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, sea breezes and a visit to the hot tub 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.

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.
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.
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.
The location of Bear cottage on a lakeside point provides many opportunities for viewing wildlife and birds.
