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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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! Many thanks, Marc

Heaven on Earth, God's Country

  • 5 of 5

We are just in from a long weekend stay at Mama Bear and already I can't wait to go back! This property is amazing! All the conveniences of lake front living and more. The cabin is roomy, the kitchen functional, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher. Cable and Internet available. Then there's the bunk house. Another fully functional out building with numerous sleep spots, a small living area, and kitchen. There is a wrap around deck on the cabin and it is a most perfect place to take in all of the lake's glory. The morning steam, the birds, including heron an eagle and MY loon! There is also an enclosed porch. I love the porch. Yet another spot to take in the glories of the lake...from a rocking chair. The dock is rustic and accommodating. There are kayaks and an option to rent a pontoon. The lake is a no wake lake and that served me well during my maiden kayak adventure.

We will be returning again and again! You'll not find a better place for a get away! We had much fun and relaxation. Mama Bear is serene and soothing to the body, mind, and soul!

Great holiday week!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at Mama Bear for a week and truly enjoyed our stay. We brought a fishing boat and had a few fishermen with us who fished every day! A nice mess of Bluegill were caught but the biggest fish were caught right off the dock (by the kids!) The bunkhouse was nice for boys to stay in, and the bathroom in there made it that much more convenient. The deck is really nice and we spent a lot of time just sitting out back looking at the fabulous view. There is a great little swimming beach not too far from the house and the proximity of Freddie's Market and JD's Pizza came in handy during the week. We hit the market a minimum of once a day. Marc responded immediately to any and all questions (before and during) our stay and Denny & Sue (maintenance and housekeeping) are only a call away (if you need them). A few of us had stayed at Papa Bear several years ago so we knew we were in good hands!

Beautiful setting, beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Mama Bear recently. We had 4 adults, 2 young kids and 2 infants. There was plenty of room for cribs and the younger ones loved the bunk beds in the loft! The new deck is beautiful and we had a great time sitting in the big rocking chairs watching the lake throughout the day. We rented the pontoon boat for the week too and it was wonderful. The guys didn't catch much of anything but they had fun trying and the kids loved riding to the beach on the boat. This is a great place to get some peace and quiet!
