About Dennis Clark

We started staying at Kings Point in 1989 and now have 3 generations that enjoy staying 'Up North'.

Dennis Clark purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dennis Clark chose Michigan

We bought this property because we were familar with the area, most of the other owners. Being 'Up North' is one of our favorite things to do as a family.

What makes this cottage unique

Burt Lake and boating in the summer and skiing and snowmobiling in the winter are the main reasons we love this area.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The property was a duplex and the owners of the other side of the duplex were staying next door. You couldn't ask for better neighbors! The property was clean and fully furnished with the exception of sheets and towels as instructed. You can't beat this place for the price. This is a cabin, it's not the ritz but it was absolutely perfect for us! Close to town and activities. The kids went swimming and everyone went fishing. We really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

The rental was very nice. A little crowded with 6 people staying there. Neighbors very friendly and helpful with activities in the area. Wish there was more of a television station selection but we did not stay in the cottage much anyway. For the price it was a great value. Looking forward to staying there again.

Burt Lake Experience

  • 4 of 5

Althought the weather was just plain lousy for my vacation the cottage was nice. Since the weather was so bad and we spent more time in the cottage than normal, it would have been nice to have a better selection of TV channels.

Owner's Response: With all of the outside activities available in the Burt Lake, Petosky and Mackinaw City areas during the summer, we have not been asked for better TV service before. Although cable TV is not available in our area, we do plan to have a new TV and digital service in place by the beginning of 2009.
