We just returned from a wonderful week with our family at Runnin Bear. We had seven adults and our two little grandchildren and we couldn't have had a more perfect spot for our family vacation! The home is absolutely amazing and impeccably clean! We could all spread out as we pleased and each of the bedrooms were so big that each family was able to have their own sleeping space with the most comfy beds!! Having a full bath on each floor was also a real plus. I can't say enough about how nice the house was. It literally seemed like something from Better Homes and Gardens all decorated in a "beachy" theme! Big flat screen TV's, pool table, lots of games for the kids, a fully stocked kitchen with very nice cookware and dinnerware......everything was top of line both inside and out. Absolutely nothing missing!! The wrap around deck had very unique furniture, with lots of places to sit in the sunshine or relax in the shade. The house is very secluded, yet close to many of the fun tourist spots. The little ones loved the sandbar and beach at the Dockside!! The girls did some fun shopping at both Bellaire and Alden (cute little boutique shops) and the guys got some golf time in at three of the area courses. They didn't have much luck with the fish.......but maybe next time. Kudos to Linda on her organization with the entire rental process!! She is a great communicator with her renters, including sending out a complete packet of information on the surrounding area listing all events occurring during the time of your stay. We have rented in various areas in northern Michigan for the past few years and Runnin Bear is certainly at the top for a perfect vacation home for a large family!! Our family would highly recommend Runnin Bear and we look forward to returning to the Bellaire/Torch Lake area in the future. Thank you Linda!!
