Everything about this cottage is great! The location is perfect as it is within walking distance of Burt Lake State Park (great beach), mini-golf, tubing, ice cream, grocery, and the down town area. We had a blast, and didn't have to worry about much during our stay as most things were provided for us (linens, kitchen items, utensils, and cookware). Also provided were board games, some DVDs, satellite TV, and lots of extras! Each year 6 of us rent a cottage, and there was more than enough room for all of us without getting in each others way. We enjoyed having a fire each night, and relaxing by the river. We also went tubing down the Sturgeon River twice, however, it is VERY fast and we had some difficulty keeping steady. Another day we rented a pontoon from Indian River Marina and cruised around Burt Lake and Indian River. Burt Lake State Park has a nice beach with picnic areas and volleyball. The beach is within walking distance, or is a VERY short drive. Walking into town was also nice, lots of cute shops, and some restaurants. This area is perfect or a summer getaway, and is a short drive to other destinations (Mackinac Island, St. Ignace, Lake Huron). Our group had an awesome stay and we will hopefully be back next year!
