We enjoyed our stay at this cozy and quiet location. Very nice spot on Burt Lake that was just a few minutes from the places we wanted to see and friends we were visiting in Indian River and Topinabee. Dorothy and John were friendly hosts who made it feel almost like we were st…

Hi Dorothy, It was a great weekend at this place. I absolutely fell in love with the location. We had one of the best Sunset view from the backyard. Quite, serene and beautiful place to stay. The view point is amazing from the backyard. My parents and I had a great time out there…

Dorothy is a wonderful hostess. She has lots of suggestions about what to do & see in Indian River & northern Michigan. My girls and I brought board games from home & played them almost every evening. I would definitely recommend having a deck of cards, UNO, monopoly, etc if trav…

Thank you Amy for your suggestions. Did you see the games, activities we had up in the guest house on the shelving at the end of the bunk beds? I know everyone has their favorites and we cannot have all the games, so your suggestion to bring ones you really want is great! Also, our DVD player is brand new. There are lots of DVD's for rent at Ken's, our local supermarket, if people don't think to bring their own. Or they can use the many VHS's we have up there for viewing some of the old classic movies...for all ages. Again, thanks for your suggestions.
