We had a great stay at the Little Bear Lake Den

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Little Bear Lake Den. There was ample room for two families with kids. The cottage was clean and equipped with plenty of kitchen utensils. It has a nice deck with a beautiful lake view. The kids and adults enjoyed fishing and the use of the kayaks. Wonderful summer vacation place!

Very satisfied with the Lakefront Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Lakefront Cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing, enjoyable family vacation. The house was ready for us, clean, plenty of space, and all the needed amenities. It was nice having the kayaks and paddle boats (though these need some attention). The beach area was suitable for our 3 year old grandson to enjoy the water. The lake has a 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. no wake curfew which makes it more peaceful in the evenings and mornings.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage again this year. The new deck was wonderful. Grandkids had a lot of fun in the water. You have so many sand toys for them to play with they don't get bored. The cottage has everything you need to make it a relaxing week. Hope to go back next year.

Awsome Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the cottage for a little fun in the sun in Northern Michigan. The Cottage was clean, modern and spacious. The loft provided a great area for our kids to hang out and play games. The property was private with woods that separated the cottage from the neighbors. There was plenty of sandy beach to hang out on! The lake was great to swim in clean and clear. The location was great and we went on a few day trips to Traverse City and Mackinac City. We are looking forward to spending time at the cottage again next year!

We booked this property for my husband's 50th bday. It had an awesome beach and an additional space in the garage/barn to hang out for those rainy nights. Fortunately we had perfect weather the whole week and used it for our local bar hangout. We had family and friends popping in and out throughout the week and plenty of space for all. We loved having our meals on the deck overlooking the lake, which was absolutely beautiful. Even though the lake was small in size it's turquoise blue color and sandy bottom was amazing! It was so clear you could see the fish attack the fishing lures, I think that was the highlight of our stay, the fishing! We had never seen/caught so many bass as we did this stay. It was also close enough to town if you needed to hit the grocery store, about a 10 minute drive.

We had access to kayaks, paddle boats and a paddle board, which were all a big hit! We couldn't have asked for a better vacation as we ended it with a fish fry! The only negative thing I could say, was the neighbors dog liked to visit and relieve himself in our yard but that wasn't anything that ruined our stay, we would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review of Little Bear Lake Den. I will definitely be taking to our neighbor about their dog so this doesn't happen to another guest.
