A safe sandy beach awaits you, along with brilliant sunsets, and stunning views. You will discover that Burt Lake is one of northern Michigan's largest and most pristine warm-water inland lakes. You will stay in our private well-equipped guesthouse and be our personal guests. Since we have only one rental unit on our 100 feet of sandy beach, you will have a quiet, relaxing vacation with complete privacy.
Our Burt Lake Guesthouse is spacious, clean, recently built, air-conditioned, and completely smoke-free. It comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, open-plan dining and living area. There is a large comfortable queen-size bedroom. You will have your own breakfast deck, which overlooks the lake. There is nothing between the guesthouse and the lake, except lawn, trees, and beach.
You have your choice of relaxing in the shady hammock, or sunning yourself directly on the beach. You may bring your own boat and use our dock and mooring.
We have the perfect beach for swimming, kayaking, or sailing. Nearby trails are great for hiking and mountain-biking. Dozens of golf courses are in the area, and the nearest is just two miles away. We are centrally located in northern Michigan, less than thirty minutes from Petoskey, Gaylord, Cheboygan, Harbor Springs, and the Mackinaw Island Ferry.
This property offers excellent value for those seeking a rental for just two people. You get a quality accommodation with a wonderful sandy beach, and all the space you need for two people. You get all the advantages of renting an expensive lake-front home, while only having to pay a fraction of the price for the guesthouse.
We also offer NUTRITIONAL RETREATS for those who are interested in leaving their old eating habits behind and embarking on a fresh start into a healthy lifestyle.
Your hosts are Jess and Pam Miller. We have been hosting guests on Burt Lake since 1992. We take pride in offering a quality accomodation with a safe sandy beach and a stunning view. We guarantee that what we offer our guests is exactly what we would expect for ourselves.
We have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. We know how important it is to have friendly, informative hosts, who offer a clean, high quality accomodation. We have also learned that a relaxing vacation is often the result of settling in at one place for a whole week, and exploring all there is to do in that one area.
If you stay with us at our Burt Lake Guesthouse, we will offer you as much personal contact as you are comfortable with. We will be happy to offer suggestions on what to do, where to eat, and how to make the most of your entire vacation.
Our areas of special interest include kayaking, sailing, mountain-biking, bicycle touring, and hiking. We are very familiar with northern Michigan, including many of the 'off the beaten track' places, that might not be mentioned in the tourist brochures.
So if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation in an area that offers stunning natural beauty, then perhaps we can help you. You should realize that over the past 22 years, our Burt Lake guesthouse is usually completely booked for June, July, and August. If you plan to reserve a week with us, we recommend that you do so as early as possible in the Spring. Many of our guests return year after year, and those who have stayed with us before tend to book early.
If you want a really peaceful vacation, try visiting us in September after most of the tourists have gone home. The weather is delightful and the water is still warm. Or perhaps you might be looking for some fall color. If that is the case, try a visit in late September or early October.
This is the perfect property for just two people. The beach is among the best on Burt Lake. The sunsets are stunning. The accommodation is clean and modern. The price, quality, and location all add up to a great value.
We stayed in this lovely waterfront guesthouse for a week. It is really well designed and furnished, the windows are placed to take full advantage of the breezes off the lake, and the air conditioning unit worked very well on a couple of extremely hot days. The kitchen is well equipped, and the layout of the cottage makes it very comfortable and practical. The hosts, Jess and Pam, were very welcoming and gave us great suggestions for bike trails and restaurants. The description on the website is very accurate, everything was impeccably clean, and we look forward to returning here again.
The photographs showing the property does a good job of describing the property. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners of the property were very friendly and hospitable. Burt lake is a very clean lake. The location of the cottage is close to other northern cities. We took trips to Harbor Springs and Mackanau Island. I would definitely recommend this property to my relatives and friends.
First off--Pam and Jess were awesome hosts! End of the day watching the sunset from the lake shore--out of the this world. Wish we could have stayed to see a few more of those! We visited Mackinac Island (half hour away), drove the Tunnel of Trees (the Trillium were out in all their glory!) and on a spur of a the moment crazy idea we drove all the way up to see the pictographs in Lake Superior Provincial Park in Canada. It was worth the long drive! We loved our stay and hope we have a chance to return sometime!
Jess and Pam's guesthouse is clean, comfortable and in a delightful location on the east shore of Burt Lake. There is a very nice sandy beach and lake is shallow for a long distance out. We found many Petosky stone along the shore. This was a fun surprise, since we thought they were only found in Petosky.
We enjoyed sailing our Super Porpoise sailboat. Fishing for walleyes is good along the drop off directly in front of the property. We caught 2 big ones one evening.
The nearby bike trails are excellent. We enjoyed riding along Mullet Lake and visiting the old fish hatchery along the trail in Oden.
Pam and Jess are friendly and interesting hosts, and we enjoyed many conversations with them.
We had a great time at Jess & Pam's guest house. The pictures posted are exactly what we expected...the beach and water were beautiful and the guest house was very clean and cozy. Jess & Pam are so friendly and helpful...we couldn't have asked for a better place to go and relax and get away from it all! Burt Lake is so pretty and the sunsets were awesome! Thanks Jess and Pam!
Very comfortable space, great location to visit other enjoyable areas, great beach for swimming and sun tanning, and great sun sets.
Great location to go to many different bicycle tail.
Jess and Pam are great host and truly live in a great location.
