  • 4 of 5
This is a great bargain for a quiet, spacious house with new bedding, possibly mattresses, too. It has a wonderful kitchen and has a table for 4 and an additional folding table and chairs. Our group of 7 was very comfortable here! The property is on a very quiet, neighborly area and is surrounded by woods, the lake and a nature center with biking and hiking trails. We cooked almost all of our own meals here and enjoyed the fact that there is no wi-fi or cable. We actually had a wonderful multi-generational family vacation and the teens were OK with no wi-fi. There was pleanty to do! There is a DVD player and provided movies. The laundry room was wonderful to have too!
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it needed a good vacuuming (carpets in the corners and bugs in windowsills and by doors). I wish he would have left one as I would have been fine running it myself. Kitchen and bathrooms, sheets, towels were clean though.

Bottom line...don't pass this one up! Its quiet, 1/2 hour from most things and a true get-away from it all!

The owner, Gary, was great to work with

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review! Our goal is to provide a ton of value so our guests will want to return again and again. After reading this review I immediately retired the vintage Kirby vacuum being used at the Chalet and replaced it with one that does a much better job getting into the corners. We're very glad to hear that you had a great time and really enjoyed the Chalet as well as the beautiful Burt Lake area! Come back soon!!
