Our summer trip of 2011
Submitted: February 12, 2012
Stayed: August 2011
My wife and I own a cabin on Burt lake, just south of the bridge for over 28 years. We still make it a point to travel at least a week a summer to find other Michigan hot spots. Having a large boat we always stayed at a marinas. Selling the boat we now have a center console and needless to say we need a place to stay. These island always have been of our summer water trips and finding this cottage was a diamond in the rough. The host are fantastic, the property is very peaceful. The fixed dock easily handled our 24' with electric and great tie ups. The water still plenty deep enough considering the lake levels this is hard to find. I draft 3' and never was close to bottom. You could easily bring in a 30-40' boat with no issues. If your looking for a boating destination trip where you could come back to daily and barbecue on the dock or sit and have cocktails this is the place. Swimming at the site would be tough from the beach but the dock ladder is very efficient and water crystal clear. The cottage is very clean, beds comfortable, kitchen supplied and the owners cabin is on site but not an issue for privacy but a great location if you need any help. I would recommend this to any boaters, hikers, mountain bikers, of a place to read a book and hear a occasional boat pass bye....The islands you can really explore by boat, my advice is to boat here or at least trailer one and leave daily to see what the chain of island offer.....

Owner's Response: As owners of the above guest house. we agree wholeheartedly with renters' review. It is our goal to make one's vacation as memorable as possible. Boating in the Islands is superb and you are always able to leave the dock and feel safe within the Islands even though it is rough and windy on Lake Huron. We have always tried to accommodate boaters with complimentary transportation to town.
Welcome to our piece of paradise!!
