Cozy, relaxing cottage on 50 of waterfront, on a quiet residential street. Has fire pit for roasting marshmallows, deck, dock, hammock, 50 of lake frontage. Lake is shallow for 100 feet, sandy botton... great for small children. Cottage is surrounded by pines and aspens, keeps the cottage cool on hot days. Bedroom has new queen-sized bed, bunk room doubles as a den. Low ambient light - great for star gazing. Great place for family fun and relaxation. Bring your own linens.
I grew up in a large family north of Detroit. We went "up north" every summer for two weeks of relaxation and fun in the sun. My husband and I continued the tradition with our children, and eventually bought a cabin of our own. We love the area and love to share the cottage with others who also enjoy the lakes, the beaches, the clear night skies, the sunsets, and family time.

For us, Bear Lake is perfect. It's a beautiful lake, shallow enough close to shore for people to swim, and deep enough in the middle of the lake for boating and fishing. And, it's amazingly not crowded. We love the close access to Lake Michigan, which is just a 10 minute drive from the cottage. Lake Michigan is so awe inspiring and relaxing. And, the sand dunes, cute artsy towns, rivers for rafting or fishing are all within close proximity to the cottage. It's just a great place to relax and have fun. We hope you'll love it as much as we do!
