SPECTACULAR SUNSETS/ BURT LAKE COTTAGE NEAR INDIAN RIVER

Burt Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom including finished loft for sleeping, 1 Bathroom, East Side Burt Lake

Quintessential Up North Cottage Living awaits you, along with brilliant sunsets and stunning views. You will discover Burt Lake is one of Northern Michigan's largest and pristine inland lakes. You will stay in our charming cottage on the East shore of Burt Lake. You will have a wonderful vacation on 70 feet of private water frontage as gentle breezes from the West caress the shoreline.

Our Burt Lake Cottage is Clean and completely smoke-free. It comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. There is a 2-seat island bar for eating and preparing meals and a 4 place table for eating in the sunroom overlooking the lake. The two bedrooms downstairs feature log beds with one queen pillow top mattress and one full mattress. The finished loft has 2 single beds. There is also a queen pull-out sofa in the living room.

You have your choice of spending time in the shady hammock, or sunning/tanning yourself on the attached patio or deck out by the lake.

You may bring your own boat and use our dock and buoy mooring. Boat hoist may also be available upon request. Two kayaks are available for guest use. Daily/weekly boat and jet ski rentals are available at various local establishments.

We have a great location for power boating, kayaking, swimming, sailing, wind-surfing, paddleboarding, and fishing. Nearby trails are nice for hiking and mountain-biking. Dozens of golf courses are in the area. The nearest is just 2 miles away.

Note: Post Labor Day weekend, we have reduced our minimum stay to 2 days to allow Late Summer Weekenders and People seeking the wonderful Fall Colors the ability to rent for a 2 or 3 day weekend. Late Summer and Fall are a beautiful time to be Up North. The lake is a little quieter and the fall colors are beautiful. It is a great time to travel down the 'Tunnel of Trees' just North of Harbor Springs on (M-119) and have a nice meal at Historic Legs Inn and Restaurant in Cross Village.

We had a fantastic time here! The cabin and the location are beautiful. Descriptions & photos are accurate; property is clean and in fine shape. The owners are very nice, and communication was excellent. Swimming & kayaking were great: the kids, 6 & 8 and good swimmers, were constantly in the water; water is extremely clear; rocky bottom; moderately shallow (not over their heads way out at the mooring buoy). No mosquitos (in August)! Cabin is very cozy & comfortable. Saw a bald eagle and heard loons. Great sunsets! Went hiking & shore-walking at Seven Springs nature preserve nearby: beautiful. Easy drive over to Petoskey; we spent two excellent days at the beach at Petoskey State Park. Spent a couple of days just hanging out right at the cabin and were totally happy. Good rock-hunting (we were surprised to find more Petoskey stones at Burt Lake than Lake Michigan). We did not partake in motorized water sports, but you easily could; we saw lots of folks having a great time tubing, etc. Great supermarket right in town with everything you'd need. Specialty shops have great local smoked fish & jerky, chocolates, ice cream, etc. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it wholehearedly. We drove all the way from southeastern PA with two kids in car, and it was worth it! Enough said.

The Cottage was just what I wanted for our stay on Burt Lake. Charming, very clean & tidy and has the "up north" feeling I was hoping for. Great location and the sunsets are terrific!

We were lucky enough to find this cottage right before our vacation started, in fact we became the first week long renters. Can't tell you enough how cute this place is. It really feels like your a kid again going up north with your parents. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and homey. The yard was a great size for playing ball or spreading out. The lake is great, crystal clear, fun sandbar to hang out on, couple of channels to explore, and don't forget the sunken boat right if the dock, pretty cool. Indian river is a nice town to explore, with Petoskey, Harbor Springs and others close by if you need something bigger. Our family really had a wonderful time and look forward to next years stay.

Everyone in our family loved our recent stay. What we liked about the cottage in the photographs on VRBO, we liked even more when we arrived and continued to appreciate throughout our stay. Ample sun and shade too when you’ve had too much sun, comfortable inside and out. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck by the lake in all sorts of weather, the concrete pad by the sun porch was perfect for outdoor dining. A number of original and operable divided light windows allow you to bring a lot of light into the interior space, and let a breeze, a wind, through carrying various scents of the north country. We were talking about renting again next year before we ever left. Functionally, the stove, the refrigerator, the grill, the shower, everything worked, hot and cold running water, no problems with drainage. It was very clean when we arrived. Our communication and experience with the owners was wonderful, so nice to do business with good people. My only hesitation in writing such a glowing review is that eventually we may find it more difficult to get in. However, I want to be helpful to the owners, they deserve it.
