Perfect "Up North" getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We travel around US quite a bit and for a long time my husband has just wanted a week up north to fish and relax. This rental fit the bill. The cottage is clean, and well-stocked, we lacked for nothing. Owners were accommodating and thoughtful, leaving us information on sights and restaurants nearby. The mid-week call to check in with us was an unexpected perk. A great lake for a relaxing cruise-we did travel the inland waterway, or for fishing-caught walleye and perch each day. Would recommend this rental to anyone.

Up north vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our stay at this cabin. Cabin was very clean, and there is a beautiful view of the lake. It is not far from I75 so traveling to Mackinaw city was easy. Would recommend it to anyone.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a great family vacation at this cabin. The inside had a great "cabin" feel and look but was extremely clean. The owners were very helpful and accommodating above and beyond what they needed to be. This cabin was perfect for our family with 4 kids. Everyone had their own bed. Lake is beautiful and perfect for water sports, adventure, and just relaxing. We took advantage of the location to Mackinaw City and the UP. It was very easy to get around. We would like to have stayed another week and we would definitely stay again.

Perfect family get away....

  • 5 of 5

This is our third cabin/cottage rental in the area and is by far our favorite. We plan to return again next year.

The owners have put a lot of thought into stocking the cabin and not just junky stuff, but quality items they would use themselves.

We loved the old cabin feel. Perfect for getting away from the daily grind.

Our boys played in the water constantly (bring water shoes).

There is also enough yard to play a lawn game or throw a football around. This is rare for lake front.

Thank you again to the owners!!

Burt Lake and the surrounding area is a wonderful place. This cabin, while nicely furnished, had some very real safety issues. The bathroom floor was always wet and slippery from water seepage (we had several nasty falls), the stairway to the loft is very steep without a proper railing and the front lawn slope at the fire pit made the lawn chairs tip easily. We also had a difficult time getting our security deposit back after our three week stay. All in all, not worth the price.

Owner's Response: Jim G. came to the cabin by himself to start his 3 week rental. He arrived with a fully loaded SUV pulling a boat and trailer. He asked for assistance to unload his SUV contents into the cabin, assist in putting his boat into Burt Lake and helping him place his boat on to the boat lift. I assisted without question and was happy to help. During the first week of rental, I contacted Jim to see is everything was satisfactory at the cabin. He said it was. He mentioned some water around the base of the toilet. I told him that the cabin was built on a concrete slab and that on rare high humidity days the floor might sweat near the toilet. I explained that even though there is a new comfort-height insulated toilet, that condensation will occur at the base during high humidity. I explained that there were specific towels in a large Ziploc bag with instructions for use around the base of the toilet during high humidity days. He acknowledged he understood. As for the stairs to the loft, there is a support ledge on one side of the stairway. As a responsible owner, I will install a railing on the opposite side of the staircase wall. There has never been an issue with the seating around the fire pit. There is a "No Smoking Site" line item in the short term lease contract. While there is no proof that smoking occurred during Jim's stay, there were cigarette butts in the fire pit and one inside the cabin under the sofa cushion. This was discussed with Jim along with a discussion on a piece of damaged inside furniture. The full security deposit check was written and sent out seven (7) days after Jim's departure. This was well within the 30 window for returning a security deposit. As always, I welcome feedback both during and after a stay, but this renter's rating is totally unjustified. John W.

What a great Cabin. Traditional log cabin with great fishing and boating. Beautiful views of the lake and the cabin had everything we needed. One of Michigan's best inland lakes. My family will definitely be back.
