                                                          John G.

                                                          Awesome time. Been there many times and would go back again next year.

                                                          Ran out of TP so had to buy some. No soap only hand sanitizer

                                                          Perfect Michigan Up North Getaway

                                                          Matt L.

                                                          We just returned from a week stay at this property and it was the most relaxed vacation I've had in a long time! The cabin has everything you need to have a home away from home feel. Except that this home is right on Crooked Lake with a killer view! What a beautiful and peaceful lake. Fishing, swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, and the short pontoon ride to the sandy beach area were all awesome activities we experienced while there. The owner of the property Marc Edwards was a pleasure to meet and he was great to deal with. He also spoke about some of the history about the area and cabin. Overall a great property and owner. Hopefully we will be back someday!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Yes, it was great meeting your family and all the laughs that we had! From the 300 lbs. Bear being chased up a tree at Baby Bear by a 4 lbs Yorkie (sometimes better brave than smart!) to the people not knowing where Atlanta. MI was located.

                                                          The story of someone confusing Atlanta, GA for Atlanta MI is a classic! They ended up in Atlanta, GA and accused me of bad directions after sending them directions to go north on I-75 from TN! You'd think that the 16 page update I sent them, about the Great Lakes would have been a clue!

                                                          I gave them a full refund, after receiving a lot of grief from my fellow Financial Advisor's after I told them that someone that obtuse needed the money a lot more than I did!

                                                          We laughed that if one of your relatives made the same mistake, and end up in Atlanta, GA that there were no refunds!

                                                          Too funny and please come back!

                                                          Quiet cabin

                                                          Leanna M.

                                                          Mama bear has everything you would need during your stay, fully stocked kitchen & hand soap in bathrooms & kitchen (doesn't sound like much but I've stayed places that did not supply hand soap)! Cabin is in the woods, so there are spiders & bugs as well as small critters. The lake is picturesque! There is a small hill to the lake - which wasn't a problem for us but may be an issue for those older/less active. Atlanta is a small town that is 10-15min away. Freddie's is a nice grocery/hardware/gas station/bait shop! Mama bear is perfect to disconnect & relax!

                                                          Well maintained

                                                          Kimberly B.Canton, MI USA

                                                          Beautiful setting in the woods. Mama Bear was very nice and cozy. Enjoyed the fishing lake. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing family getaway.

                                                          Great time at a great place!

                                                          Chris H.

                                                          Everything went as smoothly as possible! The property was exactly as described and then some. The place was very comfy and clean, and the view of the lake from the patio was spectacular. Mamma Bear has all the amenities you need, and nearby Atlanta takes care of everything else you might need. A gorgeous place to stay, and we would definitely stay here again. The owner was great to work with!

                                                          Be sure to check out Lucky D's pizza in town, quite delicious!

                                                          Most beautiful place in Michigan

                                                          juan f.

                                                          I could honestly say that this property was purely beautiful and calm. The owner was really nice. I could honestly say I will come back soon. I loved it

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          The 3 Bear houses are special and so is Atlanta, MI! I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay and visited the (quite) side of Northern MI. Next time your are up, check out the Elk which are everywhere - largest Elk population east of the Mississippi!
