Beautiful relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home in a beautiful and relaxing location. The house had everything that we needed to make for a very comfortable family vacation. The house itself has pretty much everything one could ask for. There is a beautiful area to sit by the lake, a picture window with a view of the lake from inside, and an amazing wrap around deck that also provides fantastic views. The house is close enough to Indian River and Alanson for easy access to activities and food options, but far enough away to feel as though you are truly in the country. A really fantastic space for to get away from it all on a gorgeous lake!

Great place - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything! The only negative I could say would be the stairs up and down from the lake to the house but that is unavoidable. We would definitely stay here again! Tons of space, great kitchen, and well stocked with towels, linens, pots and pans. Really everything you need. We can't say enough about our stay - thank you for helping us create great memories at the lake.

Wonderful Northern Michigan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3-4 families has traveled to Northern Michigan for a summer vacation for the past 22 years. We are returning to this Burt Lake property this summer (2015) for our 5th year in a row. This lovely home is well maintained with all the amenities you will need for relaxing, as well as numerous activities in the surrounding area for a variety of interests. We always bring two boats with us, and the state park has a boat launch just down the road. There is a large deck by the water for the sunbathers, curl up on the comfy outdoor furniture to read a book, the chain of lakes to explore, and our fisherman caught 21 walleye last year, which was great for our Friday night dinner. The golfers in the group have several courses to choose from. We love the location, as we venture to Petoskey for shopping and casino that is 30 minutes away, Mackinaw City is 40 minutes away, a walking bike trail in downtown Alanson that you can take into Petoskey, and the smoked fish at the canoe place in Indian River is always a must stop. The home is beautiful with the granite countertops and hardwood floors, but it has a very "comfortable" feel without feeling like you cannot "live" there for a week. The owners are easy to work with and respond to any questions in a timely manner. We would highly recommend this vacation property!

Beautiful location, excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at the house and it was absolutely beautiful during the fall. I had experienced the beauty of the property and the surrounding area in the summer, when visitors can enjoy the waterfront access and beach area. In the autumn, the property was surrounded by the beautiful changing colors of the trees. In both seasons, the house itself was very well-maintained and clean. The management was consistently professional and pleasant when making arrangements for the rental. During both visits, I enjoyed dinner at a local restaurant, Vivio’s. Other local attractions include the “cross in the woods.”

Overall, I was impressed with maintenance of the property, the conduct of the management and the natural beauty of the locale. I have spoken highly of this rental to interested friends and family, and personally look forward to staying there again in the future.

Close to Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at this Burt Lake home several times with a group of teachers, and even a motorcycle group. The hospitality couldn't be better and the price is incredible for all that is offered. Such a relaxing location and yet so close to shopping areas and the ski/snow parks. Everything is there to have a wonderful time and make lots of memories. Very clean and beautifully decorated. It's easy to find and the Brown Trout Restaurant/Bar is close by for excellent food and a good time dancing. We love this place, and it's owners are pretty cool too!!!
