                It was very nice. Updated, nice amenities, easy to use, the owner communicated well and quickly. The ONLY negative comment I can make, and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, was for the number of people in our party, and the number of people it houses, there wasn't enough seating in the living area; only 2 couches. We brought in the "bag" lawn chairs to use and it was OK. It would have been nice to have more seating for the 10 of us, but other than that, it is a great house, great area, great location, and a wonderful beach area. This would also be a great place to stay if you're wanting to do a fall color tour; or site on a beach and see fall colors.

                We absolutely loved this beautiful home. We came up during Thanksgiving and were able to relax, have a wonderful meal, and enjoy time away from the hub-bub of the big city. The home is beautifully appointed and spacious; there is plenty of room to kick-back and relax with family. We had everything we needed...kitchen was well-stocked with all the necessary items to cook a huge meal, and there were also suggestions posted for local restaurants, stores, and attractions. We enjoyed the peacefulness and solitude of the setting. While there are homes in the area we saw only two local folks (and 3 dogs!) when we went for daily walks in the snow. The owner is wonderful to work with and answered our emails quickly! We are hoping to come again sometime this summer!

                My family wanted to visit Northern Michigan and decided on the Gaylord area as it's centralized and 1-2 hours from everything we were interested in. This cabin was new, clean and well-maintained; we all loved the lake and made good use of the boats and fire pit. The owner is well-organized and did a phenomenal job contacting us and providing information prior to the trip, and, even more importantly, he was hands-off during the stay which was very appreciated. Of note: There isn't air conditioning, which was a major concern for me, but with some fans we never even thought about it. I'm not from the area so this is probably normal even in August. Satellite TV is added, but unless conditions were perfect very few channels worked; however, if you're spending too much time inside on this property you're really missing out anyway. Conclusion: Great property, great location, great owner. If we ever decide to visit Michigan again I would not hesitate to stay here and will recommend to any friends who do the same.

                We loved our stay at this site. Not only was the cottage new and immaculate, but it is on a great lake that the whole family can enjoy. We appreciated the extras such as having laundry and dish detergent, paper supplies, firewood and much more. It was also nice to have the option to bring pets for a nominal fee, as this made the vacation easier too. We would definitely consider coming back in the future and would encourage others to also consider this location for their own family vacation. A++ - Recommend Highly!

                Home was in excellent condition and very clean throughout. Owner was really helpful and pleasant to work with. Not far drive to shopping and tourist activities in Gaylord. The lake had good clarity on weekdays but was affected by high boat traffic on weekends. Dock could have been more accommodating (longer) and gas grill needed some TLC. Firewood provided was old (rotted) and none was hardwood (good for cooking). Overall experience was good, probably visit every few years.

                When we arrived at Little Bear Lake house it was immediately evident of the care taken to ensure individuals and families alike will feel comfortable and relaxed for their stay. The home was noticeably clean and in good repair. An overwhelming sense of relaxation blanketed me as I looked out the glass door that opens to the deck and overlooks the beautiful waters of Little Bear Lake! The views are spectacular! It was a great pleasure to grill on the deck as my eyes took in all the beauty; watching the chipmunks play and listening to the birds call to one another. The only downside to cooking in such a remarkable setting is the danger of getting lost in the moment and burning dinner! We were also thankful to discover that when the website said to just bring food and fun it was correct. Just about everything you need to enjoy a wonderful week at this home is provided for you. Steve has paid attention to every detail with offering such a great place for families to make great memories. Thanks again for everything!

                This was our first time at The Little Bear Lake House. Our stay was great. The house had all the luxuries of home: Stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer. There were many activities such as boating, fishing, hiking and golfing in the area. Steve, the owner, was very helpful when we called about any problems. Everyone that stayed in our house thought that it was the best place they stayed in 20 years. The house was very clean and well kept. We can't wait to come back next year! Thank you Little Bear Lake House! -Matt, Ohio

                This is our 3rd stay at Little Bear Lake House.....so it's obvious that we love staying here. It's in a great location & you can drive an hour or so in several directions if you want to go to other nice cities. We loved being able to take a "virtual tour" of the house....inside & out. And the pictures are up-to-date!!! The inside of the house is immaculate. We have a non-shedding dog and appreciate the fact there are few dog hairs found when you arrive....from other tenants. Appliances work well, and even though we don't do much cooking there, you definitely have everything needed from utensils, pots & pans, dishes, coffee maker, etc. The owner is so personable & great with any questions or concerns you may have. If you need to get in touch with him, you get a returned call quickly. We would recommend Little Bear Lake House to any one we know. Thanks for a great week....and we'll be back !

                Owner response: Thanks again for choosing to stay at our lake house, and sharing your wonderful experiences with our future guests. It's great that you're taking advantage of our "buy-one-get-one" offer too! It's such a great deal. See you again this fall!

                My husband and I and another married couple stayed in the cabin on Little Bear Lake the weekend of the January 4-6 2013. We were looking for a snowmobiling get-away and this was a great location! The cabin is very close to the trails. We opted to head away from Gaylord, to escape the snowmobile traffic and head east and it was perfect, non congested riding! The cabin itself is kept very clean, it is updated, and is well stocked for all your cooking/eating needs. The owner, Steven, was very generous and answered many of my questions through phone, email, and texts. We would love to come back and see what it is like there in the summer...

                Thank you for a great Thanksgiving! The cabin was wonderful in fact we are coming back to celebrate Christmas there! Everything was perfect and we didn't need anything, it was all there! Actually we don't want anyone to know about this cabin so that we can keep coming back when we want, but you won't be able to keep it a secret because it so so perfect!
