Property description

A perfect home for a family vacation! Very Kid friendly with lots of activities to keep them busy! Michigan's Adventure is only a 10 minute drive away and the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan are just down the road!! The Winter Sports Complex is only 5 miles away! Also, perfect for Ice Fishermen in the Winter!

Enjoy walking down the marina with your cup of coffee in the morning as the sun rises over the lake. Make sure to meet all the friendly folk on their boats!

The Bay Lane Cottage is located on the Point Marine Marina and the Bear Lake Channel which connects 2 popular water-sport lakes - Muskegon Lake and Bear Lake. Through Muskegon Lake, you can travel out to gorgeous Lake Michigan.

From the backyard, enjoy watching the many boats pass through the Bear Lake Channel or travel a mile down the road to the gorgeous Lake Michigan Shoreline and spend the day at the beach. Although a boat slip is not provided, transient slips are available.

For dinner, grill out while watching the fantastic sunsets over the Dunes or walk over to the Bear Lake Tavern across the street. They offer award winning perch along with delicious food and drinks in a fun indoor and outdoor setting. Enjoy live music on Saturday nights all summer long! Afterwards, roast yummy marshmallows over the campfire in your backyard!

The next morning, make sure you book a chartered fishing trip with one of the popular charter fishermen in the channel! Nothing better than hooking that 25 pound King Salmon while watching the sunset on Lake Michigan!

The next day, plan a trip to Michigan's Adventure Amusement Park - it's just a quick 10 minute drive away!

The Lake Michigan Shoreline and Muskegon State Park offer numerous hiking trails and many opportunities to see local wildlife including bald eagles and their nest, red fox, whitetail deer, swans, geese, ducks and our lovely seagulls! Make sure to enjoy a delicious ice cream cone at Ruth Anne's after your hike! We have warships, lighthouses, and submarines nearby that offer tours as well.

If you are a winter traveler- we offer special weekend rates

- So you can enjoy the ONLY LUGE track in Michigan at the Michigan Winter Sports Complex located just 5 minutes away. It also offers lit cross country trails, snow shoeing trails and numerous ice skating rinks. Make sure to stop in the Red Rooster Tavern afterwards for a warm tottie and live music!
