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!

Rented for season of winter fun; great property

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, comfortable and well kept home. The owners were personable and responsive; they made everything easy. We rented the home beginning 11/30/2014 until 4/12/2015 since our teens ski almost every weekend with their ski team. Both Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are a quick 15-20 minute drive. The snowmobile trails are easily accessible (no major roads to get there) and the lake was a minute away. Snowshoeing, sledding, ice fishing, and ice skating are also close. We were able to have good "family time" and would recommend this home in any season due to its location near the lakes, golf courses, parks and some good restaurants. We are hoping to make it back this summer.

Very nice property.

  • 4 of 5

Nicely decorated. Quality furniture. Furniture may be alittle too nice for small children--concern about possible damage. Access to lake was a bit disappointing however we spent most of our time on Mullett Lake and only swam once at lakefront. Enjoyed our stay.
