Sunset Shores is a three-story, A-frame cottage on the shores of scenic Burt Lake with double-decker balconies that look out over a shaded yard, a quiet lakefront and a private dock. Sunset Shores Cottages captures the traditional “up north” ambiance with cozy furniture, and exposed beams.

This home takes full advantage of its prime location on Burt Lake with large windows on the lake-facing side providing beautiful views from all three floors. The cottage has been recently renovated with new finishes, appliances and furnishings.

The main level of house opens into a foyer, and then laundry facilities, storage, a sink, a workspace counter and an extra refrigerator, perfect for shucking wet suits and adventure equipment, cleaning the catch of the day, or storing a week’s worth of food for any large group.

There is also a full bath and two private bedrooms. On the top story, a lofted sleeping area is fitted with twin beds and bunk-style bedding — the perfect clubhouse for older children. The third floor is also home to the final full bath.

The second level has 2 bedrooms, both with queen size beds.On the top floor, guests will find an open sleeping area also with two twin-sized beds and one set of twin-over full bunk beds.

Unique Features

Sunset Shores is a large, private property hemmed in by tall trees that give shade and rustle appealingly in the wind off the lake. The backyard is level and grassy, with a picnic table, a grill, a fire pit, a dock with a serene sunset-viewing bench secured at the end, and a mooring buoy.

The beach front is rocky and great for fishing, giving way to a shallow swimming area with a sandy bottom that is pleasant for swimming and wading. Combined with the home’s two balconies overlooking the outdoor space, there is no shortage of romantic places to watch the water.

Things To Do

Sunset Shores Cottage is located in Indian River, where Michigan’s most notable natural features and attractions converge to form a treasured northern vacation spot. The area is home to a number of freshwater bodies of water, including the eponymous Indian River and the Burt and Mullett Lakes — all part of the 40-mile-long Inland Waterway, providing ample opportunities for fishing, swimming, paddling, tubing and sailing. This famous waterway is bordered by beautiful scenery and a number of quaint touristing towns that make for an excellent day trip by boat.

Public boat launches are located periodically along the lakes and rivers of the waterway, along with marinas stocked with fuel, rentals, supplies and waterfront restaurants. The region is also home to an extensive system of multi-use trails, including the intersection of the North Central State Trail and the North Eastern State Trail. Together, these trails traverse more than 130 miles and cater to a variety of users including hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, snowmobiling, horseback riding and off-road vehicles. For those who like to take nature at a slower pace, the Indian River area is renowned for excellent bird watching and mushroom hunting.
