Information you might be looking for
Burson's Delta Resort is located between Manistique and Munising, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. Can you find Steuben or Thunder Lake on your map or phone? We're about 4 miles from each of those. You can put our address in your GPS, but we can't guarantee it will get you here....we're in a pretty remote area. Check out our Directions tab for specifics on how to get to the Resort.
Check-in time: 4:00 p.m. EST
Check-out time: 10:00 a.m. EST
Your payment is due within a week of making your reservation! We accept personal checks, a credit card via PayPal (you will incur a 3% fee for this service and we will invoice you), or Venmo (no fee). If we don't receive payment, then we will have to remove you from the reservation book and your cabin will be open to other renters.
Unfortunately, we have experienced a couple of non-paying customers that we have trusted to bring their checkbook along and they forget it and never send payment once they leave, or that we hold the cabin for but they never show up. We now require payment within a week after making your reservation.
Here are a few things you need to know about our place..........the cabin you'll be renting has one or more double beds or queen beds. You'll need to remember to bring your own bath towels, kitchen towels and dish rags. Products such as toilet paper, paper towels and small trash bags will also need to be on your list. All bedding is provided. Maybe your kids would like to snuggle up in a sleeping bag at night that you can just throw on the bed...if you have room to transport it in your vehicle! There is a coffee maker in your cabin as well, but no TV (there is no reception in the woods) or microwave. There is also no central air nor fans. You might want to include a fan when you're packing! WiFi is available, but can be spotty at times. We have recently had the WiFi updated, but again, we cannot promise you'll have a signal at all times. The signal is especially bad towards the end of the Resort in Cedar and Spruce. You also will likely not have cell service. Periodically you can get a cell signal down on the pier, but rather than count on that, make sure to do all your calling and connecting when you're on a day trip where you can get cell service.
Our cabins are NON-SMOKING! Smoking includes, but is not limited to, cigarettes, pipes, cigars, and any other form of inhaled substance.
WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS! This is nothing personal against pets; however, we pride ourselves in having a quiet, clean, secluded Resort and promise that to our guests.
As for food and supplies, staying at our Resort somewhat resembles a camping trip if you've ever been on one. However, if you've never had to plan for camping, we usually tell people to plan their menu for the week and then bring what they can for that particular meal. Typically on vacation you don't eat huge meals, but smaller ones more frequently. We have a potluck and hot dog roast on Wednesday nights of each week, so plan on that if you'd like to join us. Feel free to grill out while you're here, but please keep in mind you'll have to do your cooking up at the fire pit in the designated area due to the ever present danger of forest fires.
If you do any traveling or sightseeing you might eat out, and of course, don't forget to plan meals of fish to eat from what you catch while you're here! On your trip here, the last big towns you may go through (Escanaba, Marquette, Munising or Manistique) are the closest towns to us with supermarkets. We are 25 miles from two of those towns and further yet (60 miles) from the other two, so make sure you stock up on what you need before you pass those!
"What should we bring to wear?" Everything up here is pretty casual....we wear jeans almost everywhere. Bring a jacket or a sweatshirt, as it can get chilly and sometimes "buggy". You might also want to bring rain gear if you plan to do things despite the weather. It can be warm too, so shorts and swimwear are equally important.
Definitely plan on fishing while at the Resort. You can go out in the boat that comes with your cabin, or fish from the pier located at the northern part of the lake down from our big cabin. We have life preservers for all ages if you don't bring your own, as this is Michigan law. There are bluegill, bass and northern pike in abundance, as well as perch and crappie. We have a screened-in fish cleaning house for your convenience located at the center of the Resort so that "not so nice" job can be done there!
Remember, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to call or drop us an email. We're here to help in any way possible that can make your stay more enjoyable!
