Indian River is located on beautiful Inland Waterway connecting several lakes and this cottage is conveniently close to two public boat launches. The closest being across the Indian River, which puts you half way between Burt Lake and Mullet Lake. The other launch is in the Burt Lake State Park, which is on the south end of Burt lake. Tour the many lakes and rivers connected to the Inland Waterway or catch some of the many types of fish found here. The options on the water are plentiful.
Devoe Beach and the Burt Lake State Park are our two favorite beaches on Burt Lake. Devoe Beach also has a wonderful pier to walk, fish and take stunning photos from. Plan some time to enjoy the famed sunsets from the Beach or the pier.
The Indian River Golf Club is located down the street. Play a round at this course which meanders through the woods and be back in time to enjoy the rest of your day at the beach!
The Sturgeon River offers great river rafting tours. Take a kayak, float on a tube or pack the family in a large raft. The Sturgeon river is a fast flowing, remote trip that's sure to keep you cool on a hot summer day.
Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Cheboygan, Mackinaw City and Gaylord are all 30 minutes away. These towns offer great dining, shopping and plenty of family activities. As for winter activities, Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are located in Harbor Springs, our favorite destinations when the snow is flying.
Finish the day with a walk into town for a meal or an ice cream. Indian River is quiet, peaceful and has so much to offer which is the reason our family has been coming here for over 50 years.

Chuck and I have been together for 30 years and have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. We enjoy the outdoors, yoga and photography and we LOVE Michigan! When we met, one of the many things we had in common was that we grew up vacationing in Northern Michigan. As a result of those wonderful summers, we came to love the outdoors. It was such a part of us that we knew some day we'd have our own place here. Our son and his wife were married on Mackinac Island a few years ago and that was when we decided to purchase a cabin. We wanted to provide a special place for our children to bring their children in the years to come and we found the perfect spot. We began to rent it out a few years ago and since then, we started our own business (Mackinaw Getaways) and we now help over 20 families rent their own vacation homes. We love the outdoors and the possibilities are endless here. Swim, fish, kayak, canoe, sail, hike, bike, scuba dive, hunt, bird watch - you name it! It's all available there.
