About West Shore Vacation Properties, LLC

Owner grew up in Manistee and spent summers on Bear Lake. We live in Grand Rapids now and love to go back to visit. Love the area and enjoy windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing, swimming, sunsets, etc etc etc!!! Kids have great fun swimming etc and we don't have to worry about them getting into deep water because it gets deep gradually.

West Shore Vacation Properties, LLC purchased this house in 2013

Why West Shore Vacation Properties, LLC chose Northern Michigan

Great location and nice sandy bottom for swimming.

What makes this house unique

Few cottages on Bear Lake are right on the water and have a sunset view. This cottage was recently renovated and does not require any updating.

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, cute decor, great views...highly recommended. We had 6 kids, 4 adults. Ample space for seating, sleeping and eating. Nice beach area for the little ones. Only thing we found not provided, was a hand mixer for mashed potatoes :P Would suggest an updated grill or gas grill. Thanks to the owner for a wonderful vacation/experience :)

The Perfect Vacation

Our family has rented houses on area lakes for several years trying to find just the right one to come back to year after year. Well we found it :) owners were great to work with, home was spotless, love the HUGE fridge, great for a family vacation.

Great all sports lake with warm water in the summer. Beautiful sunset views from the cottage and deck. Fifteen minutes from incredible, non-crowded Lake Michigan beaches. 15-20 minutes from quaint shopping areas in Manistee, Onekama, Frankfort, and Crystal Lake. Crystal Mtn Ski resort is about 20min as well. Little River Casino just North of Manistee. One Hour from Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes.
