  • Great stay!


    We had the great fortune of staying in this cottage for a long weekend and it was exactly what we needed! We spent a day on Burt Lake’s crystal clear waters which we will never forget! We watched sunset on the beach, and enjoyed the local entertainment, dining, and shops. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and had ample space for our group! The owners really know how to make their guests feel welcome!! Next trip we will take the tubing tour down the Sturgeon River!

    Very cute and clean. Great location in the town.I personally recommend DeVoe Beach, which is just 3 minutes drive away. The depth is great for my 4 years old.Owner is standby responsive, which I really appreciated.

  • we found a gem


    We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your place. FIVE STARS!

    When you told us we’d be the “guinea pigs” as your first guests, I was a little concerned, but from the bottle of wine waiting for us to the location that was so close to everything, it was all we’d hoped for and more.

    Hits: Walking all over downtown Indian River. Chilling in the big chair watching the river traffic. Very comfortable bedrooms. Kitchen had all we needed. Couple of nights by the firepit. Boating on Burt Lake. Cooking out on the grill. Cool neighbors (think his name was Curt). Big yard for the kids. Looks like pretty much everything is new. Loved the decorating and smart tv’s in the rooms.

    Misses: Didn’t make it up to Mackinaw Island.

    This was our first time in Northern Michigan. Loved it. We’ll be back next summer for hopefully a longer stay.

    Thanks again for hospitality and your recommendations on things to see and do up there.
