Owner purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Owner chose Alanson
Burt Lake has been part of Nancy's life for almost 20 years. Burt Lake has always been her favorite spot to bring her family to enjoy their summer vacations year after year. Tom & Nancy decided to purchase this cozy cottage because of the great location and the warm and friendly atmosphere. They plan on bringing up their grand kids for many years to come.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location of the cottage allows us to do many of our favorite activities without having to travel long distances. There is a Rails to Trials bike riding trial in Indian River that we have ridden to Wolverine and back (you can ride all the way to Gaylord). Traveling the inland waterway is a wonderful way to spend a summer day. Visit Crooked Lake, Burt Lake and Mullett Lake all in one day. You can even continue on through Cheyboygan onto Lake Huron and visit Mackinac Island. The water is clean and clear and has a very nice sandy bottom in most areas. You can take a short 40 minute drive to the Mackinaw Bridge and the ferries to the Island. We are also just 30 minutes to Petoskey and 15 minutes from Harbor Springs. The layout of the property is very conducive to family fun. The community common area is a great way to mingle and meet new people. The shoreline is very flat, with a very nice day dock for your boat. Come and enjoy days on end of boating fun!

Wonderful stay! Super cozy
Cabin was SUPER cozy and was in an amazing location. Sunrise on the lake is absolutely gorgeous and super peaceful. Great escape from the real world for awhile! Cabin was clean, very spacious for how small and quaint it is.
Quiet and Peaceful
We stayed here in mid October. It was s rainy week but we were very warm and comfortable. The whole place was exactly as described. We hope to cone back in the summer with or whole family!
Fantastic place, hope to be back!
What a great little cabin! The view of the lake was beautiful, the cabin was just perfect and had everything we needed. Everything was very clean and in working order. The kids enjoyed playing basketball and being outside on the beautiful lawn. I hope that we will be able to come up some time next summer and enjoy the lake! Great communication with the owners!
Darling, cozy getaway on Beautiful Burt Lake!
We had a wonderful time at your beautiful property, it was our first time to Burt Lake and we couldn't have been happier. Your cottage was so cozy and had all the amenities we needed while staying. Thank you for allowing us a place to make so many happy memories with our family!
Am giving this stay five stars but wanted to mention that since I'm a writer, I forgot to ask if there was internet service. There isn't. It did me good to "take time off" from my work. I probably should do that more often. Very peaceful, very quiet--; we were there after the "high season." Beautiful view of the lake.
Relaxing week at the lake!
We had a great time staying on Burt lake for the week. So many places to go visit near by, petoskey, mackinac island, cheboygan, all with an hour and a great time. The cottage has everything you need, it was super clean and a quiet spot. We will definitely keep it on our list for future family vacations 😊
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We take pride in keeping it clean and accommodating for our guests.
Our cottage is located on the Inland Waterway providing over 45 miles of connected rivers and lakes with some of the best walleye fishing around. You can literally boat from the cabin to Lake Huron via Burt Lake - Indian River - Mullet Lake - Cheboygan River. There is an annual fishing contest put on through the Indian River Chamber every May.
