Charming Family-friendly Lakefront Chalet

Bedrooms 2
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Lakefront

Located on 600 ft. of Burt Lakes East side so we have beautiful sunsets. A boater's, fisherman's, snowmobile's, sightseer's paradise. We are in an association. We do not have a dock. There are two marina 5 minutes away to rent any water craft that you would like. There is a fire pit on the beach, and a grill on the porch. The Chalet sleep 8 with a TV, VCR, and DVD player for the rainy day's. It's 3 minutes from I-75. Close to shopping in Indian River. Burt Lake is located on the famous Inland waterways that stretches 40 miles and connects to Crooked Lake, Burt Lake and Mullet Lake. It is near Petoskey, Cheboygan, and Mackinaw City. Easy access to groomed, marked snowmobile trails, skiing and Ice skating. It has just recently been remodeled and updated throughout, and the outside is almost finished with the repainting. So more pictures coming soon! Thanks for looking!

About Amanda Schaller

We grew up in the area, and live about 45 minutes away from the lake house.

Amanda Schaller purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Amanda Schaller chose Indian River

We fell in love with this quaint little Chalet the moment we laid our eyes on it. It was a must have! We have noticed though that we do not have much time to spend there so we have decided to share our little piece of heaven with others. So I am hoping you find it as beautiful and charming as we do!

What makes this chalet unique

We chose this place because from the moment we walked in the door, the neighbors were friendly and welcoming, the view was unbeatable from the living room, and the sunset is incredible. Its a wonderful place for family fun, swimming, and boating.

We thoroughly enjoyed every waking moment! My kids had so much space to play, and the parents had the perfect space to relax with little worries.

Great location and comfortable chalet with beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

The chalet was conveniently located for all of the things we wanted to do on our vacation. It accommodated our group of eight nicely. While the weather did not afford us much time down by the lake we still had the opportunity to look for shells and skim stones which made my grandchildren happy. The only negatives, and these are minimal, are that very few dishes are provided and also the living room and dining room furniture were not in the best repair.

The chalet worked out well for us, owner was great to work with and we appreciate them for allowing us to use it as our home for a few days. I would rent again.

Clean, tidy, quiet cabin with friendly neighbors and a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cabin! It is so cozy and well-kept. They've thought of items, laundry detergent, upstairs a/c (you don't need or want it downstairs with that beautiful lake breeze!), games, movies, etc. We stayed with our family of six. The beach area was perfect for my kids (bring water shoes as there are a few zebra mussels buried in the otherwise pristine sandy bottom). It's just a great location in a friendly community. Hope we can make it back someday.

Everything about our stay was fabulous! The chalet is the perfect place to lay your head, enjoy meals, family time and the incredible lake. Neighbors are very kind and friendly. Chalet is fresh and clean, air conditioner on second floor appreciated the day it was 92 degrees. Not a single negative! Wish we could stay longer!

Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed! The view from the living room and deck were amazing! The large open yard area was great for the kids to play soccer and frisbee and then run down to the beach for swimming and skipping rocks. We were close to town and visiting Mackinac Island, yet felt so far away from the busyness of it all! I would love to come back to this area for some more tranquility and being "off the grid" for a few days :)
