Beautiful, spacious, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a better place for our family to stay while on vacation. Cathie's home had all of the amenities we needed and then some, including a temperpedic bed in the master! The home is incredibly clean, the furniture is comfortable, and the rooms spacious. Cathie has thought of every detail, including a very generous welcome basket on the table when we arrived. Thank you Cathie!

Beautiful, quiet property near Burt Lake

  • 5 of 5

Cathie was an excellent host! The property was beautiful and pristine when we arrived, and the house was incredibly spacious and well-kept. Burt Lake State Park is a mere 10 ish minutes down the road, and there is a boat launch near the house. Cathie was excellent about communicating well, and she made sure we felt welcome and gave great recommendations for the area. I would highly recommend this property for families or groups looking for a spacious, quiet space!
