PERFECT FAMILY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This clean and well-maintained cottage was perfect for our family of 10--kids and grandkids on one end and grandparents on the other! Comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen, large washer and dryer, big dining room table, extra refrigerator in the garage, free Wi-Fi, the canoe and kayaks and the rope hammock were all things we enjoyed. The cottage is set on a quiet road and we made use of the 4 bikes in the garage to explore the woods behind us. We also loved the large seating area at the end of the dock and spent many happy hours sunbathing, reading, fishing and snacking there. The steps leading down from this area shown in the photos are no longer there, but this was not a problem. Firepit on the beach was great for making s'mores in the evening. The screened porch was a delightful surprise and our favorite gathering spot for coffee in the morning. The water is quite hard and not good for drinking, but the owners supplied extra water and jugs to be filled at the free artesian well in Alanson. Scott and Cynthia were very helpful with suggestions and answers to questions we had. They made us feel very welcome with fresh flowers in every room and a cherry pie on the kitchen counter when we arrived. We had a great week and would highly recommend this beautiful home to everyone.

Cottage on Burt Lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 26, 2012

We had a fantastic time during our August week. The cottage was gorgeous and just like the pictures. The layout was conducive for relaxing, sleeping, and eating. Plenty of room although we only had four it was much larger and could accommodate ten easily. The dock was beautiful to watch the sunset from. We used the fire ring once and it was very nice. The cottage was immaculate and well maintained. We treated it as if it were our own. The owner was very good in communication and we had no issues. We would recommend the property for others. Any store or restaurant is a bit of a drive but Douglas Lake Bar & Steakhouse was very nice and one of the closest to the cottage. Hoppies Tavern and Legs Inn are also interesting dinner locations. Burt Lake is a very peaceful place and the weather can fluctuate from swimming to sweaters in a matter of hours. A Mackinac Island day trip can be done easily from this location. Be sure to bring back some fudge for everyone to enjoy!
