Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We have been apart of Great Bear Lake for a long time now, as our children grow older, less time can be spent here. It is perfect for the smaller family, it has a ton of personality and faces west for the the most beautiful sunsets, we love it just how it is. Quiet is the word, no trains, planes or automobiles.....(lawn mowers and boats though!) This is not your average rental. This is our year round family get-away that we enjoy greatly with our 2 young children and extended relatives and friends. We hope you'll find it as relaxing as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Great Bear Lake:
Could not resist this place....

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If a trendy cafe around the corner is your thing than this is not the place for you. This is quiet, lake side fires, hanging on a raft kind of place, fishing, etc.. Turn off the cell phone and relax, bring the dog and watch the sun set till past 9pm Michigan time.......
