Harrisville Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-6)
Nestled on the shores of Lake Huron, Bear Cottage will rekindle childhood memories of an 'Up North' vacation. Each over-sized room provides an ever changing view of the big lake. Enjoy an early morning walk along the beach as animal friends return to their forest homes. Scrabble away the day with a glass of Chardonnay as birds visit numerous lakeside feeding stations. Conclude the day roasting hot dogs over a beach-side fire.
Open windows and sea breezes will invite restful sleep.
Should a more active day be in store, visit Loggers Trace or White Pine National golf course. Catch a dinner trout from nearby ponds. Bike to nearby locales on a recently repaved and widened US 23. Visit the acclaimed NOAA shipwreck or Besser museum in nearby Alpena. You could even dive these wrecks or kayak to nearby islands. Test your appetite on a 'Mountain Burger' from the nearby Mountain Inn pub.
So......turn the cellphone off. Quiet your mind. Return to your childhood. Fully experience nature. Visit Bear Cottage.
Please note my favorite month at Bear Cottage is September. They days are still very warm but the early chill of approaching Autumn provides for excellent sleeping.
No smoking please.

About Linda Suneson Rental Agent
Reared in Motown, I left some 30 years ago, returning to an area I had vacationed at as a child. I am now retired splitting my time between Bear Cottage and Sarasota Florida. I hope you can create many fond memories of this place. I have.
Linda Suneson Rental Agent purchased this cottage in 1985
Why Linda Suneson Rental Agent chose Harrisville
This area of the Lower Peninsula is most unique. Many islands dot the big lake. The variety of wildlife is extensive. Eagles frequent the point on which Bear cottage is located. Please be aware that only the month of August is suitable for swimming. Although we have a beautiful sandy beach suitable for sunbathing, volleyball and animal viewing our Lakepoint is very rocky in the water. Either side of us you will find sand beach and sand bottom and our neighbors are most amenable to use of the beach. However if you must have a more private beach and you are anticipating an August vacation I would encourage you to look at some nearby Sturgeon Point listings. Be aware the cost will be significantly higher or the unit significantly smaller than my home. See listings 3020500 or 454129. And never pay for a sandy bottom in the months of June and July.
What makes this cottage unique
The house is 1600 square feet. All rooms are over-sized with separate sitting areas in each bedroom. The house has been updated while retaining its knotty pine charm. Enjoy my library of books accumulated over a lifetime.
The lakeside living room is separate from the roadside family room. Television viewing in the family room will not disturb living room tranquility. The 16 x 18 family room may also be used as a third bedroom as it has a queen-sized futon.
