Thank you for the hospitality while staying at your home. All went perfectly well & would like to try staying in winter to do some winter sports. House was very comfortable, nice location & I really like the private back yard.

This beautiful, comfortable home made our vacation a great experience!! Everything was as stated and the "Welcome gift" was an added and very helpful surprise. My only regret is that the time went by way too quickly!

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!
