Yearning for a relaxing lakeside vacation in a beautiful, serene and natural setting and aren't willing to sacrifice comfort . . . look no further! Nature enthusiasts will love hiking, snowshoeing or cross country skiing the nearly 500 acres of Colonial Point and Chaboiganing Nature Preserves that start just 100 yards out the back door. Imagine a late night dip in the lake or hot tub and millions of stars as far as the eye can see! Spend your day lakeside, sunning, swimming, fishing or harvest some abundant shoreline mint for your tea or mojito, kick back in the hammock and laze away the day! If winter sports are your passion, Burt Lake is home to many fine ice fishing locales. Or simply drill a hole in the ice while your significant other watches and basks in the luxurious hottub. Skiiers have a straight 20 minute drive to Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob Ski Resorts. Snowmobilers can easily access the Alanson to Mackinaw trail just 5 miles away, or zip across the lake to Indian River.
Put-in your boat at Maple Bay just 1/2 away and tie up to our mooring which can accomodate up to a 21' boat of non-pontoon type. We have an additional lightweight jet-ski mooring. Please limit your powered watercraft to two of the aforementioned types/sizes. Burt Lake is a beautiful clear lake and the sandy bottom starts at the end of our 88'dock. Depth is three feet at this point, gradually increasing to five feet for 75 yards or more, then deepens from there.

This is our home and not your typical vacation rental property. Perfect in all four seasons, it is nicely and comfortably furnished. We look forward to having others enjoy the beauty and serenity as much as we have. Have fun and enjoy yourselves, but if a rowdy party time is your desire, please try Houghton Lake or Cancun! Also we love animals but for liability, housekeeping and allergy reasons we do not accept pets - so please save us both some time and don't bother asking.
Great Place very clean neat and in order everthing worked the owner was greta to work with the home is off the beaten path but yet close to everthing looking forward to our next visit
We have rented many homes before, but this one stands out! It was more well-stocked than any home we have stayed in; nothing was missing. There was everything from coffee filters to spices to every pot and pan and cooking utensil imaginable. There were even frosted beer mugs waiting in the freezer! The Blossom's were so kind to share this home with all of its amenities. We found it immaculate and exactly as shown in the photos. The location was private and quiet. The dock was a wonderful place to relax. The umbrella out there was a shady plus! We had coffee on the deck each morning, with its clear views of Burt Lake. The hot tub was wonderful when we had one especially cool day. The beds were very comfortable and all the furniture was top-of-the line. The owners were especially kind and prompt to handle an issue with the dryer. I would recommend this home to any of my family or friends. In fact, we hope to return next year. Thanks again, Steve and Holly! Lynn
We had such a delightful time at this idyllic location! The owners made us feel welcome and prepared their beautiful home with everything we needed to have a tremendously comfortable and enjoyable week at the lovely Burt Lake. Venturing out to Indian River to see the Cross in the Woods, Petosky with all the neat little shops and beautiful Harbor Springs was fun, but we always enjoyed our return to our "home base" where we could cook a meal in the well appointed kitchen and just relax with a gorgeous view of the lake. The week ended with warmer temperatures, allowing a delightful time on the dock sunning and reading, making us sad that our week was coming to a close. Thank you for making this a trip to cherish! We will definitely come back to this exact location if we are ever planning another vacation to Northern Michigan!
This was heaven we enjoyed everyday we were there. The cabin is very spacious everyone had there own space. The views are great. Went fishing off the dock everyday. A wonderful and relaxing time.
We've taken annual trips up north for the last 5-6 years. This was by far one of the nicest places we've stayed at. Everything was so new and clean! We had three families stay so we each able to have our own full bathroom and there are two sets of laundry facilities! We eat in a lot and the kitchen was loaded with any type of pot or pan you could need. The owners were amazingly kind and went out of their way to meet and exceed our expectations. Thank you for a wonderful trip! I have some amazing pictures!! =)
What a beautiful home! Two families with small children came up for a cross-country ski getaway, only to have picked the one February weekend in N. Michigan without enough snow! But this home made the trip worth it. We hiked in the nature preserve across the street, visited the ice fishermen on Burt Lake (18" of ice!), went skating outdoors in Petoskey, toured other lakes in the area, relaxed in the hot tub, and more.
Our favorite features:
- Panoramic views of the lake, including the best dining table vista you'll find!
- Spacious, new, perfect hot tub with a view. 10° and blowing snow sideways? Not a problem.
- Large, open, and incredibly well-appointed kitchen (example: popcorn popper!) and grill setup.
- Basement for the kids to play.
- Very well constructed and cared-for -- this was clearly NOT built as a rental, but as a home.
- Relaxed and helpful attitude of owners.
If you are looking to spend some time in a comfortable home in a beautiful and relaxed setting, look no further.
Our only "wish" for a chilly winter weekend was to build a fire in the beautiful stone fireplace, which has a decorative insert.
