Bear Lake Rental
Bear Lake Rental
Bear Lake area is in an amazing part of Michigan. Bear Lake itself has it's marina and public access. We also found ourselves going up to Conundrum café in Elberta to rent bikes and kayaks. The first day we road from Elberta to Beulah along the Betsey River and Crystal lake. Later in the week paddled for a couple hours on the Betsey. We did a few rides to Lake Michigan as well. One of the other pleasant surprises was Bear Lake Highlands. My wife and I played nine holes at twilight rates of about $32. We thought it would be like a municipal course, but exceeded our expectations. The view from the 8th green and 9th tee box was worth the price of admission. Note there are no alcoholic beverages at the clubhouse but you can get them at the Blarney gas station on your way to the course. The rental itself has been largely redone on the interior and is clean and comfortable furnishings. It is well maintained and any problems or questions were quickly rectified by Mr. Sternberg. And you can't forget the Cherry Bowl drive in at Beulah. Usually has rated G or PG movies, one of the last opportunities to show your kids what life was like back in the day!
