Arts and Adventure Paddlesports at BrassWind Landing. What sort of kayaking do you enjoy? Northern Michigan has one of the fastest rivers in the lower peninsula; the Sturgeon River. It actually sports some white water, fun drops, fast currents and exciting turns through the cedar trees. For a more relaxing trip the Indian River winds its way from Burt Lake beach by cottages, homes and restaurants out past I75 to a beautiful reed beds and wildlife area. We also offer kayak, canoe and paddleboard rentals for Burt Lake, Mullett Lake and Indian River to your cottage or cabin. BrassWind BoatWorks offers workshops on building and restoring tape seam wood boats.
