Why Steven Dove chose Bear Lake

This property was purchased in 2009, and rebuilt in 2011. The home is brand new and is located on one of the most amazing lakes in northern Michigan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a GREAT time at your lovely chalet. It was exactly as pictured, and very cozy and comfortable. We had all rain and cold weather, but we didn't mind a bit. Just snuggled up with books and alternating cups of cocoa and glasses of wine. Lovely!



The nicest surprise was the wonderful dog tie-out. We weren't expecting such convenience! It was so nice just to step outside and hook the pooch up. After one high-energy run down to the end of the line (and subsequent flight), she got the hang of it and enjoyed having some freedom.



We would love to return another time when the weather permits us to wander a bit further.

Stayed at the cabin with 5 other guys for rifle season deer camp. Outstanding accommodations. Everything in perfect working order. Very clean. very comfortable even for 6 adults. Even satellite TV!
Would recommend to anyone. 2 couples with kids could easily share the place. I'm sure the lake would be great in the summer. We had 20+ inches of new snow fall so didn't see much of the water!

Great accomodations

Our second stay at one of Steve's property didn't disappoint. The cabin was clean, spacious and everything our golf group needed for a short weekend getaway. The price was fair, and we would definitely rent from Steve again.

Fantastic getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
My wife and were recently married and planning a trip to have some time to ourselves. We started by going to a major U.S. city and followed that up with a couple relaxing days on Little Bear Lake. After looking at the description and photos I thought everything looked nice, but I didn't expect it to be EXACTLY as described.

Steven provided excellent directions regarding how to get to the cottage and clear instructions on what is expected of you as a renter. No ambiguity, very easy to deal with.

The cottage has a very large and open design, but still maintains a cozy atmosphere. It sits just above the lake edge with a staircase leading down to the beach. All amenities you could hope for were provided; linens, towels, toilet paper, kitchen utensils, coffee maker, fridge, stove, and pretty much everything else you would need. Besides bringing your own groceries and various shower requirements (shampoo, soap, etc), you're all set to go. There were even some board games and various brochures for local establishments for entertainment.

Little bear lake is a nice size where it is too small to pick up any heavy waves or currents, but without feeling like a pond. Very calm, nice to canoe on. My wife and I went for a walk along the roads around the lake and it took about 1.5 hours to go all the way around.

There are several nearby towns, but we didn't do much exploring after several days prior of doing the tourist-thing. It looks as though there are regular festivals and such in these towns as well as a few nice looking restaurants. You could also go to these towns to restock on supplies if need be.

For two people this place is huge and it could easily accommodate several more (that's not to say it wasn't nice for two, it is). We could see it being great for families or a few couples at once.

We had a great time and would happily return.

Time to vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home!!! When you walk in you can't help but to exhale all that stress as you have arrived!!! Beautifully decorated home....then you go out on the deck and you look down on that lake and you can't help but to think "this can't get any better"! The lake is just fantastic and so clean and clear! Boaters all wave as they drive by just so welcoming and fun! The house is in the perfect spot. We would take day trips to traverse city, Boyne city....nothing is to far away. Although you have to go down steps to get to the lake I still liked it. What a great workout lol! I really can't wait to go back.

Very beautiful, clean lake house!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at your lake house. The house is very updated and clean and the deck and beach are beautiful. We had a great family vacation. A few items that would improve the functionality of the house are a screen door, sufficient hooks/bars to hang bath towels in bathrooms, and a couple additional bedding items (mattress pads and extra blankets). These items are minor and I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing get-away! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
