Bear Lake house description

This northern decor furnished and updated Lakeside Dr. summer home is located on the sandy east shore of beautiful Bear Lake. Bear Lake is a large, all sports lake located in the northwest corner of the lower peninsula. The clean, clear, sandy bottom lake slopes gently from shore and is ideal for family fun. The large dock with Adirondack chairs allows for relaxing evenings while waiting for spectacular sunsets or sitting around the campfire. All of the necessary comforts are provided, including a full kitchen, washer and dryer, cable TV, updated bathrooms, and of course, card games and Monopoly.

The home is located 15 minutes from the world famous Acadia Bluffs golf course and also the Crystal Mountain ski slopes and golf course. Also close to Michigan's renowned Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, Pierce Stocking Drive, and a number of other hiking trails along the dunes and Michigan shoreline. Boats can be launched from the Bear Lake Marina. Miniature golf is nearby for those not yet ready for the rigors of Arcadia Bluffs, and also river kayaking and horseback riding.
In the Fall, enjoy a fall color tour or wine tasting weekend through northwest Michigans award winning wineries and scenic vineyards.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  Why the Owner Chose Bear Lake:
                  Bear Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Michigan and is situated in Michigan's popular northwest tourism area, close to the Lake Michigan shore, Sleeping Bear Dunes and all the other attractions of this vacation destination corner of the State. Bloomberg News refers to this area as the 'Hamptons of Michigan', and Good Morning America voted the Sleeping Bear Dunes area as The Most Beautiful Place in America. Not surprising since Michigan residents have favored this corner of the state for a long time. Because of its proximity to the Lake Michigan Dunes, Bear Lake shares many of the dune qualities with its hard sandy bottom. In spite of its size, the all sports lake gets little power boat traffic and is idea for kayaking.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home is located on Bear Lakes beautiful eastern sandy shore. In addition to the great beach and quality of the water, the sunsets are beautiful. Families also enjoy sitting around the camp fire at the lake and waiting for the evening stars to come out. The house features a cottage style interior and has 3 bedrooms. The see thru fireplace is viewed from the Sitting area on one side, and the Living room on the other. In addition to the kitchen dining area, a smaller dinette area at the lakeside allows for quiet morning coffee chat, and evening card games.
