You can enjoy all the wonderful seasons that Northwest Michigan has to offer from our newer 2 bedroom condo that offers a private bath for each bedroom and parking spaces right in front. We have a second condo in the same complex that is the same size, floor plan and cost, only different decor. If this calendar is full then check out HomeAway # 3673389 (same # for VRBO). We are located half way between Petoskey and Harbor Springs with only a 5 mile distance to both of their wonderful shopping districts and marinas. In the winter it is only 5 miles to the ski areas and the winter sports park, and within walking distance of the cross country skiing trails in the park. Summer offers a 2 mile beach and all kinds of hiking trails within a 5 minute walk right on Lake Michigan and Little Traverse Bay. The area is full of wonderful inland lakes for fishing. You may want to enjoy one of the 21 golf courses within 20 miles. Maybe you would just enjoy the sight seeing of all the beautiful lakes and Victorian homes. The shopping districts offer all kinds of unique shops and galleries. Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island and the Bridge is just a scenic 30 miles away. The Charlevoix to Harbor Springs paved bike trail is just outside our door. We like this condo complex so well and its location we bought the second one in here.

About Hazel Curtis

We are empty nesters who love to travel and have been coming to this part of NW Michigan and Lake Michigan since I was a child to visit relatives, and then when we were first married. We currently live in the Kansas City area. We have always wanted to have a place in the area that we and our married children and grandchildren could enjoy. We hope that you can enjoy our place too, when our family is not using it.

Hazel Curtis purchased this Condo in 2008

Why Hazel Curtis chose Bear Creek

Being a real estate agent I look for location, location, location and we knew as soon as we saw this condo that it had all the features we wanted, but most importantly it was located close to all the places we enjoy. We like being in the trees and backing up to the state park with just a short walk to the Lake Michigan beach.

It is only about a mile to the nearest drug store, and grocery store. We are about equal distance to downtown Petoskey and downtown Harbor Springs. We like this location so well that we own another condo in this same complex. Check it out on HomeAway #3673389 or Vrbo #3673389HA

                                                              Very clean and included everything I could think of. Beds comfortable. Great location. I would have liked to have a bit closer walk to beach, but not too bad. It was close by bike or car to State Park. Could get to Petoskey or Harbor Springs in a flash. Markets nearby too. Hosts were great! This was a great first experience with VRBO!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              I am glad that your first experience renting from a vacation owner on VRBO turned out to be a good one for you. We had rented from several others in other locations, so I knew exactly what I wanted to have in mine for my renters when we set ours up. Also, being a realtor by profession, I have always tried to run my places in a professional manner and pay attention to the needs of my clients with quick and timely responses. We have built up a good list of wonderful repeat renters through the years. Thanks for the kind remarks.

                                                              Fabulous condo

                                                              We stayed at this wonderful condo for our yearly winter break ski trip. The condo was very clean when we arrived, and had an excellent layout. The furniture was very nice and the beds were comfy. There's a great king size bed in the master bedroom. It was great to have a washer and dryer to throw our wet ski clothes into at the end of the day. The owners supplied more than enough linens which was great for a winter stay. The location is great -- right in between Harbor Springs and Petoskey with a lot of excellent dining options just down the road. I would definitely stay here again.

We have had an ongoing joke between my husband and I regarding the fact that our condo's have better beds in them than what we sleep on at home!

                                                              I am sorry the tv was a problem for you while you were there. You are the first one of several renters this winter who has had that issue. We have renters mess with the system and we try to have good instructions there for renters to work it, but some times renters really mess it up and if your are not tech savvy then it can be a challenge. We will call the cable company to check it out. Glad everything else was good for your visit.

                                                              Very nice!

                                                              Loved staying at this beautifully decorated condo. It has absolutely everything you need and more! Great location, minutes from Harper Springs and Petoskey, and only 40 minutes to Mackinac. Petoskey State Park and the beach are within walking distance. Can't wait to stay again!!


                                                              Petoskey, MI, USA

                                                              The Petoskey area has all the features you would want for your vacation or getaway. Located on Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay it offers beautiful lake views and Victorian summer homes, unique shopping districts, good harbors and beaches, plus winter ski areas and trails for multi season enjoyment. Our condo location is central to all these areas with easy access to everything you would want to do. We have 2 miles of Lake Michigan Beach, and lots of trails in the state park within a short walk of our place. Other Activities: wildlife viewing, kayaking, miniature golf
