It was a wonderful stay. Beautiful wooden house by a river. Climb up the stairs to sleep in the attic. Enjoy the fire pit outside. Something to do every season of the year, swimming in lake Michigan or one of the beautiful inland lakes, skiing, leave changing, birds chirping.

Very clean cabin! Excellent river front view with a patio table and plenty of chairs to sit on the deck, relax and enjoy the river. Love the firepit down by the river. Plenty of restaurants, gift shops and the grocery store is across the street. The neighbors are friendly too.

OR if your desire is to head South at Bullhead Bay, the Crooked River flows into Burt Lake. Crooked River winds toward Alanson and the clam lock raises boats two feet to the level of Crooked Lake. Navigation on the Crooked River generally limits boats to 25 feet. At Crooked Lake's west end, you are two and a half land miles, but 104 water miles to Little Traverse Bay... more
